Huge fps drop in and around Ketchikan (PAKT)
« on: December 01, 2018, 04:07:30 PM »
Good evening, Captains!

After so many flight hours in and around PAKT (Ketchikan), I have a strange problem, which I've never had before.

When I start at rwy 11 for a southbound flight, particularly looking at any direction between 60-150°M, my FPS drop from 22-25, which is quite normal for my old rig with all FSX settings maxed, to... 1-2 fps. :(
I have the latest Orbx PAKT and RTMM sceneries supported by the latest libraries. I've so far disabled Ketchikan Harbor and PAKT Ferry, all traffic (both aircraft and ships), as well as all Orbx enhancements for the area to no avail yet...

Again, my fps drop drastically only at PAKT, nowhere else. I can still have a smooth flight in other mountainous areas with high mesh resolution setting. I've never had this problem before, as I'm a regular flyer in this area.

As an experiment, I've taken off from PANT (Annette Island) and PF20 (Misty's Place) several times heading to various directions other than those specified above. All goes OK up until I start turning and face exactly the angle between 60-150°M, even from a longer distance.

Is there any hidden or visible object in this particular location causing fps hit?

Any help is welcome, as I need to complete a couple of MFC tours focused on and around Ketchikan... :(

     Yes, Ketchikan is quite taxing on the system.  Very much so for me as well.  There is A LOT going on in that area, and I am not sure what the issue is.  Make sure you don't have the old garbage and log barges near Herring Bay installed.  But those were said to cause CTD, not slow down the system.  On my previous system, the PAKT area was a slideshow for me.  Now ... not so bad.  But there is a resource hog somewhere in the area. 
     Is there a software detective out there that can fix this?  Maybe see what is causing the bottleneck?  ???

I remember having this issue in the past and if I remember correctly, wasn't there an issue with some sound files at Nina's Landing causing these massive FPS hits? However, inside the current zip of that scenery from us, there aren't any sound files included so probably not this after all.

Hmmm...

Evening Brad,

I owe you a beer cuz you've hit the jackpot just before I was to give up!  :)

I had Nina's Landing installed but not updated. I don't know how I missed that one cuz I regularly check the NOTAMs page.

Anyway, thank YOU very much indeed!!!

Excellent. Glad I still remembered that one.
