  1. Thanks for the advice @Smudger! I tried this several times and when deactivating Flytampa nothing happens. When I remove the scenery from my computer, True earth functions normally and perfect! But perhaps there members that are able to fly with EHAM from Flytampa and TE NL without problems. I only read topics about the elevation issues. Nothing mentioned about blurry textures.
  2. Dear, Since a few months I am trying to solve my blurry textures. Tried all kind of things like Nvidia inspector, setting tweaking. I also tried to migrate the scenery again in FTX central, remove P3dv4 config files, clear caches, etc. After all software changes, I also wanted to upgrade my computer to achieve a better FPS. With the recommendation of Doug Sawatzky I have upgraded my processor to a AMD Ryzen 7 3700X. With the new processor I have much better FPS now, but still no luck with the blurry textures (see photos). As soon as I takeoff, (in the Netherlands) the ground textures are blurry. When I pause the simulator it takes more than 2 minutes to load and then everything is ok. After flying another minute, the ground textures are blurry again. I also use flytampa Schiphol maybe that there is a problem? It looks like only above the Netherlands the problem exists (true earth), not above Europe with the EU LC, global and vector addons. Computer specs: AMD Ryzen 7 3700X Asrock Fatality X370 k4 GTX1080 ti Samsung 850 EVO SSD Please, can anyone help me? Which information do I need to share, etc.?
  3. @Doug Sawatzky Thanks! Will try this. I also send you a PM (Ryzen 7 CPU use). @Traveller I tried to overclock but I only gain max. 3850 MHz. speed and an FPS increase of 2 to 3 FPS. So my question remains; will there be a noticable FPS increase with a next gen processor, like the Ryzen 7, 3800X (a painfull 420 EUR or 470 USD!).
  4. @Traveller & @W2DR Thanks for the advice, as I already thought, I will search for a better CPU; @Mikelab6 Traffic settings are: 50% airlines, 25 general aviation, 35 cars, 25 boats and leisure. @Doug Sawatzky You mean the shadow quality or both? What do you suggest?
  5. Dear, I have a hardware related question. Hopefully someone can help me, since ORBX products are causing FPS decrease on my machine (especially True Earth NL). Recently I upgraded from a GTX1060 to a GTX1080 (used). I was expecting an increase on average FPS after reading several benchmarks and forums. Within the area of Amsterdam (use of Global, Vector, Open LC EU and True Earth NL) the average FPS is 12 with lower limit of 8 and upper limit of 15. I have done a lot of research into software changes and mods, so the chance of software related issues is minimal (.cfg mods, Nvidia inspector, settings optimizing,). Still any recommendations are more than welcome (see attached pictures for settings in P3DV4 and attached .cfg file). Several benchmarks indicated that it was possible to increase FPS by 33% to upgrade to the GTX1080, but I am expecting that other hardware is limiting the performances. My CPU, a Ryzen 5 1600X, is indicating an average load of 89-95% (Lasso process performance measurements), when running P3DV4 (overclocked to 3.8 stable), so I think the CPU is not the bottleneck (but maybe I am wrong). Can someone (who has way more experience) help me in searching the bottleneck? I also read that the Intel processors are better for P3DV4 performance, but I have a AMD processor build computer (motherboard with AM4 socket). The problem that I face right now is that I don't know how to research were my bottlenecks are and whether there is software to support me. Next to this, I don't want to spend more money without being sure there is an upgrade in FPS performance. My systems specs: - AMD Ryzen 5, 1600X (water cooled); - Asrock X370 K4 gaming motherboard (can be used to upgrade to the newest AMD processor AM4 socket); - 16 gb. Corsair LPX8 DDR4 16gb RAM 2400 MHz; - STRIX GTX1080 DDR5 8gb.; Best regards, Nils Prepar3D.cfg
  6. All, No support needed anymore! I found somewhere an old forum tip of FSX to delete the shades folder in the roaming map and also the cfg file at the same time and then start the application. Everything is fixed now!
  7. Dear, Unfortunately I am experiencing blurry textures for P3DV 4.5 for True Earth Netherlands (TE NL) (see pictures p3dv4 te nl). Since I installed TE NL, the textures became blurry like in the pictures. Also my FPS drops to max. 10-15. I am using FlyTampa EHAM and ORBX Global, Vector, Open Europe LC and TE NL. Last weekend I installed a SSD to run P3DV4 faster and directly upgraded to 4.5. Now after installing all ORBX add ons and EHAM of FlyTampa I have this situation. Before the clean install on the new SSD, TE NL was beautiful and really crisp running with easily 20 fps (see pictures BEFORE 1 and 2) Can you help me with any support? I have deleted the prepar3d config file several times, reinstalled TE NL, I have changed my TEXTURE_MAX_LOAD to 4096, I have changed several settings in World, nothing solves the issue. Referring to my specs, I should be able to run better performances. My system specs: AMD Ryzen 1600X 3.6 gHZ, 3.9 Max gHZ.

  8. Thank you Nick for the quick reply! The strange thing is that P3dv4 is running without problems.
  9. Best all, I recently unistalled a lot of additional programs and run through various registry cleaners for windows. Now as I start FTX central 3, the program is asking me to select a Sim, while I can't select anything. I have read something about a registry fix for FSX. Is there something I can do for P3DV4? I suspect it has something to do with registry faults. I own ORBX: - global base - global vector - global open LC Europe - NL true earth Hopefully someone can help. Best regards, Nils
