I agree but it's worth checking. It's definitely something that has happened since I got the new PC and I have switched that slide show option on and off a few times. I'll know within a couple of hours.

An encouraging update. Firstly I turned off the slideshow option but sadly it made no difference. Still worth trying though.

Next I thought about what might be different about London compared to other major cities that didn't exhibit this problem. UTX possibly. So I disabled all entries in scenery.cfg relating to UTX Europe but I left the global entries alone.

Success! No more stutters / pause every 12 seconds. Just the always present stutters as the prime meridian is crossed.

So now I have to enable each of the 7 entries in turn and establish which is causing the problem. I'm getting there. Appreciate all the advice given so far.

Following this thread with great interest as I got also UTX Europe. Keep us informed with your findings. Great work!!

Problem identified and resolved. There is an option in UTX Europe named RTX Moving Traffic for Freeways, HIghways, Motorways and Major Roads(3D). By default it is enabled.

This on its own is not a problem but if you go into Options - Traffic and set Road Vehicles to any value greater than zero it results in this pause every 12 seconds in and around London.

I set Road Vehicles to 1%. That was enough to create the problem. If you disable the RTX Moving Traffic option in UTX there's no point increasing Road Vehicles setting as no vehicles will be seen anyway.

There is a warning in UTX that that Moving Traffic option does have a very high impact on performance. Disastrously so I would suggest.

I have disabled that UTX option and set Road Vehicles to zero. End of problem.
