    Environment Force Discussion Thread

    After finishing a compleat new install last night I just did a take off in the default Maule to have a quick look. What I noticed that I've not seen before, the sun was lowish in the sky in front of me and all the broke clouds in front of me were dark! I took off and did a 180 turn and wow! now I was looking at the clouds facing the sun, they were bright white with the glow of the sun. Looked amazing. A year on PTA and a few months on TS, not seen lighting like that before. It seems a scene is not going to give you that photoshop contrast/saturated looks that can and does look amazing. But instead, gives a more subtle feel not trying to blow you away kind of feel. Basically more real lifelike. All with no profiles or tweaking. This time I've not even changed one thing in EF, not one within mini UI. The main menu you have to set up, but that's a one-off thing. Am sure HiFi might bring something new out this year, a new PTA all gives us choices to suit our own needs. The other thing I noticed last night with no TS was how amazing the PMDG-8 looked like with low sunlight on it, it really was a WOW and even the old PMDG NG had really nice reflections, no idea but it did not look that good in 4.4 with or without TS. It's nice to start completely afresh even if its a pain to do. But if it lasts me till v5 its worth it.

    Time to load Prepar3D v4

    It used to be a hallmark of the Dublin scenery that we are both so fond of. I haven't checked since 4.5 update.

    xEnviro 1.10 in Beta

    There will be performance hit. From what i saw and what they tell in the video too, they reduced cloud details a bit to keep performance up. This is something normal for such technology tho, if you check other sims using such tech you will see that the clouds look more or less similar in definition: Il2 Sturmovik, TrueSky, Outerra etc etc

    Taxi2gate VHHH for p3dv4

    Yes, that should work for you.

    xEnviro 1.10 in Beta

    It does look terrific. Just waiting on some feedback on performance. If its reasonably I am buying definitely. Even some performance hit is acceptable considering default clouds do the same
  9. Possibly me too. Depends if it's the full product or early access. There is a long list of disappointments with early access in flightsim, some or which are still in early access years later.

  12. Hi there i have mixed feelings now about the download of this so called Free Mesh X... First of all i don't understand or know how to download with bit torrent and no one explain how to do it properly... Secondly there is an option and links to download from mediafire directly and i try that option, the first time i try download the first file for Africa and it downloaded the full 4.3 GB but the file doesn't open at all... so i try this morning again to download the same file again and it downloaded the full file but AGAIN it does not open at all i do have a program that open 7z files so i don't understand this...!? So the short of all of this is that i effectively waste almost 10GB of data that cost me easily about R700,00 since a use a wifi router to go on internet with a monthly subscription fee I could have bought me payware mesh or a very nice airport add-on Yours sincerely Marius

    PMDG747-8 TAKE OFF

    I stand corrected, so thanks for that! In that case, may I suggest you think twice about signing your posts in these pmdg user-to-user support forums with a PMDG Boeing 777 Pilot logo in future? Avsim users might be innocently led into believing you are connected in some way to PMDG and have their express permission to use it here.

    Voice Control & Button Control

    Good Morning Yesterday I purchased 2 x FS2Crew products of which one is the T7. I would just like to clarify something please? When using the V/Control I assume that one (Me = PF) use the headset with a microphone and then give FS2C voice commands and then FS2C will IE "set" the landing gear down. With button control I lost the plot, and last night after 4 hours & 3 YT videos I know nothing more today than what I knew 2 days ago. Can someone please help with this BC function. BTW I have read the manual and in my opinion everything i see is just about voice control. Hope to be able to get a flight in tonight 🙂 Regards and have a nice day! Ricardo Sc
  16. Hi Everyone, Sorry if this was asked before, but I'm still new to X-Plane, moving from almost 3 years in P3D. If I want to deactivate orthos in flight, for example if I'm flying from day to night and want to see the full city lights as I land, can I just disable them in the .ini and refresh the scenery in X-plane? I'm wondering if it's possible to avoid a full restart. Thanks, John
  17. Thanks to Mr. Nick Cooper over on the OrbX forums, I found what I was looking for. The files in question are; 2315_WTR_Waterbodies.bgl 2315_EXX_Excludes.bgl 2316_WTR_Waterbodies.bgl 2316_EXX_Excludes.bgl In case someone should ever have the same issue and stumble on this. Thanks for all your replies.

    4.5 CTD's

    Hi Jim Many thanks for your reply. I was in no way criticising the ctd guide which has obviously helped a great number of people sorting out their problems and is a great resource very painstakingly put together. I have checked memory modules using memtest86 which showed no errors and I have removed the cpu overclock even though it passed every test I threw at it. But before I try the nuclear option I’ll try removing P3d again and be more conscientious in removing all traces of the core program and add ons. Having currently a reasonably modest computer I have been fairly selective in what add ons I install and currently only use the Aerosoft Airbus, Radar contact, chaseplane, gsx (l2), AIG oci AI and about 4 add on airports. Again, many thanks for taking the time to reply, off to the golf course now so I’ll get back to the computer this evening 🙂 Kind regards G

    Advice on improving perf

    Yes, somiller is right. A performance degradation is caused by using not very efficient AI liveries. Also not completely correct installed liveries (missing parts, double keys and so on) can cause problems with performance. In P3D there is a tool to find these wrong liveries, see the FAQ, don't know if FSX has that too. Try FLAi first I'd say to see if you notice a difference. And indeed, set your traffic slider to 0% as indicated in the PSXT Manual. @TravelRunner404 39-40 fps is not a very bad score at all in my opinion, for where you were with that Traffic...
  20. This will not work as with each extra view you will loose 40% fps.. You need at least 2 view pc,s..
  21. 2x 2080Ti in Non SLI mode The Titan only has more memory , but 2x 2080Ti have way more power together . P3D has issues with SLI not coming out of Idle mode after cruising ...

    Invalid Models

    No. There are errors in the FLAi package but PSXT only uses the liveries that are ok. However it cannot be that FLAi has only two valid models? Anyway just try PSXT out of the box without using AILG first.

    4.5 hot fix is out

    I thought I read about people having issues. I'll be honest in saying that I might be getting v4.5 and EF mixed up. So the fix is good and folks are happy?

    Environment Force Discussion Thread

    Brightness etc because of weather conditions, clouds , sunstrenghth is already changing by default in P3D. PTA is able to add expressions so it will change even more according to weather , time of day , shadows and altitude ... PTA/TS using expressions will change Shaders according to conditions that exist in P3D. So if any weather program injects weather the conditions are automatically changed inside the Shaders. So Dynamic changes in your P3D Environment . No magic and it is there for more than 2 years.... Just re-read this thread as it has been discussed several times already ...

    Time to load Prepar3D v4

    Thanks for your comment. This issue is also happen without UTLive installed. Of course there are other traffic.bgl not releated to UTLive. Anyway and anyhow I my case this is not a very big disadvantage if the P3D after loading works well. I would not be happy not to have AI traffic on the large airports. Roger
