  1. Hello, I have some FPS issues in P3Dv3.4. My PC isn't the best but my performance drops from awesome 17 FPS with clear skies to average 10 in thunderstorm. I am using REX skyforce which I installed immediately after getting P3D so I'm not sure if it hits fps more than default clouds. REX settings are the lowest - for best performance. I found out by extensive testing that cirrus clouds don't hit FPS, and the issue is mainly with cumulonimbus clouds (and other storm clouds) I tried to reduce the file size of the textures with online .bmp compressor which didn't help, also tried reducing resolution from 512x512 to 128x128, no difference. Also tried to restore the default .cld models located in Prepar3D v3\Weather\clouds (friend with same version had to send them to me since REX backup failed completely), doesn't seem to help much either .cfg settings are both minimum for the clouds and no antialiasing used Only thing that seems to help is using simple clouds (not detailed) they have no fps impact, but they look terrible, especially the storm (there is no storm, just a few 2D clouds) I also read about Cloud.fx in Prepar3D v3\ShadersHLSL\ (there are also other cloud related .fx files in here) that some changes can help performance (people used older versions of this file from v2, but all of these downloads are no longer available) So, the questions: Is there anything I can do to improve the clouds performance? (modifying .bmp's or the cloud.fx file (maybe someone could send the modifyed or older to me)) OR Is there a way to make the simple clouds look like an actual storm and overcast and not just blue skies? Thank you so much. Regards, Dominik
  2. Slt all FR :smile: depuis 8 ans je fais des tutos pour les Français car il y en trop peu sur PMDG voir pas du tout. Je sais que beaucoup de personnes ici n'en noront pas besoin mais d'autre si alors comme le 737 et le 777 je reprends les bases, comme bien connaitre son environnement de vol avant de faire un call and dark 100% des Youtubeurs ne le font pas et encore moins en FR... Alors voilà PMDG 747 Queen of the Skies II - P3DV3 - Premières impressions - Patie 1 PMDG 747 Queen of the Skies II - P3DV3 Bien connaitre sont environement de vol - Patie 2 PMDG 747 Queen of the Skies II - P3DV3 Call and Dark Procedure Air France - Patie 3 Bientôt Alors je me trompe 3 / 4 fois dans mes paroles comme 7284 milles Nautiques et je dis 7284 Nautiques ou comme la partie Fire suppression qui ne n'éteint pas les moteurs mais l’incendie moteur, j'ai mal formulé j'espère que ça va aider les petits nouveaux Si vous avez des questions ou réclamations, je suis la Bonne Vision a+ Jean Baptiste
  3. Just to let you all know, guys. It's a SkyColors and environment pack i created from scratch. It's based on many observations and photos. Colors are not "invented" but taken directly from in-flight videos and photos. My custom shading/ lightning/ fog is included with the pack. It's designed to work with the new shader mod by Pe11e (highly recommended). Get it from here (for free): https://mega.nz/… ..and don't forget to give your opinion. I'll gladly modify any part of the day. previews: If you like it, i'll upload it here in the library. Best Regards, Vic
  4. Some fellow simmers have given up P3D after looking at the FS20 screenshots . No way that they can get the same level of immersion, they say ! I respect that , to each their own, and I am very much looking forward to Asobo's baby too but browsing old screenshots of mine,it seems to me that P3D with the right addons is no slouch in the immersion department ! Some examples below, all screenshots in P3Dv3 with ASN, Orbx sceneries, Pilot's mesh and A2A aircraft except if otherwise stated. Leaving Darrington Landing into a remote strip in PNG Ofu (OrbX Pago Pago scenery) Eastern France (I think) Propiano (France - Corsica) - Scenery by me including the city and river, over OLC EU Leaving Riverside Ca Flying Milviz F-100 over Indonesia Global Suite and Scenery Tech Indo-Pacific LC map
  5. PILOT's site indicates that they are nearing the digital release of their Next Generation 1-m mesh. I currently have FS Global Ultimate 5-m mesh, and was wondering if anyone who has upgraded saw any rendering or performance benefit? My two main questions are: 1. Will my sim performance be better with Next Generation over Ultimate? PILOT's site claims that NG uses "New algorithms for better data use and loading times. Less size and more detail nevertheless!" 2. Did you have any problems running Orbx and NG together that you didn't have with Ultimate? I've experienced very little issue running Ultimate and Orbx together when used in conjunction with the FTX AEC configuration tool. PILOT's claims that NG is compatible with FTX products.
  6. Can't seem to get this G1000 licensed appropriately. Have started the sim as administrator and can't seem to get the g1000 operations. Keeps saying "elevated license required" on the PFD and MFD keeps saying its initializing. I have run out of registrations thinking that might be the issue. Any help would be appreciated. AG
  7. http://prntscr.com/gi96vb when im instal the ivap on p3dv3 i get this meseg and when i run the sim i get fataerror how can i fix it? thx
  8. Another shot at it (pun not intended). I do believe that FS20 is going to be another big step into the right direction but I do not agree with those discarding P3D as a bland sim. We don't start from nothing, P3D is already recreating rather nicely some landscapes. Eastern France/ Germany border region OLC EU. The landclass is not so bad, hey ? a closer look Alaska (we still to have any Alaska shots from FS20 btw, just sayin') PNG

  10. Hi all, I've tried to install the qualitywings 757 v1.3 in p3d by copying and pasting all the files of the 757 from fsx to my p3d folder. But I when I load up the airplane everything works except for the fmc and the screens (they're all black). Does someone knows a solution for this? Thanks in advance!
  11. Can someone tell me if there are good payware for the following airports that work with P3dV3? I know some of these are out but I am not sure if they are working with V3. I thought I'd ask before buying. KDCA, KLGA, KEWR, KLAX, KLAS, KMCI, KMSP, KRSW, KIAH
  12. Hey guys! Yesterday I bought Chase Plane from FSFX and I have a Problem when I change my "programmed" views with the hotkeys from Chaseplane. Everytime I press the Hotkey that changes my view I have programmed in Chase Plane my whole screen flickers white (for about a second). I don't know what the Problem is, because I use the "normal" 1,2,3... keys on my keyboard (not from the numpad). P3D does not use them. The Support team of Chase Plane does not know that issue so I thought maybe someone of you has the same problem I use P3D v3, Chase Plane, some Addon Airports and ORBX. I do not use any shader and HDR is deactivated Thanks in advance - Alex
