  1. I think the phrase "look before you leap", rather apt in this instance. 😜
  2. Start the update by going to the app store first, once that updates start the sim. Once the sim has finished updating and loaded go to Profile/Conent manager and download everything that needs updating, once that has finished go to marketplace/ free and download the USA update (4GB). Then go fly.
  3. The way I read it, was that this is a problem with DX12 and affects all applications. I think the programmers are working on the assumption that vRam in general is on the up and so will not affect that many users. DX11 was programmed in such a way that was not possible to overfill vRam, this was obvious in P3D once they made the switch to DX12. I think the API using sys Ram is generic with all of the API's.
  4. Without knowing what adjustments the devs made I can't explain to you why they could look perfect. My experiance with all builds has been, sometimes they look great and other times they look s***.

  6. That's not totally correct, DX11 allocates i.e. once your vRam is full DX11 stops allocating. DX12, on the other hand, just keeps filling the pot until it overflows and your GPU throws up a warning. So, yes, you do need a larger cache of vRam, but theoretically DX12 would still continue to fill the space until overflow occurs again.
  7. Did you miss the announcement that said the grainy clouds would not be fixed until they introduce DX12?
  8. Don't quote me, but I'm sure I read or heard that to process the entire Earth takes about 4 hours.
  9. You got that right, I run (until the RX6800 arrives) a GTX1060 6Gig, with 32GB it's as smooth as butter in most situations, the odd stutter in heavy cloud. With 16GB it's almost unplayable.
  10. If you block the update FS won't start.
  11. It works the same, just skip to the phase of flight you reload into.
  12. You need to update Windows 10, I'm on 20H2 now, OS Build: 19042.572. If you don't update Windows FS will not start
