  1. This means that if we connect to NZ VPN the metars would be ok , or MSFS will disregard it anyway?
  2. I also found this link for the same document , but has search capabilities and better looks. https://www.manualslib.com/manual/2119142/Honda-Hondajet-Ha-420.html?page=17#manual
  3. It was a favorite upon launch. v2 brought AAU1 avionics in to the mix, an di couldn't stop flying this little bird this weekend. Marvelous job! P.s. As always if you need the photos at full res , see my link in the sugnature.
  4. My preference list for now is A310,737,A320 ... I think that 737 is the one that is closer to reality and systems coverage though.
  5. Hi people! I have been flying almost exclusively the A310 by IniBuilds, since it came out. Here are some of the shots i have taken of her. I have a thing with heavies so naturally she got my attention.
  6. For now it is only in the Marketplace. No issues for me buying from there. I don't know if it will come out elsewhere since it looks like they are avoiding piracy via Marketplace.
  7. Thank you. All these are from my MSFS setup. I have a free gallery on my sig where you can see and download original sizes of them.
  8. From top to bottom: LGAV,NZGT,NZWN all payware for MSFS
  9. For me nothing is missing. Just the buildings are not "close to their real counterparts" and they are more generic buildings, but they are not missing. MSFS without Photogrammetry is like running our old sims with Photoreal everywhere and buildings autogen. I fly airliners more than VFR but i do not feel that i am missing anything. Now the photogrammetry that affects performance in MSFS "seems" to come from the photogrammetry that is added from World Updates and not all photogrammetry. Deleting the photogrammetry from the World Updates and leaving photogrammetry ON from General->Data option improves the performance as it would when you disable Photogrammetry all together. This suggests that something is wrong with World Update PG. BUT after so many years i am getting too old to spent my time adjusting FS, i disabled all PG and i am a happy man. Metrics: PG ON, FENIX A320, KBOS payware: FPS 24 PG ON, PG World Update deleted, FENIX A320, KBOS payware: FPS 41 PG OFF, PG World Update deleted, , FENIX A320, KBOS payware: FPS 41 I can now maintain 30 Locked FPS anywhere with VATSIM heavy traffic.
  10. Well the new update of the Fenix A320 with the combination of me disabling Photogrammetry gave me the breathing room i needed to enjoy it to the fullest.
  11. The new HondaJet for MSFS is quite good. At least it made me put CJ4 and TBM in the hangar. It has some quirks but they are being worked on. The one that annoys me is the tendency to mess up the lateral ILS interception, although i think it comes from Asobo / WT G3000.
  12. ... but here i am. Descending to Corfu LGKR Arriving at Ushuaia Over Greece Landing at Athens new Scenery for MSFS Landing at Chania LGSA RWY11
  13. There are some guides in order to force it.
  14. Yeah just confirmed it quickly.DX12 introduces stutters and fps drop in general for me.
  15. Lets wait for the people who will test the DX12 option and report performance...
  16. I cant figure out how i would setup the tool to only use it for online flying on VATSIM. I only need the models somehow and vPilot to recognize them. Is there any good folk around here to just explain the tool workflow? I have understood that i don't have to use the traffic injector if i only need VATSIM, but that means that i should download ALL airline flightplans?
  17. "an updated weather system, early access to DX12, and a dev mode replay system"... That's nice...Fingers crossed.....
  18. Don't be mislead by the average CPU usage. You can have 35% usage on your CPU but if you look to your threads usage you will certainly see one of them around 80-100%. If this happens then it means that MSFS is limited by its main thread, meaning you will start seeing performance drop in areas of MSFS that are CPU-bound, and that would mean probably stutters. On the other hand, flight simulators are a different kind of beast and all these years i was always extremely happy if i could maintain 40-50 constant FPS... In P3D i was aiming for 30FPS constantly. When i got them then i configured P3D to run smooth at that FPS. The key term in flight sims are not FPS but smoothness. I do not see any bad decisions regarding your rig. What you need to do is to methodically dedicate a couple of hours to adjust MSFS and find the compromises you need to do according to your way of flying. I also saw people saying that Clouds are part of performance drop. In my case this is not an issue as i tend to see little difference with or without cloud coverage. And that is another proof why there is not a common solution for MSFS performance issues. You need to read / ask / get advice and dedicate some time. Maybe you could start a thread only for that and ask for opinions during your course of actions.
  19. I thought that 16GB were enough until i changed to 32GB and noticed more "breath" form the whole system. Less stutters (although stutters tend to be CPU bound), more fluid-like feeling. I was with i7-8700k@5.0Ghz, 16GB RAM, 1070 8GB and went to i7-8700k@5.0Ghz, 32GB RAM, 1070 8GB and finally to i7-8700k@5.0Ghz, 32GB RAM, 3070 8GB. Since then i have noticed that the system is using the available memory. I have seen up to 26GB RAM usage from MSFS alone! Although you can safely run MSFS with 16GB RAM, certainly you should consider 32GB. It will give your machine the breathing room it needs. In fact, personally i decided against upgrading CPU and will wait for the 12th gen Intel lineup, mainly because 11th gen Intel's did not convince me at all and a the same time 8700k@5.0Ghz works really well... I am able to get constant 40FPS min right now with ultra in 1440p and the limiting factor for a constant 50-60FPS is the CPU, but anyone in flight sim world knows that constant 40FPS in MSFS/P3D etc should make you extremely happy 🙂
  20. That's true, but i also use linker to avoid CTDs by enabling just what i need for every flight. It was a moment when having everything enabled rose up the rate of CTDs for me.
