  1. Same issue here, without any tweaks or addons, everything is vanilla. Completely unusable after the latest patch, even after restarting the sim.
  2. This is great news. I am quite confident in what they are doing, but why do I smell that future world updates (regional updates with some handcrafted airports, landmarks etc) will be sold as DLC? Certainly there is a lot of work and costs involved, including handcrafted airports from a 3rd party dev. It would be very pleasing if they would update the whole globe like that for free, but I don't think it is going to happen, as much as I wish it would. Nonetheless, the world as it is now is already looking terrific and way more than acceptable despite a few flaws. More than happy about the progress.
  3. My FPS have increased from 20 to 25 at EDDF in the 787 and I have less stutters. Also, guys, THERE ARE POWERLINES NOW! AT least, that's what I just witnessed while touring around ELLX.
  4. Currently I am fiddling around with Facetrack NOIR but there are still some glitches that make it hard to smoothly track my face. How does this app compare?
  5. While I am really happy for all the Airbus folks here, I am wondering if there are any plans on a similar project regarding the 747 and especially the 787?
  6. Also impressed with the sounds. Not only the engine sounds, but also how the environments, instrument switches etc. sound.
  7. For me HDR does not seem to work 100% of the time. My monitor is a BENQ EX3501R which supports HDR and with other games (i.e. Ori and the Will of the Wisps) it works flawlessly. It only seems to get enabled when I ALT + TAB in and out of the sim somehow.
  8. I have not flown for hours yet to see how far up memory usage goes. How much VRAM do you have? Note that if your GPU does not provide enough VRAM, your physical memory will be used to complement graphics memory.
  9. Also confirm no crashes at all with 16GB RAM. At my native resolution of 3440x1440, memory usage is about 8-9GB, high-end setting.
  10. Absolutely agreed. Today's kids have way too high and unrealistic expectations and there is a great number of them who are quite misinformed, judging by some threads I have seen here and on steam. I was hyped for this sim and am still blown away by how good it performs, looks and flies, despite the lack of some features and the presence of bugs. A milestone in gaming technology for sure. No reason for MS & Asobo to be let down by all the negativity, they have done a fantastic job IMO.
  11. Same, the launcher crashed at 391MB left to download... Now it won't continue.
  12. So the content manager crashed at 391MB left to download... Fired it up again and now it's stuck at "Please wait". How long does this take?
  13. Yeah it's just sad. I mean, I used to fly in FSX and P3D with tons of graphical improvements and absolutely loved it. But I admit that none of these improvements, except for some 3rd party scenery, come close to what we see in this new stock sim. Everyone, enjoy your sim, but don't bash on what others are going to enjoy in a few days.
  14. If similar performance with a 1440p ultrawide will be achievable in the final build I will be more than happy. Edit: Could you please do a fly-over at NYC in the 747-8 for example (same settings) and report back on frames? That would be a good performance test. Oh I see it's not your video.
