    ORBX EU Netherlands TrueEarth released

    I also have 4790K, but if TrueEarth performance really drops, I may wait a bit until it has been optimized. I have no FPS problems with HD textures from Ortho4XP and lots of autogen. Even in crowed aera (e.g. London) fps are > 30 fps.

    ORBX EU Netherlands TrueEarth released

    I think it was a good decision made by Orbx to put the price tag not too high for the P3D platform. Otherwise people won't buy it. In Xplane, which I consider to be a serious alternative sim platform, for instance you get all the photo sceneries including mesh plus OSM overlays plus VFR landmarks for free and they also look asthonishing. It is just not so easy to generate high quality photo sceneries in P3D and therefore the price tag is justified.

    You won‘t. Even a HDD is fast enough for photo textures. Nowadays you can get 4TB HDDs for reasonable prices. Excellent for storage of photo sceneries.

    Farewell FSW

    That's true. A combination of the best features of P3D (e.g. weather and seasons) with X-plane (e.g. , flight modelling, lights) would be a most satisfying simulator...

    ntdll.dll ERROR CTD - sick of it

    An unstable overclock or hyperthreading ON in Bios can also cause the ntdll.dll error. For the beginning I would delete the Shaders and prepar3d.cfg. Sometimes this helps to eliminate the error.

    P3D V4.2 CTD when raining

    According to my understanding, any change in precipitation intensity within the sim will cause a CTD. Does this mean that if ASP4 changes the intensity, the sim will crash regardless whether "detailed precipitation" is ticked or unticked? I am asking because yesterday I could reproduce CTDs during rain in LJLJ and they disappeared when I loaded the scenario without rain. I did not know that there is a bug in P3D until I saw this thread.

    ORBX Photoreal UK/IRELAND This year.

    What is the fifth season?? Summer, autumn, winter, spring,...?

    A320 completely stops

    The . key is normally assigned to the parking brake. That's indeed strange. In my case it was more that already around 10-20% deflection of the pedal brakes in the VC stopped the aircraft immediately during taxi. My brake pedals are in synchronisation with the brake pedals as seen in the VC, and well calibrated. Anyway, it is normal that if you slam the brakes, the aircraft will not move. This is what you do at short runways: slam the pedal brakes and apply power, then initiate the takeoff role by releasing the brakes. It is just strange in your case that you have to push the .key. (which by default is the parking brake) to release the normal brakes... Do you use any ground friction lua scripts ?

    A320 completely stops

    The FSlabs bus is extremley sensitive when it comes to rudder pedal brakes. A small tip with the toes brings the aircraft to an halt. I have discussed this issue since the first release, but there is no fix or anything. You may only try to calibrate using FSUIPC sensitivity curves or change the brake sensitivity in the aircraft.cfg.

    Restarting P3Dv4 from last position.

    Why do you not just save the flight and then load it when you restart the sim?

    P3Dv4 or P3Dv4.2

    4.2. It has many bug fixes and improvements.

    upgrading from 4.1 to 4.2

    In theory only the Client. However, in the past there was once a problem that menu functions of addons (e.g GSX, ATC) or effects did not work properly as they required the Content update as well. That said, I would update Client AND Content to be up to date and then update the addons you have. It will not take that long. Addon Scenery and aircrafts will not be affected by the Client and Content update. If for any reason 4.2 does not work for you, you can go back to 4.1, but I doubt you will... 😏

    Must have add-ons?

    my must have (without aircrafts or scenery, as this will depend) FSUIPC - controllers EZDOK - cameras TrackIR - head movement PFPX - flight planing Multi Crew Experience - speech recognition Lord of the landing - landing parameters (touch down rate etc) HIFI ASP4 and ASCA - weather and cloud textures ENVSHADE and ENVTEX - Shaders mod and environment textures Precipit - precipitation effects AI lights Reborn - improves AI lights REX - textures FTX Global Base - ground textures, autogen and night lights FTX OpenLC - Landclasses ... The list is longer than I thought... Cheers, Chris

    Not able to access ATC in P3Dv4.2

    Some newer addons will REQUIRE 4.2 to work. If all your addons are updated, there is no reason not to update to be honest. Most of the issues are solved by updating the addons.

    New SODE update 1.6.2 (eliminating stutter)

    Would be great if DD and Jeffrey (SODE) work together to solve the issue. It might be the sdx files which are compiled from xml files that makes the problem. This format is choosen by developers that want to hide information how they built and placed objects. DD seems to be one of the few developers (if not only one) that uses this format.
