Well installed 5.1 with hotfix. First time running V5 since I bought it the first week it came out. So far very enjoyable experience. Doing a flight VHHH-ZBAA with Aerosoft A330. Only other addons installed are FSUIPC, Active Sky with latest update, GSX, ORBX Global base. And scenery for both airports. Taxi2Gate and A_A Sceneries. Very smooth with no stutters. Only complaint is the depiction of clouds. Not sure how to fix if possible. But so far its running very good.

I was a bit like you about the depiction of clouds, but when you installed the hotfix it did not update the volumetric clouds.cfg.

If you delete this file and restart the sim, clouds should be a lot better. There is a thread about this from Rob about this.

Not sure if this is your problem, apologies if you have already done this

 

Regards

I spent a full day installing v5.1.1 with only a few add-on airports and GSX.   I'm getting "No Jetways Here" at add-on airports other than those authored by FSDT.  I've asked for help of their forums but so far no luck.  For me that will be a deal breaker.

ActiveSky has been updated to work with the latest Hot Fix.

But you have to already be enrolled in the open Beta right? I took the v4.5 to v5.1.1 leap this week. Have everything installed and set up pretty well. Haven't experimented with EA off yet, but without ActiveSky I'm just waiting...

I'm not sure. Check HiFi's download page. You should be able to download the latest update.

Nope, I was right the first time, unless you are already enrolled for the beta when you run ASP3D the log in fails.

No Milviz planes which might not be a problem for you 

or rather only the KingAir, a Fighter Jet- Talon and WW11 twin boom fighter 

Rather a hole in the boat for me as Bush Pilot-No Beavers ,Otters etc

Yes

Runs smoother than 4.5 without stuttering with more stable FPS

My specs: Ryzen 5 2600x, 16 Gb Ram, Win 10, GTX 1080, many addons

That's encouraging to hear. 

I have similar specs to yours especially ram and video card.

My only bump in the road is my c drive ssd is has only 9gb free space. I need to find a way to migrate to larger ssd without the need to buy new windows 10 license. I already upgraded it from windows 7.

My other concern is my vram space on my 1080 graphics card is 8gb. Is that enough to run p3d with many addons like activesky, pmdg and fslabs and orbx?

For what it is worth, I just deleted V4.5. off my system 🙂

With the new Hotfix and 5.1, I think that I too, Bert, am ready to delete 4.5.  It was a nice ride, while it lasted...but it's time.
