    p3d ssd drive full

    I recently upgrade from a 1tb SSD to a 1tb m.2 SSD. All I did was clone the old drive and then swap the boot priority. Don’t believe I had to re register anything but if I did I just selected yes when asked seeing it’s already embedded in registry. Also why partition a 500 mb SSD? SSD prices are cheap now it’s easier to pick up another drive than to divide a small drive.

    First reactions to P3Dv4.4

    I noticed the same thing on my system doing it the same way as you (7700K@5.1, 1080TI). System was more sluggish and FPS we’re down. I noticed longer load times when near payware airports. Did not have this problem on 4.3. I did a system restore and I’m back to smooth performance. I'm going to wait until I'm ready to do a clean OS install and than install 4.4. For now I'm happy where I'm at.
  3. I noticed I have two SceneryIndexes_x64. The second one is named SceneryIndexes_x64_P4AO. Is there a reason for having two? Reason I'm asking is sometimes we need to delete the SceneryIndexes_x64 to clean things up. I removed both earlier and found FSDT scenery didn't load until I put them back.

    4.4 performance drop puzzles

    Did you ever solve your problem?
  5. Do you include the Orbx scenery?
  6. Very Interesting. Like many others I have tons of scenery installed. I've been thinking if I should only activate the scenery that I'm flying too/from would be the way to go. I wonder if using Add-On Organizer or the UI would be the way to go. My example would be, if flying in the US, than I would disable the 3rd party scenery outside the US.
  7. As far as TEXTURE_SIZE_EXP=10 goes, it does double the size of the textures which is the reason for the slower load times. While I love the visual from it, the load time drives me crazy seeing it takes twice as long to load. If your patient and have a powerful video card than its worth using. Several months back I saw Rob A on YouTube using TEXTURE_SIZE_EXP=9 with High Resolution Textures checked. I wonder if that does anything visually?
  8. Just out of curiosity is anyone using these tweaks and seeing any difference from not applying them? It’s always been preached to not tweak the settings and if LM wanted you to make changes it would be in the UI.
  9. I tried the following settings and my terminal buildings were either missing or transparent at ImagineSim KATL and KLGA. The SCENERY_DRAW_DISTANCE=64000.000000 was causing the problem. [GRAPHICS] ENABLE_MEMORY_OPTIMIZATION=0 MAX_TEXTURE_REQUEST_DISTANCE=320000.000000 [SCENERY] SCENERY_DRAW_DISTANCE=64000.000000

    First reactions to P3Dv4.4

    Some of us never look at version updates like 4.1- 4.4 to be game changer updates like new graphics engine. They are usually bug fixes and minor new feature updates. I expect P3Dv5 or v6 to bring some new changes to the table.
  11. From past history, except for version 2.5 has LM gone past x.4 update or 2 year window before moving to the next version. 4.6/7 would add almost 2 more years on v4.
