  1. I've noticed this problem for a while but its never really bothered me, and after fixing a missing autogen issue (thanks 29palms skiathos!!) i couldn't help but notice that this peculiar issue was happening near Heathrow. It only happens at EGLL, and i did a test and it only happens when i have UK2000 EGLL enabled. Turning it off and reloading fixes the issue. Perhaps a bugged autogen.xml in P3D? Maybe something happened in UK2K EGLL itself? I can't find any forum posts on their website about this issue (they're pretty dead anyways)
  2. P3dv4, Cessna 410, flight from PAMR to PAKN, ATC changed altitudes 8 times in less than 45 minutes. Started out at 5000, up to 5600, down to 5000 up to 6800 back down to 5000, up to 11000, down to 6300, back up to 11000 and down again to 6300. Light GA traffic. Another from PAHO to PAMR, ATC left me 11 miles out at 7000. with no alternatives, had to close out ATC and circle to land. Is this uncommon, in both cases the flight was in Mountainous terrain, in the first case if I had descended as instructed it would have place me below the highest elevation. Is there a addon ATC program that is better than the default? Thank you
  3. Hi Team, Been having an issue with CTD when I switch airports. It takes me three or four times to get the sim to start working. I have tried building a new CFG and deleted new sceneries. I have tried other tips I've seen over the forums but nothing is working. I figure I would ask in this forum before I completely uninstall sceneries, aircraft, and other tools. Specs: Processor: Intel® Core™ i7-9700K Processor (8x 3.60GHz/12MB L3 Cache) Motherboard:MSI Z390-A PRO - USB 3.2 Ports (1 Type-C, 3 Type-A), M.2 Slot (2) Memory:16 GB [8 GB X2] DDR4-3000 Memory Module - Certified Major Brand Gaming Memory [Free Upgrade to 16GB DDR4-3200 XPG D41 RGB] Video Card: Radeon RX 6700XT Memory: 12GB GDDR6 Thank you.
  4. I was just sitting on the ground at KMSP, tweaking my PTA and ReShade. Figured it needed a beauty shot.

  6. Hope someone might be able to help. I recently installed the PMDG 747 QTS II with recent update, however now my P3D will load through the splash screen then run in the background with no scenario screen options. When I go to the Task Manager it shows it running but no icon or anything. I also have done the following: Uninstalled PMDG, including Operations Center Uninstalled and reinstalled the client. Deleted the P3D.cfg file and let the system generate a new one. All above have been done to no avail. Please help! I really don't want to uninstall and reinstall everything! Nate
  7. Some screenshots from my recent flight from Amsterdam to Las Vegas with the QW787. With the start of the summer season KLM operates 4 weekly direct flights from Amsterdam to Las Vegas.
  8. The repeating landclass textures in Asia had made me give up flying in the region (apart from Australia to Hong Kong, for which I have good photo scenery). Then I discovered Gibson Sceneries' North East China and China - Hong Kong to Shanghai v2 payware. The product is described as "economical real scenery for en-route flying above medium altitudes", so above FL100 is where it starts to look good. Now, it might only be LOD12, however, for ~25 GB of disk space (I deleted the duplicate LOD 11 that came with it), I now have the whole eastern part of China. It's made a big enough difference to me that I'm now interested in buying some mainland China payware airports. Climbing out over Bao'an (Pearl River Delta) and ZGSZ Guangzhou Somewhere over Inner Mongolia Somewhere over Jiangxi Province Shanghai Beijing Coverage area It's not for low and slow VFR, but I like how it looks on the climb, in the cruise and on descent. Water masking is good if you like the default water to show. I prefer the real water version. For the cost of a good payware airport in P3D you can have a lot of photo scenery.
