Wake and Wave adjustments for P3D V3.1 users

P3D V3.1 introduced a new SDK FX item called "Ground Decal" (Ground Decal = 1) ... this should be used in most situations where an existing FX uses "Ground Normal" (3rd party ship wakes and/or wave files). You can apply the Ground Decal = 1 to any other FX that uses Ground Normal ... for example any...

Re: v1.4 snow drifts not working bug in configurator

Think I narrowed the problem down, the animations will sometimes just stop or they will not start. I can see where the animations attempt to start as the image "freezes" at/around taxi-way K2 up near the RWY 12. To get the animations to restart, I moved to another gate. However, after a few minutes ...

Re: v1.4 snow drifts not working bug in configurator

I managed to get the drifts to show, seems to be triggered by specific weather conditions ... I think? But I can't seem to consistently get the snow drifts to occur? Any hints?

Cheers, Rob.

v1.4 snow drifts not working bug in configurator

I noticed I wasn't getting any snow drifts with the option checked (getting them at Montreal so I know they work in concept) ... then I noticed the mouse over description test was incorrect also (duplicate of "Apron light effects"). The snowdrift.bgl is there (not set to .OFF) so obviously something...

I'm in the same boat also, hopefully I'll get a response from support ... but it is the holiday season ...

Corfu SpeedTrees for P3D V3 is amazing!! Thank you!

Wow, it's rare that developers support P3D V3 exclusive features, so a big thank you. Corfu's details are amazing and no FPS issues, very very smooth ... not a single stutter at very extremely graphics settings in 4K.

Plan to do a video this week.

A big thank you FlyTampa dev team.

Cheers, Rob.

Re: OOMs in P3D v2.5 12945

QUICK UPDATE: I installed Copenhagen on another test PC (P3D v2.5 12945) that has NO other add-ons installed. I did NOT make any changes to Copenhagen files. Ran the same test and I did NOT see any huge VAS consumption. So it's very possible there is some conflict with Orbx FTX Global, Vector, or Op...

OOMs in P3D v2.5 12945

I'm trying to figure out which .BGL is triggering an OOM ... VAS usage starts at 940MB free, then drops very rapidly (within seconds) down in 200MB decrements until an OOM. The only things active are Orbx FTX Global and MT6 ... nothing else. Here is a video showing the location (which is ALWAYS the ...

Hi Emilios, I seem to be having a few issues with P3D v2.5 (12944) ... 1. "3D Grass" not checked, I'm still seeing "3D Grass". 2.
