    P3D running but CPU not running at max speed

    @SteveW should now be picking up a retainer from FSL for resolving chunks of their support issues ;)

    @SteveW lots of people getting it now, your advice proved invaluable to me also, forever respect O guru and master of AM's :p Or more simply, thanks mate!

    No offence taken Ray, we're all on your side here. I'm glad you've picked up the challenge of doing the overclocking, it's not hard and you'll be happy with the results I'm sure 🙂 Just remember to call Chillblast and get a partial refund for the hassle they've put you to when they sold you a non overclocked system as overclocked. By error or design, that's very naughty of them and no doubt you'll find a decent addon to invest their part refund in 😛 Keep happy, K

    Nope it’s still open I just posted - they moved the topic out separately. I get most of their customers will be happy with either 1 season lod15 or full seasons lod14, but JV is anything but thick, I think he’d market a full seasonal lod15 if he thought he could monetise the marginal development cost sufficiently

    Would you pay extra to get seasons though Chris?

    Hyperthreading off works great!

    The implication was that Steve's wisdom may not be related directly to the current version, and it was a good point well raised, in the context of his lack of public comment....just wanted to clarify :) You are right that 4.4 acts slightly differently to 4.3 in some aspects. [I think I pointed that out somewhat earlier in the thread? (or it may have been another one entirely!) Doesnt matter... ]

    My recent posts have been based on personal conversations post 4.4 and so are very applicable.. just because it's not been said publicly doesnt mean its not true :)

    A professional dev very experienced in the intricacies of flight sim software architecture, with proven test data backing up his advice...v why wouldnt it? You'll need to do better than that Luke sorry, I have never done blind faith, especially in MS! I'll go with the expert and test data until there's something that convinces me otherwise 😛

    ah yea it is, in 4.3 it relates to landclass only sorry

    The only other PR scenery for the UK in development that I am aware of is from JustFlight, and the publically available info about that indicates it carries much of the same limitations.

    £30 for 1/3rd of the uk isnt bad for full 3d autogen and colour corrected base imagery. Yes Id pay more for an even more full feature set. There will be an upper price where JV knows from market data that his customers wont go.. he's simply adjusting the feature set to match the pricepoint he thinks he can sell product at volume. Maybe he's right? I dont know, I do know Earth Sims tried to do it to the extreme (within the capabilities of FSX) 4 years ago and failed to monetise it....
