  1. (EDIT: This guide was originally posted in the xEnviro club but is moved here since it can help everyone.) Our support team has some advice to test out to gain more fps with xEnviro and X-Plane in general. This example is tested on a an 8-year old i7-4790K @ 4.4GHz and a first-generation GTX1080 on a 2560x1440 monitor (2K). Here are the settings used on this machine: Remove Nvidia Inspector First, get rid of nVidia Inspector. Everything you need is in the default Settings menu for nVidia drivers. The Inspector was causing some people problems. Ortho tips If you use ortho, be

  3. Version 1.01


    A hotfix for the deep winter crash to desktop issue on first release. If you have downloaded the scenery from the store but don't want to do that again to fix the scenery crashing when using deep winter you can use this hotfix. Copy and replace the provided Library.txt file in your Scenery airport folder: .../X-Plane11/Custom Scenery/CYHZ - Halifax Stanfield 02 - Airport
  4. Send me a PM with the new name you want. I'll get to it as soon as I can
  5. Spherical buffer = Perf upgrade nr 2 This update is basically another performance update. This was one of the 5 performance paths we had in the 1.14 update plans. We did not implement it then since it will take us at least a month to implement and test if it even works in the X-Plane environment. We decided to add it later so we wouldn't delay 1.14 longer than necessary. Fingers crossed that we're not in a dead end. The reward will be great if it works and so far it looks promising! First ever image of Spherical Buffer in X-Plane. And in any sim as far as I am aware.. Don't quot
  6. xEnviro 1.16 This is a xPlane 11.51 compatibility hotfix. Download here
  7. UPDATE ON 11.51 hotfix: We have the fix, still ironing other minor bugs that appeared alongside - and testing hotfix beta. I expect it to be out while still writing 2020. Until then You can still use xEnviro in OpenGL Server update today from 12:00 zulu We will be updating the servers one by one today so downtime can be an issue. This should not last for longer than 2-4 hours. (Image from beta tester in hotfix test)
  8. IMPORTANT AS LAMINAR NOW HAS UPDATED TO 11.51 WE WILL GET TO WORK ON OUR UPDATE FOR IT AND HAVE IT OUT ASAP. IF YOU WANT TO USE XE UNTIL THEN, DON'T UPDATE OR USE OPENGL VERSION! (Change to opengl by unticking vulkan option in graphics settings in X-Plane). Just be careful updating to 11.51, Several reports on 11.51r1 crashing their sim on load.
  9. It's not compatible wit VULKAN version of 11.51 (which just released) We are working on that. In the meantime you can use the OpenGL version.
  10. Because you're on X-Plane beta. Get off beta if you don't know what a beta is and how to relate to the fact that you are on beta.
  11. They aren't wrong. We have tested and adjusted this for some time and they are 98% within margin of error. If they were completely off we would have been flooded with tickets. Which we're not. If you find winds that are "completely wrong" send a thorough report with your findings to support on xenviro.net. You won't get support here.
  12. Yes! Just like almost every other finding by these 3rd party virus apps - it's another false positive. Today the need for a 3rd party virus app is basically non existing. Unless you visit shady sites or download pirate ware - the windows antivirus is more than enough.
  13. xEnviro does not work on X-Plane beta! THIS IS A GENERAL RULE! IF YOU EXPERIENCE PROBLEMS, REVERT TO THE LATEST STABLE RELEASE! (UNTICK THE BETA BOX IN YOUR X-PLANE INSTALLER) If you're a beta jockey, you should know this so it should not have been necessary to tell you all this... (and if you didn't know and are on beta --> stop using beta versions!) xEnviro does not and will never be updated for X-Plane beta releases. X-Plane 11.51rc1 litterally means release candidate 1. In effect it is still in beta (but closing in on release). How many candidates we see before release, we
  14. EDIT: This does NOT work with 11.51 beta verisions! Revert back to latest stable version of X-Plane Some antivirus programs are giving a false positive. Safe to ignore. xEnviro is now on version 1.15 1.15 Goal #01: Vulkan compability - done This is the "Vulkan update" to make xEnviro compatible with the Vulkan version of X-Plane 11. It should be updated in your store - if not, download it here. I'll start off with saying that many of the known issues that we had in 1.14 still persist. This is because we want to get the Vulkan conversion out as
  15. I know I have been absent of late but - better late than sorry? So, what's new? We're in Beta Of course Laminar managed to do some weird choices when they went for Vulkan so our transition has taken a bit longer than we expected. So nothing new there I guess But we're over that minor hurdle now and steaming ahead in beta versions that are chewed on by our beta testers. We'll see how fast we can straighten 1.15 out but I want to remind you all of one huge item: Seasons will be gone The way we draw seasons in X-Plane and the way to make them dynamic is no longer ava
  16. I have never had it delete my entire folder when deleting the dropped junction - but then again I use junctions and not the symlink option. And if it deleted itself you should be able to restore it all from the Recycle Bin.. As long as you treat symlink / junction as an actual folder you are fine. Too bad you deleted your entire folder but symlink is just a way for your system to trick itself to believe the folder is in another location than where it really is. And it works flawlessly within the entire operating system. Including explorer. Only problem can be with programs that don't allo

  18. Anyone who tells me that Brazil is a small country can go and treat themselves with a stick of dodo in their dada. Well, no one has told me that though. Literally every one I have talked to told me I'm crazy to even consider flying these legs over Brazil without an autopilot. I tend to agree. But all of that is behind me now.. We have now landed on a drag strip not far from Johan Adolf Pengel International Airport in Suriname. It's close to Owos Ontspannings Oord. (OwO !! this is a sign) A swimming Facility in Powakka that Wilma has been talking about since we left French Guyana. Oh,
  19. So uplifting to just be ignored in what I have told everyone in every release announcement and along the way for every progress update.... sigh, why do we even bother sometimes.. 1.15 progress update so far What is 1.15 all about? Vulkan Timeline No, Vulkan won't take another year. In fact we're already in Vukan - just need to adapt all the elements and get things right. How long it will take is uncertain and as usual I won't give any ETA's. But if you think that Vulkan is the savior of all fps - when Vulkan primarily is a CPU related gain and xEnviro is entirel
  20. We're not done. We're just getting started.
  21. Yesterday could have been a seriously bad day. Not for me, but for George the accountant. I had a great takeoff in the morning sun from Maraba and followed the rivers north. On the way I Met up with some friends I got to know the night before, in town, that followed me along in their little beauties. When we did some close formation flying one of my new found friends asked me if George had cancelled his trip. I turned around and realized that I had left him behind.. A quick turnaround and backtracking to Macapa took me about an hour and a half. I landed as quickly as I could and hurr
  22. So... not that long ago I purchased an aircraft ( in FSEconomy ). I had finally saved up enough money and was looking for aircraft online one night. I found the cheapest C152 in existence.. On paper it looked good. Located in Iran and with minimal usage for its age. Probably a barn find that got restored and now the owner got bored with it. The aircraft looked clean and the Lycoming 0235-N2C had very low hours and had also recently been overhauled by its current owner Carlos Juego Sucio who apparently was a renowned aircraft mechanic. Obviously a foreigner making a good living in Iran.
  23. This is mentioned in the release announcements as part of known issues.
