  1. Ever since v4 everytime there is a new release I completely uninstall the current version and do a clean install of the new one. Never had any issues of any importance. Same procedure with v5.2 and have GSX, the PMDG aircraft, and using the same scenery bar one that worked in v5.1. Much better VRAM than in 5.1 and very stable. Have noticed that many people having issues with the sim never seem to publish their full system specs, if they did we would be able to find out wether their kit is fit for purpose. So do publish them and users will be more willing to give advice or help. One size doesn't fit all in this hobby anymore.
  2. Thanks rmeier for pointing me to the cerro file, it has fixed the problem. The funny thing is that in 5.1+HF it was working fine and when I added the scenery to 5.2 it didn't appear correctly and not just the Cerro. However the Cerro file has also removed all the default scenery items that were also appearing over the scenery. Best regards
  3. After working perfectly in v5.1 + HF it is now again a bit of a mess. The hill with the radar is high above the default hanging in mid air. Default buildings are coming through on parts of the scenery. This happens even after excluding all default scenery using Airport Design Editor and applying the available iniBuilds file for this airport. If anyone has managed to fix it in this new version of P3D some advice really appreciated.
  4. I am absolutely in agreement with the originator of this post as regards stability even though I do not use EA or HDR because the latter makes my VC too dark. Have done a couple of flights and performance is great. Had only one crash and that was caused by ChasePlane which has never failed me, perhaps the developer may have to check that it is fully compatible with this version of the sim. Happy days are here again.
  5. Good day After a clean install of version 5.2 I did a 3.5 hour long flight and just before landing the Sim Crashed. Below the event viewer logs.

  6. All events are published by Vatsim. If you join you can then access myVatsim where daily and future events are published.
  7. Well looking at the specs in your system I'm surprised you can get MSFS2020 running smoothly. I will not discuss the pros and cons of MSFS2020 so may I suggest to you that you do the same in this forum?
  8. Thank you very much for your replies. Sorry for the delay, been away for the weekend. Will buy it based on your helpful feedback.
  9. Tempted to buy it but not sure if it will work on v5.1. Feedback much appreciated.
  10. Bought and installed the Premium Deluxe version and cannot really express how disappointed I was. The actual intefaces are terrible and the setting up of peripherals and cameras is extremely complicated and confusing. Add to this that whenever I tried to fly any of the planes, had all kinds of stability issues and the annoying downward pointing arrow was a real pain in the behind, don't get me started on how complicated and confused the menus and the terminology used in most them is. Trying to set my cameras was a nightmare also and the interfaces for exiting or changing something were less than user friendly. I got the impression that this MSFS2020 has been designed to work in Xbox as a game rather than a simulator, for those people who just want to enjoy all the eye candy and don't care much about stable aircraft systems, etc. Then there is the issue of having to download/stream large amounts of data to get that lovely eye candy. If you also want good performance on a PC be prepared to expend quite a bit of money running into close to £3000 and that's without buying the new peripherals that they recommend that will also add additional hundreds of Pounds Sterling to your total cost. As regards the comment that MSFS2020 is catching up, that is far from true for they haven't even finished and SDK after nearly a year of release and cannot see that happening for perhaps 6 months or more. Needless to say that I agree with the poster on this subject and have myself removed it from my PC until or if ever MSFS2020 becomes a viable choice. Those developers that abandoned P3D and are issuing all these airports for this sim are obviously taking advantage of this new game to make money but very much doubt that their sales are sky rocketing seeing that quite a few of those airports are already being discounted by some vendors, not a good sign for them. This is my honest opinion.
  11. Yes they do occur if the system is not suited to take full advantage of this new version of Prepard3D. I haven't had any VRAM OOMs at all.
  12. Thank you for your reply Zicheng
  13. Would like to buy ZBAA scenery but so far have found only two versions, one is A-A Sceneries and the other WF Scenery Studio. However none appear to be v5 compatible. Would be interested in knowing if anyone has tried either version in v5 and if still compatible. Feedback appreciated.
  14. You need to install either the Free Mesh, the Pilot's or FSGenesis for the area. It is a mesh issue and nothing to do with Vector or anything else.
