Prepar3D 5.2 online

incl. some major fixes needed for AIGTC and improved night visuals with PBR on our Models. For AILRP I am sure Simbol will make use of the new effect system as well ;)

Code: [Select]
Updated ISimObject AI logic.
Good for us? See no other possible AI related things.

Cool, and I just reinstalled 5.1 HF1 from scratch :groan:

Oh well, might as well bite the bullet and reinstall once more :D

 A full P3d uninstall/reinstall should take under 30 minutes. It's not like it used to be.

It takes more time to download it than to install it.

AIG AI is having a massive perf hit in 5.2.

In 5.1, I was getting 26+ FPS with 50 AIG aircraft at FlyTampa's KLAS. I use AI Companion to limit traffic.

Now, in 5.2, I'm getting *7* FPS with the same number of AI. If I turn off AI, my fps goes to 40+.

Anyone else seeing this?

I have installed all my AI by hand and with P3D v5.2 my framerates are all over the place! I was at Islandsim's Salt Lake City and while taxing around my frames were as low as 3 and as high as 55!

1) Perform a full reinstall (Client, Content, Scenery)
2) Delete Generated Files (via batch file)
3) Disable all other addons
4) Start P3Dv5 again

I suspect I may need to do a complete reinstall (cursed addon scenery that insist on placing files in the default folders, otherwise it would be quick and easy), as while the FPS aren't too terrible even with my low amounts of AI presently, it's taking absolutely forever to load scenery textures ::confused::

I'm seeing reports that third party shaders (ie. EnvShade etc.) is behind a large part of the fps hit. I'll reinstall this afternoon/evening and report back.

Installed 5.2 and I'm very impressed, so I think it is time now to give 4.5 the final rest and take all my remaining addons and the whole AI setup into the next generation. But I need at least half of my vacation for this  :D

Interested to hear the overall opinion on 5.2 and how it fairs vs 5.1
