Why is so much RAM needed for Steam DLCs?
EliGrim posted a topic in ATC Simulators@FeelThere, @nyergesdesign, @FeelThere Ariel, Can you do me a favor and explain why so much RAM for the latest airport DLCs is required for the Steam version? With KDFW and later airports the minimum requirement has doubled compared to the base game. Recommended are a staggering 32 GB RAM, compared to the 8 GB recommended for OMDB and earlier airports and the base game. In my opinion, the system requirements of a DLC should never exceed those of the base game. Sometimes this happens if a DLC is a self-contained or (almost) stand-alone expansion with new game mechanics and significantly improved graphics. But that is not the case here. If we assume 3 GB of RAM (idle) and add 0.5 GB for Steam, 8 GB should be absolutely sufficient to play the game and any DLC airport. Edit: In addition to this, you recommend 8 GB of hard disk space since KRDU. Where does this number come from? Why not specify the DLC size and increase the recommended size of the base game? Could this 8 GB be an estimated total for the base game and all DLC? Does this mean that you are planning another 60 airport DLCs for T!3D? Extrapolated these would be required to use a total of 8 GB of hard disk space.
thepropilot747 posted a topic in ATC SimulatorsI to those people who have bought a lot of addons from the atcsuite website does the company that makes it ever have sales where things are at a lower price like for Christmas or something or do the prices never change. Also I am wondering is it worth it to get the real color and real traffic addons for airports.
tower!3d pro KLGA grills my CPU and crashes my PC
EliGrim posted a topic in ATC SimulatorsHello everyone, I bought KLGA quite a while ago, but I only got to try it yesterday. At first I noticed that the movements are faster than at other airport DLCs. The aircraft models move so fast that it is comparable to twice or maybe even four times the speed at other airports. Personally, that's very welcome to me, but... At the same time T!3D Pro overheats my CPU while playing KLGA and overflows the Windows Page File. After a few minutes this results either in a safety shutdown of the system or in a crash with blue screen and Page File warning. Changes to the Page File, such as reducing or enlarging does not bring any change. A deactivation of the Page File results in a Windows system hold with blue screen due to insufficient RAM or an even faster emergency shutdown of the PC due to overheating. CPU, GPU and case are dynamically cooled. Typically the case fans are at 100% when 60 °C / 140 °F are reached. The CPU cooling is at over 71 °C / 160 °F at 100%. Running all fans manually at 100% (2200 rpm CPU - 140mm, 2900 rpm system fans - 5x 120mm - 2x front in, 3x top/back out) is merely loud, but does not prevent overheating when I try to play KLGA. Today I tried the base game airports and all DLCs in my possession. Only KLGA has these problems. Other DLCs or other CPU-intensive games like Planet Coster don't overheat my system. My Specs (as detailed as possible to avoid a back and forth): - Windows 10 Pro v1903 (latest build, latest updates) - MB MSI B350M PRO-VDH (latest Bios) - CPU AMD Ryzen 5 2600 (6 cores / 12 threads, 3,4 / 3,9 GHz, not OC) - GPU MSI GTX 1060 GAMING X (6GB GDDR5, 192-bit), (core clocks 1784 MHz / 1569 MHz, memory speed 8008 MHz, not OC) Latest GeForce Game Ready Driver v441.08 (10/29/2019) installed - RAM T-Force Nighthawk 32 GB DDR4-3200 (running in 2999 MHz profile with 1.32 V) - SSD (240 GB) for Windows, SSD (250 GB) for Temp, Data and Program Cache, SSHD (2 TB) for games - Latest Steam Version of T!3D Pro (SP3.3c), RC for KLGA (and others), RT sp6v17 Has anyone experienced anything like this or has any idea what I can do? Regards EliGrim
Tower!3D Pro: When will all DLCs be available on Steam?
Fred_Mertz posted a topic in ATC SimulatorsI just bought Tower!3D Pro and KSAN for Steam. The traffic and color addons aren't available there. I realize I can buy them directly from atcsuite.com, but I have a habit of losing small programs, which is why I like buying DLCs on Steam- they will forever be associated with the account and always ready for download. Will they be made available there? If so, when? If not for a while, will I be offered a Steam key if I showed proof of purchase when it eventually does get put there?
