  1. Hi, really hope you and your families are keeping safe and well.I need some help or advice if possible.I have a gaming laptop which I have the Geforce GTX 980M dedicated to P3D & the onboard to run as default on anything else.I do not run any other graphics on it.However, the program only recognizes 3.4GB of the 4096MB dedicated memory.The 980M also has available 8GB of shared memory, I have 16GB of RAM in total which about 6gb is used. I am using Win 10 1909.Is there any way I can get P3D to increase the cache of memory as it is leading to OOM's if I run the Sim at anything other than default settings. It seems such a shame that I cannot use the shared memory to its full potential.Has anyone got any suggestions as to how I can achieve this.Many thanks and stay safe.Chris.
  2. Sounds really interesting stuff. Will have to break into my coffers to buy me thinks.
  3. Yes, Santa Barb is included. Santa Barbara Airport Stockholm Arlanda San Diego Airport Dubrovnik MBS International Airport Idaho Falls Regional Airport Glacier Park International Airport
  4. Would think they will update all eventually.
  5. The following airports now have Sode available: Stockholm Arlanda San Diego Airport Dubrovnik MBS International Airport Idaho Falls Regional Airport Glacier Park International Airport Good news.
  6. When I fly I have FSmovmap2 on my tablet, you get Satelite, Map or Terrain options, it also shows AI traffic, you can click on a plane and it will tell you the info. It will load your flight plan and waypoints and follow your flight. Really recommend it. At the airport, you can zoom in and see the airport positions and gate numbers, taxiways etc. as they appear in real life. As it is on my tablet and you just use a bridge from your PC, there is no noticeable drop in performance. You can download it from the playstore, not sure if available on IOS.
  7. From Justflight. I am looking at this, anyone use it and recommend it to me. and is it worth the bucks.
  8. I use IDM and pdf's I download using IE, anything I download from Chrome auto uses IDM. So download PDF using IE or right click and choose IDM from the menu if you want to use it.
  9. Have you set the Vsync tear behavior to ''Adaptive''?. Try rolling back your driver, I find I cant use any Nvidia driver over 400, there is a program you can download that will completely remove your existing driver ( you will need to google it as cant remember exactly what it is called). I also use windows Shut up to limit any back ground processes. In V4.4 do not use Vsync or FPS limiter, but I still set the Vsync behavior to Adaptive in NVI and ignore changing the refresh rate, 1/2 refresh will not work in a window program and even in full screen P3D is a window program. It works for me, but with everything P3D it may not for you.
  10. I have used AM 253 recently with a good result, was using Lasso but have found with 4.4 no need for it. I cannot turn off HT as I use a gaming laptop. I leave FPS at UL and set NVI to adaptive screen tear, max power, single display and HQ, I leave Vsync and TB off in the sim as well.. With FFTF dynamic set to 8K height and 0.001- 0.40 at 22-60FPS, I am getting FPS in sim between 24-40+ in cabin (pmdg 737) and anything up to 78 FPS externally, I also use Shut Up to kill any windows processes. I have DL off and shadows also off, scenery max draw and tess max, use a couple of tweaks to the CFG per Rob's suggestions, mainly the 320000.000000 to the autogen request distance and the 64,000 Scenery and autogen draw distance, the other is the memory optimizer to 0. (cant remember the exact wordings as on my work PC). Flu for 6 hours with 3 different legs, starting Gatwick to Stockholm, stockholm to Copenhagen, Copenhagen to Bonn, Bonn to Bergamo. All scenery looked superb and didnt experience any blurriness or significant stutters I used Toposims Europe mesh and the Alps were amazing, Orbx LC etc.. AS, Envtex, Enshade and chaseplane, PMDG 737 800 in Norway livery, connected to Acars and using FSmovemap connected to android tablet. I have to say after years of frustration, my P3D is just brilliant. It isnt possible to max out with my spec, but have accepted that and with what i saw yesterday couldnt be happier.
  11. You will also need a good weather program, I use Active Sky from HIFI and Toga's Envshade for textures and shaders, Orbx scenery is a must, word of caution with Vector though, try adding the features one by one and see what hit they have on your performance, to higher settings will hit your performance hard. Freemesh if you want to improve the mesh is good, but if you want to fork out a bit of dosh, Tomosims meshes are great. I am sure you will be more than happy with the result your get.
  12. Downloaded Toposom Europe Region and was blown away. Also didnt get the BOGOF offer, submitted a support query on their forum and Justin already responded and is going to add the free scenery to my account. Great product and with support like that you cannot go wrong. I found extracting the 4 areas into a folder and adding the scenery using Lorby's Addon Manager, moved the scenery to above Orlando and added to my Europe group worked perfectly with Orbx LC etc. Looking forward to adding the USA region ASAP.
  13. Hi Vic, So am I right in thinking you place the Toposim Mesh above the default ''Base'' scenery, but below Orbx Base and LC regions.
