    I'm working with a 3 year old system, 8gig RAM, 3.9ghz CPU, NVidia 650T1 w/2gig. I run Orbx Basic and Vector Basic, as well as the European LC, I have the other Regional Orbx products and many of the individual airports, none of which are installed, also I use the textures from REX Essentials+. In FSX most sliders are maxed, clouds are set to "Medium" and framerates (set to unlimited) hover in the 35 to 40 range. With that setup, the blurries are virtually non-existent, no stutters. . .looks and flies great. In P3D, I have Orbx setup exactly the same as FSX so ground textures are identical, although using the recent Shader Pack Config Tool adds some additional depth to the textures. As for the rest of the settings, water is off, Dynamic Reflections is off, 98% of the shadowing is off,...

    This is truly one enjoyable aircraft. I really like all the animations. Beyond opening doors, windows and bomb bay one can load and fire flares, remove the exhaust covers, and drop bombs. I just finished a flight and discovered I could automate the emergency war power setting. The internal lighting is great; however, it would be nice to be able to dim the gauge lighting a tad. And as already mentioned the external lighting is somewhat overwhelming, so I hope AH/JF can remedy that in a future update. Overall, job well done. :very_drunk:

    wombat666 replied to a thread Russia... in Racer's Paddock
    Sochi is one of the most soulless events on the calendar, just another 'Photo Opportunity' for the 'Poison Dwarf's' mate 'Vlad the Impaler'. While Dani was way to ambitious on lap one perhaps Sebastien needs to look back over some of his earlier races. Good to see both MacHondas in the top ten, and good to see Magnussen get the Renault-Renault toward the pointy end. Someone needs to take a very large sharp stick to the so-called 'Race Stewards', they're getting more and more penalty crazy with each event. And I'm looking to Nico keeping on with his current form, take the wins where he can and if needed settle for second place if he can't take victory. He looks the part, unlike his team mate!

    Good morning, Spurred on by the issues Robert John had with Fall Weiss that alerted me to corrections that needed to be made, I went through the 20th Fighter Group campaign and looked for similar problems. I found several issues, including aircraft naming problems, .dp misc data and panel issues, as well as missing weapons. These have all been corrected. I also took the opportunity to update the GSL work, to both remain current (Bordeaux, Brest) and to replace mission-based factories with permanent scenery to keep the mission size down. I also corrected mission 34, actually attacking the city of Tours (which has been built in GSL) rather than Angers, which has now been removed. ...

    Shadows was the cause. I turned all related to shadows off and fps jumped to 70fps+. I then added some minor increases and have it at 35 to 40fps. . .this includes increasing all autogen and mesh and texture resolutions to much higher numbers.

    I love those kind of shows...looks like a blast! I'm salivating just anticipating the one at Midway Regional in Texas. I got to fly a T-6 Texan and few years back Donna and I flew on a DC-3. Ted

    txnetcop replied to a thread Flt Sim for Windows 10 in Squawks!
    I didn't have any problems loading Gold to Win 10 but it did not run any faster than 30fps and that periodically. So I put my money down on STEAM FSX and LOVE IT! Faster because of the way in which is compiled and so far all my scenery and aircraft have loaded just fine. If you decide to make the plunge let me know. Ted

    Someone on forum said it was a hack! I wasn't sure exactly what he meant but he said for realism it was a waste of money... That is only second hand info I didn't buy it...waiting to see lots of reviews. Ted

    Actually Daube, the only item not set as you suggest in your list would be the shadow setting for Trees. . .I'll have to check on that one. Otherwise, my settings currently go along with what you've suggested with the Sim not able to produce much more than 16fps consistently. I flew FSX for several hours today and saw fps hold at around 25fps with most sliders maxed and unfortunately for P3D, as I move between the two Sims to gauge playability and appearance it begins to be rather difficult to tell them apart which doesn't bode well for P3D. When you have to turn off the things that make it look exceptional, then why bother?

    Hi C9G,

    Just wanted to say hi, and wish you a wonderful upcoming week. Next Friday, my sister Melissa (who lives in Indianapolis) is driving down here to my place. We will leave Saturday morning for Sanibel Island, Fl, to stay at a condo she has...until 7 Sept. Really looking forward to the trip. Besides us, we're taking her dog (Golden Doodle) Bella, and my Rottweiler, "Chief"....... Hugs. Peter
