    Holy smokes!

    I wonder if you could use Bing ZL17 orthos and get Ortho4XP to use overlay data from the Orbx package. Now that'd be nice!
  2. This is surprising to hear - have you bumped up your AA settings with the RTX card? I'd expect you to be able to do that and maintain the same FPS you had, with the 1080ti, at a lower AA setting. That'd be logical. But computers and logic don't always go hand in hand 🙂
  3. Haha - I've not got to that point yet. But I did manage to have a conversation that ended in me ordering an i9-9900K, an ASUS Maximus XI Formula and some Corsair Vengeance DDR4 4000MHz CL19 RAM. Also ordered one of the new EWKB Velocity waterblocks which has better performance over the Supremacy. Fingers crossed for a good bit of silicon to push to overclock!
  4. Hi Rob, I too was looking at the 9900K as, with some decent watercooling, it should be straight-forward enough to overclock that to ~5.2GHz without too much of an issue. If I sold my 7900X and Rampge VI Apex, I'd easily be able to recoup the cost. I don't think X299 is the best platform for simming - I actually think, despite a better overclock, my simming is worse than on X99. Maybe a proper 'gaming' setup would be better. Not sure how that conversation will go down with my wife though.... lol. But you must be an expert on those conversations, given the amount of hardware you go through! What board and RAM have you gone for? I'm looking at the MAXIMUS XI Formula, with built-in EKWB VRM block, and Corsair Vengeance RGB CL19 4000MHz RAM. Regards, Ady
  5. Rob's Titan XP is pretty much equivalent to a 1080Ti - it just an extra 1GB of RAM.
  6. To be fair, if it was that good and viable, why has it completely disappeared? The website no longer works.

    Hotfix 2 for REX Skyforce 3D available

    Hi all, I've been solely flying X-Plane for the last few months but have just started a reinstall of P3D so I can fly my favourite PMDG aircraft and also because, let's face it, X-Plane weather representation is really bad. I used to use Active Sky and ASCA but am now considering moving to Rex SkyForce. Could someone please tell me, does the Rex weather engine do smooth weather transitions now? I remember this being an issue when the product was first released but I'm hoping it's been resolved now? Thanks! Ady

    Mkjs Montego Bay rwy26 released

    Awesome! I’ve been waiting for a P3D version of this airport. 18 EUR seems a touch steep though, given it’s a small airport and this scenery doesn’t expand beyond the airport at all (except for traffic and birds apparently).

    CPU-GPU temperatures

    Never leaves 38?? Even under full load? What CPU have you got please and do you overclock it?
  10. Pressing space didn't actually work for me. I put it down to some kind of alteration that ChasePlane had made to my default camera settings?
  11. Ah that's great - exactly what they should've posted as a response to the thread here. Would've straightened things out for me no problem. Instead, I saw a bit of an odd response that was unnecessarily grumpy and didn't address the outage. I'm not following FSFX Packages on Facebook so wouldn't have seen that link if you didn't post it here.
  12. Hi Jaffer, I think there are a couple of reasons that people reacted the way they did - and I'm not making excuses for the over-exaggeration or rudeness of some people. Firstly, this isn't the first time this kind of outage has happened - people expected it to be resolved from the first time. Secondly, the developer ought to have reasonably been expected to foresee this kind of thing when he implemented the copy protection method he chose. I think people are generally fairly supportive of unforeseeable events that cause outages - but the CP outage was entirely foreseeable and preventable. Regards, Ady
  13. Me too. I get that it's frustrating for the developer but he seriously annoyed me with that response - we're not all unreasonable trolls. An explanation as to what happened, and how the issue will be prevented from happening again, is not too much to ask for.

    CP down "Connection closed"

    Seems that the developers live in Quebec where the time is 0530 on a Sunday morning. I suspect this will not be resolved for a good few hours yet :( Just tried to launch a flight without ChasePlane and all the cameras are messed up so it's not possible. I don't have a hat switch on my yoke (Brunner CLS-E) so have no way of flying until the ChasePlane issues are resolved. Very frustrating indeed.

    TEXTURE_SIZE_EXP=10 gives me out of memory

    That 'tweak' shouldn't do a thing regarding autogen, it increases the resolution of your textures.
