  1. Since sim release I've been flying in the US & Canada. Pre 2nd patch it was not even worth tuning into ATIS as it was wrong on just about everything, reporting Heavy Rain while out the cockpit window clear skys. Always 3 layers of clouds just about all listed as Few, like Few at 400 Few at 4100, Few at 11,200. Post patch 2 Wind direction and speed seems to be matching(at least it been variable on reporting), even seen some Calm reports. Temperature is right and so is altimeter. But the Sky conditions are still wrong 100% of the time. Dew Point is always 10C, even when temp is say correctly reported at like 3C. Edit: Oh yeah forgot to mention Visibility post patch 2 seems to sometimes be correct it's not always 3 miles like it was at release. Now I've seen 10 & 14 miles reported as examples.
  2. I was doing the same, but over SE Alaska and was having no problems. In my first test flight post patch just flying a circuit around the airport that for the first time I was issued a "TERRAIN" warning that I hadn't had noticed pre 2nd-patch.
  3. Yep, that's the one I was going to add but you beat me to it. It's been a bit annoying seeing as a lot of my flying last few weeks has been in NW Canada and Alaska. So I've almost hurt my retinas from eye rolling at seeing temperature 3C dewpoint 10C. ๐Ÿ™„
  4. Hmm, no problems as far as that goes for me. Had a quick 15 min flight around the airport I was last in, to see the new things from the patch(after it was finally installed Weds night) and that was saved along with 2 flights I did on Thurs an hour & hour and a half long flights. Did notice a fix in the log, prior to patch, flight was only shown as month/year. Post patch it was now showing Month/Day/Year. It would be nice to have an editor for it.
  5. I had my patch stop at 36% of fs-base.005 file, it had dl'ed about 12gb of the 15gb. After about 20 mins of it not doing anything, paused it and restarted. Nothing again. So exited out and restarted patch DL. Was "glad" to see at least it started back on the same file it was stuck on even though it was now @ 0% of that file. Now it had 18.82gb to DL. Wait what!?! I only had about 3 gb of my patch left and now it DL'ing the whole patch again plus the 3gb left from the 1st time. ๐Ÿคช Right now it's on 11 of the 18.82gb it's DL'ing. So don't know if it really need all 18gb or may even go past that.
  6. Maybe we'll get TV/Radio masts someday too(with guide wires too of course). ๐Ÿ™‚
  7. I have had this too. But I've also had(haven't seen any mentions from others yet) where the G1000 reflections in the windows looked like that too. Originally they didn't, but I must have changed a setting and I started getting that static/dithered look. Once when I boosted my seat up once then reflections in windscreen went away altogether.(ie when I put seat back down reflections didn't come back) ๐Ÿค”
  8. Yeah I remember when he finally admitted why he tore up the runways in the middle of the night he knew he'd be sued to stop it if he asked about doing it(by at least 1 group Friends of Meigs Field). So he just went and did it, since he new he could get away with it. The City was later fined by the FAA $33,000(a mere pittance) for not following protocols for shutting down an airport properly. That being giving the FAA 30-days notice about closure($1,100 per day fine for 30-days).
  9. Try 'Ctrl' + 'Num Del' is the Parking brakes toggle, 'Num Del' is just braking while your holding down that key.
  10. It's a Park, where in summer time they also have small outdoor concerts. Stranded planes were allowed to take off from the Taxi way for one last time. https://www.chicagobusiness.com/article/20030402/NEWS02/20008411/faa-clears-way-for-meigs-takeoffs
  11. Thanks! Turns out renaming it back to correct name didn't help still sat there with black screen where logos should have played. So tried verify files via steam it dl'ed a 1.5mb file, it then loaded into game. Correction: turns out I named the xbox logo file wrong, so thats what the file verification downloaded and allowed it to run again. It's Logo_Msgs.mp4 not Logo_Mgs.mp4 ๐Ÿ˜ Hmm, And as a added wrinkle my logbook is back. ๐Ÿค”
  12. Can someone peak in their Steam\steamapps\common\MicrosoftFlightSimulator\Packages\fs-base-onboarding\logos folder and let me know what the Xbox Logo's filename is I accidentally had it renamed and now without it named correctly FS wont start. Argh! Was poking around after computer reset on flight loading and on next run, I think cfg file and logbook got wiped too. Logbook was empty and at startup in asked config questions like when game was first installed. ๐Ÿ˜ข
  13. Maybe it's trying to mine some crypto currency when minimized. ๐Ÿคฏ ๐Ÿ˜‰
  14. Ran across a 'bug' perhaps in the Installer/Downloader from MS? Since my internet connection is only running @ 12mbs I have plenty of time to just what download go by. Since the installer doesn't show current download speed I had the task manager open to watch the Ethernet speed go by. AS you may know it also shows things like CPU % utilization and GPU % utilization. Well, the installer was using 22% of my GPU so I figured, maybe if I minimize that it might cut back on its % of utilization. On minimize the Installer was now using 82% of my GPU! Ouchie. So much for keeping the GPU cool for the 10 hour install time. ๐Ÿ™‚ That wasn't all I noticed when minimized CPU usage went from 10-11% to 32-38%. Guess its better to keep the window open I guess. ๐Ÿค” Oh yeah for reference my CPU in an AMD 3700X & GPU is an Powercolor Red Devil 5700XT.
