  1. What do you mean, is it better than X-Plane 11 default airport or worse?

  5. I mistaken QW757 with QW787. I appologize for that. I managed QW787 to work after installing DDU then install the beta version of AMD drivers. However the black screen come back when the HDR is unchecked. However, I have a new CTD issue related to FSDT Addon Manager according to Event Viewer. Please take a look.

  6. Hi there, After 3 days of tuning, it's exhausting but finally I'm able to find the culprit of black death screen to P3D V5 If you have entered a black screen (but with engine sounds audible and menu clickable after loading a scenario), your shader and cfg files are corrupted by one of your add-ons. If you have Add-on manger installed. Please take a look at this thread, it's recommended to follow the instructions provided in this thread. http://www.fsdreamteam.com/forum/index.php?topic=15721.0 Since QW787 is titled inside the Add-on manger, I tried this workaround first. To solve this problem (Will deactivate all of your add-ons so it requires a re-installation). 1. Run "Delete Generated Files" inside the Prepar3D v5 directory as administrator (Debugging steps suggested by LM). 2. Empty the "Prepar3D v5 Files" and "Prepar3D v5 Add-ons" folders. 3. Repair your Client and Content installation (right click the msi). 4. Run Prepar3D.exe to let the program build the shader and config files. 5. You will see the black screen is gone. 6. Re-install your add-ons one by one, after a single installation run P3D to check if the issue appears again. Now, after repeating these steps several times. I found ASP3D or QW787 is causing the issue. Since ASP3D is in open beta and no support is provided. I will report this issue to their forum. I didn't find a valid solution to solve the issue permanently. The only way to avoid the issue is do not install these two plugins together. I will upload a video to show this later. Hope this thread help people encountering the same issue as I did. Cheers, G
  7. Hi there, I saw there is a thread discussing this issue with a NVIDIA card, I check that thread and many suggestions provided are NVIDIA based. I wonder if any AMD user is also suffering from this issue because I am. I'm not able to load into the sim. You can see there is a glitch at a first look, nothing is showing in the aircraft profile. This issue on an AMD card is even more severe than a NVIDIA. When the error dialog appears. It disabled the HDMI inputs so your screen will go death black then showing "HDMI NO SIGNAL". There is no way to get the monitor working again except rebooting the PC. My Specs, i5-8600, AMD RX580 8GB Radeon Driver & Software: 20.2.2 Recommended by AMD Windows 10 Home 1909 Prepar3D v5 with hotfix 1 I'm neither overclocking my CPU nor GPU. I use MSI Afterburner and RTSS for information overlay and limit frame rate at 30 fps. Does anyone experience the same issue on the AMD card and please tell me if you have a workaround for this. If you have the same issue we can also discuss it in this thread. Any suggestion is appreciated. Cheers, g
  8. Is the VRAM issue related to reallight and Trueglass? Could somebody please confirm if this is the case?
  9. A debate come from die hard X-Plane fan*boys and hype train parties is not going anywhere. On second thought. OH MAN did I waste the time again?
  10. https://www.facebook.com/rotor.ukraine/videos/199061094569577/ MSFS looks MUCH closer to reality in my opinion.
  11. After reading the statement I am hyped for this! At first, I thought it's just a visual enhancement or typical eye candy. However, they have said they also simulated the icing model with respect to airframe performance degradation, now that's the REAL THING!
  12. Okay, after reading few posts I think we might have a misunderstanding here. I see people blame REX for not drawing the cloud types other than cumulus and cirrus. This is NOT correct. SF3D did have some new cloud types that other texture add-ons are incapable to model in the sim. Because it requires specific weather conditions to see. Under severe thunderstorm conditions where the supercell is formed. The altitude at its top is about 70,000 ft. This screenshot is taken at 70,000 ft. As you can see from the picture, the supercell tower is certainly drawn in the sim. https://imgur.com/OQzvJRv https://imgur.com/B5pbbUU I don't know how to re-create a scenario that other cloud types can be seen. This is why I'm asking REX to make a demonstration. When flying through the clouds, it doesn't really have the "3D" feels, in my scenario, it seems that I am flying through layers of clouds, and it really kills the immersion. Here are the screenshots I have taken during the test. https://i.imgur.com/3ihyVAQ.jpg https://i.imgur.com/AKz47Kz.jpg The key is, SF3D lacks proper weather simulation, which their IWX engine should have the capability as advertised. Yes, it can generate nice-looking supercell tower, but it doesn't have the capability to do the proper weather simulation of it. You don't really feel the danger of flying through these weather conditions. It's just the eye candy. At the same time, when I choose to use ASP4 with SF3D, there are new issues. ASP4 as a weather engine is utilizing the clouds from SF3D, with SF3D enabled (IWX weather engine disabled) in the background. It doesn't seem to work well with the SF3D's real-time sync mode because ASP4 is generating clouds at the same time, it really sacrifices the performance and the weather simulation of ASP4 feels odd as well, not to mention the strange combined looking. You see here SF3D is definitely compatible with ASP4, they can be run at the same time and work together, but it doesn't work well. I know I can not criticise REX developers for this reason because they don't really have a chance to make SF3D integrate with ASP4 perfectly. The development of two products is totally independent. Therefore I can only hope for the best that SF3D's IWX weather engine delivers. The major critics that SF3D has received (in my opinion) is related to its weather engine. If I use nice words to describe it, it still has a large potential for further development. Not to put too fine a point on it, it doesn't have fundamental features to be called as a "weather engine". They use fancy words in the advertisement, such as "we are able to interpret the energy of the atmosphere by using key model components to determine its volatility down to a single latitude and longitude." which indicates they are using a totally different approach to bring the flight sim weather simulation to a higher level. I have never seen any existing weather product is capable of interpreting the energy of the atmosphere, and this is just exciting. However, the questions to be asked after the purchase is: "What is the theory or the background of its weather simulation", "What is the limitation of the software?", "What about sudden weather change and re-draw of clouds?" REX doesn't give us sufficient information in the reality. To be honest, the main reason that I purchased SF3D at an instant was I really believe this brings revolutionary changes and overcomes the sim barrier. Unfortunately, it all comes to a frustration at the end. It doesn't live up to all anticipation and advertisement it has.
