SIM Director - is there a fix planned or being worked on

Post by CoastalDriver »

I am running P3DV5.1.12 Professional with new hardware Win10v2004 with lated intel chipset, 32GB RAM, MSI motherboard and NVIDIA RTX2070 Super (8GB).

I cannot get Sim Director to load. I have seen it go to 29%, 57%, 87% and then hang the program as if there is a buffer overrun, once this occurs the P3D menu a program is unresponsive to any commands and can only be shut down by CTL+C or task manager.

I restrict model addons to 6 with the stock vehicles. All are installed via the ADDON xml method.

Scenery is limited to ORBX LC for most of the world but few addon airports - there a few simple addon airports all scenery is installed on a separate drive and accessed via the scenery config menu settings.

No mods to chip, motherboard or GPU all use recommened settings only.

The sim works fine in fact very well. But I cannot get SIM Director to work at all.

I note many many users have the same issues about load times and freezing.

Fix on the way?

I forgot to mention a check of the CPU shows it running at 98-100% when this is happens.

I note that there are multiple threads all with the same problem of Sim Director hanging or not loading. Is there any possibility of a response or advice as how to fix this or is LM and the P3D working on the issue. However the program is indexing objects or files seems to be the core problem.

Note - When I ran FSX there was a 32 bit program called Instant Scenery that could do this without any problems at all and it only took a few minutes to find and indexing all the relevant files for you to access in sim. So it is not that hard guys!
