Now I'm waiting mainly for Pete Dowson and Active Sky to follow suit.

Who and what else might be affected by HF2?

Thanks.

Are you assuming FSUIPC6 won't work with the HF2?

Is it normal to get lower FPS with clear skies than in fogged situations?

FSL:LM did not fix the bug we wanted to fix, so our model was temporarily not released until LM fixed the bug we wanted to fix.

PMDG:We are not satisfied with HF2, so the release of our 737 and 777 will also be delayed until LM releases HF3.

John Dowson's FSUIPC6 is already compatible with P3D5. Interim updates do not introduce incompatibilities -- it uses SimConnect and the PDK for which L-M take care of compatibility between changes.

I think the latest Active Sky beta is also compatible, but I'll test that tomorrow.
