Just outrageous frame rates!

Here I am, with the sim visually maxed out...over the South Island of New Zealand, with xEnviro, and all that...and pumping in the high 50's....

The experience, just keeps getting better 'n better...

New Zealand is next on my ortho4xp bucket list!  Those shots just confirmed the decision.

....not the latest and greatest tech, ya know...LOL.  My Tower was purchased in 2011 or so....LOL  Seriously, the best FPS ever, since this latest XP update.  Just keeps climbing it seems, with each release candidate.

Thanks...this Ortho4XP was cut from ARC at zl17/19/2  I was going to redo the entire country with BI(ng) but actually this ARC cut is really growing on me. No post-processing of any kind. I have the entire country captured.

I'm going to leave New Zealand as this ARC cut.

Tasmania is on the Hit List for this weekend 'leave the computer to generate and then self-shut down' deal.  I do a lot of that now....set n' forget....let Ortho4XP shut down the system, when finished. A great feature!

Just add a dash of overlay and that will spice up your frames :laugh:

I know you knew that already.

Mitch,

O man, your  damned  orthos.

I'm infected since a few days. And it's all your fault. Just ordering harddisks at the great river. Will send you the bill...:biggrin:

Btw.: Flying with orthos is a completely different animal. Now I understand why orbx withdrew.

I'm addicted to Ortho also. Had to stop using 17 and settle for 16 so I don't fill up the HD. This XPlane is awesome. Just posted my bird strike flameout on take off. Didn't know that was a possibility until it happened. Just blown away after just a few weeks into this. The Zibo 737 is up there with PMDG in its modified state.

This is my weekend tile batch....for Down Under, and the Tasmanian Devil!

New Zealand is added to the bag,...and now eyes towards Australia!

91 tiles for this set, should be done by Sunday night...maybe a creep into Monday morn in the wee hours..... :cool:

Going to pay both a visit... :)   BI at zl17/19/2

Yeah...call me an Ortho4XP Addict.  The only other addiction I can identify with, is coffee...so, two aren't too bad! :ohmy:

...and they now say my coffee addiction will ADD a few years to my life...GOOD...I'll need them to enjoy all the square miles of ortho goodness, in my XP 11 scenery arsenal! :))))))

I hope that update includes a few Western Digital multi-TB My Books, LOL!  Yep...you'll need 'em...for there's no going back to synthetic textures over land class, after you dip your toes in the water....  Nope...

Alex, you're going to have a blast....

Cheers,

What is this "ARC CUT" thing and how do you use it with Ortho4xp, I'm using Ortho4xp but Bing does not have good images for the entire New Zealand, some are great some are not. Have you had to do a lot of editing? Colour enhancements, add buildings etc?

Hi Mitch,

Is there a specific tutorial you followed for creating Ortho4XP Tiles? I know there are several about but your screenshots look amazing. I have had little too no sim time for the past month due to our wedding and a house full of people lol 

Hoping to get some time in soon when the wifey goes back to her regular shifts lol

I refer to generating a tile, as a cutting of it, or...a re-cut from another source.

ARC is one of the choices you have in the drop-down Source Menu, to generate your tiles from.  I have not had to do any color editing of any kind.  OSM adds buildings, and if you run with the overlay, then it happens for all topography.

No, Rich...seat-of-pants, manual on my virtual lap...and lots of trial-and-error.  The manual really is your best friend, here.  It comes with the download.

I had problems at first, but a week into it...smooth as glass, from thereon-out.

I have adopted a 'burnt-in'  tile recipe of zl17 (zoom factor),/19 (zoom factor for around airports and airfield properties)/and the number X, or in my case 2, meaning a zl19 zoom factor 2 km's out from all the airports and airfields. All my shots have this recipe behind the tile cooking... :)  You can set up that recipe, via the Ortho4XP.cfg file, also within the root folder directory.

Cheers,

Given that your cpu is even older than my aging i7-2700k, that's amazing.  What's your settings and monitor resolution?  It looks like my GTX980 can't keep up, because my frame is about half yours.  Very puzzling!

The i7-975 Extreme CPU, was a very aggressive build, and powerful, even in its day. Seems it still is.  I run the sim max'ed out, except for Reflections at first medium, and AA at 4x.

The EVGA FTW 1070 is a good match for it. Very happy with the card/CPU combo.

I run my monitor at: 3440x1440 native in Ultra Wide.

Do you use AI plane with XP11?  Raw power wide, my i7-2700K should be at least at par with your i7-975.  I will have to look into the graphic card of mine though.

Nope, no AI of any kind, in XP11. :)
