  1. Hi guys, Just had the same thing happen here too...most odd. Did you find a solution? Cheers, Ady
  2. I definitely mis-read that thread title the first time I looked at it! 😮
  3. I did wonder why you didn’t do that from the beginning. My i9-9900k and Maximus Xi Formula are running XP11 solidly and I’m now able to run much smoother and have objects to maximum. Happy camper here.
  4. Not with X-Plane 11 or Aerofly FS2....
  5. Interested to see what you’re able to achieve with your setup Rob. I think the refrigeration unit will certainly help! Have a nice weekend of playing.
  6. Hi! I'm keen to understand more about why you didn't like XP 11. Simply because I'm keen on the different perspective. I moved across to XP11 after giving it a good go and finding so much is free and built-in. Take camera angles for instance - you need to buy ChasePlane on P3D but it's built in to XP11. Take replay mode - you have to buy ChasePlane but it's built in to XP11 and is much better than ChasePlane. There's now a PMDG quality free Boeing 737. You can use Ortho4XP. Orbx have now released UK South and it's incredible. Oh yes, talking of that, I can fly over the very densely populated London scenery and land at EGLL without any issue. I can't do that on P3D without significantly decreasing settings. And let's not forget lighting - every light in XP11 is real, not a texture. I know P3D has dynamic lighting but it always killed my performance. Please understand that this is not me 'evangelising' per se, simply me pointing out what I think objectively makes XP11 a good platform. As I say, I'm keen to hear your perspective.
  7. Whilst it's a shame, I have to say that I was quite disappointed when I met Matt at Cosford this year. I went up and introduced myself, only to be met with a highly stand-off and almost arrogant response with a hint of 'why are you bothering me?'. I'm sure that wasn't his intention, at least I hope it wasn't, but it did leave a bitter taste in my mouth. I know he's got some tough stuff going on in his private life, but I don't know why that would lead to treating people in the way he did. Meeting Chewie, on the other hand, was a thoroughly pleasant experience. Edit: After just reading Matt's post, perhaps this explains it to some degree.
  8. 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!
  9. 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 🙂
  10. 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!
  11. 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
  12. Rob's Titan XP is pretty much equivalent to a 1080Ti - it just an extra 1GB of RAM.
  13. To be fair, if it was that good and viable, why has it completely disappeared? The website no longer works.
  14. 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
  15. 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).
  16. Never leaves 38?? Even under full load? What CPU have you got please and do you overclock it?
  17. 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?
  18. 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.
  19. 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
  20. 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.
  21. 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.
  22. That 'tweak' shouldn't do a thing regarding autogen, it increases the resolution of your textures.
  23. Hi Jeroen, I found that article after posting and just came back to see if I could remove my question. I understand that everyone has a different view on things but I'm most interested in why you don't think the perfect ATC add-on exists yet. What do you think is missing from the current offerings? Thanks, Ady
  24. Hi everyone, I'm interested in any feedback you might have around ATC add-ons for P3D v4. It's something I think it missing from my simulator experience and I'm not a big fan of VATSIM or IVAO. I understand there are a few options but I'm not sure on the pros and cons of each and would appreciate your thoughts. Do any of the existing add-ons even support P3D v4? Thanks in advance! Ady
