  1. sourcecode/release https://github.com/FarukEroglu2048/Volumetric-Clouds/tree/experimental linux/vulkan compatible. Linux Vulkan VR has an issue with the right eye, but still usable.
  2. not quite equivalent it seems, because go around to hold is part of the approach pattern, which depends on the aircraft and its equipment.
  3. You add them to the Patch folder of Ortho4XP when generating an Ortho photo tile World2Xplane does not modify terrain mesh afaik, so won't flatten fields or add hills to the mesh or create water.
  4. .osm files are patch files created by josm, you can use them in combination with Ortho4XP to add lakes and tune the terrain mesh height.
  5. The reason for the difference is, like for like, its pushing the cpu to the maximum on windows and not doing so on linux. Because windows has a terrible task scheduler that wastes up to 50% of cpu time mostly on needlessly context switching and the rest on a very poor scheduler causing lots of cache misses. which can generally be hacked around with process lasso. (or spending several thousand dollars on windows server for a scheduler that is still only almost as good as linux) vulkan removes a lot of the cpu overhead of opengl. it doesnt change the fact windows is still wasting 30-50% of the cpu horsepower needed for the remaining CPU tasks. windows and linux benefit from vulkan more or less equally there are actual numbers of what that looks like already in the thread. This is nothing contentious tbh, if you want cpu performance out of windows approaching that of linux, buy windows server 2020, windows home and professional are not intended for heavy realtime compute and simulation, only casual gaming and microsoft office.
  6. you know we were comparing linux vs windows right? not windows opengl vs windows vulkan
  7. 744 instead of 737. But you still may find this playlist helpful along with the others linked in https://github.com/mSparks43/747-400/blob/master/documentation/tutorial videos.md
  8. No point starting a new thread Beta 13 Fixing bad plugin blaming and race conditions. XPD-10911 Crashes at startup in OGL due to missing shaders. XPD-10914 Fixed missing pipeline with Thranda PC-6. Beta 12 XPD-10267 Fixed typo in data output screen. XPD-10705 Fixed Vulkan pipeline always using depth clamp instead of depth clip like we do on OpenGL and Metal. XPD-10747 AVI Video recording unplayable under Windows/Vulkan. XPD-10790 Fix crash if user has junk prefs for joysticks. XPD-10842 Fixed grid in ocean. XPD-10871 Analytics for custom navdata is broken. XPD-10873, XPD-10577 Crash with video recording. XPD-10879 Fix for “freezing.” XPD-10884, XPD-10883 Crash in Metal with lots of trees. XPD-10897 Fix for another missing shader. XPD-10900 Tuning TACAN through map inspector doesn’t work. XPD-10903 Fixed paging crawler trying to read obj kill datarefs from a backgrounds thread. XPD-10904 Fixed missing shaders when DXT alpha can go both ways.
  9. Because Austin cares about the bottom line for his company, not what the vocal minority of users who can't put a usb stick in the slot of their desktop think he should do with his company.
  10. again, 2.5 billion users on android, and people play video games on their devices not sure what "other" stats you are looking for. PS4 is FreeBSD (another posix OS), XBOX is nowhere.

  11. Anything lower than 50fps is an xplane bug - their high quality settings have been bugged for ~2 years. Plus, 20fps in Linux means they were probably running everything in powersave mode @1Ghz.
  12. Xplane mobile is ~ identical code to xplane desktop (actually more features since they rolled out MMO there first). windows is 60% of the ~300,000 xplane desktop installs 1,000,000+ google variant linux installs and 180,000 windows installs is not 0.9% Linux 60% windows. Your stats are wrong.
