@BMW969

Thank you for the video... purchased.  Looks best in my opinion.  No performance hit.

Can someone who has FSDT KSDF airport test it out at night and tell me if the runway and taxiways are all lit up at night. It seems to be effecting most of the FSDT stuff. Here is KCLT after installing the Orbx HD.

Disregard. It was Envtex causing the issue. If you have Airports selected in Envtex it will cause strange issues with some of the FSDT airports. For now I turned off Airport and all is working great again.

As I have watched this on my IPhone, did I see it correct that both R&D as Orbx show a reduction of 10% in framerate..

And someone reported slower AG loading.

I am definitely interested but am waiting for some comparisons regarding fps.. 

And are some buildings used in the , already heavy , True Earth series ?

R&D has several resolutions to choose from. Does Orbx have this too ?

No, Gsalden, i did not see any choose about resolution for the BuildingHD. I bought it, installed it and tried it.

I was enthusiast but i had a drop of my performances and my sim was freezing for a lil 1/4second every 30 or 40 secs and this was very annoying.

So I removed BuildingHD and reinstalled R&D and all came back to something more smooth. BuildingHD is nice but the time I sacrificed my performances

when flying for "a little more pretty" is over. And after all, it's buildings and I fly mostly very high, excepted when landing or taking off (and R&D is also pretty).

Like someone said in another topic "simple is also beautiful" 🙂

in case anyone is wondering whats actually going to be replaced by Buildings HD (from the manual)

 

Quote

Buildings HD will upgrade your autogen buildings in:
• Default FSX/P3D
• Orbx Global and the Global range of products (Vector, OpenLC, etc.)
• The Following Orbx Regions:
o North America: Pacific Northwest, Central Rocky Mountains, Northern Rocky
Mountains, Pacific Fjords, Southeast Alaska, Northern California, Southern
California
o Australia V1 and V2
o New Zealand North and South
o Europe: Norway, England, Wales, Scotland, Ireland, Northern Ireland
• Orbx Airports: Houses and small buildings in the surrounding area are usually autogen,
and thus will see an upgrade.
• Any third-party sceneries that use default autogen buildings.

Which products will not be upgraded by Buildings HD?
• Orbx TrueEarth Regions: TrueEarth regions make heavy use of custom buildings, which
are not upgraded by Buildings HD.
• Orbx Germany North and Germany South Regions: These regions use custom
autogen textures carefully made by Frank Schnibben and it was decided during
development that they would not be replaced by Buildings HD.
• Orbx CityScapes: Our cityscape products primarily use custom buildings, which are not
modified by Buildings HD. However, some smaller buildings and houses may be
improved.
• Drzewiecki Design Cities and Other Similar City Addons: These CityScape – style
addons from other vendors consist mostly of custom-building objects, which are not
modified by Buildings HD. However, some smaller buildings and houses may be
improved.

Thanks for the info.

I could rename the main Texture folder to something else and add an empty Texture folder where Orbx will install the te textures.

I then can resuze them to 1024 and use them afterwards ..

I came to the conclusion that the optimal resolution is 2K.

With 4K, drawing black textures of objects is a bit worse.

I use Rob's settings:
  ENABLE_MEMORY_OPTIMIZATION=0

MAX_TEXTURE_REQUEST_DISTANCE=320000.000000
SCENERY_DRAW_DISTANCE=53333.335938

FPS does not change!

Sorry but this is not exact.
I have purchased both RD and ORBX presets.
4K has a serious impact on frames when Autogen Building Density is at Very High and Texture Resolution Ultra- 4096x 4096, no matter the product. (average 20% loss)

2K is smooth on my rig though and I hope ORBX will add the option to choose resolution because their new textures are just awesome.
