  1. I did end up picking up the 1080ti oc, I will post my findings here in the future after I do a reinstall.
  2. Thank you both for your input and your time. I wouldn't mind the sim running smoother and it's been awhile since I upgraded my PC. I figure this video card will last me a long time so I figured may as well just spend the extra for 1080ti. I was just worried I'd get barely any jump because of the dependency of the CPU but it looks as though that isn't true. I'll be running it at 30hz so I figure I can turn up the settings in P3D V4 that use the video card to make things look better. If I can average 25 to 30 fps with my CPU and eye candy settings up I would be happy. I just need to google what settings in P3D strictly use CPU and what settings strictly use GPU power. I assume your from Vancouver area Dave? Richmond here :D
  3. I currenty own a TCL 4K 43 inch TV. It runs 30hz and 60hz in all resolutions. So do you just set your monitor to 30hz in windows? Do you set your frames to 30, or 31 or unlimited in P3DV4?
  4. My setup: i5 2500K at 4.6GHZ 16GB Ram 970 GTX 4K TV that can run at 60hz and 30hz at all resolutions. Prepar3d V4 I'm just wondering if it's worth it for me to go to a ROG Strix 1080ti, if it would help me a lot. I do have a PSVR as well that I wouldn't mind messing around with as well (I know it probably won't be good). I know this simulator is more CPU oriented but wondering if I can turn up a few more things by just running the 1080ti
  5. Ultimate traffic live

    I have no addon traffic solution for P3D V4 yet and in no way am I rushed to buy one. I will see what the next update to UT live has, and if it's worth it I'll pick it up at that time.
  6. Weather Engine for P3D v4

    I used to use OPUS for p3d v3. Then they wanted a new price for p3d v4, at that point I went to Active Sky. Couldn't be happier.
  7. So I have a really smart geeky programmer buddy. He has taken a look at this, but it's low on his priority. He has looked at the code and has put hours into it. Not saying he's going to finish or continue it but it has been looked at.
  8. Another Affinity Mask question

    I've been trying to take the approach with P3D V4 as less tweaks are better. With V3 I was trying every tweak I read on here, but with V4 I just install and enjoy. I've had no performance issues whatsoever with this sim. ORBX Vector, GSX, AS16, ORBX Global, Orbx PNW, and NA landclass and fspilots next generation mesh, GTN 650/750 complete, PTA2.5.2 and chaseplane. I locked it to 30fps and it doesn't dip or stutter at all on my old 2500k
  9. V4 on its own ssd

    I always keep it on its own SSD off of my system drive. A 1TB SSD drive I would die for. I use a 256gb for OS drive and 256gb for P3D. Personally I'd just rather have it separated. Maybe pickup a small SSD for OS?
  10. FlyInside P3D v4 update

    Does the Vive work with P3D? Huge price drop on the vive today. In the states it was lowered by $200 and is available now for $599. In Canada it was $1200 and now it dropped $400 to $799
  11. Help Please with Pilots Mesh Installation P3D

    One of your files may be corrupt. You will have to figure out which one it is and re-download it. When it's extracting does it say what file it's on?
  12. I purchased FS Global Next Generation download version this weekend, installed it and it looks great. I don't regret the decision. I set my mesh to 1m and I believe I read somewhere to put the tessellation up as well. I don't have that maxed though. I don't regret the purchase at all.
  13. Do lots of people still require a kneeboard? Just out of interest I'm wondering if this would be a popular addition or would just a few dozen people use it in the community?
  14. Stutters make V3 and V4 not usable

    Do you have every option checked off in FTX Vector? You mention you have all FTX Global addons so I assume Vector is installed. Try disabling all the secondary options, golf courses, trains, etc etc. You may find even if you uncheck all the options you will see it will run perfect. Just to try as a test to see if it's the culprit.
  15. I installed the new vector through FTX Central. All options are checked on in the config tool, but I'm experiencing micro stutters in flight with 60+ fps. I will uncheck a lot of the secondary roads and golf courses etc. It is slightly annoying that's for sure. I also set pre rendered frames = 1 in the Nvidia Control Panel but that didn't help at all.