  9. Well, it had to happen, came down pretty ill, lots of thowing up with the shakes and temp etc. Went to the local quack's office, no joy - no can see Drs. until a Covid-19 test has been passed...🤔 Fortunatelly the Covid clinic is right next door, but of course after being tested you gotta isolate for a couple of days while awaiting the test results. So took that time to work from home and not having to commute meant time for installing and a bit of flying of a few more Covid-19 specials. Turns out by the time I got the results I was feeling much better, no need to see Drs. and didn't have Covid-19 anyway. 😀 Cheers The Carenado Beechcraft King Air 350i - I watched an MSFS king Air 350 video today and turns out the Carenado 350i has at least 70% more working switchs and performs closer to the real thing, well according to an actual King Air 350 pilot that is. No doubt the Milviz release tops them all though. Notice the left prop is not spinning? That's because I broke the engine on my first flight and had to turn back to the airport. The Embraer 120 Brasilia. I haven't really ever flown any of these twin regionals previously, never had a workstation with enough power or enough $$ to afford such gear, but nowdays the gear is so much more powerful and this one flys quite nicely. The Alabeo C421C (with a few mods). Nice plane. The Alabeo Piper Sport, a fun little Czech aircraft that was sold under the Piper brand for a short time before reverting away from Piper. Reminds me of flying in FSW. The venerable C208B EX HD, the glass gauge version. Bought to complete the collection (the HD steam gauge and cargomaster). This one comes with cockpit immersive sounds, unlike the HD Steam Gauge release where I had to create and add my own. The Socata TBM 850. This one I cleaned up the GPS 1000 XML code as it was just littered with issues pumping out a constent steam of errors into the ContentErrers.txt file. You'd think devs would use such a logging option to review their code, but nooo, although some must do because some planes don't have errors. And finally the C195 Business Liner, they don't make them like that anymore, fun fact, they used one on the TV show "Project Blue Book" (a show based on the USAF's UFO investigation team, stars that LittleFinger guy from GOT) The End ! Cheers
  10. Default models from FSX to P3Dv4.5. ORBX NZ, PTA, Photoshop
  11. So all my aircraft have loaded for example PMDG and the 787 that are in the base folder, however after searching, re installing everything the correct way(I have to use my D drive as my C drive is full) I am having issues with any aircraft including the Aerosoft Airbuses not loading in P3D V4.5 and im about to pull my hair out.. Deleted the folders, did a complete reinstall according to each Developer and Lockheed's posts. I am still stuck with only aircraft in the P3D SimObjects folder. I would really appreciate if someone could help. I would greatly Appreciate it. Steve
  12. Hi, I have been trying to clear up some space on my c drive and low and behold I copied the contents of the documents folder to my desktop and moved the original documents folder to my d drive to make some space. I went to move it back later in the evening and realised the default c/users/documents/ folder was deleted. I stioll have the contents of the folder including the p3d Add ons folder, but my p3dv4.5 is now giving a scenery config error on startup for the few sceneries that were installed using the add ons document folder method. I wonder could someone help about what I should do? Its a couple of UK2000 sceneries that are in the scenery config messsages, I have deleted them from the scenery library and was going to reinstall them, but what if there is no default p3d add ons folder in c/user/documents/ for when the installer wants to put them there? Please help, I fear I've messed something up bad. P3d still starts fine otherwise and other sceneries like flytampa EKCH and LGKR work well. Thank you.
  13. My flight sim equipment includes an i7 8700K processor @ 4.8 OC, an RTX 2060 Super 8GB graphics card, 32GB RAM memory and 3 24" monitors in surround. Everything runs on SSDs. I still get blurries occasionally and when I have my frame rate limited to 30 it stays between 28 and 30. I do most of my flying in A2A aircraft including the war birds. My favorite for just flying around is the Piper Comanche 250 and I like to fly low. This could be a blurries producer. Anyway, how much of all this stuff does P3Dv4.5 utilize. How much of the CPU is actually used by the sim. What about the resources of the graphics card. Now, I do have my settings quite high, but not maxed out. The blurries, by the way, just recently got worse than they use to be. I think they got worse when I re-installed P3Dv4.5 a few weeks ago. I also have lots of power eating ORBX scenery. Any thoughts from the experts, Thanks
