  1. Someone else having or had the issue with DD Leipzig that the ground textures of the surrounding airport are not loading or loading very slow. Rest of the world and airports are fine also the scenery itself is good. So no problems with the terminal or the apron. Its only the surrounding. Its green (as on the photo) and then it instantly appears as normal and that continues till you have passed the whole airport. You can see the area not covered by the scenery is sharp and good but the airport is not while the ground layout is fine.
  2. I thinking about throttle to better use on my airplanes. Using the build in throttle in my old Saitek Joystick is not that good for planes without auto throttle. Sadly the Honeycomb is a bit too big, their Tango Foxtrott is not processing and no news on it (llok on the FSElite link). So I watched some videos and tests on the Thrustmaster Airbus set. I fly Airbus but also 777 and had the Majestic Dash in use. Is it possible to use it with the non airbus style aircrafts? If I saw it right the detents are possible to disable and so use it with other aircraft. But the flaps are not for that? So would it make sense to buy only the throttle and not the other pack? I'm currently having flaps on my Saitek and it works well. Would appreciate any feedback :)
  3. After some further testing it seems the main problem is caused by the option "amortize clouds" which is marked as experimental. To be hones I don't know really what it does but after unchecking it it was mainly sovled. Some small things are left but thats all. I think the rest is like @blaunarwal said with panning and my older screen which will be replaced. But with the EA on and so and all settings on a higher level I still find the clouds looking quite like toys or like drawn. Not as good as they could be. Also I have the problem with ActiveSky that the weather is for example bad on departure, then on FL200 it changes to sunny and 50nm later suddenly to cloudy. And when looking behind me all is sunny and not like real life. Is there a way to change that somewhere? So it is more real? I have resources left when looking on my frames if that is relevant.
  4. Thanks Dan for that hint. Now I firted the sim up and got on my testposition like on the last shot. But this time it was okay without a change. I then tested some other sun positions but still nothing. I mean that is maybe a good thing, Then I wanted to test frames with the PMDG 777ER and the cam for taxi. Loaded and chosen the cam, frames dropped around 7-9fps. Still 35fps. But I noticed the following as on the picutre, Only when in VC. Outside was all fine. When turning off cam it suddenly is all normal. Like using a switch. No loading screen nothing. Never had this with Nvidia before. But I have same as on the pic below when moving the camera around. Maybe its I'm using a 24" screen which is also a bit older but all new ones are having such big racks not matching my table 😕 To be honest I wanted to have a Nvidia too. I planned for a 3070 (TI) but then the price for the 6800 Red Devil came up so cheap and it has more VRAM. In all the 6800 doing good frames and in other games too.
  5. Hello, I'm quite happy with the graphics due to my new system and in some tests it runs very good with 30-50fps stable. Even with higher settings. So far so good. But I noticed some vertical lines when moving around. Sadly not able to take a screenshot. But what I also saw is some typical line flickering. I think its maybe with shadows but I tried some settings and could not find a solution. I also noticed that on a clean system only with a 777 or default. Its also not releated to the airport as it also occurs on the air. Using a AMD 6800 video card and also tried some Radeon settings without success. You can see the problem around the windows and the terminal/tower. This is annoying and destroys the good system to be honest. I do not have this on other games like MSFS or RDR2
  6. Hey guys, it seems I'm not that lucky with the new system. I got my new PC and of course installed v5. After the basic things like SODE and PMDG777+737 and FreeMeshX I now installed the first scenery for test. First it was FlyTampa Boston. Then it crashes after I select KBOS and Okay. No error in event viewer. Deleted KBOS and installed Gaya LOWW and the same problem. When starting then P3D again it shows a quick loading screen where it says generating scenery database files. Only the basic airport works set as default from P3D. It seems the selection is in general not possible. When selecting the airport ingame it also crashes. Still no event viewer error Even when using the location mover it crashes after clicking okay. EDIT: Tried a repair of P3D but no success
  7. I upgraded to v5 today after I got my complete new PC build. So I also installed the Lorby Addon Manager and on the first run I got the warning Ivalid or broken package - Visual FX Tools and Traffic Toolbox - missing addon.xml I recognized that these both tools are sitting under the Settings - Addons tab. They seems to be from Lockheed direct but never heard. Can I deactive the addons to use the addon manager without the warning? Or is there a corrupted install?
