Help with FSX terrain loading issue

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

On some flights I have been having issues with terrain loading, specifically when using a airliner addon (lately with the PMDG 777, but also happens with the level-d 767) wherein the aircraft "pauses" and struggles momentarily during a turn during climbout, apparently while the terrain loads/adjusts resolution.

Then when the terrain loads the aircraft rushes its turn to catch up to where it was supposed to be, literally as if something held it up then released it. Then it continues doing so until its straightens out on a heading. 

Basically the airplane stops what its doing while it waits for the terrain to load. The sim doesnt freeze or stutter but if you go to an external view the terrain scenery (not the airport addon) pops like crazy adjusting its resolution from blurry to sharp.  Its extremely annoying and most noticeable during turns at low altitude (like following a SID.)

I've been researching and experimenting different settings for days now - LOD radiuses, FFTF, mesh complexities/resolutions, bufferpools, nvidia settings, AA, etc - you name it and I've tried it. I've read Nicks guide, Costas guide, I've messed with the relevant cfg settings and still cant pin down the root cause. Only thing I hevent tried is set everything to zero on the scenery settings!

I run FSX Gold on a dedicated SSD and Intel i5-7400 @3.00 ghz with W10 and the usual standard FSX addons (AS16, FTX global, airport sceneries,) nothing exotic at all.

Oddly enough when I ran FSX on my older system (Core2quad) I never ever had this issue, with the same addons.

I've lost my mind with so much testing I dont know where to look at anymore.

I know its a pretty vague question since there could be many causes, but if anyone understands what this is about, I'd greatly appreciate any tips as to what direction I should be looking at. Ive wasted too much time trying to solve this on my own.

Many thanks,

Carlos

Thanks, I still cant pin the problem down.

To illustrate, check out the video below beginning at 02:35:

https://youtu.be/T_o89nNFV4c

Notice that as the plane begins its turn, it kind of hangs, then all of a sudden it continues the turn rapidly to make up for the time it hung up. 

It also happens at around the 1:22 minute mark. It doesnt matter what slider settings I choose: no autogen, low mesh complexity, low everything and this still happens.

I recreated the cfg (see below for the newest config.) 

Again, any help would be greatly appreciated

Carlos
