  1. I would seriously consider P3D, v4 over FSX. I flew FSX for many many years and made the switch ... you will never regret it. Building an expensive computer for FSX just doesn't make sense to me.
  2. Now with the release of Orbx Vector and Active Sky for V4, all I will need is the Flight1 GTN750, and I will be a totally 100% happy camper in V4 land. Has anyone heard and discussion on this?

    P3D V4/Carenado/Alabeo/FSS??

    This is a total unnecessary pain on the part of FSS. Very unprofessional.

    P3D V4/Carenado/Alabeo/FSS??

    This is very frustrating. Two days ago, I downloaded the PA31 Navajo from FSS. It has a transparent panel. I sure wish they would get their act together.
  5. I did a search of the forums, and came up with two changes recommended: TEXTURE_SIZE_EXP=9 and LOD_RADIUS=14.5 These may be totally wrong, but at least I am going to try them out.
  6. I have tried googling to see what prepar3d.cfg changes apply to version 4. So far I haven’t found anything? I remember seeing somewhere in a thread on this forum which talked about this. P3D published changes applicable to version 3. Do these changes apply to v4? Are there any other changes which apply to V4?

    Question about P3D V4 and video cards.

    Super. Thanks for the quick replies. Any recommendations of one brand over another?
  8. I am trying to decide in buying a GTX 1080 (8GB) or a GTX 1080 Ti (11GB) video card. Since I don't plan on using a 4K TV, my question is: will the extra 3GB of the GTX 1080 Ti video card benefit performance with P3D V4? If so, it is a no-brainer to spend the extra money on the Ti board. Thank You.

    Ending support for older simulator versions?

    Opps. A Big typo on my part. I meant to say that this is not "just" your opinion. I agree with you 100%. I have to be more careful and proofread my stuff before hitting the send button.

    This is just not your opinion. And I think it is a good thing.

    FlightBeam Studios - KMSP Looks Awesome!

    Now bring on KPDX.
  12. Two and a half years ago, I purchased a GTX 970. I also purchased an 4770K cpu. If I were upgrade the 970 to a 1080 Ti, would how unevenly would these be matched. I will be soon getting P3D v4.
