That was disloyal to you. They chose a Bonanza as product teaser in a couple of shots :-)

Exactly my point. Especially LatinVFR KSAN has very nice 1 mi surrounding area. I hope it will merge well with Orbx.

FSDT KLAS has issues but I think I have a fix for that. Same issue as with vector.

This link tells you how to make SCA compatible with FSDT LAS, LatinVFR KSAN, KSNA and 29 palms KTNP

 

Holger has even got rid of the plateau that LAS sits on

That post covers every airport I have for SCA then, should be good to go. So is KPSP from ORBX no longer considered a global product since it falls into the new SCA area? Not that it matters , just semantics I guess.

I don't value in regions any more.. Since I usually do hybrid.. I don't have the patience to keep changing the stuff.. i always leave it in hybrid mode... so not sure If I am using all the stuff from regions.

Hybrid still uses 99.5% of the region specific features. Hybrid mode simply changes some autogen descriptions so that they work the world over.

FSDT KLAX +NGX+ Socal = OOM 

 

LA area even in a default with low settings is rough on FPS

Are you using P3Dv3? The rule of thumb for me is to never use ORBX region with PMDG.

Yep V3 I also fly smaller GA aircraft too though (Realair/Carenado etc.)  If I were to only fly heavy metal I probably wouldn't even use regions either. You can't see any details at FL380 anyways.

I get OOM's with NCA so for now I'm staying away from SoCal until I can at least upgrade from P3D v2.4 to v3.0 which evidently handles OOM's much better....

Martin...here is a good tip...

 

Fire up P3D v2.4...and place yourself at a South Cal airport, with the plane you wish to fly. Then save the flight as DEFAULT.  Shut down P3D v2.4

 

Now..fire up again...and you will ONLY load in the VAS load for that airport and surrounding South Cal region...not also any other scenes that you had as default, and from which you are changing to a South Cal destination. That will drop your VAS significantly.

V3 heh? Ok, then SoCal will also be on the not-buy list for me.  Life is too short to have to deal with OOM again.

I have FTX Global and now also Orbx So Cal. looks like i can only have one or the other active, not both. So if i fly a route from San Diego to San Francisco, There will be no Ftx after So Cal ends. I would have to land and shut the sim down, switch back to Global and then resume my flight or Also purchase Northern Cal to complete the california package.. I guess because SoCal has something that Global already has? Not sure, just asking to enlighten me.

 

Thanks,

 

Ed

 

So Cal Looks awesome now by the way!

You can select Global in "Hybrid mode" and both will be active.

Im on the fence about buying this, I hear people are getting OOMs in P3D V3 with PMDG products. I only fly those with FSDT REX ASN and ORBX Global, I would like to add SoCal but not at the risk of OOM'ing. Can anybody else chime in that run those addons?

Don't bother.  I have most of ORBX products and enjoy them.  However SOCAL is just not usable with my system, unless of course, if I had a Cray computer..................

 

The frame rates are horrible, and there is a total lack of smoothness.  My system should be able to handle it but alas.........................

Prepar3d V3.1

Turn the autogen down to "Sparse". Your system is almost identical to mine and with the Lancair Legacy I am getting about 20 fps in downtown San Diego. About 30 fps between San Diego and the mountains to the east. Hitting the limiter at 60 fps in the valley near Visilia. All with textures at 4096, mesh 100, in FSX-SE.

 

My biggest issue (actually quite a huge problem) is the color balance is WAY too green for December in southern California. Check out real world pictures of Imperial Beach and El Centro for comparison.
