Good day all. 

May be out of the topic. If I install v5., will I lose 4.5 or it will be two separate simulators on my PC?  

Thanks 

For the first time, they have different ident flags, that W10 will see as separate. You are good to go!   Do NOT delete v4.5, unless you need the room. Fly that, as WELL as enjoying the new v5...so you get up to speed with all the changes...and as 3rP bring v5 installers on, you have the best of both worlds...why delete a fat copy of v4.5 when you no longer need to because of installation W10 conflict. That is past now....

Downloaded, in the can, ready to install.

Isn't this when I start asking when V6.0 will be available?

Keep the blue side up and the greasy side down. Enjoy!

Thank you. I was concerned how will v5 be installed. Will the installer pick a location/folder by default, or I will be able to specify my own location. I guess it won't be that complicated. 

And yes, I see no reason to remove v4.5.

Oh no no, let's stick with v5 for now. I have no burning desire to spend another $200

And how the artist chose the shades of lighting is also unclear

What kind of halo around the plane is unclear

Have the same, also around trees, when clouds are touching them. Looks horrible. 😵

Is it still pinned? I lost the Notepad I had made a copy of your Settings.

Lads, you're just like the word not allowed toilet paper hoarders. You are wrecking the servers by taking more bandwidth than you need!!!

Please calm down. There is NO NEED to download this right now. Go outside, breathe some fresh air. Prepar3D will still be there when you get back.

This is important, as I REALLY want to be the first to get v5 in the air - like, right now - and y'all are ruining my download.

@Sethos, I think the servers are robust, there's just no server that is made to cope with this many 'F5' keypresses. 😉

 

 

No, no, stay at home !!! 😄

Auto exposure works !! It's nice.

But kilometer-high antennas remained the same.

By some of the comments typed here yesterday, you' think some believed that all L.M. would need, would be a 1988 300baud modem....LOL!    It's my take, that some that who 'said' they would not buy into v5 'publicly'....are ABSOLUTELY banging the F5 key, and cursing out everybody else that slipped in ahead of them.  That's my personal take...   Those two Poll Lines that show activity as Will wait...or Never buy....yeah...yep..sure...yep....yeah...Ok....whatever...yep...yeah...! :  I'm standing in line with them at this very moment....LOLOLOLOLOL!   Yep...yeah...sure....

There's a clear lack of understanding how digital content is delivered to the end user; today, computer resources can be dynamically allocated.   In short, LM probably chose not to allocate additional bandwidth/edge computing to their cloud service platforms; from a finical perspective, it makes sense not to allocate additional resources to deal with a temporary demand, especially when said resources are need for other applications. Thus, even a moderate increase in demand will be noticeable to the end-user.  Obviously, there's going to be a larger demand during the first few hours of release; especially when large swaths of the world are sitting at home simultaneously, which is very atypical.  You'll know if the release is widely popular if you experience the same difficulties in 72+ hrs, then your smugness may be justified...
