Thank you Jim for the heads up.

I think I heard it was a huge VRAM eater in v5 so i have not looked into installing it within v5, has this issue been resolved/worked on. what is its current state in v5 please.

Thanks again.

I haven't run this version yet. The last one I did run in v5 and the only install then was "high resolution". With my 6 gig card Vram was running high 4's. I was waiting for the low resolution install and it is now here. Just installed and no time to try out right now.

1.1.34 beta comes with the option of 1024x2014 outside textures instead of standard hires 2048x2048. Having installed those, I recommend to go to the Panel folder and copy the "Panel.NoTransparent.cfg" to "Panel.cfg". This reduces VRAM footprint significantly by blocking TrueGlass. The price tag is that there cannot be raindrops on the windows. Milviz also offers a hotfix with two files, (shader hsl and panel light texture). Go and overwrite the existing files with these.

VRAM usage is still high. I saw up to 5.2 out of 7.1, but I could fly it in Oculus VR with enhanced atmospherics out of Orbx EGHI. It has a wonderful cockpit in VR!

Have fun,

Michael

I’d really love to get this for P3Dv5, but the heavy vram footprint worries me. I have no problems with PMDG and fslabs, but they have been beautifully optimized. 

My PC handles P3Dv5 super smooth and solid at 30 fps on 4K (no fps limiter, but RTSS) and I usually start out with 3.9 - 4.1 of 7.1 vram at add-on airports with the above mentioned commercial airliners. What could I expect with this beauty?

Cheers, and thanks in advance,

Pete

Unfortunately the Vram problem will remain an issue until Truelight and/or Trueglass is updated to resolve this issue. Last I saw on the TFDI forum was they were aware of the problem and are working with LM to resolve it. That was about a month ago now. As for usage, I am at 5.1GB minimum most of the time. If you fly into dense areas you could get close to 7GB. 7.1 is the limit on my card and I usually have to scale things back drastically if I fly in an urban area. Performance remains good, but VRAM is a separate matter.

This Vram issue is all on LM...

Dear Milviz,

as much as I love your airplanes, especially your King Air: This sounds too simplistic. I have the PMDG 747-400 and 737NGXU, FSL A320, Majestic Dash-8 and Aerosoft CRJ Pro. Only the TFDi 717 allocates as much VRAM as the King Air does. There must be something specific on your side

Seems it’s going to stay in the hanger then, when the FSL and PMDG run so well to blame LM for the terrible VRAM footprint is.....well disappointing to say the least.

If you disable Trueglass and RealLight, the VRAM usage becomes manageable.  This is possible to do but, you'd lose the rain among other things.

FYI: LM made some big changes to the way VRAM is allocated.  This brought the usage perilously close to OOM realm for products that have multiple lighting systems internal to the aircraft as well as icing systems.  We can, and likely will, disable some of these in order to keep out of OOM's... but, the real issue is on LM... they are aware of this and we are hoping for a fix.  Soon.

I installed the new version in P3D V5 and although the VRAM usage was high (around 6.1) the performance was very good and very smooth. When I removed the FPS limit I was getting around 80 FPS. Will try some more demanding areas today. Thanks Milviz, this looks good.
