Re: Strange shadow line on water KHQM-Orbx

Good you got it solved using Vector. Those terrain reflection bugs are present in P3D since v3, were mentioned several times by me and others both here and in the forums of the scenery developers and are just constantly ignored, no idea why. Probably because so many do not use terrain reflections an...

Re: Constant microstutters with good FPS in V5

This is definitely tied to ORBX. Once all of my ORBX scenery packages are disabled, the stutters are gone. I will reach out to them for further support. Same here. Mostly fluid, above heavy ORBX sceneries, a very noticable stutter every 3 seconds, utterly regular. I tried almost everything, differe...

Re: P3Dv5 and P3Dv5 HF1 missing tarmacs and GA parking

It is a known issue with v5 and devs are aware. However I never read anything about whether or not this will be addressed in an upcoming hotfix. Personally, I have no understanding why this was changed in comparison to v4.x anyway, there was certainly no need to do this...

Re: Aircraft.cfg for AI aircraft and P3D question

Ehm, did you once check how big an aircraft.cfg actually is? It is in kilobytes... Even with 10000 aircraft.cfg reduced by half in size, you might gain some lousy megabytes, certainly nothing that would change loading times by more than just a few seconds (if at all). So no, makes no sense at all. T...

Re: TrueSky only one "Theme" possible?

Ok, I got the answer in the HiFi forums: EA mode depiction is GLOBAL, meaning it depicts weather without "theme" features for variable wx shown. The same clouds will be shown out to the horizon with no variation at all. Now as you fly into an area with different weather, ASP3D will update the condit...

Re: IVAO MTL and very long P3D v5 load times

Any news from any dev on this issue? It is not restricted to IVAO MTL, as soon as you have many SimObjects, loading P3Dv5 simply takes forever. I use full AIG setup, Global AI Ships, some free GA AI traffic and I have about 50GB of AI models. Think about what this means if this bugged algorithm goes...

Re: TrueSky only one "Theme" possible?

Was very confused why i just see an infinite ocean of clouds when there should be a hole here and there That is not even the issue, as it could be like that in reality. What I meant is that you only have this or something else, always exactly the same looking weather until the far horizon. Then the...

TrueSky only one "Theme" possible?

Hi there, I wonder if TrueSky is capable of only showing one particular "theme" of the sky at once? I realized that whenever there is clear skies and you approach a weather front with clouds, the sky in the simulator only shows clear sky till the horizon until the plane is actually over the weather ...

Re: Autogen performance and Prepar3D v5

Autogen is not really performance heavy on my rig, if I turn off shadow options. As soon as I turn on "receive shadows", I loose some performance, if I turn on "cast shadows", performance is down the drain. The bigger issue is that it loads in visible patches while flying if you use a setting higher...

Re: Bugged terrain reflections... again.

Obviously again landed on the ignore list of the devs. Why? There is clearly something wrong, either in the sim or in the way scenery developers produce their sceneries, as it is not visible for all sceneries. However, also my support requests for the sceneries affected keep being ignored. What is t...

Re: Extreme wind shifts

We have to keep this thread up and running until one of the devs comments on this immersion killing bug. Unbelievable that it still not acknowledged or at least commented on. Hopefully HiFi finds a way around it, otherwise v5 will be of no use to me in the longer term.

Re: Terrain LOD switch

I always thought that P3D does anyway not accept any value above the maximal value possible to set via GUI? So I wonder what such a high LOD setting really does?

Re: Difference in FPS in VC and outside with TrueSky

The difference is gone now, since I've turned HT on.
THAT is a very interesting find, as I also suffer from huge FPS difference between VC and outside view already in the default R22, which has really not a complex VC. What CPU do you use?
