But you might as well update to 5.1 to at least fix the CTD issue with SimConnect windows. Unless you don't use GSX then maybe it's not such a big issue.

I have GSXL2 but havent had a CTD yet

Another issue with the trueSKY people have been mentioning is scenery objects behind the clouds popping out, but I am unable to reproduce it. Could someone post screenshots showing the issue?

Still haven't updated to v5.1 yet and really wondering. Is v5.1 really that bad? Is it worse than v5.0 HF2? My experience with EA was great so far, and now I am afraid of updating. I know that there are some visual glitches with clouds but most of them are related to the trueSKY itself (they can also be observed in other software using trueSKY) and I am pretty much used to them. I am mostly afraid of the scenery objects behind the clouds popping out issue (even though haven't been able to reproduce it so far), could someone elaborate on that?

Colors and general "atmosphere" is not too bad once you get up in the air. 
Milviz B350i seems to work fine in 5.1. Just missing my ezdok and Active Sky

No, they follow the 4 types that can be set via UI in custom weather.

Cheers, Rob

Thanks. I tried it and you're correct.

Might be worth checking you have the latest RXP GTN750 version -- I have ver 2.5.27 which was released in early Sept2020. I also don't see a rash of complaints on the RXP forum which I would expect if there was a general GTN problem with P3Dv5.1. Another thing you could check is the settings in the RealityXP.GTN.ini file in the main folder for the aircraft you are using.

The Flight1 GTN750 also seems to work well.

Thanks,

I have the latest version , it makes no sense because the stock gps is working fine, it works fine in v5 hf2 so why does it do this in 5.1? i dont get it.....

Try some different aircraft if you haven't done so -- might be some kind of autopilot issue. Below are some of my GTN settings. In the top group, only Connect GPS to VOR is Off, all the rest are On in the RXP ini file.

Don’t be afraid. 5.1 is definitely an improvement over 5hf2. They fixed many bugs and TrueSky has more features than before. The lighting also seems even better in TrueSky. 
 

LM just didn’t give us everything we wanted and didn’t fix every bug so we’re a bit disappointed. 
 

That 5.1 is a step in the right direction should be obvious.

Here is a video of P3D V5.1 to explore the problems of EA.
https://youtu.be/uGCF9Euf-uM

there are some 3rd party addons used. Are they already updated to 5.1? Becauase some Objects/Textures are need a rework to work with EA/TrueSky.