  15. I don't have any issues and have same scenery as you, what mesh are you using?
  16. If you search in the scenery folder for OBX29370.bgl and rename it to OBX29370.bgl.off the default v5 buildings will disappear and the freeware scenery should show. Doing this is quick but bear in mind it may affect other objects included in the bgl. I have done this a few times at other airports and frankly worked perfectly and didn't notice any changes.
  17. I experienced this on friday while landing at KDEN runray 35L, taxiing at LPPT and while taxiing on E at BIKF. Perhaps we should contact the developers. Agree still unresolved.
  18. Thanks for your reply with the information as regards issues, will buy it and see if I can fix the misalignment although not certain if it will with ADE. If successful will post the result. Best regards
  19. Just wondering if anyone has this FSX scenery and if it works on P3DV5. Thanks
  20. Not a problem Francis, let us know when you finish optimising the scenery. Best regards.
  21. I have the most expensive version of MSFS and have noticed that most releases are now for this sim, however if you go to the MSFS forum there are huge numbers of bugs and problems, not to mention the lack of any decent Jets like PMDG and Airbus, the setting up of peripherals and the mess they created with their overblown settings menus with terminologies that hardly any serious simmer understands. If you fly GA great if not P3D is still the sim to go to. Many of us have accumulated a huge number of airports and aircrafts and with many good quality photoreal sceneries and at high altitude sometimes it is difficult to tell the difference. Large parts of MSFS world have terrible photoreal textures and will need to be updated to achieve the eye candy they promised around the world. Let's not mention the majority of buildings are nothing more than grey blocks. I haven't spent any money on any airports released so far for without decent Jets I have no use for this sim which hasn't even got a proper SDK and is totally unfinished. Believe it or not some developers still issue scenery for P3D, not many of course because P3D is pretty well covered by what has been released. Also huge scenery releases don't necessarily mean huge sales. I fly on Vatsim and keep hearing pilots on MSFS2020 having issues with navdata, pilot clients, etc. May be in 2022 they will complete the SDK and iron out the multiple issues affecting the sim, then developers like PMDG, FSLabs, etc will be able to release their products. Until then I remain on P3D and will continue using it while it still develops, for who knows what is yet to come from them.
  22. Good day Benjamin My monitor runs @30Mhz with fixed frames rates at 30. However my Card is only 8GB and in order to avoid possible VRAM limit use 2048 textures as default and to be honest don't notice much difference from 4096. See screenshots below: https://flic.kr/p/2kvcJ3C https://flic.kr/p/2kvcdZ1 Regards
  23. Below screenshots that show the scenery in P3Dv5.1+H consumes high GPU memory and an additional chunk of my 8MB GPU memory. Also screenshot in the same parking spot without the scenery. https://flic.kr/p/2kuLUZo https://flic.kr/p/2kuQAiR Will drop a line to the developer to see if he can improve the scenery to reduce GPU usage.
  24. Got Santo Domingo yesterday and did a flight SBEG-MDSD. The airport is definitely an improvement from anything previous, and is nicely done considering the low price. Later after restating the PC decided to depart from the same airport for another flight and got the "Run out of memory" message, however this didn't happen after landing during the previous flight and before placing the blame on the scenery I will investigate further and will let you know the results after further testing later today. The developer states in the pdf "My P3Dv5 dilemma. I’m not promoting this airport to be utilized in P3D-V5 because I myself have been having technical issues operating this airport with the P3D-v5. At the moment, I can only encourage users to operate it in P3D-V4.5. If you like,go ahead and utilize it in P3D-V5."
  25. If you have a file named AICM-FLATTENCERRO.bgl you do not have the latest version of the installer, because no longer exists in the scenery. MMMX works in v5.1+H for me without any changes.Must also let you know what I have installed as default.: FS Global Ultimate - NG 2020 FTX , Orbx FTX, Vector and all Landclasses to-date. You should have 3 folders: MMX-Terrain, MMMX-City and MMMX. Answered a similar question on previous couple of posts with screenshot. https://www.avsim.com/forums/topic/593323-mmmx-for-p3d5/?tab=comments#comment-4449967
