Re: Need Advice On GPU Speed Versus GPU Ram

You need at least 8 GB of VRAM to render high resolution terrain textures so it depends on how important this would be to you. For me very important but it was within my budget constraints, also important. Thanks alot Dan. That's exactly the information I was looking for. I just needed to know that...

Re: Need Advice On GPU Speed Versus GPU Ram

Take a look at the EVGA GTX1660ti, it performs as well as the RTX2070 at half the price. Thanks, I will look into the EVGA GTX 1660ti Ed EDIT: The 1660ti looks like it does perform as well as the 2070, however it put's me in the same predicament. 6GB of GDDR 6 versus 8GB GDDR6 on the 2070. How valu...

What I would like to know is what would be more advantageous to P3Dv4,faster GPU speed or a little less speed but more memory. I'm...

Re: Black Water Textures

Hi Rob, They happen once Orbx Global is installed. I've fixed the issue by disabling Winter Ice textures in the Orbx config. Orbx feels it's an issue with P3DV4. The problem with this fix is that now there are no frozen lakes in winter etc.. I'm enclosing a link t the issue and the fix I used. It se...

Black Water Textures - ORBX

Hi All,

Can someone tell me if the black water texture error has been fixed in the latest update? (4.5) If not, then I'll only update the client rather than the scenery as well.

Thanks,

Re: Offset Runways

Hi, No problem, I'll have a look at that scenery as well, Vancouver is one of two airports I've flown from in Canada and is where I did one of my test flights from in the 737NG simulator - the visit to Canada wasn't planned :( The reason I was at Vancouver? It was 9/11 , I was on my way to KSFO wit...

Re: Offset Runways

Thanks Steve,

I'll install and run that program. I've installed FSDT CYVR and with that scenery there is no problem with the runways. I still need to fix CYYJ, maybe others, so thanks for the post.

Re: Offset Runways

Hi Dan, Yes Localizer centered, APP mode set, LOC and GS captured. I had to break off the beam at 500 feet and steer left to find the centerline. 26L is fine. 26R is off by a degree..maybe more. Same with 27 at CYYJ. Perhaps it's my setup but I haven't experienced this at any other airports so far. ...

Offset Runways

Hi, Have recently come across two runways that are offset by at least a degree. This means when shooting the ILS on these runways your aircraft will touch down in the grass 50 feet to the right of the runway. The runways in question are RWY 26R CYVR and RWY 27 CYYJ. I haven't tried their reciprocals...

Random zoom in

Hello Everyone, Using P3DV4.3. I've been trying to track down this zoom issue. P3D will randomly zoom in. I usually have it set to 1.00. Sometimes while going through cockpit prep the sim will start zooming in. This just started about a month ago. Last night it happened while on approach. This indee...

Re: Logbook

Thanks for the Logbook Dan.

Very nice utility. I have the commercial version for Steam but this is nice to have for P3D4.

Re: P3D FPS Leak??

I've found a work around for FPS drain when minimizing the sim to the task bar. By pausing the sim before minimizing, there is no loss of FPS.
