Orbx airports showing low FPS - bug

  • A few individuals noticed large drops in FPS at a few of the Orbx airports. I have confirmed this now as well. If any of you are seeing any FPS drops at any other airport please report it here so that we can better track down where the problem is.

    This bug was confirmed after todays small update.

  • Yes, for me Orbx Palm Springs has issues not just with performance, but with completely messed up geometry and animation.


    For instance, the thumb on my VR hands was going wild, and the stick in the R22 was moving back and forth on its own very fast. Huge blue columns / cones were being drawn from the VR hands into the sky. (Possibly all artifact of a bad performance issue I suppose).


    Combined with Oculus Asynchronous Time-warp making it feel like the world was melting, it was like I had taken a psychoactive substance. Quite enjoyed it 8/10 :)


    When I quit from Palm Springs, the VR hands were still broken with strange geometry being drawn from them and vertices missing, so I had to restart the sim.

  • Can confirm that Palm Springs shows the same symptoms of Magic Mushrooms use, as nickhod has reported above. Eagle Vail has the same problem, even though the causal factor in Eagle Vail is more likely cannabis, being Colorado 'n all....;-) Monterey and Innsbruck are all good, while every single windmill in True Earth Netherlands is now suspended 100 feet above ground and the rotorblades are free-floating well above the hubs. Plenty of good places to enjoy the Robbie in the meantime, so we'll just cut the devs some slack and it'll be all sorted out in due course. This R22 is addictive!!!

  • I tested most of the areas, orbx, Ipacs and freeware, only orbx airports seem impacted by the large drop of FPS, as well as the close areas, for example Aspen near Eagle Country.


    For TrueEarth Netherand the only problem seems to be the flying wind turbines



    May be there's a very small global drop of FPS, but difficult to be sure for the moment.

  • Oh no! My uncle visits tomorrow - glider pilot who spent a lot of time in the Netherlands looking forward to finding out what's so special about this mystery system I have. It took 3 months to set up the visit. I'd better give him a few glasses of wine before I put him in the cockpit.

  • I see no issues at Palm Springs.......

  • Seems fixed for me too, small 7.9mb update seemed to do the trick, thanks guys for putting in the time at the weekend.

  • I also recommend to delete your main.mcf file located in your documents\Aerofly FS 2 root folder. With the addition of the last update and the introduction of the R22 it's best to do this just to clear the cobwebs out.

    For all of you seeing this possible bug, please try this as well and report back if all is well.


    Thank you all for your assistance here. It helps us out a lot.

    Not necessary, things seem to be fixed.

    Everything back to normal, even the Netherland's wind turbines.

    Thanks for your reactivity.
