  1. Ok, thanks for the reply. I will check that link out. The folder currently lives where the installer put it. I haven't had time to fly around to see if the landmarks are working or not.
  2. Thanks, I've managed to get them working. Only thing I've noticed is in UK central there is an additional scenery folder that when opened up contains agn files, I can't add this folder, not sure what it is or what they do, could be something to do with Snowdon demo.
  3. Ok, thanks Stu, I will give that a go.
  4. I tried to get my horizon genx scenery that was installed in P3D V3.4 into V4, I tried manually adding them in the P3D scenery add on page, but it often said a scenery of this name was already installed, as a lot of scenery folders have the same name for the different regions, so that didn't work. I then tried Lorby but that kept telling me their were no scenery files in the folders I was selecting, even though their was. I have since un installed all of my P3D v3.4 and sceneries, & then tried to install horizon gen x, it came back after installing the first area telling me I would need to add the scenery manually as it wasn't able to change the scenery cfg. Back to square one and still not installed. I'm at a loss as what to do.

    Orbx True Earth for P3Dv4

    No I don't have that much ssd space but I do on hdd. SSD is getting cheaper all the time, I currently have 2 x 250 and 1 x 500 samsung pro drives a 500 velociraptor and a 2 tb hdd. I spent last night deleting all my P3D V3.4 installs so now I have loads of space to build on my V4 install.

    Orbx True Earth for P3Dv4

    I used horizon gen x + treescapes and uk2000 airfields, then I added just flights revolution x which adds trees, bushes and buildings, it really is quite effective but in P3D V3.4 I very quickly get to oom. I need to now un install all my V3.4 install for space and re install all into my V4 install. Only thing that will be more difficult to do will be all my earth simulations packages, not so sure how to do them. That said I will still get the orbx true earth UK packages as they come out as they do look great, it will be interesting to see how they run on my machine as it struggles with Netherlands a bit.

    Orbx True Earth for P3Dv4

    John at Orbx confirmed to me we won't be getting seasonal textures in true earth UK. Shame.

    REX Sky Force - Cloud Model Sync Explanation

    Yes I agree, I don't blindly buy products from every producer, I support the ones I know to be good, A2A, PMDG, Majestic and Just flight fill my hanger. I wouldn't know they were good without reviews and forums expressing opinions. I do believe in evaluating a product, it just frustrates me when people bicker about something they haven't tried.

    REX Sky Force - Cloud Model Sync Explanation

    Well I've been simming for many years now and have purchased every weather engine and every cloud texture program going. I do this solely to try it, give it a go. Some I like some I don't. It is without doubt active sky is the best weather engine and for me I've really enjoyed Rex soft cloud textures. I have bought every Rex texture product released and have admired the way they have often given us free upgrades. There is obviously some disappointment that the new product isn't what some thought it would be, I am yet to install it as I've been ill all week, but I have purchased it. I think about the sad loss of earth simulations who made photo sceneries with hand placed autogen because not enough simmers bothered to purchase it, why wouldn't a flight simmer want real scenery below them with all the buildings, bridges and trees etc properly placed to match real world. How unhappy do we get when we lose good add on developers, just think before you slam someone down. I am still looking forward to trying skyforce 3d.

    Corrupt cockpit view on opening screen

    Hi all, After further testing it happens on all aircraft on initial loading, if I change aircraft after loading it corrects itself. If I change from full screen to windowed it goes offset again, changing aircraft corrects it again. Closing P3D down I can see it is doing something odd with the screen resolution. I'm wondering if it is something to do with Nvidia DSR factors.

    Corrupt cockpit view on opening screen

    Seems to be just the default aircraft that have the cockpit view problem.

    Corrupt cockpit view on opening screen

    Hi, no I don't have ezdock or chase plane. I have a totally vanilla P3D V4 install at the moment, least until I sort the stutters , & now the weird cockpit view.
  13. Hi all, I have a really goodV3.4 install but my V4 is stuttery so I have tended to not bother with it. Every now and again I see something to help with the stutters so I give it a try. After loading up the default F22 at the default airport my view is not central in the cockpit but is also looking off to the left & zoomed in. I tried rebuilding the cfg, changing screen resolutions, & changing from wide screen view on & off. Nothing so far has put the view right. Any ideas anyone please ?

    Got stutters with V4? Try this -

    Ok, I will have a go with the recommendation. I don't hold out much hope as it was stuttery with no add ons. I tried the same settings as V3.4 + lowering and raising the settings. Nothing got rid of the stutters. Oddly both Nvidia control panel and I Spector only show 1 P3D exe, being black icon for V4. Even if I manually add V3.4 icon when I go back the blue V3.4 icon has gone. V3.4 runs nicely V4.1 doesn't even though the cpu core utilisation is really good.

    Hi, I have a 3700k @ 4.5 GHz, 16 gig 2133 MHz ram, 3 Samsung SSD, 250 gig for op system & scenery 500 gig for P3D, EVGA classified 780 gpu. I get the same stutter with totally default everything & with add ons. It has done it from the first install.