  14. Hi everyone, I'm hoping for some support here, as I'm honestly quite lost right now. Up until a few days ago, I was flying around without any issues in P3D v4.5, all of my settings being unchanged for months and using all sorts of add-on planes, scenery, weather, shaders, textures, etc. Everything was looking beautiful and I was enjoying it a lot. Without changing anything in the sim, I suddenly experienced a massive drop in FPS (to < 15) and blurry textures in scenarios that were no problem before. This issue unfortunately still persists, despite my desparate attempts to narrow it down. This is what I've done since the problem appeared (in the following order and with reboots/tests in between): Disabled VolFog and AA Disabled all add-on scenery Disabled all other add-ons (weather, GSX, SODE, FSUIPC, etc.) Restored P3D's default shaders Restored the default P3D.cfg Removed all user generated files (as per LM's general debugging steps) Reset all NVidiaProfileInspector settings to default Installed a legacy P3D v4.4 client Updated my graphics card driver Installed an older graphics card driver again Disabled my CPU and GPU overclocking None of this solved my issue or caused even the slightest improvement. The only way I could get back to my old FPS performance was to dramatically reduce scenery complexity, LoD radius and draw distance through the settings (complexity sliders at "sparse" instead of "dense" or even "very dense", the latter of which I used for VFR flying without any issues a few days ago). So, I decided to completely uninstall P3D and all of my add-ons, as I thought one of my many add-ons might have messed up the sim. Afterwards I set the CPU and GPU overclocking back on. Today, I started testing with my fresh P3D v4.5 installation which I had downloaded again. P3D default scenario, all settings unchanged = all fine (as expected due to low settings) P3D default scenario, all settings back up to the low range of what I was using before = bad performance again (stuttering, low FPS) This is with no add-ons enabled and a complete clean installation. I locked my FPS to 30 via RivaTuner which took some load off the GPU, but the problems are still there, no matter if the GPU is working at 70% or 100%. Currently I am experiencing stutters again with GPU load at approx. 80% and the CPU at approx. 70%. This is flying from KVPS (P3D default) in the default F-22, using settings that would normally be fine for flying an add-on airliner out of Frankfurt with a complex weather scenario. Of course I was used to FPS going down in other cases before too, but not to the current level that really makes the Sim impossible to use, unless I fly virtually without any objects in the scenery. I tried to rule out a hardware issue. So I performed a test via userbenchmark.com, which resulted in all of my components performing "as expected" or "way above expectations". Not sure if this is enough to rule out any issues here? Right now, I'm completely lost and don't know what to try next. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you in advance! Let me know if I should post any further information and I'll gladly do so. Best regards, Daniel tl;dr: My P3D v4.5 has become a complete FPS and stutter desaster out of nothing, even after a clean reinstall, with no changes made to the settings My system specs: CPU: Intel Core i5-7600K OC@4.4 GHz GPU: Nvidia GTX 1060-6GB SSD: Intel SSD 256GB HDD: Seagate ST1000 1TB RAM: G.SKILL Ripjaws 4 DDR4 3000 C15 4x4GB MBD: Asrock Z270 Pro4 OS: Win 10 Home 64 Bit Sim: P3D v4.5
  15. Sent a support ticket and heard nothing back? The immersion is not working, no lights, no vapor.. nothing... it shows correct in the immersion manager window but fails to work after i close it.?
  16. Next stage of my Ant Tecnam Seasky Canada flight - Pender Harbour by Orbx. Enjoying flying the ANT Tecnam Seasky float plane, this time some screenies from the freeware Orbx Pender Harbour Seaplane Base (CAG8). Truely some developers go for an amazing level of detail above and beyond that needed just for flying over an area and I just had to showcase a portion of it. (Note the bike riding avatar is part of a non-Orbx scenery package). Cheers
  17. Looking to a few final buys of the year while there are end of year specials going on. And testing RealTurb on Africa (Africa RealTurb is free) on a leadup and overfly of Mt. Kilimanjaro. For this test I had Accu-Feel disabled to garner a general feeling of what to expect. And it's pretty good, RealTurb makes my end of year buy list. Also experimenting with DSR 4K to see how much of the GFX card it draws, over the African plains it's quite flyable with my 1070Ti. (which I would have already replaced if it was possible to buy a current card...next year perhaps). The Carenado C208B HD with Steam Gauges. I've attached a sound to practically every switch, knob, lever, window, seat etc. and have installed the GPS 2020 unit (from Avsim file library) into both the dash and as a popup and managed to keep all the functional 3D knobs via a separate LVar assignment while removing those that would otherwise be attached to the GPS (where they shoudn't). Also replaced the turbine sounds set. Although Caranado planes don't have a huge mount of depth they are still nice to fly and have a nice look about them, plus I enjoyed the challange of the improvements I've applied. Cheers R
  18. Hello, Since I cannot find any of their support forums, I'd like to ask for an opinion of those who own the product already whether it's CTD-free or not.I own both 737 and 747, and have zero issues. Hope that the T7 is reliable in the same manner Thanks
