Truly a culmination of all their experiences to date! I know a lot of people complain about buggy releases, but compared to their earlier models, each release gets better and better.

Has anyone else noticed what appears to be a red strobe light flickering left to right and right to left across the windscreen?

It's not clear but you need to redownload the initial installer from Carenado. It's not listed as an update.

Love the DO228 ... if anyone is interested in a challenging fuel flight, I recommend EGPB to ENJA (add your favorite weather engine) ... there is no alternate so once you commit, sink or land.

 

Cheers, Rob.

Rob, in P3D, in both the original and version 1.1 have you seen after a while the red strobe light reflected in the windscreen?  It's nice they fixed a few bugs and got the synchronizer to work but that red strobe bugs me.

Yes I have, but I think that is how it is real world ... see video strobe is top center and also under nose

 

 

So I would imagine it would reflect into the cockpit some.  But, just curious, do you have Dynamic Reflections enabled in P3D?

 

Cheers, Rob.

Hmm, running V1.1 of the Dornier with stock instrumentation, from Orbx Friday Harbour KFHR to KSEA over Orbx PNW and US LC, and I've just had my first ever P3D OOM.

 

All my previous flights in 1.0 were with the GTN750, and I had upwards of 1.7GB free at the start of my flights. I'm also running AS16/ASCA at 1024 DXT textures, GSX and FSUIPC.

 

Edit: A bit more testing and it seems I have more like 860MB with PNW loaded, and the 1.7GB relates more to all my flying around the rather more sparsely populated NZSI/NI ORBX scenery.

That area is a known frame eater with FTX PNW+FTX LC NA+FTX KFHR installed. Things get even worse if you have additional Orbx sceneries installed, such as KORS etc.

No workaround, this is hardly due to the Do228, it is the same story with any payware aircraft. Just use lower your settings. Same thing here with FSX Steam. 

 

If you're taking off from KFHR, in some cases it may help to load a light aircraft like the Trike and then your aircraft of choice. You main get some KB of VAS more. But the area is really heavy.

Not sure Rob, I'll get back to you on it as I'm not at the PC right now. But one thing for sure, real or not it's annoying so I fly with the strobe off now. And what's odd is it only happens on landing it seems. At altitude it doesn't do it.

 

I work real aircraft in real life and have never seen this. I don't see how those lights could posibly refelect like this, the one on top would throw its light directly ahead and not to the windscreen, the bottom one in under the nose so it would seem to be blocked from the cokpit. I could be wrong but unless I see video from a real cockpit showing this I think it's a bug.

My Carenado account does not show it as being updated.  My link appears to be V1.

The download Zip file has the same name, the new installation file is DO100Xv1.1.exe

Thanks a lot for the feedback. I wasn't expressly pointing the finger at the Dornier, although I was a bit suspicious the way VAS was dwindling so so rapidly.

 

I've done some more testing and it really does feel that with a 4970K at stock 4.0/4.4Ghz and a 970 that PNW/LC/Vector/Global/Friday Harbour etc is death by a thousand cuts. No one single setting or tweak will restore frame rates or memory, rather they all take a little here and a little there. If anything it just seems like the basic PNW/LC/Global/Vector geometry and texture data is so big that base frame rate performance takes a hit across the board.

 

(I did buy a 1070 to try to alleviate some of the anti aliasing load from all the AS16 clouds and SGSS, but the damn thing gives me headaches for some unknown reason so I've been unable to use it).

Dynamic Reflections are off, slider full left.

 

Ok good, there was a bug with DR which has been fixed that could have presented itself as a red strobe like effect.

This is a difficult region to fly in with many add-ons, visually stunning, but I often call PNW, SoCal, and NorCal the valley of stutters and short flights.  When I fly these regions I must reduce my graphics settings ... usually I turn off all AI (aircraft, road, boat), turn off Terrain shadow cast, drop Texture cap down to 2048 or 1024, and turn off all Vector settings especially with a Region active.

 

Cheers, Rob.

Downloaded the file from my Carenado account, there is no reference that its been updated, at least at this time, but sure enough when you extract the file, named exactly as the original, its v1.1.  Who would have thunk.

 

cheers, new version installed, happy camper again.

Good to know. Thanks for the insights. I've not flown much in PNW - it's clearly vastly heavier with all the extras than where I usually do most of my flying around my home territories of NZNI & SI.

Hey Jack

 

Yes I think I have seen this too (using v1.1). Seems more like a small red dot alternating on / off around centre of windscreen. It's subtle but it must be some kind of bug. I'll have to look at it to see if it's always there or just under select conditions. And is it connected to strobe or beacon for you?

Hello Purr, and thanks for replying.

Yes, it is as you describe perfectly.

It's seems to be connected to the red beacon and it's is not always present, it only seems to be annoying when in a descent towards landing but it's enough to be very annoying.  To the point that it would make me sick.  I know that sounds crazy but it's flashing light across the windscreen.  I too think this is a bug.

Hey, Folks,

 

Just a small tip here:

 

In regard to figuring out which version is available with Carenado, just go to the product page. It is usually shown there. You won't find it on your download page.

The only thing that will give life to this plane is a good power plant modeled, but carenado fails again.... and this time not for fault of the modeling of FSX, When the start locks in the Garrett is activate the power lever can go up and down with NOT restrictions, i hear cases when pilots can take off when the stats locks ON, (obviusly that its wrong).

But in the Garrett of carenado alabeo the power lever cant move if the start locks is activated.... this is sooooooooo false and irreal........ sadly this same garrett will be on the C441,.....

Aerosoft Bronco and Razbam SA227 they do a well garrett ....... even flysimware do it too ........ (even with the limitations of FSX)....

Hope carenado read this... hope they make more efforts to make a garrett better ...... no only eye candy....... if they can do it... better keep on pistons...... simple as that...

Im a pilot with hours with garrett ... so .... hope carenado.... hear this .....
