Brief description of the issue:

I just finished my game by stopping the game during the flight.
Everything was fine, FPS at 40, gameplay smooth. I took off from an airfield in the Paris area, and headed to Normandy, I was at 30000 feet and suddenly my FPS went down to 5, I couldn’t get out of it, in outdoor view the FPS went back up to 38 but with big jerks. I don’t know if it’s a coincidence, but it happened when I wrote in the FMC, a destination airport and the STAR in the middle of the flight.

Did you try the sim without mods? might take a couple of days for mods to update if anyone was affected by the new SU9

I would try another flight, later, maybe it’s from FSPUIC, I would try another flight without, to see.

I had similar with this update when it increased the load on some cores of my CPU. It ran OK after I left it running.

I just tested, with my empty community folder, I was able to land without any FPS problem at EGLL, but on the other hand I was not able to write a flight plan in the FMC en route, because having also removed Navigraph, I had no more data.

Hi all!
I just wanted t oshare a tweak to the sim I was suggested from very unexpected source - Fenix A320 support, that fixed my FPS.
So from the beginning I was struggling with FPS getting to 5 within an hour from the start of the game, this morning I even managed to get 1 when I had aircraft in C&D parked at teh gate.
Anyways, I browsed lots of forums and tried turning V-sync and limiting FPS to 30 (no difference for me), I removed all world updates I had installed (apparently photogrammetry is causing lots of FPS loss - no change for me, I removed whatever I thought was causing problems from community folder - no difference).
Few hours ago I got a response from Fenix (I was in touch with them, because I initially thought that it was their update that caused by frames to drop) and they suggested turning OFF SCREEN TERRAIN PRE-CACHING to ULTRA (I had it on medium) - problem solved!!
I just finished flight with Fenix A320 London Heathrow to Ljubljana with no problems what-so-ever!
Give it a go, who knows, maybe it will work for you too!

Clear skies and soft landings!
