  1. SMP 4.6 still worse than default XP11 clouds

    Version 4 is already optimised for XP11 it has been for quite awhile.....
  2. SMP 4.6 still worse than default XP11 clouds

    Looking at the title my answer for you is you need to explore your rendering settings and the SMP UI to gain the performance you desire. Many customers are very happy with SMP in this reguard. Looking at the body of your post I get the feeling you are happier with the look of the default. All I can say to this is, we strive to being the best representation of weather to XP, many are extremely satisfied. Hopefully one day we can accommodate your expectations....
  3. Need lower res overcast

    Says you John, I'm the defense of XA nothing here is a secret and it's common practice to not issue refunds on digital goods. Any badmouthing at this point is by individuals who think the EULA doesn't apply to thier situation. Sorry but this is an intitled attitude. On my end, I'm sorry you didn't have a positive experience with our product. We're constantly updating and improving our offering based on customer feedback.....My hope is you can revisit our offering in the future and enjoy what we've brought to X-Plane.
  4. How to get an solid overcast for IFR?

    News to us I'm not in front of my of can you post some screenies?
  5. Sharp-cut cloud

    Well we do employ 600 individuals who's job is to perfect SMP for the masses.....lol I'm serious though why be down on us for creating content for X-Plane? Why go after a group of 2 individuals who's goal is to advance our hobby? You took initiative to inject your artistic license into SMP and I think it looks nice...You have my support 100% Why hold onto it? This leads me to think you have no desire to do anything positive, but only to serve your ego..... Lemme be blunt with ya buddy, nobody thinks you're elite......Cloud textures are a small part of the overall engine that is SMP....... Grandstanding on a mediocre topic....tisk tisk tisk
  6. Sharp-cut cloud

    Huh well you got us......Were part of a huge cloud clipping conspiracy.... There were a few edits i made to try and quell clipping in the cloud files, either 1. Somehow it didn't make it into the update or 2. I missed a few of them Your edits look really nice, it's absolutely in good form to share those to the community if you feel so inclined......You got my support....
  7. Would be great to avoid this situation

    I see, when I developed the cloudatlas.tga there was a ton of time spent trying to limit the amount of repeating textures.... 90-95% of the time I think I did a decent job..... My advice would be try either quick or alternate the HD sets and see what one you like more. Or since you seem to be on the artistic side try creating your own. Maybe you'll hit on something I couldn't. Look at the cloudatlas.tga's in the resource folder of silverlining..... OR get a ppl and hire a chase plane to take photographs LOL Problem is until we can get ray casting with decent performance there will always be a limited set of images complied using an algorythim to present clouds. I'm not aware of any other Flight Sim third party or default cloud set that doesn't have this limitation.....

    Right by the aircraft?
  9. Maxx FX and VR FlyInside

    I'm fairly certain it isn't an issue with VR itself but how Flyinside renders as a third party plugin.....I vaguely remember reading that there are some rendering tricks they use to provide VR... Native VR is on the horizon, we will be on a holding pattern until then.....
  10. Gizmo64 causing frame drops up to 15 frames

    Steven, Take the time to read Ben's last post again......His explanation is spot on and thoroughly explains what you are seeing... Furthermore you may need to take the time to configure SMP to work with your installation of XP and your hardware....There are no free rides.... Performance highly depends on what add ons you are using in conjunction with SMP along with drivers and xp rendering settings..... It's a process for sure but one that's nessary and unique for everybody....
  11. Gizmo is break after install beta 8.

    May I chime in? Well I will anyway, I don't think any forum can present the "tone" from a post.....Knowing Cameron as I do I don't feel he was posting sideways just being direct.... With that said I've given him a hard time in the past about his web presence ......But rest assured his intent is good LOL
  12. Maxx FX and VR FlyInside

    I'm not using Fly Inside, I'm courious what do you mean it doesn't work?
  13. Maxx FX does not work in XP11.10

    You need to set your windows font to 100% it's a limitation of the installer. Also you may need to restart windows. Once you do this you will be able to type in your email and password
  14. GlacierMAXX View File This freeware scenery enhancement has been available for awhile I finally decided to upload it here to X-Pilot. GlacierMAXX replaces the default glacier textures in X-Plane with a more dramatic set. Using Normal Maps the textures have depth and specular highlights. **To Install** Just drop the "GlacierMAXX" folder into your custom scenery folder and fire up X-Plane. GM works in XP10 and XP11 Submitter JohnMAXX Submitted 10/26/2017 Category Misc Scenery Resources X-Plane Version(s)

  16. MAXX.FX 1.0 - Will Not Install

    Juan if I'm not mistaken try another zip utility and it should work fine.... **edit** Frank beat me to it...lol
  17. Considering Skymaxx Pro

    We tie into the default weather and further improve upon it with Real Weather Connector so things like ATIS, 3rd party weather radar and rain effects work seamlessly across the board....
  18. carenado low fps

    Let's just say certain Carenado aircraft are very unoptimized begin with... Very possible you are simply pushing your system to the limit using them in conjunction with other add ons including smp....
  19. Unfortunately Florida just got slammed by a hurricane, XA is based in Daytona beach..... Please exercise some patience until everything is returned to normal down there......
  20. SMP is independent of Replay's speed

    It's a limitation of xp, even outside of replay mode the clouds will continue to move. Processes are still running even when it's paused, this has always been this way.... Secondly, to be upfront, although there isn't much we can do it isn't a priority for us either.....
  21. A humble question

    Ole, I've been keeping an eye in this and I guess the best way to sum it all up for you is to say mental illness isn't always apparent to those going through it. It seems your questions have been answered. I can't even wrap my head around your constant badgering...... Take a step back for YOU, it's not heathly.... Best, John Resident psychologist
  22. How to temporarily switch SMP off?

    Just goto the plugin admin dialog and check it off.....along with rwc....
  23. SkyMaxx Pro v4 installation problem

    very strange but ok I'm glad it is sorted....
  24. SkyMaxx Pro v4 installation problem

    I'd try and download it again, it sounds like the file might be corrupt.... Or make sure an anti-virus isn't keeping you from opening up the .exe
