@G-RFRY Raymond, tears well in my eyes when I view your system specs.

Just to let you know 4K ULTRA can`t say more NDA not lifted.

100% Streamed.

Some of those FPS are worrying considering the high end rig and settings but as a GA flyer mainly I'm hoping its just the larger airliners that are strangling the life out of the FPS.

Plus the 3000 series is on the horizon so that should allow for even more heavy lifting.

The Citation FPS experience is looking much better, similar FPS 40-50 both inside and outside the cockpit.  787 Cockpit must be very heavy resource user, hope that can be improved.  If the Citation FPS is good, it's likely good for any glass GA aircraft also.

From a technical viewpoint it suggests the larger the plane with a bigger cockpit = performance decrease, versus a smaller plane with smaller cockpit = performance increase.

Bigger the plane the more polygons needed to create it, bigger the cockpit the more instrumentation + polygons + CPU cycles for the instruments etc etc.

I think it's safe to say she isn't very impressed...

I am not surprised. It's mostly a VFR sim at this point. We knew this for a long time but this is just default aircraft. Once the real plane appears on the marketplace, everything will be ok.

I wonder if there's even any kind of documentation with the sim.

It's quite worrying when you have trained pilots trying to figure out the stock airplanes by cluelessly pushing buttons and going "well, in real life, it would be doing something now."

How are regular users supposed to figure out something like the Airbus, I wonder.

It just doesn't behave like a plane should. It's really hard to fly using the avionics.

From what I’ve seen, the Checklist functionality shows you exactly what buttons need to be pushed, and in what over. The UI centers the camera over the current buttons and even highlights them in the cockpit.

 

Also, it’s clear the review embargo did not lift this morning. I saw someone who received a review copy yesterday say on Twitter that his review will be up on the 17th...
