  1. Same with me. I tried almost all of the options you mentioned, but none would really fit. I hope FSCaptain for X-Plane is still under development as Travis suggested in December 2017: http://fscaptain.proboards.com/post/21931/
  2. I can't say if they run better or worse than their FSX/P3D counterparts, but I don't have any performance issues with the Carenado planes I fly in XP11. I have the XP-11 versions of the PC-12, B200, Do228 and CT210M. Otoh, I don't care about the frame rates I get as long as they stay at or above 30. I also don't use any addon airports or heavy addon overlay scenery. So it might be that one or all of them have an fps impact of 10, 20, 30 or even more compared to other addons I use, I just wouldn't notice (or care 😊).
  3. Just uninstall and get 1.06 from here: http://xenviro.net/update.php
  4. http://www.alpilotx.net/2018/06/15/alpilotx-net-saying-goodbye-to-active-development-and-the-community/ I'll keep it short: Thank you so much for all your hard work that made X-Plane better, and helped it quite a bit from being an underdog to becoming a well respected sim!
  5. Technically, yes, you can have and fly as many sims as you want. But maintaining a sim takes time. keeping the sim itself up to date (unless it's FSX😊) keeping add-ons up to date installing new addons gathering info about new releases, updates, bugs etc. the list goes on... All this takes more than enough time for one sim, and I definitely don't want to do that for two or more. I usually don't have more that two hours per week to spare for flightsimming, and sometimes a good portion of that get's used for something from the above list. Sure, you could fly at least "the other sim" with everything out of the box or with an absolute minimum of add-ons. But where's the fun in that? 😊

  7. No idea, I never used FlyWithLua or any scripts for that reason.
  8. Adjustable contrast and sharpening shaders would be awesome! I'll keep watching this topic for sure.
  9. Thanks for working this out! Is there a way to add sharpening to the PP pipeline with this technique, or do I have to stay with Reshade for that purpose? I only need Reshade for contrast boost and sharpening, and it would be nice to have one thing less running with X-Plane.
  10. I agree that 11.20 is a good performer, but on my end, XP11 is still not performing significantly better than 10.51 (or especially 10.36 which gave the best and most stable fps for me) with the same scenery, aircraft and comparable settings. But of course that's highly individual and only applicable to my system, settings etc. And we need to account for the extras like PBR and reflections which put more load on the system. So it's not really possible to compare 10 and 11 under identical marginal conditions.

    KIDA Idaho Falls

    Or for a nice GA or short airliner flight you can go to/from MisterX6/Short Final's KSLC.
  12. X-Plane 11 default FMC/GPS still read .fms files. However, the FF 777 FMC can only read .flp plans in the Aerosoft Airbus X Extended format. I don't know if Pilot2ATC is able to export this format, but it should. The plan needs to go into the \plugins\T7Avionics\routes subfolder of the 777.

    Moving the installation folder

    For convenience, you should also change the installation path in the x-plane_install_11.txt file. It can be found in C:\Users\YourUsername\Appdata\Local

    X-plane 11 frame rates

    If you set vsync within the driver to "adaptive", it will automatically disable vsync if you drop below the intended value (at least that's how I understand the option). However, I'd rather lower all eye candy options before allowing the sim to go below 30 fps.

    X-plane 11 frame rates

    I use vsync locked at 1/2 refresh rate through the nvidia options. This locks my frame rate to 30 (on a 60hz monitor). As I don't care about VR or TrackIR, I hardly see any advantages of going above 30fps and this option leads to very smooth visuals on my system.
