    Are FSX and P3D becoming step children?

    No, as JV already mentioned, ORBX have taken on additional people to work on these ports, as well as future ones such as Washington, etc..

    Are FSX and P3D becoming step children?

    I just hope that TrueEarth GB Central for P3D v4 has not been forgotten about. I understand that ORBx has a lot on its plate at the moment, but now that I have seen how much better southern England and Wales looks when compared to my existing UK photographic scenery, it is somewhat frustrating to have to wait for an extended period of time before I am able to enjoy the next volume in the TrueEarth GB series (particularly when the base photoscenery images have already been obtained).

    As far as I understand, you can use the pimax with one base station as long as you set Channel a in pi tools

    OZx Libraries

    Thanks. I have downloaded it twice from two different sites. I use FSX...this isn't the issue. The package contains the executable file. OZx_COMPLETE/OZx_LIB_v1.2/OZx_Lib_v1.2.exe. This only installs v1.2 of the object libraries. V1.0 and v1.1 are missing from the package.

    FlyTampa VHHX

    Hi......Does anyone know what are the gate assignments, ramp to what airlines for VHHX. The latest afcad is sorely needing improvement....Martin at FlyTampa says he has no issues with someone updating and sharing the afcads. https://imgur.com/wHaSc1J Thank you, Bestes, BobM.

    Hi John, With so many buttons available you really should look at programming buttons specifically for thr PMDG737. You will need a registered version of FSUIPC5. Have a look at this post. It's what I used to program buttons / switches with multiple actions using FSUIPC and the PMDG SDK. Explained very well and a godsend. https://forum.simflight.com/topic/85925-how-to-program-joystick-buttons-and-keys-to-control-pmdg-aircraft/

    Great FPS - P3DV4.5 with many Photo Scenery enabled!

    Indeed, the problem isn't specifically related to OrbX, it's just that OrbX sceneries typically use a LOT of scenery objects, which exacerbates the problem. Other scenery products and probably even default scenery are affected by the bug which was introduced in P3D 4.5. Either way, a fix is on the way, so for now just stick with 4.4. If you've upgraded to 4.5 and don't want to downgrade, you'll have to live with using lower settings for the next few weeks.

    Water textures

    Yes, but even FSX had better water rendering in most cases. At least programs like REX could make wonders by replacing water textures etc, which is certainly not the case anymore in P3D.

    Are FSX and P3D becoming step children?

    That's one thing. Another is that as someone who has tried TE GB for both platforms, I can clearly see why developers would prefer to work with XP. There are things which simply cannot be done efficiently with P3D, mainly to do with vector roads and autogen. P3D's vector roads have always been an ugly mess with no ability to create intersections, overpasses, interchanges, etc. (other than placing custom objects which then do not align smoothly with the adjoining roads). Building autogen is also very limited, making it impossible to create things such as UK-style terraced houses (or, as noted by TE NL users, anything resembling Rijtjeshuizen), or anything other than simple square/rectangular buildings, for that matter. As a result, a huge amount of custom objects have to be created, with takes a lot of work and causes issues with loading times and performance. And as far as performance goes, on my modest system (including a hold-me-over GTX 1060), I get perfectly acceptable frame rates in XP and a stuttery mess in P3D v4.4/4.5 in the same areas of TE GB at comparable settings. Now don't get me wrong, I still use P3D as my main sim and I'm well aware of XP's limitations (to me, the awful weather representation and lack of proper AI/ATC are the most important ones), but the point is that Orbx is a scenery developer/publisher rather than a "complete flightsim experience" provider. So, if one platform gives them much more freedom to realize their vision (and makes it easier to do that), I can understand why they are shifting their focus. Not that I particularly like it as I'm inclined to keep "flying" mainly in P3D in the foreseeable future, but I do see their point. Just my $0.02... 😉 Tym

    Keyboard Commands not working

    I discovered that if I remove the version FSUIPC5.151 then the shorts cuts work again! There is no log file being generated in the modules folder, so I am unable to post it here. Paul DLL.XML file can be viewed here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/i4q9y5u5hq502s3/DLL.XML?dl=0

    Water textures

    Share your opinion. Been having the same problems with water since I switched over to P3D from FSX several years ago (P3D v1.3). Default water textures look far superior than any texture replacement program I've tried in my opinion. I have even contacted REX about this issue, but didn't receive much response at all.

    Are FSX and P3D becoming step children?

    Well, OpenLC Africa and Australia v2 are also being worked on, so it's not that P3D development has stopped in favour of X-Plane, it's simply that they have a bigger team working on different sim products simultaneously. I doubt such products will be seen on X-Plane for some time (if ever), so it's all tit-for-tat. All the recent airports except my own Barton are ports of products that are already on P3D. Yes there is a lot of excitement and noise over TrueEarth Washington (and I'm very happy about it 🙂), but it doesn't mean the teams that were already there working on P3D products have stopped.. Nothing has changed in that regard

    OZx Libraries

    The 5GB 3.5 version listed at the FlighSim.com file library says their's is for FSX. Might be worth downloading the whole thing again from there. gb.

    Water textures

    My P3D water at altitude has improved since I installed REX4 Texture Direct with Soft Clouds Enhanced Edition. The texture still looks static beyond a certain distance, but it is an improvement over default, and also has better colouration.

    Are FSX and P3D becoming step children?

    You do realise that the lead developer for the TrueEarth product range (Tony Wroblewski) is an XPlane man, and therefore presumably created the tools and libraries for that particular platform? That being the case, why would Xplane not be the lead platform for the TrueEarth series?

    cannot select procedure in GNS 530

    thank you once again for your precise support. i have been checking my way of working with the GNS. sometimes i am able to select whatever i want and then from a different place i am not. as i write this and work with the GNS everything i do is working fine except for one select of VECTORS for Maitland RNAV which blurred out. i retried the procedure and it was selected okay. so i will hold on the tech support until i have a more consistent errors. as far as Little Navmap goes, it uses a Navigraph database and is the best moving map i have seen. the Mindstar GNS does not like working with it but that is okay. one cannot be greedy in one's GPS usage. thanks again Ed, i will let you know if i get consistent errors with the GNS. joe
  27. You need to be more detailed with your computer specs. Being from 2006, FSX doesn't make much use of graphic cards. It is very processor dependent. People have their opinions, but from my experience, at least 3.5 GHz CPU frequency is ideal. Windows 10 is NOT the bottleneck. I find this guide very useful. Check it out and dial back some settings. One of my favorite settings to turn down is AI traffic, especially airport vehicles. https://www.avsim.com/files/file/41-avsim-basic-fsx-configuration-guide/
