Really looking forward to the update this week!..

Recommended Posts

Can't wait to try controller support in VR. I think it's coming in this update.

DX12 is preview not final so might be best to tailor expectations. 

If you have less than 12GB VRAM then you might have to adjust graphic settings, even with decade old DX11 graphics API at "Ultra" settings in MSFS I used 10.2GB over Tokyo.  Since this is going to be a DX12 preview if one exceeds VRAM then I would expect the handling of exceeding resources to be a little rough around the edges (CTD).

EDIT: I hope they don't dynamically try to reduce image quality to save on VRAM

I'm more interested in SDK updates and bug fixes (like 787 AP and other aircraft AP), especially the SDK which is still a big roadblock for what I want to do and provide.

I was hoping for better Photogrammetry and/or Sat imagery threading, these long 1-3 second pauses are pretty distracting when changing views or aircraft direction that requires additional PR/Sat loading.  DX12 should be a good solution for this problem, I'm hoping it is.

Cheers, Rob.

Im most excited for the veg slider, NXCub and the PC6. Gonna be a fun time. The F-18 grates on me and I will remove it from Content Manager. Slightly nervous about what else may break but nervousness is less and less each time as I realize theres nothing I can do about it, the updates will always come. 

Right now I have the game looking awesome even on this old crate PC of mine and im very happy.

If they break the tree distance again for the 4th time, I'll sell my rig and never return to MSFS.

Thanks to a poster on the official forum I have discovered that my system is not DX12Ultimate compatible.

What graphics card do you have?

Anyone knows if "new weather system" means we finally going to have some haze and fog ?

The Developmental Updates all have stated 11/18/2021, which is this Thursday.  I have a 2 hour flight scheduled for the 18th so will start the sim before the update goes live so I can fly during the havoc!  LOL!

Good plan. Ostensibly you could just keep the power on and Windows updates turned off to avoid reboots, then keep going from one flight to the next never exiting the Sim for as long as it takes until the anguished screams on the ground die down after an ensuing hotfix or even the next update... 😀

I don't think anybody knows this yet.  They did say they are looking at a visibility setting, but not sure if it will be in this update.

I have seen some people get haze and fog, but I think it was from live weather.  Not sure how to set it manually.

I dont get the DX12 thing, When P3D v5 was release DX12 was a nightmare. 

Your res you use will use more VRAM so if you on 4k and go over what you have if like P3D its ...CTD time(unless your on a min of a 3080Ti+). This sim looking stunning with the lighting we have within it, so unless I see some amazing sim changeing looks then I will stick with DX11.

As for all the rest, ...well lets just hope it does well.

A Veg...slider? really...sounds great. That I would look forward to.

Didn't they usually collect questions in anticipations of those Q&As on the official forum? Not that I recall having seen any.

Kind regards, Michael

True!  Maybe more of a presentation of what's coming this time rather than a Q&A.  :smile:  Jayne normally takes a few questions from the chat messages at the side of the screen, but no formal forum Q&A thread this time as you say - at least, I haven't seen one.

Yes, I hope broccoli is an option! :laugh:

On DX12, I think it is more for the future to enable better reflections and shadowing at some stage.  And of course, ray tracing.  I think we may need next gen cards for that though to hold 30+ FPS.
Still, it has to keep moving forward, and we can turn it on and off at least, which may be needed for some time.

I remember Steve's DX10 fixer for FSX.  Stepping up from DX9, it transformed the sim for me, with cloud shadows etc.  Like anything, it had bugs and artefacts to start with, but Steve worked tirelessly to fix them, and it the end it was great.  I expect the DX12 experience to be somewhat similar to start with.

I wonder if they have a Q and A, will the Google versus Bing topic come up?
