  1. Guru3D posted MSFS Hardware benchmarks. https://www.guru3d.com/articles-pages/ms-flight-simulator-(2020)-the-2021-pc-graphics-performance-benchmark-review,1.html
  2. I read this recently about the F35. July 2020. https://www.forbes.com/sites/davedeptula/2020/07/20/f-35-problem-child-or-on-track-for-success/?sh=7cfdfbe15d14
  3. Ideal Flight Professional also provides the facility of starting at the airport where you landed. It can provide a list of airports based on search criteria and allow you to pick your next destination from it. Flight Plans and host of other material are provided. Might be worth a look.
  4. Hello, 1. Start positions can be modified in a Fast Mission but would require knowing a little bit about the editor to move your airbase starting location. Basically once the mission is created, you can find your plane at airbase selected, then click and drag your plane to the airbase you want to fly from. If you do that you might find yourself far from the action, so to avoid that, in the fast mission selections menu, pick a start position on the map that is close to the airbase of your choice, you'll probably get that airbase automatically. If not then as mentioned in the editor before you fly, click and drag your flight to airbase. Instant action I can't comment on. 2. Without mods I don't think you can display current weather or METAR. So best guess here is to look for a mod that will provide weather briefing. if you flying someone's custom mission, it is sometimes standard to include weather details in the briefing. Custom mission design allows you to set weather to your liking. 3. What you want is: Show Controls Indicator 4. Don't know how to modify trim behavior. 5. For carrier ops (USS Stennis is provided : Add Ship Group in editor) you are going have to get into using the editor. Something like: Create your fast mission. Then instead of flying, click edit mission. Now in the editor add your carrier, then as in #1 above click and drag your plane overtop the Carrier you added. If you picked Start from runway it should snap to over the carrier. Now click fly mission in the editor and you have customized fast mission. Caveat. The Fast mission didn't provide an F-18 selection for me. If that's the case then create you mission using a different aircraft type , drop on carrier and then you can edit the aircraft type in the drop down on the right to select the F18. Once you get comfortable in the editor you'll be able to customize to your hearts content. Mike
  5. Riva Tuner Statistics Server -- a graphic utility to manage video card settings, performance testing etc.
  6. You'll find the setting in the Cloud Options of AS. P3D low cloud offset adjustment.
  7. Thanks John for sparking a fond memory. Growing up in SLC and had a very good high school friend, who was then leading a project at E&S that simulated the F4 Phantom. He granted me the opportunity for a grand tour of the facility. (Middle to late 80's if I recall correctly.) Anyway, I got the grand tour including a demo flight albeit at a keyboard, not in the dome which was being serviced. They were toying with projection in the helmets (VR back then I guess) but settled with the dome due to other constraints. Also got to view some video promo material of their current work that blew me away at the time. I was already into simming (Spectrum Holobyte Falcon on Amiga or earlier 8088s) and found myself wishing for something similar in my home. I can say that day has arrived when playing my favorite desktop flight sims. Late 80's E&S looks a little dated and wouldn't fit in my home anyway. Mike
  8. Your symptoms are just what I experienced with a CPU failure due to a different root cause. (Video Card came unseated from Mobo - frying CPU). Even down to the Error Code 00 though I have a Asus X99 Deluxe 2 board. Went through all of the steps above, replacing PS, trying Intel Video. New CPU fixed it up.
