PBR and floating objects

According to discussions in other forums and the fact that more an more PBR airports are published, is it true that LM is working on a hotfix which addresses the issue of "floating airport objects" at certain situations?

Re: PBR and Antialiasing quality

I have this issue as well. I thought updating to 4.5 would fix the issue but no luck. I am using the newest NVIDIA drivers and don't have any shader addons installed. The PMDG 747 looks terrible from the outside, but the updated FS Labs A320 looks fine. Anyone have any ideas on what could be causin...

Re: Frame issues in Prepar3D v4.5

My observation: FPS loss occurs predominantly in areas with high/detailed scenery objects (not autogen). A "good" example are ORBX regions in which more detailed scenery (airports) are in close distance. In this case I observe about 30-40% fps decrease, depending on "Scenery Complexity" settings. It...

Re: Frame issues in Prepar3D v4.5

last observation .... the top lod slider that I normally have set mid way (High) used to have a large impact on framerate and mem usage when set to Ultra vs high vs medium. This is no longer the case, flying in central Scotland on approach to UK2000 airports I get 16FPS (4.4 I had 30), moving LOD u...

Re: Ai aircraft lack intelligence

The availability of decent AI aircraft/airlines and flight plans for P3Dv4 has reached an impressive level in recent times and an overhaul of the ai engine of P3D is urgently needed imo. If I may add some points which should be improved: -Correct (intelligent) usage of taxiways according to airport ...

P3Dv4.4 hangs at 99%

... this happens during flight when I make essential changes via graphics menu (like resolution, autogen distance, etc. ) and P3D has to reload the scenery. When it reaches 99% (reloading ai traffic) the sim hangs. The only way out is : CTRL+ALT+DEL to reach the Task Manager and stop P3D manually. I...

Re: 4.2: SimConnect window doesn't stay on screen - FSUIPC5

Clear answer is needed. Either it is caused by FSUIPC, then we have to wait for Pete Dowson, or it is caused by simconnect, then LM should provide a patch asap.

Massive FPS Loss when using menu rar

I have a decent frame rate (33 fps, locked at 33 fps) but as soon as I choose sth from he menu bar, open it and go back to the flight (without having changed anything!) frame rate goes down to 22 and remains there. When I shut down p3d and reopen the flight situation I have again 33 fps which go dow...

Re: [P3D V3.4] Issue : At night, layers in the sky

I have realized that too (using v3.49). Not sure if it was so distinct in former versions.

Re: new nvidia 372.70 and p3D

Nvidia Inspector CTD happens due to Win10 (anniversary) update not because of new Driver. Try an older NI version (download from Guru3D) and don't update NI when it asks for it.

Re: Config Sets - Bug Report

I use GUI within P3D: -->Options-->Settings, in "Display Gobal Settings" I choose a profile either "01_DEFAULT" or "02_MODERATE", which I had saved before via GUI (see my post above). Then I press "ok". No 3rd party involved. When I switch between those pre-de...

Re: Config Sets - Bug Report

Yes I am talking from prepar3d.cfg. If I am only changing AI settings all is fine, it only happens when I change it along with other changes like autogen, shadows, ... . I guess it is the sum of changes. One or maybe two changes alone would not make trouble, but when more, P3D hangs (no CTD).

Config Sets - Bug Report

I am using different cfg sets which I named DEFAULT, MODERATE and LOW which I load according to scenery/aircraft demands. Since the newest version (3.3.5) when I change, let's say from DEFAULT to MODERATE, then P3D always hangs during reload at about 92% when loading ai traffic. Only way out is to s...
