Global Range Orbx

Outstanding products but the Vector is very demanding on resources and is was difficult for me to find the sweet spot.

The other-ones are excellent, IMHO a must.

What kind of PC specs do you have?

Vector is no longer supported for new installations. There is not much hit with just Global, if you want something to fill bad about purchasing, that would probably the California areas. Lots of comment about bad frames with Cal.

How is the FPS hit please, in v4 or preferably v5?

Annoys me that I have to pay for better textures but regardless, thanx for any responses, brothers.

If you just go with the Global texture pack it will be the same as in FSX, no performance hit since they just replace default textures with the same sized textures and add the autogen lights. There shouldn’t be any performance hit vs default.

Yup, would not fly without it... :cool:

And, if you are not on P3D V5, add the Free Global Airports pack..

I’d say so, however to get the most potential from it I’d recommend their landclass packs as well. I never went for their Vector package and used UT for years. I also never went for their region packs since most of my flying is in tubes and didn’t need the extra detail and performance hit that generally accompanied them.

To be frank, if MSFS pans out to be as good as what we think it can be, our favorite a/c become available for it, I don’t think there will ever be a need to purchase another ground based texture or vector data package again. Addon airports and planes, yes, but ground based enhancements, probably not.

Yeah trouble is for many of us its an expensive transition, add-ons like my PMDG birds are major investments.

Using P3Dv.4 the framerate impact is there but it's manageable.

For example, I have installed: Global + Vector + EU Germany North + HD Trees + HD Buildings + Airport Addon + Rex Environment + AS

I have my framerates capped at 22 and get around 18-22. Sliders are in the middle. Manageable. The biggest culprits are the badly optimized Aerosoft airports.

My PC is over 4 years old.

ORBX frequently has sales, a few times a year everything is 50% off. A no brainer IMHO.

I have not installed Vector in P3D since 4.2 more trouble than it`s worth for my liking, I have all global and regional scenery installed all large airports, but judging by the feedback from some depends what GPU you have plays a big part since  DX12.
