Disabling Orbx stuff

Recommended Posts

I suffer from low altitude lag long pauses and I was was wanting to know so how to disable orbx scenery which I am not using without uninstalling?

Is it just unticking the sceneries I am not using in the scenery indexes, rebuilding. I.e if I'm in Europe unticking socal and norcal, pnw etc as I'm not there?

Have thought about doing the XML method Matt showed on one of his videos, so you just place the scenery I need to fly but that seems complicated

Just untick any scenery, Orbx or not, that you do not want the simulator to load and

the simulator will redraw the scenery without it.

To see any difference in performance, the simulator would have to be restarted

You can make profiles either with Lorbys P4AOM (free) or with Aerosofts Simstarter, with each you can exclude areas (scenery titles) where you are not flying. I've used both, but prefer Lorbys product. It takes a bit of time time do adjust the settings but when done it is easy to switch before you fire up P3D. Though, I have to add that the benefits are not as big as expected. YMMV.
