2.3 - P3D Finally Ready for the Big Time

Recommended Posts

Having been an early adopter of V2, I have to say I was initially underwhlemed. There was clear promise shown but 2.3 finally gets us to a polished, highly usable simulator. Im very excited and am now looking at finally retiring FSX.

 

Well done LM team.

Its truly amazing

I can now use OPUS for the weather thanks to someones link to a FSUIPC beta

 

Everything looks focused

"finally retiring FSX"

 

I'm not quite prepared to do that. I might retire FS9 though. :lol:

fsx who?  :P

 

Not me - - not until there's a PMDG 777 that works in P3D.

I was just about to post that OPUS doesn't seem to be giving real weather with 2.3  Can you help me?

Opus is loading live weather on my machine with 2.3. Have you tried the latest OPUS beta Ryan?

amazing performance improvement with 2.3, I'd say it's there now.

I'm also pretty impressed with the 2.3 patch, it really seems to handle heavy cloud depictions much better (and the visual is far better too IMHO). "Meh" on the new water, lol. I know everyone says ditch Nvidia Inspector but for me it seems to take the ragged edges off just a bit in spite of the obvious improvements in v2.3 and I can't see where it's really adversely affecting frame rates. I'm still working on finding the sweet spot with all the settings though, HT on vs HT off, etc.

 

Very pleased with what I'm seeing so far.

I leave HT on then again I have water cooling loop

 

and an i7-4790K @ 4.7G / 16G RAM / 4G VRAM

 

I am of the impression that HT with 252 ( threads: 00.11.11.11 ) helps reduce texture loading stutters

When you say amazing  performance are you talking no stutters? I have an Intel I7x64 3500 o/c 4200 with a Nvidia 650 and get mini-stutters. I would like to hear your response.

Thanks!

Some more info from LM on HyperThreading Jim:

 

We don't elevate our process priority, so Prepar3D won't choke other applications for processing resources. I would be very surprised if our changes to the default affinity mask caused any trouble in that respect Mr. Bob. Honestly, I would recommend giving the default configuration a good thorough chance, because we changed more than just the affinity mask to improve processor utilization. Our internal work scheduling should allow hyper threaded processors to realize improved paging performance without overloading the first physical core and lowering the frame-rate.

Good luck dialling in that sweet spot.

The authors are presently on vacation, but the most recent version is a release version OpusFSX 3.50. OpusFSI (their new product) is still in development and there is a public beta (4.0 beta 23) also available from the Opus download site. Both work for me with P3d 2.3.

 

and you must have FSUIPC running

It must be the beta payware version 4.934f:
