Re: Add-on.xml seems problematic for my sceneries

Hi Tom: I use the add-on.xml method for all of my scenery addons and with only a few exceptions, I combine all products by developer such that all FSDT locations are in one, all FlyTampa in another one, etc. The texture issue remains a puzzle for me as well. I simply exclude all of the texture entri...

Re: P3D Crash when sitting in aircraft.

Click on the Windows start button and type "problem" without the quotes and select View all Problem Reports. If there are P3D reports pay attention to what the faulting module is because that gives you a clue and something to enter into the Google machine to look for possible hints.

Re: RAM frequency vs size (and monitor question)

In my opinion, your CPU is a major bottleneck and there is little to be gained without addressing this. I have a 4790K but it is relegated to being my home book keeping machine, and flight sim map reader and flight planner. I have a build now that I am using for flight simulation with 8700K 4.8 GHz ...

Re: Asset Packs?

Everything you see in a default airport, such as taxi signs, wind socks etc., are generic models accessible to you depending on what you are using to create an airport. I recommend you refer to the Learning Center > SDK > World > Scenery > Facility Data.

Re: Re Install Scenery Component:Deactivation needed?

You will need to uninstall prior version of scenery before installing new. You might want to first check the scenery installer to see if their is a repair option. Finally, reinstalling software is the least preferred method of troubleshooting..... it usually means you are out of ideas. What specific...

Re: Installation of scenery

I assume you installed the addon scenery with the addon installer?
Did you look a the P3D Addon list?
Did you select that location and load an aircraft there and was it a default airport or does it appear as you expect for the addon?

Re: freeze and memory

This 'freeze' or long frame could be related to loading scenery objects, but this will also occur while going straight ahead and not turning. I don't know enough about your issue to be of much help but just wanted to assure you it has nothing to do with loading scenery into memory. Your memory is fi...

If your system doesn't meet or exceed minimum system requirements I'm not sure what kind of answer you expect.

Re: Aircraft not aligning to gates

That is an issue with DD Seattle, and a pretty common problem with his products. The best thing you can do is complain to them.

Re: Slew Control on HOTAS WARTHOG

I have most of my Warthog switches/buttons programmed directly in P3D.... never had a problem. Also, I go through the default key command assignments in slew mode and delete everything but the few actual keyboard keys I use. I found it best to remove all controller inputs from the slew mode. The onl...

Re: Move P3D to a new SSD ?

Thanks to your answer I just bought a Samsung Evo 850 SSD of 1 To, it is quite good from what I read. I will then install all my P3D stuff on it. Do you recommend keeping the OS on the nVME ? Does P3D manages well the fact of not being on the same drive as the OS and drivers ? Keep the OS on the NV...

Re: Wind problem

This is probably by design. The Jeppesen ESSA General Briefing (10-1P1) gives as a restriction to large aircraft: RWY01L/19R will be used for take-off and landing.

Re: Move P3D to a new SSD ?

In normal use, the faster device speeds translates to faster loading times but one P3D is running there is no noticeable impact due to the large amount of scenery cache that is used in the program. Moving P3D from one drive to another requires that you must uninstall P3D first then reinstall to new ...