  8. After some further searching I've found a build with Alder Lake. The video card is good enough I think and a 3080 is 500-800 bucks more and don't even think of a 3090. Good the CPU is quite stable. The video and RAM are upgradable in the future if its really needed. Intel i7 12700K MSI RTX 3070 8GB Gaming Trio Gigabyte Z690 GAMING X DDR4 Scythe SCFM-2000 FUMA 2 32GB Crucial Ballistix rot DDR4-3600 2x Samsung 970 Evo via PCIe 3.0 850W Seasonic Focus GX Modular Fractal Design Case
  9. I using currently a around 8 year old PC only with some parts upgraded. The current specs are listet below. But I want a new one which can run flight sim better and with better graphic and frames. Currently at most situations I'm stable of course. But when flying with FSLabs into Amsterdam,Frankfurt etc then it gets worse. Not to mention special addons know been very frames hungry like Gaya Sim etc. I already looked at some points, currently I'm waiting for the new Alder Lake Intel CPU to be released to see prices and value. GPU will be a RTX3080 or a AMD 6800XT better? Any other ideas? RAM will be 32GB for start and later maybe more, SSD is 1TB primary for flightsim and a second one for OS+personal stuff+Lightroom+Photoshop Would look like this: https://mad-gaming.shop/konfigurierbare-pcs/361/intel-gaming-stage-5.1?dvsnConfiguratorKey=98bf48ea368005a7&number=SW10355 Current System Specs:
  10. Hey guys, after the release of the sharklets by FSL I was happy to have a EFB. But on tests it crashs or better simply closes. Sometimes it says "P3Dv4 need to close there was a problem searching for windows solution" and sometimes simply nothing. Below I copy you the crash log but I saw ucrtbase.dll and error code c0000409. I updated Visual Studio and run sfc /scannow (from a command prompt). No result. The thing is that it seems all rest is working good also the FSL normal airbus is flying and doing good and a small flight. Also PMDG and standard planes. When removing the sharklets also it works fine. So the problem is with the sharklets. I read some reports with v5 but they did not help me as I'm using v4.5. I also have not installed anything as I was longer time not home and came back after the release. So the "test" of the airbus was the first thing after some month. Crash log:
  11. I found that it seems the problem is inside %PROGRAMDATA%\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v4 . After removing this folder (as suggested in P3D guide) it worked. It seems it is the dll.xml file causing the not starting. I tested and deleted only that file at the end and then it worked. But inside there are only 4 entries by PMDG, RAAS, PMDG HUD. I checked the files linked to the entry and they all exist. Deleting RAAS PRO entry solved the problem. Don't know why, maybe its I have not an Aerosoft airbus installed nor I own the full RAAS version. Maybe its a leftover from my previous Aerosoft airbus version and as I do not fly the A330 at the moment I removed them. Let's see if I can do a flight tomorrow
  12. Not so far I can see. I'm also wondering while its in the task manager still displayed as running and active and also CPU and GPU values are changing. For me that would indicate it still works. But before that day I always had the P3D screen. Sometimes it took 10-15 to load whole P3D, okay. But now it disappears and is only able to exit via the taskmanager. I also tried reboot of my PC and deleting the shader chache and a clean and new P3D.cfg. I'm also running it as Admin just for info.
  13. I made my last flight maybe two weeks ago and today after some night shifts I thought flying again to relax and fly thorugh the fog as we have in real life too. But P3D is starting, you see for around 1min the P3D screen. Then EZCA v2 comes in and in Win10 taskbar the micro icon appears. Suddenly the P3D screen disappears and thats all. Even after 30min nothing happens. In taskmanager it says it's still running using around 25-32% CPU and 666,2MB RAM.GPU is used with 1-3%. Except RAM all values are varying a bit. I did not install something new as I wanted to fly the leg back I flew two weeks ago.
  14. Today I reinstalled the Airbus as I suggested the problem to be there. All other planes where fine so far and did not have problems even on longer tours. Done once again the same flight from Vagar to Keflavik with a fresh FSL and no liveries and extra sounds like cabin. It once again crashed this time around 15min prior approach.
  15. I made some flights today on the same route and without changing settings inside P3D. Scenery and also running tools where exactly the same. Also IVAO was used with the same software. Even weather was nearly the same with clouds layers. But this time I used instead of FS Labs the Aerosoft ones and had no problems. Also on a flight with PMDG NGXu from BIKF to BIAR no problems and no crashs or freezes. So I think the problem is for sure with FSlabs 😞 But no sure whats the problem that it causes these crashs
