SP1 For iFly 747-400 Now Released

Recommended Posts

Well its nice to know they might have found an issue causing lower FPS as apart from that its going well for me with no OOM in v3.

OK, I fixed OOM and tweaked my P3D performance to match high memory demand of Ifly 747. However, the frame rates are still can get passed 15-16 and at the time drop to 8-9. Any ideas how to setup Ifly configuration to improve frame rate?

What panel do you use? 2d? Vc? Config allows one to be disabled.

 

Sliders? AI traffic? Shadows? What are your sim settings and what can you do without?

 

 

I use VC only.

 

I adjusted sliders so that heavy addons such as PMDG + FS2crew work around 20-30fpm. I expect iFly to get least 20 (given its  same level of complexity). However, so far I get only 15-16.

Now I know PMDG aircraft have "inside" option to boost/tweak performance. So I wonder if iFly has similar tweaks in that department.

I'm a new 747-400 user since SP1 and really love the look and feel of the aircraft.

 
Unfortunately as I sit here at the terminal VAS increases steadily with no input from me at a rate of roughly 100Mb every ten minutes, eventually leading to OOM.
 
Tried re-installing with all tips followed but still the same.
 
Really don't want to refund, so hoping any upcoming fix solves this within the first thirty days...

You don't state whether or not this is at a default P3D airport or an add on airport or which flavour of P3d you are using. Try and isolate the VAS usage to the aircraft or the scenery or sim platform if you can.

You should not have VAS issues unless you are into seriously complex scenery add ons.

I'm flying with it right now, approaching T/D after an 8 hour flight and my free memory is 1.55GB. I took off with 1.84GB.

 

I tried the 747 in YSSY, KLAX and KSEA (with airport addons), same thing. Your VAS issue is coming from somewhere else. Regarding performance, i can confirm that the 777 from PMDG has much better performance. I don't get serious issues, but it's noticeable how much slower the 747 is.

Hi all, thanks for your replies.

 

 

I am using P3d v3 and the tests I have done so far were confined to Aerosoft EGLL and default LOWI, both with FTX Global enabled. In both cases the VAS climbed slowly but steadily.

 

 

Like others here I too am seeing slightly worse starting VAS and lower frames than the PMDG 777 with like for like scenery. I am no expert but I do understand concerns relating to VAS and am happy overall with the compromises made to get a reasonable performance with a range of add-ons.

 

 

My worry here is not so much the level of VAS, more that VAS levels gradually increase with this aircraft but not others.
