  1. I had this debate with myself recently when I wiped my windows and do a fresh reinstall. After seeing several articles and tests show that windows 11 performs slightly worse in games and photo/video editing apps than 10, I decided to just stick with windows 10.

    The heck it was. Probably one of the most polished aircraft in the sim. I think you're the only person I've seen say that.

    Maybe I’m missing something then… me and the only other buddy I have that uses the sim both get poor performance with it and we’re both underwhelmed. We had  looked forward to it, used it a few times, put it back in the hangar and it’s been there since. Same with their sceneries, bad performance and poorly optimized. There’s a reason they are able to rush out every product they’ve ever touched.

    Interesting note about road traffic, perhaps I should try it as well. 

    PS. RTX9090 won't help you guys. Many sceneries are still CPU-depended, so learn how to oc your CPU to 5.5-5.6

    Rare to get to 5.5+… Most of us are happy to OC in the 5.0-5.3 range. And even then, it doesn’t help much with sceneries that are poorly optimized. The best thing that’s ever happened for the sim hardware IS the RTX4080/90. Overclocking my CPU to 5.0 saw a few frames more. Putting the 4080 in my system saw more than a 100% improvement. So yes, overclocking can help marginally, but it’s not the solution to one developer who is notorious for poor performing sceneries. FlyTampa KLAS is better quality and includes the entire strip and I don’t see a measurable drop in performance with that.  

  4. I don’t know. I get the frustration on delays when you’re looking forward to something, but this community makes it hard for any dev to win. Everyone throws a fit when they hear “soon” or “it’ll release when it’s ready”. So they give a release date of when it’ll drop IF everything continues to go as plan, then something comes up that was unexpected so it gets pushed back, and then the community gets mad at that too. 

    Maybe just count on it not happening when they say, so if it does, it’s a nice surprise. If not, then no harm no foul. Besides, I wouldn’t think this product is big enough to miss out on work or  extra income for… (no offense REX!). But that’s just my opinion, to each their own!

    I agree. Ai is not the answer. Automated systems designed for pilotless flying is though. The only reason this is a debate is becaue aircraft manuafactures have to design aircraft systems for pilots. If pilots were out of the equasion right from the beginning of aircraft design and manufacturing, not only would it be safer, ( over 90% of fatal accidents are pilot error) it would far cheaper for airlines to operate and consequently for us to travel.

    So why not automate every potentially dangerous job? Oh that’s right, because a HUGE chunk of the population would be jobless. AI is not the solution. And it’s funny to think that would make it cheaper for us to travel. All it means is the management gets richer. When has a company EVER cut prices because they found a cheaper way to do things?

  6. As said before, it’ll only be inevitable if we allow it. Which honestly, it seems to me like the majority of people these days are too lazy to care about anything or at least do anything other than complain. Just sit back and let others dictate how our jobs go, our lives work, etc. while the CEO’s get richer and unemployment stays up. How many thing will everyone let be taken from them just because it’s “inconvenient” to do something? Where do we draw the line? There is a place for AI, but a cockpit is not that place. AI is suppose to HELP us, not replace us.

    With all the extra frames we have to spare these days, who cares? 

    Those of us who don’t have 30fps to spare… which is the majority of users. 

    And the argument with Ferrari (niche/minority) doesn’t work. Does Honda (majority/masses) waste their time trying to push the envelope with high tech fast cars, or do they put their focus, energy, and money on what the majority of their customers uses and needs are? Besides, I’ve got a 4080 myself and even I don’t always have 30fps to give up 😒
