Object Libraries for RTMM / Re: Ketchikan Ferry / UKVFR Library
« on: September 08, 2018, 07:49:04 AM »
I will go one step further and say that a separate UKVFR library could interfere with our libraries since we upgraded the UKVFR objects that are contained in our libraries to work with the latest versions of P3D.  The old UKVFR library objects will not display in the latest versions of P3D.

Hi Handie,

One of the effect files that produces waterfalls is fx_WaterFall.fx if you want to make sure that file is in your effects folder.  However, you are missing all kinds of effects from different effect files.   I would recommend posting the problem in the Help and Troubleshooting section of the RTMM site as a new posting since it will get more views.   Maybe someone will have experienced this problem before.  In reposting the problem, make sure you mention if you can see smoke effects (like chimneys etc.).   Be specific if it is just effects that involve water falls, sprays, water trailers, boat wakes etc. 

I just can't think of why you would lose all effects associated with water and yet have other effects if, indeed, that is true.

Hi Handie,

I am baffled by what you are experiencing.  The effects files that come with TWC-2 are unique files and don't overwrite standard effect files.  There is no way that installing TWC-2 will make other effects stop working.  There has to be something else going on.  Did you accidentally turn off effects?

Hi Handie,

The 3 effects in questions are the fx_wake_RusrivFerry_RPJ.fx and the two fx_water_object_*.fx effects.  all the others are the same for both versions.

The FSX version should work in P3D 2.4.  You can try the P3Dv3 version but take a look at the trailers from the rocks below the Princess Lodge and see if they look like the pics or if you have white spots moving all over the place.   Also, take a look at the Russian river ferry wake and see which way looks best.   No one on the test team still uses v2.4 of P3D.

Let us know what you find.

Hi Brad,

Thanks!  It does use frame rates due mostly to all of the objects and the fact that the trees are almost doubled from the ORBX default.     I watched the FPS very carefully as I built since I knew it would be a problem.   I run it on 3 screens totaling 5040 X 1050 resolution at 32 FPS locked and works pretty well on P3Dv3 which is lower than v4.   However, I do not use shadows when I am running because they are heavy frame rate killers and also have to watch how densely clouded the weather is.   You can really gain some frames by turning shadows down partially.....quality, cast distance, etc.  Also, you can gain frames by turning vegetation density down a notch and you hardly notice the change in tree density but it does have a lowering effect on frames since there are so many trees.

Hi rgerdes,

Interesting story.   The fishermen are focused and tough.  I saw one video when doing research where a bear was approaching a fisherman with a string of fish and his fellow anglers yelled, "give the bear the fish" but he didn't want to give his catch up. 

Have fun!
