Get some decent scenery, turn on EA, fly the Maddog - then you'll be happier. 

I can promise you that the MD-82 - which is very compatible with v5 - looks beautiful in the virtual cockpit, with everything clearly visible. Leonardo got their PBR right, unlike what you show here.

By the way, those clouds loud dreadful. Are you running some kind of addon that is breaking them? Mine look nothing like that at all.

Will the clouds and water be beautiful too?

I think V5 runs greats but obviously it doesn't have the modern look that FS2020 will bring. It will take some times before all the 3rd party dev convert their plane so I think P3D is here a pretty good option still right now.

When you install it on YOUR rig with YOUR bandwidth then you will see what is remaining of all the PR video glory.

Uh...yes?

Your aircraft looks bad because the VC panel is not set up for v5 PBR - that's something the dev needs to fix.

Truesky looks beautiful, so yes for the clouds. I don't know what the abominations in your screenshots were, but that's not in any way typical of Truesky/EA. Take a look at any of the Truesky videos to see what it's meant to look like.

NVidia's waves are pretty cool as well.

Your clouds and sim should be looking something like this:

so, reinstall if you installed with admin, ore is there a fix

 

You'll be fine. My point as iterated above is that forcing run as admin yourself, when the program elevates to admin for you, can lead to malware. When the program elevates to admin itself any malware attached, which is rare but can happen, does not have a chance to install. In the case of P3D not likely at all, well, hopefully. The main reason for the advice to right-click and run as admin that way is because the program you are installing can't do it by itself, which is rare these days, and is basically a hang over from the poor advice in the past. One of those things unfortunately.

And am waiting on RXP also.

The P3D5 HF2 Compatible Reality XP GTN 750/650 Touch and GNS 530/430 V2 updates were released a couple hours ago already!

Please note: both products are always forward compatible with any new P3D5 release*.
The updates are only needed for auto-pilot coupling.

 

*unless the new update significantly changes the SDK implementation.

So much more beautiful! I will have to completely reinstall the simulator. And show the waves please. My oil looks awful.

I am not the one who brought this up but I agree we can go back to talking about HF2. CYVR is still broken for me. I'll post a video later.

Also, whilst there may be a tiny, theoretical risk of malware problems with using "install as administrator" with the P3D installer, this has been standard practice for years with FSX and P3D, and I would definitely still recommend that people install this way. In fact, I've never heard an argument against doing this and it's been SOP since FSX at least.

Hi, there is one MAJOR counter argument to this:

Whenever you run a program as admin, every single file/registry/folder it creates are with as-admin rights (to make it simple). Running a program as normal user which is reading a registry key set as-admin during installation might fail accessing it.

Furthermore, when running as-admin Windows interposes a shim between the program and some key registry/file locations (it redirects to another path) so that subsequently running as normal user will fail to access these too.

Windows Vista and as-admin/UAC has been released 10 years ago, programming best-practices to deal with UAC are well documented. You might want to reconsider any product requiring/imposing you run anything as-admin unless it is an admin tool (or there is a specific and documented need to bypass UAC).

What is the proper way to install the update for those of us currently on HF1? Do we just uninstall the client, content and scenery and reinstall the new ones from HF2 and then delete shaders?

Yes, and probably delete your Prepar3d.cfg as well and clear Nvidia profiles.
