Thanks for the heads-up. It doesn't seem available in my FTX Central at the time of writing, though I assume it'll pop up soon.

I had it for V3 and got rid of it for VAS.. For image quality and immersion, is it still worth it ?

Installed it and took a quick test flight around CYZF. Yes, it is worth it in my opinion. What a difference! Without Vector, the shoreline of the Great Slave Lake is not very precise in its outline and I had cliffs virtually everywhere. With Vector, the shoreline is much more detailed, and the elevation of the landscape descends smoothly toward the lake.  Frame rates were very good, but I will see how they are with a PMDG plane in a dense autogen area. 

There is a new autoconfiguration tool that searches through your scenery files and disabled elevation fixes for specific third-party airports (or maybe I didn't notice that tool before).

Frankly I haven't missed Vector since V4 came along and it did affect frame rate previously.

As I mainly fly in Orbx Regions does it operate there / is it useful there?  

And if I have it installed will it affect my frame rates whether it is contributing or not?

Thanks for any guidance.

All downloaded and everything seems fine in V4.

The regions have their own vector data so Orbx Vector doesn't do anything in those areas.

Elsewhere, your frame rate will depend on your Vector settings/P3D settings/where you are in the world/your hardware. Outside of urban areas with lots of roads, I don't find that Vector has any noticeable frame rate hit.

I'm more interested in getting the airports. I've gotten used to not having Vector.

I've experienced the same thing.

Oh no, that doesn't sound good.

That has always been a pet peeve of mine, didn't know Vector was the culprit.

Just a personal opinion, but I think Vector 1.52 has just enhanced my opinion of P3D v4. No FPS hit, no elevation hits, and very smooth. This is just my opinion after a flight in Southern Alaska.

John
