  1. "Just read the forums" Too much conflicting opinions. So you say, i7 4470, 32 GB and a GTX1070. Internet is fast, and a fat SSD. I use only 1080p, more then adequate. Hmm, will checkup on others who have this more or less..
  2. Hi gentlemen, and perhaps a woman or two ? Its been a long time, absent for may years. After FDE work in FS2004 and a bit of FSX I stopped simming all together, But now seeing this new sim, the itching starts again. Lurking for a while, reading and looking at YT movies I have a rough idea of waht the sim yet cannot do. We sure miss a lot. But, after many years of simming and pretending, airliners are not for me any more. Been there done that, This new sim is the VFR sim avant la lettre, or in english, perfectly fit. On to the questions. What recommendations you do for buying a machine to run this on ? I see 32 GB ram is enough. A fast CPU is very under utilised. (bug or patch needed), and a GPU card ?. Any affordable suggestions ? is i7 still in the game or ? Oh, I dream of a fluid VFR flight in all kinds of weather, with a nice radial, DC3 or a uhm.. L749 Greetings, Johan
  3. They dont bite the hand that feed them.
  4. The whole thing looks nice, but the colors are way way off. there is no brown in a -200 cockpit.
  5. Tanks Ed. Doing now Amsterdam to New York, and all goes nice, just left Oceanic control (PFE) with pmdg 747.
  6. [RANT] After a year back in the FS sadle. My windows 10 messed up my FSX installation after updates, missing fonts and stuff, I decided I was done with that c.r.a.p No more BS'ing to me MS. I am done with that. Just imagine, how many megabytes you need to just start your computer and be able to do nothing. THAT was different in the MS DOS days! Anyhow, I exorcised (spelling?) the devil, and put win-7 back. Disabled updates, no more messing around and installed FSX. Now, that was a bummer. My i5 cannot hold up flyable frames with this abomination, regretting to give my i7 to my daughter.. but you do everything for your kids. So, the only thing left was FS2004, with all the bells and whistles... and yes, any weather, aerosoft eham, pmdg 747, FDE, PFE, REX, GE-Pro, and still 20+ frames! Did some serious flights, and when busy, the outside doesnt matter, because no time to look!. But with good ground textures approach isnt that bad at all. [/RANT] So, back in the sadle. Even thinking about online flying, while being a long time ago, I still have my SATCO/VATSIM acccount. [RANT] Whats the fuzz about SF3D ? looked at some youtubes, but don't see a difference ? [/RANT] Only thing left is weather.. In stead of real weather I used to use in the past, I think about doing it the other way round, ME deciding the weather. Going to mess with themes, and saved weather. Good luck to you all, and be prepared for more grumpy me.
  7. 9 hrs ago he posted.. you didnt think about he already made a trip and is sleeping now ? Or am I getting grumpy..?
  8. Kai Tak is closed long time ago.. you need to google old charts. Navigraph wouldnt have any...
  9. Beware for a lot of grumpy old men, word not allowed and more.. woehahah!
  10. I can play a whole saturday, but when on approach, someone has to call on phone, or ring the doorbell. It just calls for a shotgun..
  11. I just upgraded to Win 7 from Win10. very happy now.
  12. That Connie has the same issue. Almost impossible to trim. Manfred's DC3 for example is easily to trim and fly. So its not my controller setup. A lot of other planes fly nicely. A guy on youtube (Wells?)was busy with it and saw a lot of wrong settings. He never did the pitching moment correction, and for me its to long ago to know how to solve this.
  13. The pitch problem is indeed the biggest issue with this Connie.
