  1. Even though P3D is multi threaded it's using at most 4-6 threads - with the main thread core usually at 100%. That being said the more cores you have the lower your amalgamated core usage % will drop because the other cores are not being used that much and they are figured into that overall CPU usage.
  2. Do you have the newest version V2? It's like a 1.2GB file: https://www.flightsimnorway.com/addons/default.php?key=ZVJPZk56M1R1cjg3bXc4MWl2Y2NkYXpkRDI4ZnlwZ3EvTlRpRXIrU2xDRT0= Sounds like you may not have them installed properly or maybe try you could try the .xml addon method for them. (Instructions are in the included PDF file) Edit: you can paste this to an add-on.xml file so you don't have to try typing it per the.PDF <SimBase.Document Type="AddOnXml" version="4,0" id="add-on"> <AddOn.Name>Global AI Ship Traffic V2</AddOn.Name> <AddOn.Description>Global AI Shipping by Henrik Nielsen</AddOn.Description> <AddOn.Component> <Category>SimObjects</Category> <Path>SimObjects\Boats</Path> </AddOn.Component> <AddOn.Component> <Category>SimObjects</Category> <Path>SimObjects\Animals</Path> </AddOn.Component> <AddOn.Component> <Category>Scenery</Category> <Path>Scenery\World\Scenery</Path> <Name>Global AI shipping traffic</Name> </AddOn.Component> <AddOn.Component> <Category>Effects</Category> <Path>\Effects</Path> </AddOn.Component> <AddOn.Component> <Category>Sound</Category> <Path>Sound</Path> </AddOn.Component> </SimBase.Document>
  3. I'm pretty sure that the system memory is only acting as a buffer in this case, unless you have the 8GB 980M chip you will still be limited to 4 GB video memory with some being reserved for Windows ( thus only showing 3.4 GB available) I think the "shared memory" is probably restricted to the Intel® HD Graphics 4600 built into your processor, not the graphics card. Edit: Nvidia did have a 980M with 8GB, so you may find a used one out there... up your system memory to the max 32GB would also help if you're not looking to replace the laptop yet.
  4. The scenery author needs to put that info in the AFCAD I believe. Either contact the developer or get an afcad editing program and put in the correct info.
  5. I haven't seen anything regarding the 2020 update and Vram usage, can you elaborate?
  6. Hard to judge a product release when they are 10+ years apart with 10 years of inflation unless you just look at how many they sold and compare that way. PMDG has substantially increased the price of their addons over the course of this time?
  7. If you have hibernation enabled you could just hibernate your PC or put it to sleep and the settings and programs that you had will be intact when the PC is turned back on. Not ideal I know but it will work.
  8. If the main program thread is maxed out it can look like low GPU usage because the GPU is waiting on the CPU. Usually you will see your core 0 at 100% and the others a lot lower. Remember your CPU usage statistic is a combination of all cores averaged out. You can see how this works by using default P3D settings and observe your CPU GPU usage, then start cranking up all the sliders and at a point your GPU usage will actually drop off.
  9. Anyone tried dropping their refresh to 50 Hz(european). Would of course have a system that can maintain it but 50 is easier to attain than 60....
  10. We had a similar issue for a few people during testing for the MV KA350i with the screen flashing etc, disabling that also corrects that problem.
  11. Because you loose pixels for the window border width? 4 pixels each side.
  12. I think this is a Windows problem not a P3D problem. I've seen it in beta testing. Has to do with a update to Windows10.. Try this: Right click p3d icon, go to properties, check the box for "disable full screen optimisations" See if it gives the same effect as unchecking that box in P3D.
  13. Expect a bit better performance than 4k because of less pixels to push.
  14. Ive got 2 of the EVO. Samsung is known for their speed and reliability. All of my sims run on them no probs or stutters from loading.
  15. Didn't see which sims your using but 64GB is recomended in Xplane if you use UHD mesh. Im wishing I had bought 64GB now...it will eat 32GB easy.
