  1. For me P3D is still what I use 95% of the time. MSFS is nice but the updates are frustrating as they appear on my Store account weeks after the release, in the case of the last update. Plus, the aircraft quality is still early in the stages.
  2. If you push 5 on the numeric keypad does it start going straight again? 5 is to center the rudder and ailerons.
  3. For some good SA freeware scenery go here. https://3dmodelbrasil.com/2018/09/13/brasil/ They have other countries too. Warning this is one of those sites that will annoy you with a few ads etc. before you download your scenery. Pay attention to what download button you hit. They are very good sceneries though.
  4. OMG, thank you so much for posting this. I've been going crazy for three days now and missed a weekend of MSFS. It's working again.
  5. I have P3D on an SSD but my scenery on an HDD just because I don't have a big enough SSD to hold my photo scenery. I have one area of photo on the SSD. I have to say that the initial loading of P3D to the gate is faster when using the SSD photo scenery but it doesn't feel any faster once I've started flying. No difference in smoothness.
  6. I disagree with this part but agree on the rest of your statement. I had reduced the number of traffic bgl's by over half at one point and noticed a definite decrease in load time. After that I started moving bgl's in and out of my traffic folder depending on where in the world I was flying.
  7. I have used both AIG and UT2 over the last year. What I found is that both are good. UT2 is slightly better on the framerates. It also loads faster. What I found with AIG was not a knock against the software, it was that it creates a single BGL for each airline. Over time I accumulated 100's of BGL's and it was taking an extra 3+ minutes to load P3D. Managing the BGL files was not so easy as you have t move them in and out of the folder depending on where you fly in the world. I fly all over the world so it was becoming too much of a chore. That said, UT2 is frustrating as they don't have all the repaints that you will get with AIG and merging freeware one's with UT2 to get them to work is really hit or miss (70/30). Currently, I'm using UT2 and find it overall more pleasing. Using a combination of both is something I'm contemplating.
  8. I have it working fine in P3Dv5. I have working. Is that what you meant? In the Configuration tab under flt sim I have airline density at 80% and gen av at 10%. In the traffic section see if you have the target frame rate section set to a high number. I set mine at 20fps. In the installs section ensure you have the main directory and cfg pointing to the correct places. If you can find the traffic file UT Live creates it should be a large file over 30mb's. See if yours is allot smaller. Perhaps the traffic didn't get compiled. Just a few ideas.
  9. I was able to add the bgl types to the newer v5 without any problems and slowly switch over. I recompiled what I could using ADE as well. I don't know about the xml one's though.
  10. Do you have ASCA installed? I'm just wondering if it fixes the default textures or it fixes the ASCA textures, or both if you have it.
  11. You and I have almost the exact same hardware. The only difference is I have the Nvidia 1660 which has 6gb ram. I suspect that is the difference. I've had this happen to me before and I had to drop some of the settings to keep the vram usage under 4.5gb. Push ctrl-z in the sim and you can see this. Start with the default aircraft and see what your vran usage is. Then load in the A320 and see how much it jumps. I suggest lowering your texture size to 2048 or 1024 and reduce the antialiasing to a 4x if you're at 8x.
  12. Hey thanks Bert! Don't know if it helped Josephpilot but it helped me.
  13. I'd like to see someone do CYSN - St.Catherine's/Niagara. It's a growing airport.
  14. I grew up on the east coast of Canada and had some interesting flights. My dad's C172 DC-3 (Eastern Provincial Airlines) - one flight was with an engine that kept sounding like it was going to die but never did. Fairchild 227 - (Quebecair) - This is the Fokker F27 made in the USA by Fairchild. B737-100 (EPA) - they flew in some of the harshest weather and a song was written that Santa followed EPA on Xmas eve B737-200 (Quebecair) Bac 1-11 (Quebecair) - soooo noisy DC-9 (Air Canada) B767-200 (Air Canada)
  15. So, one thing I've been doing is taking FSX and P3D v4 scenery and recompiling them with ADE and the SDK for P3Dv5. I do this by opening the BGL in ADE and select Taxi Links from the Lists menu, click on Reset all Draw Flags, and then compile. Most of the time it works. I'd say 70/30 and it seems if the author used default objects you have better success.
