Hello captains, I don't know if here is the right place to put this but I think that this is an interesting tool. https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B6atkUYYWmkteHhkaG5aUkVpcnc/edit?usp=sharing This is a software that I wrote to myself but I think that it can be helpful to many people. This software monitors your FSX VAS. It's very intuitive. Just double click on setup to install. After the installation, double click the FSX VAS Monitor icon. If the FSX is already started, FSX VAS Monitor should automatically start to read the FSUIPC offset 024C. If the FSX was started after the FSX VAS Monitor, click the Connect Button and it will start monitoring. there are only 4 adjusts to set, the minimum quantity of memory avaliable before trigger the alarm (in MB), if the alarm will run with the red text blinking and a ding sound, and if the FSX VAS Monitor should start directly on system tray. System Requeriments: FSX (obviously) with FSUIPC installed. It works with WideFS too (Ideal to people that use two or more computers). This software is free to distribute. have a good flights...

Hello pilots, I´ve made an update of a small tool of mine that I would like to share with you. VAS Monitor is a tool that allow you to see how much VAS memory you have on your flights on FSX and P3d. You can see the VAS amount, set a value to alarm you and pause the sim when a minimum VAS is reached (with visual and audible alarm) and a button to scramble your ambient music of FSPassengers, so not all your flights will have the same music sequence. It´s very simple and free. I hope it helps you in some way. Requeriments: FSUIPC (not registered); VAS Monitor Download P.S. Sorry about my english, it´s not my main language. Cheers Fred Matias
Recently, I was flying the PMDG 777 from EGLL to KSFO (flight BA285/BAW11M), and my route took me ever so slightly south of Iceland and over the southern part of Greenland. After leaving the west coast of Greenland, I received a high VAS warning from FSUIPC, and I realised that my VAS usage was at 94%. This was significantly higher than I would have expected, and - eventually - I got an OOM error (my first one in Prepar3d V3). I honestly can't figure out what caused it; P3D handles VAS very well, and I have flown this flight once before with exactly the same scenery and settings, and there were absolutely no issues. The only difference between this flight* and my previous flight** is that this flight's route took me much closer to Iceland (further north). Therefore, I can only think of three possible causes: 1) Something in Iceland led to an extremely significant increase in VAS usage (in spite of the fact that I don't own any scenery in Iceland); 2) Orbx recently updated the Orbx Libraries, and this was related to whatever caused the OOM error; 3) I flew over Manchester, and UK2000's EGCC caused a dramatic increase in VAS usage (which I find difficult to believe). I am aware that Orbx have a free Iceland demonstration product; however, I have never installed it. I would like to emphasise that the VAS usage when I flew this flight previously was nowhere near 94% when I was leaving the west coast of Greenland, and all of my scenery and settings were exactly the same. The only difference (as far as I am aware) was the route. Thank you for taking the time to read this; I would be very appreciative if anyone could provide a possible explanation for this seemingly random increase in VAS usage.
