  1. 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
  2. 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.
  3. 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
  4. Hi everyone, i have P3dv4.5 and a problem in trees transparency as you can see in the link. My laptop is a i9, 8gbram, Intel UHD 600 and 8gb of ram. Dx version 12. I have tried reinstalling the simulator but it didnt change. Also restoring the laptop. I hope someone could help me please. Thanks The pictures: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1MGAsryxA5hu0rKFOJSQ1vZRoH8Sx-P4F?usp=sharing
  5. 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
  6. I was just sitting on the ground at KMSP, tweaking my PTA and ReShade. Figured it needed a beauty shot.

  8. 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.
  9. 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.

  11. 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
  12. 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
  13. 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.?
  14. 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
  15. Hi Keven, just wondering when you envisage the update pertaining to the inclusion of Portals/Walls for Chaseplane will be ready for implementation/roll out to customers? (as per page 48 of the User manual - Aircraft Section) Thanks & Regards,
  16. My new sky textures "SPRING" + PTA preset + folder with ready shaders (version of simulator 4.5) for those who do not have PTA. Installation instructions included. I wish you a beautiful flight!
  17. Hi Everyone, Having re-installed P3Dv4.5 three times now. Every time I select the PMDG 777, the aircraft selection pane, (the one where the aircraft revolves/spins) TURNS solid white, along with the OK button, to start the flight. These remain solid white in colour for quite some time (10 secs) but eventually P3D does start up with the Black screen as expected. BUT the black screen just hangs, and I haver to restart my PC, However when I restart my PC, P3Dv4.5 boots up and places me back at the selection window (Aircraft selection, airport, weather, time). If I select any default P3D aircraft P3D operates and loads as normal. Just for your information: I have also re-loaded latest PMDG 777, several times now with same result, and have also deleted P3D.cfg file several times with no improvement. Any help or advice would be very much appreciated, thanks for your time. John Specs: Intel i7700k, 32gb Ram, SSD, AORUS 1080ti Graphic card, running windows 10
  18. Whenever I try to fly from any of the Canary Islands P3D crashes with kernell.dll as a culprit. Became aware when trying to fly out of GCXO with RFS Tenerife North Scenery. After searching on the Internet concerning this error found possible action route. Cleared all the shaders and replaced by default. Deleted the P3D configuration file Removed all Canary Islands scenery except for default. Thereafter simulator loads fine and even enters the scenario, however after a bit of panning it freezes and then P3D crashes. Have even tried to take off from GCTS also with default scenery but still get crashes. Wondering if anyone else has had similar issues and grateful for any other possible leads on how to fix this. All other areas in the Sim work very well and have had no issues whatsoever. Thanks
  19. A bit of flying in California USA and finding my way through clouds in the trusty A2A C182 (trusty only provided it's kept maintained that is). The A2A C182 is a great plane to fly, load it up with passengers and cargo and it handles very differently to just a single pilot and can be quite the handful to fly. And it you don't do the walkarounds and neglect maintenance it's just as likely to fail (see end pic...) Found a gap! And into it I go And out the other side. Lack of maintenance on a A2A accusim aircraft can result in falling out of the sky!
