V5 KLAS FlyTampa VRAM -Any tips?

Recommended Posts

Any tips on getting FlyTampa KLAS to be playable in V5 with the PMDG 747? I use reasonable settings in V5 yet if I spend anytime looking at the city my VRAM quickly reaches 6.8-6.9. Vegas is the only place I have any issues, even FsDreamTeam KLAX is pretty decent for me.

I think it's the 8gb VRAM holding you back.  Go to LVFR mia/fll.  Those will be even higher

Try setting your textures in P3D's display settings to 1024. Looks like garbage but that's what 8GB users will have to use at any large airport with PBR.

You can also reduce the settings of Vegas City in the FlyTampa Configurator. I have a fairly overclocked system, but can’t get higher than 28 FPS on approach to FlyTampa KLAS with the PMDG 747.

P3d V5 KLAS Fly Tampa is rough in my sim too, PMDG 747-400: I'm running a new i9-9700KF, a

Asus Maximus Xl Hero ROG mother board, EVGA GeForce Nvidia RTX 2880, 16GB 3200 Ram, Win 10.

I overclock the Nvidia very little and see 4.5-5.5 VRAM. I

I'm bumping right up there. I have all sliders up above normal setting's, I do get to see a some of the city below at 4,000 ft.,

some times a little slow switching back an forth between views.

not much help, as I consider myself a novas in flight sim computers.

I have the same problem at LVFR KMIAV5. Very discouraging. If you have to role textures etc back to FSX level totally negates the purpose of the upgrade from a visually and performance good P3DV4 to version 5. Looks like I'll be keeping V4.5 for my study level tubes for some time until LM and developers together can get this thing stabilized.
