  1. Problem solved. After much experimentation I found OrbX Global Base pack was causing the problem. I uninstalled and re installed it and problem fixed.
  2. Hello, We all know the days of having complete control over the scenery.cfg file ended with FSX. With some sceneries entered with a different method they are greyed out in the scenery library and can't be moved. Even OrbX Central doesn't seem to do what it is told. Just wondering if there are any rules regarding scenery installation into P3D v4.5. Are there rules regarding how many drives can be used? Are there any rules regarding what can be installed onto the same drive as P3D or the same drive as Windows? My scenery order is out of control and I thought I knew what I was doing!!!! Regards, Steve.
  3. The version is The latest I believe. I downloaded it fresh before the install. I was not aware of the problem before mass installing of sceneries. It may have existed.
  4. After further experimentation I have found that P3Dv4.5 will load every time when the location is any 3rd party scenery but when the location is part of the default scenery, the loading hangs when the autogen starts loading. Has Orbx done something to the default autogen? I have no other theories. Does anybody else? Regards, Stephen Shallcross.
  5. Hello All. I have just completed a fresh install of P3D v4.5 and all the addons. However when I load the program just using the default location, loading stalls at 69% at the "loading auto-generated scenery..." stage. It has not just slowed down - it stays at 69% for as long as I wish to wait. So far all other locations seem to load fine. Does anybody know what could be causing this?
  6. … and no they are not wind farms. No blades.
  7. Hello All, When flying at altitude in P3DV4 I get numerous vertical thin lines showing. They look like aerials or masts except they are too numerous at times and are present in the desert and out of the ocean. I have screenshots but don't seem to be able to attach them. Does anyone else have this problem? Regards, Stephen Shallcross.
  8. Hello All, Finally about to replace my GTX1070 with an ASUS 2080 Super or ASUS 2080Ti. Can anyone tell me if the extra 3 Gig of video RAM in the 2080Ti is of any use in P3D4. My preference is for the 2080 Super given that all suppliers seem to have put the price of the Ti up significantly overnight. (From 1900 Australian dollars up to around 2400). Not sure if the latest batch are different in some way but this is a big increase. This increase is also evident on Ebay. Does anyone know of the reason for this increase? (and no I am not talking about the 2080 Matrix which is pushing double the price). Regards, Steve.
  9. Hello Hardware Gurus, I have an i9900 overclocked to 5.0. Although it has 8 cores, when I check the performance, it monitors what it calls 16 "logical" processors. When running P3D4.5 the first of these "logical processors is nearly always at 100% whereas all the others, whist obviously doing some work are spiking up and down consistently between 30% and 50%. The overall (I am guessing this is an average) CPU reading is at around 65%. Does the first logical processor at 100% mean I have a bottleneck or should I be going by the overall reading of 65% and believing the system is cruising? Regards, Steve.
  10. Hello All, As a relative newcomer to the world of overclocking, I worry that the increase in temperatures caused by my overclocking my be hazardous to the health of my system. My i9 9900 is at 5.0 and running at around 50C spiking at 60C. My ASUS Z390-F motherboard is only at 40-50C but my ASUS GTX1070 (overclocked to around 1890 is running at around 60C, spiking to 70C sending the fans into a frenzy. Are these temps OK? Steve.
  11. Another novice question if I may. You suggested a monitor that is capable of 30Hz. What are the benefits of 30Hz over 60Hz? Steve.
  12. Hello Again, As a relative novice when it comes to monitoring hardware performance, which software are you using to find out the figures for the CPU and GPU usage? Steve.
