  1. I guess DJJose may be right. This plus the amount of autogen, namely buildings. The Bay Area and the region south of Monterrey down to the Mexican boarder especially give me headaches, due to the dense populating.
  2. Is it really the OrbX 'enhanced' airports, which cause these loading pauses? I think these are rather basic, with good looking but simple models, they should load fast. Puh, this is stuff to be discussed in a separate topic, I realize...
  3. Thank you Vic. I do the same actually. I enable or disable scenery grouped by continents. But it does not help with flying over OrbX California terrain. The long loading pauses are still present. Maybe I misinterpreted what you meant with 'long pauses'. Regards Frank
  4. I did just the client install due to time constraints and the experience is very pleasant already. But I see the long pauses especially over OrbX NorCal / SoCal. What do you mean with adjusting scenery loading, if you don't mind? Regards Frank
  5. Hi, What do you mean with 'deactivate'? The licenses? I think this should not be necessary; but it will not be wrong as a safety measure. Usually, if license providers link their licenses to hardware then it would be against the MoBo because swapping a hard drive is not such an uncommon thing. Best Regards Frank
  6. Hi, What's wrong with copying the data over from the old drive to the new drive? You can do it with the Explorer after you installed the new drive in your computer. Best Regards Frank
  7. Hello Dave, You may want to check the SMART status of your HDD. CrystalDiskInfo is a nice tool you can use to do so. Here is an article describing how to use it: If the disk report would be fine you could investigate your HDD with another nice tool called TreeSize: (both tools are freeware for private use) TreeSize will show you the occupancy of your HDD; which is very helpful if you want to get an idea where all your precious space went. Best Regards Frank

    A320 Family - Aerosoft or FSLabs ?

    Ask yourself, how much time per day / week do you spend in front of the simulator? Will you be able to enjoy the additional detail FSL has put into their Airbus? If you say: Then you mostly answered your post's topic question already. I suggest saving the money and getting a couple of nice scenery upgrades instead. Cheers Frank
  9. True. No only the software devs need time to develop. The HW manufacturers need time to develop new chipsets and motherboards too, to enable feeding the memory sizes of these new graphics cards fast enough. But fortunately this leaves us time to save money for the day until adequate combinations of GPU/CPU/Mem and mainboards will be available. Cheers Frank
  10. Hm, hold yer horses Gentlemen. The release of these monsters does not mean that we will see immediate visual effects on our current flightsim or gaming applications (apart from the pure frame rate increase). First the devs need to include the new functions into their code, which will take a while. My guess is, that in flight simulations we will see it in 12 months earliest ... Your guess...? Cheers Frank

    Captain Sim 757 RR Released

    My guess is that there will not be a CS 757 sale until a competitor (maybe QW) have released their version of a 757. I just purchased the upgrade for the A31x/A32x bundle from AS - and look what value you can get for your money there. I was looking forward to get the new 757 from CS - but not at this price. It's simply not reasonable IMO. Regards Frank
  12. Absolutely worth every penny. An excellent deal! Cheers Frank

    Upgrading from W7 to W10.

    Hi Dmitriy, Yes, it will if you are running current and of-the-shelf hardware. If you would happen to have any very specific adapter card in your PC (I don't know, let's say a TV card or a special RAID controller card, for instance) then it would be a good idea to check upfront if vendor drivers exist and if they are compatible with Win 10. When I did my first "migration" to Windows 10 I did it like FunknNasty said - I got a new SSD, put it into my PC and let Windows 10 do a fresh install. I would not recommend an installation over Windows 7. Too many downstream issues may result from improperly migrated settings. Best Regards Frank

    P3Dv4.2 loads on START

    I found two articles on the internet dealing with this question: Needless to say that personally, I am not very amused by MS' ongoing attitude to decide what's best for us and what not ... 😉 Cheers Frank
