  1. Am i missing something, or have ASOBO not included night apron lighting at airports and ramps? They have gone to such detail to add clutter and use AI to place buildings etc, but not to place flood lighting at the defaults?
  2. Yes, i have had very similar but only with airlines. I start at about 50FPS in say 787, after about 1-2 hours, im at about 16FPS and its absolutely a slideshow. its similar to a memory leak of some sort, but it could be something totally different.
  3. Its not bad, personally i think XPlane still does a much better job. i like the wind buffeting on GA aircraft, but if you set TO trim to the locations in the GA aircraft (I dont bother with the tubes, too broker right now) they rotate too fast, they dont climb out at the correct speeds etc, Its a decent attempt and im sure it will get improved.
  4. Lovely story, glad your having so much fun like us all. It really is nice to just get up and fly, I've explored more of the UK over the past two weeks than i have in a over a decade and a half of flying other sims! Lovely gesture from your wife, got to treat her now Graham!
  5. Considering paying customers can't even access the sim, this is what they are targeting right now, and rightly so. im thankful that i can enjoy what we have at the moment and not have to battle with constant CTD or even worse, not being able to launch it at all. I think once this is ironed out, we will see more of the core issues addressed.
  6. Don't know if this bothers anyone either, but the input lag into the head movement really bugs me, along with the wheel zoom scroll. Ive set the momentum to 0 and speed to 100% which helps a little, but I'd love to see a simple lag free pan
  7. God I love the media, all that is is bloody plastic to hide the insulation and the actual glass pane which is bloody thick and secured with fasteners to the fuselage! Also, its good to be back. 😎
  8. Dropping the price already says it all, trying to fleece people for an absurd amount, failing that trying to make any money on it.
  9. That's odd as I have no issues with road traffic, have you tried removing the preferences files and allowing xplane to make new ones?
  10. I run 1.5 supersample but run it through the occulus tray tool instead of steam. I also regularly fly zibo's 737 all around the place, i know its not the sharpest of images for the displays but ive never really had that much trouble with them, and m eager to see the improved 2nd gen! Ive fallen in love with the whole VR experience and cant wait until the hardware enables us to push clouds and traffic!
  11. Have exact same issue since a few patches ago, not found a solution as of yet
  12. I can confirm that oculus controllers are viewable in vr, would be good if they allow a laser pointer for some areas. I set the sim up where it runs about 100 FPS in normal mode, then switch to Vr, butter smooth, but then I get stutters and when I vacate Vr mode it then runs at about 35-40 FPS, can’t see why the performance is getting slammed when I come out of Vr
  13. Merry Christmas all! having a break from fixing real aircraft to fly some virtual ones that I've not had time for, oh and beer, plenty of beer!
  14. Ive been awaiting my oculus at Christmas, and was wondering if they would release it at Christmas as a treat! well done laminar! cant wait to try it out
  15. Thanks for the new mesh, looks amazing, not sure what links ive used to download but taking about 9 mins on average per area
  16. It's interesting to note that the fancase is designed to absorb the energy of a blade release, not multiple releases or in this case the whole bloody thing detaching. It's common of people think that the engine has to contain a turbine or compressor disk failure but the energy levels in these ruptures are just too great to contain, it's very fortunate that the hub and blades went under the engine and not over or toward the fuselage
  17. I personally use blu fx, the colour saturation adjustments can get your xplane very vibrant
  18. I work mainly on GE90 engines but have some experience on these GP7 engines, looks like the Fan hub has sheared off taking with it all the fanblades and most of the fan case. Total speculation but could either be a fatigue crack but not so likely given the size and thickness of the fanhub itself, or possibly some sort of faliure in the bolts that fix the fan hub to the front bearing cone.
  19. No its not default, but you can get all them packages off the org in about 10 minutes...for free. The surrounding scenery is the default though

  21. Yeah maybe I will make a suggestion or possibly they monitor this forum. Ah excellent!! I'll take a look at that, don't mind how I can adjust them
  22. Look in the video description- • Clouds: HD clouds and LUA script by Murmur (see post #87 + #88 on this page: http://www.avsim.com/topic/492132-clo..., optional try this link: http://tinyurl.com/gwrcszm) You may find the link to the files has expired, you should find the files here https://drive.google...bVJiYmliT3NoN28
  23. I'm using the clouds from this video, instructions are in the bottom, and totally free!
  24. It's beta. It's broken fps wise for most people, I have an i5 with a high clock 8gb of ram and a 1070 gtx and my fps caps at 19 with the current build, your fps will return give It a few builds
