Low FPS at KLAX

Recommended Posts

So for some reason I seem to get really low FPS when I try load a flight at KLAX even though I have most graphics set to medium or lower in P3D. I can load a flight at KSFO with the Flightbeam scenery and the PMDG 747 and get around 17-20FPS which isn't great but decent enough to be able to make a flight. However when I load up at FSDreamteam KLAX  I can only seem to get around 6-10FPS.  Now I admit I did have ORBX Southern California installed at one point but have since uninstalled it even though It didn't seem to make much difference. I also have ORBX Vector and Global installed and have tried lowering their settings as well which seemed to help a little at other airports but didn't seem to make any difference at KLAX.

 

So does anyone have any suggestions how I can improve the FPS at LAX when I have already tried turning my settings down and uninstalling addons that use a lot of resources like ORBX SoCal. This is my home airport IRL and it would be nice to be able to make flights out of there again.

 

Here is what my CFG looks like.

Try reduce the FreewayDensity=54. If you still want some road traffic, 10 is fine. Should give you at least 2-3 fps. Road traffic with Orbx ist quite fps heavy!

Thanks I will give that a try. Yeah I know ORBX can be bad for FPS. However I figured uninstalling the scenery for SoCal would help and I did turn down a lot of the vector settings such as tertiary roads and bridges and some other stuff but I guess that wasn't enough.

JT, I mentioned this in the other thread about what worked for me being turning HT off.  Instead of using affinity mask try going into BIOS and turn HT off. fire up the sim and see what happens.  It worked absolute wonders for me.

Same. I also had issues with LAX in V5 but with HT off my FPS went up and everything was fluid. For ref I have a 9900k, 2080gtx.

I don't see anywhere to turn off HT in my bios. I looked under CPU setup in bios and had a few option but non to do with Hyperthreading. I have a I5 4460 cpu.

Don't know if it matters but I have V4, also my specs are nowhere near as good as yours but can still get ok FPS at most places besides LAX

 

My specs are

I5 4460 at 3.2ghz 

Nvidia GTX 750TI 

12GB DDR3 memory

Just wanted to give an update on this issue but I just deleted the P3D CFG and now I am getting around 30FPS with even was able to start increasing some of the settings again and am still getting 30FPS. Im so happy to finally be able to start making flights again from my home airport.

Your CPU does not do Hyperthreading.
