ORBx NCA and SCA with non tubeliners

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone I have slowly added a few GA aircraft to my hangar recently which has been fun, since I mainly fly PMDG, Majestic etc level aircraft.

I know flying tubes is pretty taxing on systems Through these areas but how do you find frames and performance for things like the Alabeo C421 and Virtex DA62 type aircraft?

If these fly ok through these areas, without much stuttering and pauses - I would seriously consider picking up some like NCA and KTVL, KMRY etc.

No willing to ask on ORBx site as I want unbiased opinions.

If you fly through them with tubeliners you'll be fine with GA.  With a few exceptions GA is a lot friendlier on fps than PMDG type stuff

SoCal is imo the worst running ftx area no matter what you fly. It’s completely liveable in GA stuff, it’s just a matter of if your computer is a potato or not.

 

I’ve  flown through 421 all over both regions. My favorite little hidey hole is E45 in NorCal, it’s a bit east of Oakland.

I fly tubeliners mainly and the reason I haven’t bought either NCA or SCA is because of the load of them plus tubeliners, traffic and wx.

Interested in how the Alabeo C421 would go in these areas with the complex scenery.

No problem with my A2A aircraft except in the San Diego area. Also  cranking up the the traffic slider has a big impact in SCA because of the numerous airfields around LAX.

No problem in NCA.

No problem for me either when using a PMDG airliner.

What I have found very useful is to go the following folders:

  • ORBX\FTX_NA\FTX_NA_SCA05_SCENERY\scenery
  • ORBX\FTX_NA\FTX_NA_NCA05_SCENERY\scenery

and move files such as 'ADE_FTX_SCA_00CA.bgl' 'ADE_FTX_SCA_00CA_CVX.bgl' and 'FTX_SCA_objects_00CA_PLC.bgl' to a separate folder. There's about 900 of these files in both locations.

That prevents the ~300 Orbx 'enhanced' airfields in both NorCal and SoCal from displaying. You can add back the airports that you want to visit, unless you have 3rd party alternatives.

I also turn off powerline towers in the Orbx Central control panel for each product.


Balance is key.

GA flying should let you run higher settings than in an airliner, however, if you try to display very dense autogen to the horizon, have GA and airliner traffic at 100%, shadows cast and receive on all objects and cloud density at maximum, any PC is going to struggle.

I would imagine no issues.  What is your system specs?

A close second is FTX EU London. With UK2K EGLL & EGLC it becomes a no fly zone on my aging system.

If you want good performance in Southern California I would suggest looking into simwestSOCAL for scenery.

Photoreal scenery you'll want to fly thru, not over
