PMDG 747-8 Adjusting Scenery Objects takes very long time

Recommended Posts


with the new 747-8 I experienced when loading a new set up flight in P3D V4.3 the loading progress bar hangs a very long time (about 15 - 20 min) at the "Adjusting Scenery Objects" step (at 82%). It takes much much much...longer than with other addons the PMDG QUOTSII 747-400 included. Has anybody experienced the same phenomenon ? Normally it takes about 3 - 5 minutes.

After that the flight is running fine without any hassles and at a very good frame rate.


ORBX: FTX Global, FTX Global Vector, OpenLC Europe etc. Airport: Aerosoft "German Airports Stuttgart EDDS".

Any suggestions and experiences are welcome !

I do not see how any aircraft can affect the P3D loading of scenery objects.  Scenery objects are those things in the scenery that are usually 3D objects such as buildings, wind farms, etc., whereas an aircraft is a simulation object loaded into the simulation once the scenery is loaded.

A long hang in the loading process usually points to a problem with the configuration of your addons.  For example a duplicate entry for an addon in the add-on.cfg file and an add-on.xml could create exactly this problem.  I know this because I've inadvertently created such problems in this manner.  Do a very careful audit of your addons.
