  1. No question... Upgrade is a must ! A game changer for me in ref. to the terrain resolution no more loading as passing over it. Mike
  2. Aeorosoft Twin Otter Extended ? I have it, and it's one of my favorites... Mike

    First reactions to P3Dv4.4

    1. Did you deleted all the files in Shaders folder ? (C:\Users\YOURNAME\AppData\Local\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v4\Shaders 2. If you are using EZDOK: Did you forgot to run the Config tool ? Mike
  4. Great video ! Well done ! Mike
  5. How much VRAM you are running at with TEXTURE_SIZE_EXP=10 ? Mike
  6. Nope. No tweaks... Hey Rockliffe, I read your post about your P3D4.4 results, and was exited to try v4.4 because I had the same behavior in 4.3 as your (blurry PR) Edit: Only 1 tweak: [MAIN] FIBER_FRAME_TIME_FRACTION=0.1 Mike
  7. Hi all, Posted this on ORBX forum and I think it would be valuable for others here at AVSIM: I am speachless ! Upgraded from P3Dv4.3 to 4.4 (Client & Content only) and I can say my ORBX scenery never looked so good. Thanks god ! Photo Scenery Textures are now sharps and crisps around the aircraft but also in the distance and don't loads while flying over them like it was in the past. See by yourself (PAVD)! I am now a very happy flyer ! Mike

    Updated Client and Content. FPS about same as before, and wow ! now Photo Real sceneries are sharper (near and in distance) than before. Never looked that way in previous versions on my system. Great update so far. Very happy with results... Mike

    FFTF DYNAMIC P3Dv4: still worth getting ?

    I bought P3Dv4 booster live and tested it in P3D4.3 and I can tell it's works. Not huge gain, but few FPS (3-5) depending on your actual settings. You can adjust FFTF (dynamic) while flying, that's the key point. Mike
  10. Just received an email from AOA: "You can get 30% off any of the Flight Simulation Training at FlyAOAmedia.com from now until the end of Monday" Enter the code: AOA30 https://www.flyaoamedia.com/get-started-at-angle-of-attack/ Mike

    @swallsgaming I think some tasks or softwares are running in the background. Check what is starting up with Windows (Task Manager, Startup TAB). Also it's a good practice to exclude all your sims folders (and Addons) from being scanned or live protected by your antivirus software. It could slows down your PC. Mike

    Anything under unlimited or 60FPS Stutters

    Hi, You are not alone, I am experiencing the exact same behavior. The problem comes from the refresh rate of our monitor. My solution is to choose P3D settings to be able to stay above 60 FPS, Vsync and Triple Buffering enabled. Flying above big cities is not a smooth ride. Mike

    @swallsgaming Hi Matthew, Look in P3D Options Lighting and try turning OFF: HDR, Dynamic Lighting and Dynamic Reflections slider to OFF (full left) to see how it goes. Also, use casting and receiving shadows with moderation. Try enabling CAST for only Internal vehicule, External vehicule and clouds. Receive shadows = all enabled. Mike
  14. I came from a 24" 1080 to a 32" 1440 and it's a perfect fit (quality vs performance) for flight sims. If you don't want to regret your move, always rise the resolution of your screen when you are rising the size of it. Mike
