  1. Seems there are issues after issues. Now, both 3rd party aircraft and default aircraft don't have right rudder. Really no clues why only right rudder which assigned to num pad key "Enter". The key is fine when typing in MS Words. I reset all the the controls to default but still no right rudder. Anyone experience this as well.
  2. I think my case is different, as there are clouds all over the sky but no matter where you change the airports, the clouds are all the same. It is like no weather program injected into the sim.
  3. I have no idea, I did client and content update, and installed and reinstall ASP4 full download version + beta 6616. The weather is just the same everywhere. Already filed a ticket to Hifi but still waiting for a response.
  4. After updating to its latest beta 6616, the weather is not working as only default weather is showing no matter where the airports are. Have tried to re-install several times but still not seeing any changes. Anyone experiences the same issue?
  5. Hi I'm trying to find out if mesh setting to 1cm will have an impact to the FPS. I have moved my setting from 5cm to 2cm due to using the FS global next 2018. Now I want to move to 1cm, will anyone tried to see a difference in the frame rate. What is the best mesh setting you recommend.
  6. Regardless what you highly value the product, it is not an overhaul at all, it is merely some improvement over REX, in some cases, REX softcloud is more realistic. Still, the SF clouds are old 2D clouds spinning around the aircraft and nothing new about it. In terms of structure, really don't a difference may be more textures but cannot tell what structural changes would be. When calling a revolutionary product, you should at least has something that completely change the game but just don't see right now. Maybe previous REX cloud textures are already very good.
  7. The price is also impressive with GTX 1080ti over $3999, I checked the spec don't find why cost so much even with a TI.
  8. right now seems all 1080 are over $600 which was unreasonable. The crepocurrency issus has been long. Why recently so high.
  9. Follow this question, anyone know why currently seems price of GTX 1080 or 1070 has been skyrocket.
  10. Just don't understand, Why gives all the sets but require us to manually pick one and installed in the simulator. In this way, I don't think lot of people would have the time to try and test each of the sets under multiple scenarios . Even they do try testing every sets, can they actually remember which set is better looking than others. Why can't SF work like ASAC to automatically select the textures from all the texture sets in one folder.
  11. you are right, none of those looks realistic enough to the real thing. The so called revolutionary change just does not happen. Maybe still waiting for SF more patches or AS provided next version.
  12. I understand ProATC could be better but seems still a lot of issues, but it is very complicated compare to Default ATC. On the other hand, Default ATC is very easy to instruct one from A to B, Also no SID or STAR Approach, you can pick it up where the route ends to fly your own STAR. I tried several tiems with ProAtc, it often gets discontinued during the flight if for some reason you didn't follow it precisely.
  13. Can Default ATC using the PFPX, otherwise, the route plan is not instructed by ATC and what's the point to use PFPX plan when following the ATC.
  14. I just feel the flight simulation development is still lagging behind other game categories. Looking at the external model of car racing games, the body, lighting, reflection, texturing, rain effect, tier smoking, are so real just like the real thing. But looking at the flight simulator, the lighting, the external model of the aircraft still looks like a 3D model. After a decade since the fsx 2004, the rain effect is still something simmers hopping to be integrated into the aircraft model. Not to mention other weather or ground effects. Not sure what causing the slow adaption of new graphic technologies, but it is truly a disappointment to the flight sim community.
  15. Hi, I really like Free Mesh X 2.0. However, I have experienced serious texture morphing issues as the land textures mixed with water and other landclass. I have tried to uninstall and reinstall orbx and FTX vectors but not helping. I would like to anyone can explain where I should place Freemeshx in the scenery libary. Currently I place it under Orbx airports and LC, but above Orbx Vector and default sceneries and cities. Please advise if this is correct. Thanks, Nic
