  1. Thanks, I didn’t know about this! How do you activate this??
  2. Now that’s dramatic. It’s super easy to use. Just load airlines and download their flight plans with the one click tool.
  3. Guys, how much VRAM are you able to use with your AMD GPU?
  4. This may be unnecessary but it can't do anything bad. Always better to start vanilla, see if it works, before adding stuff. Especially in V5.
  5. I think that ASCA doesn't change textures in the sim folder because you can run P3D without starting ASCA and then you will have default clouds and sky. You can do the test: start a scenario without ASCA open and then start ASCA, you'll see new clouds popping.
  6. I mostly find Orbx products very well optimized. Even GB TrueEarth which was unplayable around London is now super smooth thanks to their updates + v5 optimization. I used to have texture flickers in P3Dv4 but it's better in V5 for me.
  7. I have no idea but I am 99% certain disabling it fixed the issues. Before the hotfix I also had an odd issue where Envtex was making P3D crash (DGXUI error) on the scenario screen. Even after uninstalling Envtex, I had to untick the plugin box to get P3D to load. Must be related to my AMD Radeon VII GPU, but it looks like bugs.
  8. So, I just tested installing Envtex and everything was working perfectly. I decided to try adding Envshade. I also installed Traffic Global at the same time. When starting any scenario I would get a device hung error. I thought this was related to VRAM, even though I have 16gb and my GPU monitor showed almost no usage. I tried lowering and lowering settings, with no effect. Then I uninstalled Envshade and Envtex because I thought this error was caused by Envshade. But same error. Tried uninstalling and reinstalling the client. Same issue. Then I uninstalled Traffic Global but the problem was still there. In the end I found out it was still present in the Addons, so I unchecked it. And voila, P3D scenario started. I then pushed all settings back to high and everything working fine. Still have to try reinstalling Envtex and Envshade to see how it goes.
  9. Hello, To me Envtex and Envshade have been mandatory in P3Dv4 but now with new textures and Enhanced Atmospherics in P3Dv5 I was wondering about your experience? Do you see better runway textures with Envtex VS vanilla? What about water textures and animation since it got a new engine in the v5?
  10. I’ve had the device hung caused by a third party addon (Traffic Global). Took me many CTDs to find that this particular addon was responsible. If you ask me, this is a P3Dv5 bug that should get fixed ASAP. Addons can cause problems but I see no reasons for CTDs, as this wasn’t happening in v4.
  11. Uninstalled client, installed new one. Took 2 minutes. All major problems are fixed now. No need to post novels.
  12. New hot fix solved the camera issues with my Radeon VII. I'm getting VRAM issues again and I have 16Gb and lowered everything... Edit: issues were caused by a faulty addon. So far it’s excellent!
  13. I have never EVER seen morphing of mountains or terrain anywhere within the vicinity of my aircraft in XP11 or DCS. The bad mesh resolution in XP11 is one of the reasons I stopped using XP11. You need hundreds of GB of mesh data.
  14. I wish there was a functional de-ice system (dummy buttons unfortunately) and a better G1000. Buy I’ve yet to find another P3D plane with such a nice G1000. Using FSAerodata and Navigraph I have all updated frequencies and procedures. Plane management would be nice too (Wear and tear, etc.) Other than that, this plane is vastly superior to most of the GA paywares out there, except A2A of course. Its almost as if people would prefer a badly coded plane with plenty of updates to fix the issues rather than something excellent from the day it was released.
  15. Last time I heard he was having family issues (illness). I’ve been flying the DA62 for hundreds of hours and I’m used to A2A quality. I don’t understand people complaining that it’s a dead project. It was released fully functional and even though I like some support and updates, it’s already close to perfect. No manual but you can read the official manual, it’s all there. It’s a very modern plane, checklists and procedures are easy to follow IRL and in the sim. I don’t understand what people need more...
  16. Mind to explain what is the AMD issue?? Thanks
  17. Many people unhappy with clouds but isn’t it possible to replace the cloud textures with Envtex/Skyforce/ASCA?
  18. What you said was correct but in my opinion it should be used when you don’t have the best setup ever. OP has a beast of a computer and a great screen. I feel like he would be downgrading his experience by doing this 30Hz trick instead of finding better solutions. Again, in my humble, subjective, opinion and with my own experience...
  19. I know the correlation between FPS and refresh rate but this is sometimes very subjective. When I use Joinfs I limit my frame rate to 35fps to get in sync with my colleagues and I often forget to disable it and even limited at 35fps I hardly see any « stutters » on my 60Hz 21:9, 34 inches screen. I’d be curious to see an example of those stutters with an acceptable frame rate in video if you have some links?
  20. This doesn’t mean anything if you don’t give details. I am way over 30fps on photoreal sceneries with max autogen and most settings to the max. Same outside urban areas, for example Orbx Alaska, it will give me much more than 30fps at all time with excellent settings and real weather.
  21. Obviously something is wrong with your installation because you should have an amazing performance with this hardware on default sceneries and aircrafts. With Trackir and when I installed my 9900K and Radeon VII, on an Orbx Scenery with an A2A plane the first time was so smooth I felt my head was turning too fast! Edit: I’m talking about P3D v4. If it’s on v5 then it must be a bug with this new version!
  22. Reason has to be your hardware/settings/sceneries. When flying in complex aircraft, over very complex scenery with hundreds of custom buildings, with a lot of AI traffic in an overcast layer, this can kill your FPS. But then you can change your settings in this kind of situation. I don’t run same settings for a photoreal scenery in Europe and for Orbx Alaska.
  23. Running a monitor at 30Hz is horrible to watch and in my opinion it’s something you do if you are desperate. You shouldn’t have to resort to this kind of tweaking.
