  1. Hello all, I would like your opinions on a graphics card for P3D that will best suite my rig. My current setup is as follows: CPU: Intel Core i7-4790k @4.0Ghz (NOT willing to overclock) GPU: AMD Radeon R9 290 (NOT X) Motherboard: Gigabyte Z97-HD3 Power Supply: 800w The case has got room for a full sized GPU With P3D I use: All PMDG's Aerosoft A318-A321 Payware scenery for most popular airports (EGLL KJFK CYYZ) With my current GPU while flying into the airports listed above^ in the Aerosoft A321 I get about 15-20fps. 15-20fps I can deal with, but it is when I step into the PMDG 737 that I get frames in the 10-16fps range. I have all the drivers for my GPU, and have tweaked P3D (Which has helped some), and I have the latest updates/patches to P3D. I think it might be time to retire this card. I was thinking something along the lines of an EVGA 970? If there is anyone reading this with this current card that sims on P3D, I would greatly appreciate a response. I don't really want to go above $450 CAD. Thanks for your help. -Thomas
  2. I own FSX Gold (FSX Deluxe + Acceleration) but wanted to install FSX on more PCs but can't find FSX Gold at a sensible price anywhere (not interested in FSX SE right now). Is FSX Acceleration required for modern addons or would FSX Deluxe + SP2 do just as good a job? I understand that the SDKs for SP2 and Acceleration are different.
  3. Hello Together! I've got a huge Problem for a few weeks. Every Aircraft-Addon I install doesn't seem to work. I can't even find them in the Addon bar and it's not asking for permission when I startup FSX:SE. I think it's a SDK or SimConnect issue because the Aircraft isn't initializing at all, as you can see in this picture: I already reinstalled it and cleaned the registry, even using the normal FSX:MS, it doesn't work anymore. I also installed the SDK for FSX:SE on FSX\SDK\Core Utilities Kit\SimConnect SDK\LegacyInterfaces. I really don't know any solution anymore. Could you help me? Best Regards! Robert
  4. Hi all, I finally got the PMDG 737 NGX update installed and the FPS has increased by a few. I am just curious as to measures I could take to improve my frankly dire FPS further. My specs are below and they run other games decently, although the PC is over a year old now. I currently get around 12-17 FPS over areas such as London in the PMDG on settings shown below. I also have Orbx FTX England and FTX Wales installed and running. I get around 30FPS in the countryside and I am happy with between 24-30 FPS. I am also using Rex Essential with Overdrive and using the HD cloud textures, as well as some nice textures for the runway, taxiways e.t.c. I have already tried running fsx.exe as "realtime" priority and this gains a few frames. I could really use some advice on what to do here, as I feel I should be getting more frames on a 9 year old game, be it a very power hungry one. Running 1920x1080. Thanks for your time and my specs + FSX configuration are below (There is a lot to read ) Settings: Frame Rate Unlimited 1920x1080x32 Preview DX10 - Off Lens Flare - On Light Bloom - Off Advanced

