ORBX True Earth GB / FPS insane killer!

Recommended Posts

Hi, I just have bought the new ORBX True Earth Great Britain for P3D, very nice product but an insane FPS killer.

I have an i7 with the RTX 2080 and 32 GB RAM, and it's impossible to fly over London. I got between 7 to 17 FPS what makes impossible to fly.

Loading time up to 6 minutes, I thought my PC was blocked due to it stops 3 minutes in 6%.

I also own True Earth Netherlands, I have no problem to move it at 45 FPS in Amsterdam airport.

Does anybody have the same problem in FPS or loading times?

Thanks!

Hi !  There is an very interesting thread of Rob Ainscough on the ORBX Forum - TE GB Performance issues

which goes congruently with your observations.

Rob claims that he also got no problems with TE Netherlands vs TE Great Britain, and that this serious performance issue is - most likely - a P3D CPU bound problem during rendering.

Maybe this helps you (sorry, don't have both of these sceneries).

 

All the best,

Konrad

We have an 11 page thread on the problems with TE GB South here:
https://www.avsim.com/forums/topic/550009-orbx-trueearth-great-britain-south-released-for-prepar3d-v4/

Mainly caused by building objects in the scenery files located in the FTX_EU_!GBS_05_SCENERY folder. The suspect files have *3DM* in their name and there are 30 of them in that folder.

A patch to help performance is apparently being worked upon and will be released soon. In the meantime, there is a workaround described here:

It's always your pc remember that always. 

It couldnt possibly be your trying to put 10 gigs of scenery into an software engine designed 20 years ago.  

And if you think a software developer is going to say 'well it kind of works if you fly the default baron into St Athan, go on let's have your money then' 

Bottom line, it's great for GA flying not much good for tubelining into LL, KK, SS, GW with a High quality addon tube liner. 

I could of told you that before it was released you cant expect to put a massive amount of scenery whether it  be 10 gigs of blades or grass or 10 gigs of extra chimneys at battersea and council flats into a simulator designed in the late 90s and expect miracles no matter how much orbx try and shill it

For London this is what I did :

- backed up all 3M bgl files

- made a copy of the GB Scenery / texture folder 

- copied the Prealsoft London VFR AG into the GB Scenery / texture folder

Now I have a very well covered London and a much better franerate.

Loading time at London City airport : 1 min 12 sec

( With everything TE GB : 2 min 8 sec )

Not tried yet, Im not really a PMDG flyer...but I should inagine some settings compromises should make it workable

Like X-Plane was?

I'm glad it isn't just my system that got slammed then. I've gone back to horizon genx and treescapes for now, & will wait for the patch from orbx.

I don't remember xplane being dumped half way through like fsx/aces was leaving it bug ridden and a pile of gash. 

Trueearth In xp11 works fine, I've got all three.  

That's certainly true, I own all three parts as well. But this may be less a fault of Prepar3d than ORBX who first developed the XP version and later on ported it - obvisouly with flaws - to Prepar3d. Take France VFR which has the same detail and runs quite well. Or take ORBX' own TE NL which was natively developed for Prepar3d and is a joy to fly.

I think it's a common misbelieve just making the age of the ESP code responsible for shortcomings. Both code basis are the same age and have been rewritten in large parts several times, Prepar3d between versions 1 and 2 eliminating legacy assembly code and more and versions 3 and 4 while transferring to 64 bit.  

Kind regards, Michael

Didn't quite follow your logic. What has actually been replaced (if at all) to accommodate the Prealsoft London VFR AG in the Orbx GB scenery/texture files?
