  1. Helicopter Simulation and Flyjsim's B727 and B732 is the only reason I fire up my XPlane. A high fidelity B727, hopefully with a Super27 variant will be an instant buy.
  2. Anyone experience serious lag with instrument display, autopilot and autothrottle in flight? first flight 1.2 hours long no issue. On my second flight at about 50mins in, it looked liked the plane was flying at 5fps while the sim was running at 30fps for like 5mins then went back to normal. serious lag with tuning autopilot knobs, PFD/ND refresh rate really laggy, autopilot and autothrottle laggy and unresponsive but plane and sim flying smoothly at 30FPS. Very strange stuff.
  3. Will they be charging another $14.99 for the "flyable virtual cockpit" when it gets done?
  4. Its the Leonardo's MD80 series and PMDG's 737 series for me, and anyone else other than CS that makes a 727.
  5. HI, I have been having severe stutters as well. started a few days ago. I would see my frame rates drop from a stable 30 with 60% GPU load to 5 FPS and GPU load constantly fluctuating from 0-60% after about 30mins of startup or randomly inflight. Today, I set up the PMDG BBJ at gate D41 from Flytampa EHAM. Finished aircraft setup, bush-back with GSX and taxied to RWY 18L with no Issues. As I turned to line up for departure on 18L, the stutters started and wouldn't go away. I knew the flight wasn't going to happen so I might as well troubleshoot. max Vram usage was about 5.7/7.0. am running a RTX2080S with 16Gb on I9-9900K. stable Overclock 5.0Ghz Findings so far: Changed aircraft position to DNAA (default Scenery) rwy 04. stutters remain. Changed Aircraft to "Sikorsky S-70A Black Hawk IDFAF". Stutters go away. FPS locked at 30, gpu picks up load. Changed Aircraft position back to EHAM D41. sim still smooth no stutters. Closed P3d after that. ( didnt want to tempt P3D with a device hung error by loading up PMDG again at EHAM with 5.7/7 Vram) It happened before and I closed/ended active sky, P2ATC, linda, navigraph Simlink and all external processes attached to P3D and it kept on stuttering really bad. so I concluded it must be from the sim itself. Am guessing at my end, its either the PMDG aircraft or some files may be missing or corrupted from the sim. I'll re-install content and client installers and try again. If anyone has any bright ideas other than re-installing please let us know. Thanks
  6. Same Experience hare as well. Got myself the PMDG 737 Cargo variant, as well as a couple of European airports from orbx and I have been having a blast this holiday. I cant remember when last l launched MSFS, and I don't think I will for the near future. Really looking forward to XP12. But for now am having a 60FPS blast on 4K with my beloved 2080s and I9-9K with V5.3 HF1LF. FPS disclaimer ( at stock airports and in cruise )
  7. Same problem here. took off from DNKN with 6000M visibility, Landed at DNAA with visibility reported as 4500M. Sim showed the 6000M at DNKN, gradually became unlimited during departure and remained unlimited until landing, with the reported 4500 visibility only appearing 20mins after landing. EA on.
  8. I find my eyes getting tired a lot quicker with the PMDG 737 on P3D. Maybe its the slightly blurry displays or dull lighting or maybe am just getting old, but I don't have that problem with the Majestic Q4 on P3D or any other Sims. just looking at the screenshots, I can tell that the General brightness/ lighting and sharper displays of MSFS can keep me staring at the screen for hours without any fatigue.
  9. No proper visibility simulation in the sim. Been having poor visibility in West Africa due to Dust haze for the last couple of days, but it always CAVOK in the sim. Meanwhile AS/MS swears by Aerosol Density, it's there to fix all our visibility issues. 🙄
  10. With Vehicles constantly roaming around in MSFS, it would be nice if AS uses one of them as a follow me Vehicle.
  11. Thanks for the Update. A few things i've picked up with the recent version. - CRS 2 knob does not change VOR 2 course when in VOR 2 display mode. Both CRS 1 and CRS 2 knobs can change VOR 1 Course. - COM 2 receive Button toggles VOR 2 on/off. -Weights on the perf page don't add up to indicate proper ZFW or TOW. It shows 190lbs per pax where the default weight reads 170lbs. - Approach speed page is blank, after putting in landing data.
  12. X-plane 11, where I happily run 60FPS on 4K with Vulcan😏. Welcome to the club.
  13. It seems the ATIS isn't fully connected to the weather engine. winds on the ATIS don't match actual winds displayed on the PFD. clouds have always been the same generic 3 layers. only the pressure seams to be correct. Yet another vital feature overlooked by AS. In fairness to AS, they are a game studio and not an aviation software development company, so i can understand their priorities. Am sure they are having to learn alot as they go along.
  14. My plan and thoughts as well. All future upgrades will be towards a GPU. Good thing there isn't much of a difference between Gen3 and Gen4 PCIe. so my board is also good to go for the foreseeable future.
  15. I would agree on not being in rush to update CPU. just like has been mentioned in a few forum threads, my 9900K sits idly by with about 30% overall utilization, while my 2080S is close to maxing out on a 4K display. My best bet will be to upgrade to a 3090 since the GPU seems to be the bottle neck in my case.