  13. Just installed and all setup. https://imgur.com/7mZe8JF https://imgur.com/i2cxwKI https://imgur.com/Y7gs0tU https://imgur.com/iEvyQDq https://imgur.com/UMOdJlE https://imgur.com/eXU14RQ https://imgur.com/xzPBtIT https://imgur.com/zIJssfg Well, prior to the release I said in REX forum that this will be a revolutionary product. I really expect it delivers much more. But the truth is, the product is not even an eligible add-on in aspects of weather simulation. First of all, the weather engine doesn't have some fundamental features, such as weather updating period, all I know is the weather updates every 10 min approximately, and it injects the textures into the sim. There are neither smooth wind transitions nor smooth weather transition as everything just suddenly changed and I have to say, the redrawing of the cloud is awful and ruined my first impression of SF3D. I have set the turbulence rendering to maximum but I did not feel it. Texture-wise, I have not seen any 3D cloud model, there are still flat stratus clouds to be seen in the distance. Perhaps REX could make a video for us to demonstrate the type of clouds that is 3D-simulated? Performance-wise, everything was good at the beginning. But it gets horrible at the time when the weather is updating. I also get severe stutters constantly when flying through the clouds. The frame drops from 50 to 20, I never have this experience with ASCA+ASP4. I have not seen the "AI-Controlling" feature in the program, it was introduced on the website. But there is no setting nor description in the manual. I guess you might need specific weather condition to make it show up? My experience at the end is, this product is a failure compared to its elaborate advertising. I'm sorry Reed, but SF3D doesn't come to be an adequate "total atmosphere immersion" product as said on its website and sadly it does not come to a satisfactory end for me. I wish you have success in the following "Force" product line. But that won't be a first-time purchase of my choice anymore.
  14. Before this thread gets closed. I would share something about my understanding. After reading the manual, if I understand this right. For users want to use SF3D with ASP4 (without using the weather engine of SF3D). It works similar to the previous product line method, "the theme picking" method. You install the textures models, themes into the sim, then close the SF3D and open the ASP4 to use its weather engine. At this time ASP4 will utilize the textures REX has installed into the sim, and ASP4 will only interact with the sim, there is neither communication nor interaction occurred between SF3D and ASP4. This is pretty much how we are using REX OD(REX4 TD) + ASP4 now. So it is absolutely compatible with other weather addons. Because they don't conflict with each other, SF3D is only served as a textures replacement addon. REX SF3D >>>(INSTALL TEXTURES/MODELS TO)>>>Prepar3D<<<(USE TEXTURES/MODELS OF SF3D)<<<HiFi's Active Sky. (Please correct me if I am wrong Reed.) I think the weather simulation is the selling point of SF3D. Because it's an integrated system that designed to work with 3D models of SF3D. Therefore if you want to use SF3D with the best experience from the perceptive of its design. You have to use the integrated weather engines come with SF3D. Furthermore, I think it's unfair that people are asking SF3D to work with ASP4 without compromising any of its features. Please remember REX and HiFi are different companies, the developers of REX can only recommend the users to use REX products as a whole because they know the best of their products, these guys do not develop Active Sky. The manual clearly states which feature requires the weather engine of SF3D enabled and it was written into a table format. It's the user's responsibilities to check it out. To clear the confusion, I would like to say that the above content of my post is just a speculation, it does not have any correlation with the instruction to use REX SF3D.
