  1. Got them all for XP. Unfortunately the rest of it lets down XP. And... performance is not similar to P3D.
  2. Well I wasn't aware of the discount. I may try one area. Or may wait a month until it's 75 percent ........
  3. I note there IS a demo for X plane. Any chance of one for P3D in the UK ? Or..... can we enjoy a 50 percent discount before FS2020 is released ? .....Got a feeling FS2020 will be a slooooow burner for a looooong time, and although I will be getting it, I will be enjoying my aircraft and regions + custom airports, in P3D, for some time to come ! Cheers.
  4. Please allow us to switch off all that traffic behind the terminals or it will be unusable with TrueEarth.
  5. Yes please..... and please go easy on the PBR, it's a killer in X-plane close to the terminal buildings.
  6. May I interject on what may be a related issue. I notice you refer to your Auto Boost not working as it should on your CPU. You may benefit from looking into that as an independent issue. It may be causing issues. I have my 7700k set at 4.5 on all cores permanently. Makes little difference to temps or power consumption. But it makes the entire system more stable, and there is no bouncing up and down. When I do have auto boost set, however, it does go to the full turbo of 4.5 and stays there while P3D is running. The fact yours is not even reaching its advertised speed would be a cause for concern for me. It could just be setup incorrectly in the bios or it could be more sinister, such as a power supply issue. Sorry to butt in, but it may be wise to investigate that and get your system 100 percent stable before looking at P3D settings.
  7. Some UK 3rd party airports may be a little too pale. (i.e. a lighter shade of green.) What I did in X plane, where this was the case, was to open the 12 or so .dds ground image files, in an editor, and increase saturation and contrast about 10 percent and re-save. The whole process takes less than an hour for an airport. The amount required may be different in P3D. Or it may not be required at all !
  8. Good to see some honesty. I too have the entirety of OrbX stuff in X plane, and considering expansion to the U.S. so I am seriously considering whether I NEED it all in P3D too. I may just stick with FTX in P3D and keep VFR flying (and of course Night !) for OrbX regions in X plane. Both platforms have their pros and cons I guess.
  9. And how was tge FPS performance compared to say FTX England ?
  10. It's nice to see some patience and uderstanding. I'm personally going to try and improve in this department as it is too easy to get frustrated in this hobby, and take it out on those attempting to improve it. I am very encouraged by OrbX's doggedness to improve things constantly, and the latest updates in TE for P3D are very pleasing. For the first time (outside X Plane), I am seriously considering acquiring another large M.2 drive, and purchasing this at the end of the month, for use in P3D. I also agree that using this particular scenery requires a judicious use of settings, and indeed selecting weather systems and aircraft that are appropriate for its intended use. Also, a simple, non-demanding VFR cloudscape doesn't require shadows, which apparently cause big hits. I will continue to use FTX for more complex airliners and cloudscapes, or even just OpenLC and Vectors, when running a 747 in and out of Heathrow. But it's great to have the choice ! Happy New Year OrbX.
  11. Except you may wish to swap between them. FTX is still good for airliners and seasons ! Better off, just using SimstarterBG and having different scenery libraries that can be activated at the press of a button.
  12. So is that what it took for Narvik ? That's done brilliantly for P3D, but it is tiny compared to Leeds, I guess.
  13. And please also, can we have the option to disable the Animated vehicles. If this together with disabling parked cars, stops a 1080 hitting 100% usage, it should put my minimum back to 30 fps. This should also be considered in all other Full PBR airports like Newcastle and Edinburgh..... and especially Leeds which I bought, then you may sell more. Thank you.
