  1. I tried tonight changing the AA settings gs to all of them and it didn’t seem to make a difference.
  2. Do you think this would be fixed in 4.4 with the new PBR? This happens to me at all FSDT airports at night. Do you think there is a Tomatoshade setting that I can turn off in the profile that I am using that would eliminate this?

    8X SS A new Fan

    I did a flight last night in the FSlabs320 at night from LAS-LAX (FSDreamteam and Orbx). I decided to do 4 x SSAA from my normal MSAA. Though the framerate number was lower (I don't pay attention to framerates in terms of the actual number), the smoothness of the flight was the same to me and I didn't notice any difference whatsoever. The weather wasn't a factor so that might make things worse in SSAA if it is poor. With that being said, I am not sure what the benefits should have been. I do not run 4k and my specs are below. I am not complaining since I have a smoot sim in both scenarios but just curious.

    All I Want for Christmas is...

    Couldn’t agree with you more but I would say there is no chance Santa will have that in his sleigh this Xmas.

    What is the difference between MSAA and SSAA? I did a quick check and didn’t notice anything.

    First reactions to P3Dv4.4

    I don't use photoscenery but use 3rd party airports for all of my flights and since I flew at night, it was hard to tell anything different. I'll be able to do a day flight tomorrow and be able to notice more differences hopefully. Also, when running Active Sky, the upgrade to 4.4 somehow turned off real time weather so my flight was clear the entire flight and I didn't notice the settings until I was on final and noticed the RW metar was way different than what was shown in the sim.

    Are the effects that you are referring to default or are you using Rex Skyforce, Active Sky, etc?

    First reactions to P3Dv4.4

    I did the client install only because I have way too many 3rd party addons and was told there is nothing much to the scenery and content for my flying (tubeliners). After 1 flight, I didn't see any difference at all from 4.3. I did a night flight from KAUS-KIAH in the FSlabs320. Though it ran well, I didn't see any visual differences at all. Maybe its just me.
  9. I had this error happen (initcontactpoints()unsupportedprepar3dversion) much like NealG had in 4.3. Does your fix with FSlabs apply to 4.4? I want to minimize the chance of me messing things up further by tinkering with things but I also don't want to uninstall FSL. "I ran into an issue tonight when trying to install 4.4. I deleted the 4.3 client and ran the client install for 4.4. When starting the sim it loaded as normal and then I got a message saying "initcontactpoints()unsupportedprepar3dversion" . I did a quick google search to see if this is known and at first glance looked like it would be a FSlabs related error. At this point I was still waiting on the 4.4 Fslabs update to finish its download but wanted to at least see the differences of 4.4. So I figured that I can go into the sim while FSL was still downloading and got this error. Looking into what it could be I thought it might be that since I have the FSL planes still in the sim, 4.4 was causing this since the update wasn't finished downloading. Long story short, the download finished and it says that the latest update of FSlabs for 4.4 is in the sim. However, I still get the message when loading the sim. Can someone point me in the right direction? Do I need to completely uninstall my FSlabs planes and completely reinstall? If that is the case, where do I download the originals prior to running the 266b installer?"

    4.4 Issue

    Hello everyone. I ran into an issue tonight when trying to install 4.4. I followed the instructions below and ran the client install. When starting the sim it loaded as normal and then I got a message saying "initcontactpoints()unsupportedprepar3dversion" . I did a quick google search to see if this is known and at first glance looked like it would be a FSlabs related error. At this point I was still waiting on the 4.4 Fslabs update to finish its download but wanted to at least see the differences of 4.4. So I figured that I can go into the sim while FSL was still downloading and got this error. Looking into what it could be I thought it might be that since I have the FSL planes still in the sim, 4.4 was causing this since the update wasn't finished downloading. Long story short, the download finished and it says that the latest update of FSlabs for 4.4 is in the sim. However, I still get the message when loading the sim. Can someone point me in the right direction? Thanks~
  11. I figured I would chime in on this issue as last night I had something similar when flying into FSDT KLAS in 4.3 with AS16 and the FSlabs319. Winds were reported 020/7. While on approach to 26L right around 1000 feet, they shifted to 330/30 reported on my ND. I went around and the weather went back to what was reported. On short final, same thing happened again. I have never had this happen before.

    Quick Question on 4.4

    By only installing the client, what would I miss out on by not doing content and scenery? I wasn't sure if any of that PBR stuff or any of the "cool" new features are in content or scenery. I am always hesitant when doing these installs because I am afraid that I will lose addons by doing the content or scenery. However, if there is a must have within those files, than I'd want to know. Thanks!
  13. Of all of the payware US airports in 4.4, which are not compatible and which require a full reinstall after 4.4 is installed? I am trying to figure out when to convert over and thought I would check before I dive in. Thanks

    Skyforce Cloud Question

    Thanks

    Skyforce Cloud Question

    I have issues with distant clouds blending into the horizon and not getting distinct differences between cloud and sky. I was told that it is because my weather engine (AS16) is capping the visability in the distance. Is he referring to the cloud draw distance or something else in AS or P3D? Thanks!