  5. Hello guysn'gals! - I'm a newbie. But it didn't take long before I had several add-ons. And today I'm making a fresh install of the entire system. A tedious job. Whilst sitting here, I started to think that if you have more than addon that targets the same area, in this case the environment surrounded by the world, is it something special one should keep in mind when installing? As an exampel, this is what I have : UltimateTerrainX Europe ORBX FTX GlobalBase ORBX FTX GlobalVECTOR ORBX FTX OpenLC Europe REX TextureDirect REX SoftClouds REX EssentialPlus Is it just rocknroll? Or should I do this to prevent that from happen? Or should I implement this before that, otherwise those won't be selectable? Or is it just plain rockenroll, it doesnt matter? I hope you understand what I mean and what my question is. Swenglish can somtimes look a little...odd. Best regards ratata Sweden
  6. Hey guys, We all know about (and maybe use) those fancy, complex, award-winning, visually stunning, high-priced addons, which are frequently featured in YouTube videos or enquired about in the Avsim forums. I am curious, however, if there are addons or tools for FSX, which are rarely mentioned here, because they might only appeal to certain simmers or do stuff, that seems unnoticeable (and yet might be important for some). So, feel free to post, what you believe to be the most underrated addon/tool for FSX (whether free- or payware): What's its name? What does it do? And why is that important to you? For me, it would be Flusifix. It allows you to do a bunch of stuff (fixing some minor issues, tweaking lots of values in fsx.cfg and aircraft.cfg), but most important to me is, that you can change the AI taxi speed: Since I like to fly with lots of AI aircraft around, increasing taxi speed for AI aircraft makes them vacate the runway faster, allowing me to actually land at busy airports (and not having to go around all the time) and leads to less congestion on the ground (though making AI aircraft movement look less realistic). Cheers, Dom
  7. i have a 120 dollars worth of visa gift cards and was wondering what would be the best fsx addons to buy i already have the pmdg 737ngx, rex essential plus overdrive, pfpx, topcat, and fsdreamteam KDFW
  8. Basically the title says it all.I'm trying to get the most realism out of my sim (P3DV3.3) and don't know which to go for. Any recommendations are welcome and are greatly appreciated! (I fly both tubeliners and GA aircraft)

    TU-144 Prototype- released?

    This is the plane in question: I've searched far and wide to see if this plane was ever released. I want to see if anyone can help search, and if it is out there, bring more attention to it and make it more available to download.
  10. Hi guys, If anyone need help picking out the best FSX addons for 2014, you should check out for a complete list / guide. Pretty much every category is there; aircraft, airports, scenery, weather etc, even equipment for FSX - and it has small reviews and articles included. You will not be disappointed. Aimed at everybody, but especially those who really wanna break away from the default planes or simple freeware. Enjoy !

  12. With the pending release of an updated version of P3D, AVSIM members who have problems installing 3rd Party Software into updated versions of P3D should contact the vendor for instructions on how to install the software. In most cases the vendor will have to release an updated installer. Please do not use these forums for discussing how to modify a 3rd Party addon to make it work in a later version of P3D. When the new version of P3D is released, it may take some time for 3rd Party vendors to create an installer for the new version. We recommend you keep the current version installed and install the next version in another folder if you would like to continue using your addons. Most likely addon vendors will have new installers or instructions for installing their product(s) soon after the release of the updated P3D version. Some 3rd Party vendors may charge a fee for providing an update to their respective software for installation into later versions of P3D. If this is the case, it could be against the vendor’s EULAs or license agreements for you to attempt to install a current version of their product(s) into a later version of P3D. Discussions regarding those vendors that require a new EULA and/or installer for V3 will be prohibited. Photos and video: Photos and videos showing 3rd Party Software whose EULA would be violated for updated versions of P3D will be removed at the discretion of our moderators.

  14. I have two new SSD drives (250 GB and 500 GB) and acquired a brand new copy of FSX Gold. I not sure where it would be best to install FSX and its addons across multiple drives. I was thinking of installing FSX on the "C" drive (not in "Program Files") and the addons on the other SSD. My FSX folder is 238 GB and another drive has over 40 GB of various addons. These two drives with Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit will be dedicated to FSX only and are in quick hot swap slots. I also have three other slower drives of 1 to 2 TB each. I tried to research this and found very little which most was outdated in my opinion. Thanks for your time and help in this venture that I have been pining over for quite some time. "Hidden Contents" lists some of my addons.
  15. Hello, I currently am running a A6-3670K APU with a Radeon 4850 HD GPU. I know that both of these components are outdated. I have many addons such as FTX Global, ASN, Aerosoft Airbus, PMDG 737, REX, and various airports. I am getting about 10 fps sitting on the ground at FSDreamTeam DFW. I am looking to upgrade my processor to an I5 and my GPU to a current card. What is the best value I5 that would run FSX smoothly? I don't need 80 fps, just trying to get it up to about 25-30. Thanks!
