NVidia vs AMD: Shader differences

Around Christmas last year I made quite some changes to the shaders that ModelConverterX uses to be able to implement the PBR materials. Around that time I also optimized the code of the ModelConverterX preview to have better performance and less memory usage. This week it turned out that these new shaders did not give […]

3D buildings in scenProc

Creating autogen buildings with scenProc is quite easy. But the autogen buildings also do have some drawbacks, mainly the fact that they need to be rectangular. Therefore it has been on the scenProc wishlist for quite a while already to be able to create MDL buildings for footprints that are hard to represent with autogen. […]

ModelConverterX performance update

Over the past weeks I have been working hard to make ModelConverterX work more efficient. And the good news is that I have finished this improvement now, so the next development release contains these optimizations. So this is my (slightly early) Christmas present to all ModelConverterX users. It will give you more available RAM left […]

MCX performance optimizations

Lately it has been quiet with new features for ModelConverterX, but that doesn’t mean I have not been busy. After optimizing the import performance of glTF files for MSFS, I found quite a big inefficiency in the way ModelConverterX stores the model data internally. So I have been working on optimizing that internal structure of […]

Their system administrators are looking at this issue, but unfortunately […]

FSDeveloper down

Today the hosting company where FSDeveloper is hosted moved the website to their new hosting platform. But although the migration has finished, the website is not yet working correctly. I get a “Service unavailable” error most of the time now. I am in contact with the hosting company to resolve this, but I need their […]
