TE NorCal on short finals

Recommended Posts

John, which version is recommended for use with VR? SD or HD? I'm currently using TE GB with my Oculus Rift S and i'm pleased with the performance.

Depends on if you fly low and slow or not.

 

I'd go with HD if you like skimming valleys and towns or go with SD for faster loading, less GPU usage and flying > 2500ft.

 

I have SD installed myself and did a lovely VR flight in my Oculus Rift S yesterday from KHAF Half Moon Bay to KSQL San Carlos and I did not really notice the difference in texture quality once I was into my climb over the hills.

 

Keep in mind that buying HD gives you both options because you get access to SD at no cost.

Yes they are on the schedule for this year.

You keep porting and I'll keep buying.  I have almost every airport for the US for P3D, but I don't use that sim anymore.

I'm not complaining. Just saying that as this point I'm checking for release way more often than I probably should do :D

Same here!

You need to download and install Orbx Central because FTX Central don't work with the latest releases

I have ORBX central but the SD version is still asking for me to pay when I have already bought the HD version?

Thanks in advance if you can help

I think it would be a far better idea to buy the version you want to use now and wait

a little while for the problem to be fixed.

You cannot use both at the same time but you can buy either without any penalty.

You will notice that the extra required to "upgrade" from SD to HD is the exact difference

between the two prices.

Hi Nick

I have already bought the HD version.  However I have no intention of installing HD until I get a larger Also I don't want to wast both ORBX and my band width installing the HD version at this time only to unstable it once the issue is resolved Perhaps I will do that?

I just thought so I fly in Northern California this weekend if I also bye the SD version until ORBX resolve the issue then apply for a refund.

 

Thoughts?

I note the minimum system requirements state  a GTX 1070 or similar GPU. So should I expect performance issues with my 1060 or are you saying it shouldn't be bought at until until my GPU is upgraded?

Your 1060 should be fine if it has 6GB or more of VRAM. Just make sure you set your X-Plane Texture Resolution slider to 'High', not 'Maximum'.

Thanks John, sorry I am jumping the gun a bit, I am actually have P3D v4.5 and was just reading the previews, I take it the advice is the same though? 

 

cheers
