Nearly 7 years after its original release, Aerosoft has announced that an updated version of Rotterdam The Hague Airport has started development. The airport will be released under Aerosofts all too familiar "Professional" tier. This includes support for Prepar3d v4 and dynamic lighting. Because the original scenery is already quite dated the scenery will include more than just compatibility updates.

P3D Nvidia VAS Leak Fixed?

nvidiablackbanner

Nvidia released a driver update for their GeForce graphics cards, version 378.49 which was reported to leak VAS. They later released another update, version 378.66 which fixed the leak but still had P3D running high VAS usage. The only solution was to roll back to version 376.33 and hope Nvidia fixed the issue.

After being a little annoyed, I actually took it upon myself to simply report this issue to Nvidia using their forums. Prepar3d doesn’t get much, if any, attention in the GeForce forums so it isn’t any surprise the problem existed in two driver builds. After posting the issue with links to the Prepar3d forums I was asked to try the hotfix 378.72 driver to see if the problem was fixed.

I’m happy to say the hotfix driver solved everything and appears to be stable with P3D! In addition, I am actually seeing better VAS results than I was on the 378.66 build. So, if you’d like to update your drivers, go ahead and grab the 378.72 build and see how it goes for you.

Only a few updates back in December 2016 were given. These announced the products moving from a development phase to a beta testing phase. But a few hours ago
