  1. I hope its a series of classic aircraft. B707, B727, B732/classic etc.
  2. I think the problem with clouds is not just unique to MSFS, X-plane is also struggling to get it right, and I think its because they all have one cloud rendering technique that they are trying to use to create the numerous cloud types and its not working or they haven't figured it out yet. Maybe that's why LM also did away with true sky for P3DV6.
  3. All that is left, is to merge Simbrief and Charts together and we'll have the ultimate flight sim addon.
  4. Not sure if its related, but I have had my Gigabyte 4090 stop displaying I.e screen goes dark but PC is still running either while running MSFS or just after running MSFS. Only started a couple of days ago and so far only with MSFS. Runs fine with DCS, xplane and P3D. Temps fine, no overclocking or under volting the card, everything at default. My best guess so far will have to be latest drivers causing the issues.
  5. And This also caught my attention. XPD-13853 - Improve accuracy of reported airport visibility with real weather. Testing now Full Change long below XPD-13857 - Sudden change in outside air temperature (causing pressure altitude to jump several thousand feet). XPD-13851 - X-Plane complains about broken DDS that previously loaded just fine. XPD-13853 - Improve accuracy of reported airport visibility with real weather. XPD-13843 - Only first of Custom Ground Trucks is recognized. XPD-13656 - From Bug Report: .FOR file with grass have shimering and transparency with a LOD enabled”. XPD-13848 - drawcall type data ref is not set correctly during `XPLMCustomizeAvionics_t` callbacks . XPD-13390 - Zink/Mesa is leaking staging memory. XPD-13285 - Zink on Linux. XPD-13284 - Allow fallback to the IHV driver instead of forcing Zink. XPD-13283 - Zink doesn’t correctly render UI plugins. XPD-13282 - Zink backend on AMD results in colours being rendered incorrectly. XPD-13472 - No longer able to: “Carry another aircraft” or “Be carried by another aircraft”.
  6. Cleared the output/weather folder to test latest public beta 12.04b2 loaded up sim at airport am 100% sure will be IMC. i.e low visibility Confirmed by METAR in the "metar-2023-02-17-15.30" file. 2023/02/17 15:00 DNKN 171500Z 06011KT 0250 DU VV/// 25/04 Q1016 BECMG 0400 Sim depicts broken clouds with 14.5Miles ~ 23KM visibility instead of 250Meters. winds, temperature and pressure okay. Visibility and cloud base still broken. Nope. Sim stored till the next weather update.
  7. Weather reports in METRIC units at all locations, with or without METAR,s. Ground vehicles and ground personal move away during engine start.
  8. Started out okay at my end this morning. Flew 100nm or so from departure airport into clear skies for the rest of the 600nm flight even though Satellite, METARs etc say there should be cloud. Other weather parameters seem to be okay just no cloud depiction.
  9. Found on MSFS Forums. Worked for me, hope it helps. Check that you don’t have MSFS open, if so, close it.Open the task manager (CTRL+SHIFT+ESC).Find the “Gaming Services” application and close it.Start MSFS and enjoy your flight, without having to reset it or restart the pc.
  10. correct and customizable units for ATC and weather. Ability to get weather from airfields without METAR reports.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. Will they be charging another $14.99 for the "flyable virtual cockpit" when it gets done?
  14. Its the Leonardo's MD80 series and PMDG's 737 series for me, and anyone else other than CS that makes a 727.
  15. 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
  16. 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 )
  17. 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.
  18. 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.
  19. 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. 🙄
  20. With Vehicles constantly roaming around in MSFS, it would be nice if AS uses one of them as a follow me Vehicle.
  21. 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.
  22. X-plane 11, where I happily run 60FPS on 4K with Vulcan😏. Welcome to the club.
  23. 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.
  24. 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.
