RAM issue on Mac


Recommended Posts


I've a mid 2017 iMac with 40GB RAM (upgraded). The Aircraft runs very smoothly.

However, when flying this plane, I have the issue, that the RAM usage is slowly increasing. It starts so swap out out to virtual RAM until at some point about 320 GB of memory is reached. Then X-Plane doesn't hang up, but runs very very slowly (approx 1 fame every 2-4 seconds?) and MacOS requests to quit X-Plane... This happens after around 30 minutes.

I do not have this problem with other aircraft... 

Is this a bug or something with my configuration? 

Thank you very much!

Yes, Skymaxx Pro v5 to display the clouds, but I'm using the X-Plane real time weather. 

I believe now that it must have been something with real time weather or rather the display of it, as it happened 3 times in a row and at the 4th time with a weather preset of X-Plane (same route) everything was ok. 

I can try again with real time weather later, as now the weather is different. As I remember, it was stormy when RAM issue occurred.
