VAS always above 3000mb

Postby CptMalteP » Fri Sep 16, 2016 7:24 am

Hi there,

I just installed P3D v3.3 on my new Computer(GTX1070,i7 6700k,16GB Ram,1TB SSD, Win 10 64bit) and my VAS usage is just abnormally high. When I fly the only add-ons activated are: ORBX Global+Vector+OpenLC NA+The departure and arrival airport, ORBX TreesHD, AS16+ASCA+REX4 and I primarily fly the PMDG NGX or the Aerosoft Airbus. When I load up the game I already have about 80% of my VAS in use...On my old computer I never had this problem with the same add ons except for OpenLC NA. Hyperthreading is on. I already tried it with HT off but it doesnt seem to change anything. Traffic is completly turned off and my Graphics Settings are not turned up to the maximum. Has anybody an Idea why I still get OOM Errors so fast? Mostly in the middle of the flight.
Thanks in advance

With all of those add-ons, that VAS usage seems completely normal. What airport sceneries are you using and what are your settings? Can you complete any flight? How long can you fly for? What AM are you using?

I have a very similar system, setup and add ons. I have constant OOM issues. I cannot complete a flight unless it is to a non add-on airport.

I wish there was a solution!!

Well, I also use all of those add-ons as well as UT2 with well over a hundred aircraft. I have completed a number of flights without OoMs so if you provide answers to the questions I asked I may be able to find a solution for you.

Hey all,

This may sound silly, but delete your camera.cfg file and see if that helps. There have been some issues on other threads with memory that are getting resolved this way. It seems to have to do with the new VR system, but we are investigating.

I had a little of the same problems with almost the same addon.
Solution that worked for me was to increase to 32 mb RAM.
After that no problem.
