    Let's be honest. If the Pope is a flight simmer, we would all want to know. 😉

    In fairness, it's your demeanor sometimes that brings this word into effect. Despite that, none of us are perfect and our passion for simming gets the best of us sometimes. (I've certainly shown a less than civil side here) No fooks offered. No fooks received... In any case, you should give tomatoes a second change. They are pretty tasty at times. 😉

    I hate that term so much. It's such a misnomer. You can say that certain add-ons are high-fidelity or vary in depth, but please as a community, let's drop this term from the lexicon of simming.

    Black Marble NG P3Dv4.3

    You misunderstood me. I am curious what your p3d Option-display page settings are. (LOD Radius, density, et al..) While I certainly have the horsepower, I feel I am still asking to much from the base program then it can keep up with. You're lights look great, so I am trying to compare to my own. Thanks!

    Thanks for this video, Brian. While the lights certainly look nice, I can still see the popping in at distance. Would you mind sharing your display settings?

    Tomato Shade Update out for 4.3

    I read your post as slow as humanly possible, but you're still making zero sense. Tomato is not for you. Carry on...

    Tomato Shade Update out for 4.3

    Don't let him bait you. Just leave him be and let him think he's getting "the edge" 😉
  8. There is a workaround a few of us have found. Undock the light sensor window prior to entering VR and it will not display.
  9. When a light joke goes too far... 😉 FWIW, I owned an '87 GTI that would do every bit of 145 mph on the autobahn, much to the dismay of my then girlfriend.
  10. This post headline initially made me chuckle. It made me think of this analogy. Your 4 graphics cards are the Autobahn, where speed limits in many places are non existent, ergo, you can go as fast as you want. P3D is your 1992 VW rabbit. 4-cylinder 1.8 litre 4-speed rocketship that tops out at 120kph. Try as you might, you are never going to reach the top speed you imagine in that car despite having all the space in the world to do so. Old engine, old limits... As many others have said, it's far better to upgrade the 4 old cards to one current gen card with as much VRAM as possible. Happy motorin' 😉

    QW787 P3Dv4 - first impressions?

    While the claim by QW has yet to be made that one can follow along with an FCOM, you are being a bit misleading in implying these features aren't included regardless of them not meeting your personal ArmchairATP standard. Included and easy to verify. Included and easy to verify. Use the EFB or CDU menus. Included and easy to verify - Look at the MFD Included and easy to verify. Included and easy to verify. Have you tried to hand fly the aircraft? It's simulation of FBW is arguably the best as of the recent crop of heavy airliners. While this needs a lot of work, it is simulated. The aircraft flares properly and the autothrottle system functions as it should during this phase This is included and easy to verify The thing is everything that was "promised" here is included in this simulation.
  13. Mark, try this website - Overclock[.]Net You'll find lots of help there. Overclocking is as much an art as it is a science so stay patient and stick with it.

    Disappointment at Wing Creations Tokyo Narita scenery

    If you are using Orbx Vector this will happen. You have to delete or rename the follow file and the flickers will cease. 8519_OBJ_ExtrusionBridges_Railway.bgl in FTX_VECTOR_OBJ
  15. You can OC memory, but you won't see a noticeable benefit. Better to go into your BIOS and enable XMP to on. This will put your RAM into what can be best described as a "high performance" mode. FWIW, you should do some stress-testing to ensure you have true stability, otherwise when you experience a crash (and you will, because that's what OC'ing is all about) you'll be at a loss as to what is happening and why. Intel Burn Test is a great tool to see where your OC stands. if you can pass 10 cycles on Max you should be good to go.
