Hello everyone, I've been tweaking my P3d v5 settings to see what makes the sim tick. Unlike in v4, v5 makes very heavy use of VRAM, which is good! However, I and a few others have noticed that it's rather easy to crash the sim by going over the memory limit. With all the ORBX products installed, sitting at FlyTampa EKCH V2, I easily hit the VRAM limit with my RTX 2080 when sat in a default A/C. Bear in mind that most of my sliders are one notch away from the maximum position. I just wanted to let you know so that you're prepared for this possible issue ahead of the FSLabs v5 installers coming out. So far I have found that the two biggest VRAM hogs are Advanced Atmospherics (TrueSky Beta) and Texture Resolution. Just look at the attached screenshots taken at Copenhagen and see how quickly the VRAM usage increases as you choose a higher texture resolution. You can easily save about 600MB just by choosing High instead of Ultra, and both look absolutely fantastic when viewed up close, let alone from the cockpit or high up above the ground. LM are aware of the issue of high VRAM usage and are looking for ways to avoid hitting the memory limit. Bear in mind also that I'm intentionally pushing the sim and your mileage will definitely vary. I just assumed that most of us who are invested in the FSLabs busses will be using some high quality add-ons alongside it. Cheers, Louis texture_res.zip
