  1. I don't have any other controllers plugged in, only the joystick. Yes, trimming is always an option, however not in ultralights for example. I bought Asobos latest Top Rudder Solo 103 and even at full throttle I have to keep constant backpressure on the joystick otherwise it will nosedive in to the ground. Is this realistic behaviour? I thought sufficient airspeed+lift=positive attitude.
  2. Thanks for the advice, however, it didn't make any difference. Still pitches down.
  3. This is driving me nuts and keeps from wanting to fly the sim. In any aircraft I get a slight downpitch which leads to having to constantly trim just to keep aircraft level. In aircraft i.e microlights, it's worse since they have usually don't have trimtabs. I have to constantly have joystick backpressure just to avoid diving in to the ground. I've tried everything, resetting controller profiles, calibrating in windows, tried 2 different controllers, TM 16000 and Logitech Extreme 3D Pro but they are both exhibiting the same behaviour. In FSX, P3D and X-Plane 11 I have NO issues at all. Maybe I've missed something obvious like if FS2020 has a total different way of simulating flight physics. It's just that I'm so used to, for example, trim my A2A Cherokee with the thottle alone which I thought was quite realistic. In FS2020 however, aircraft are practically glued to the runway at even high airspeeds due to the downpitch problem. It's really bad, please help.
  4. Yeah, on the flipside you are now limited by vram which is untweakable. I'd rather fight fps than vram because you have a hard limit on vram, with fps you can always compromise.
  5. Ok guys, I might just try it out. Thanks for all the input.
  6. Thanks for the input Nyxx but I do believe you get better details with 4k textures on an actual 4k screen. You would have to zoom in an awful lot on an aircraft on a 1080p monitor to appreciate the difference between let's say 2048 textures and 4096 textures.
  7. Thanks for your input guys, no need for 4k textures on my 1080p monitor. Torsen, do report back on your flight, if you ctd or not 🙂
  8. So I really want to get the FlyhtemaddogX for P3Dv5 since I'm upgrading to that platform as well soon but when I read that the MINIMUM vram requirements are 8gb I quickly hesitated since I only have a GTX 1660 super 6gb card. It really is asking a lot from users to buy 8gb+ graphics cards just to use certain add-ons and I won't upgrade my gpu for at least a year or so. If one were to use the MaddogX in 1024 texture resolution with only active sky and not other add-ons, would it be possible to use a 6gb card only? Does anyone have experience with the MaddogX in P3Dv5 using only a 6gb card? Any feedback would be useful. Cheers!/Andreas
  9. This I think https://secure.simmarket.com/sim-bit-world-sibiu-international-airport-lrsb-p3d.phtml
  10. Thinking about getting the Flysimware Falcon 50 or their Lear rendition, which do you guys recommend
  11. W What I meant was that of course people will see performance improvements when they go from a totally add-on burdened old install of P3D to a completely fresh add-onless install. "Amazing! my sim runs so well withouth 876 add-ons installed to it!" lol!
  12. I love it when there's a new P3D release/update and everybody goes "ooo!" and "aaaa!" about the performance when running a clean P3D install without add-ons. Whilst on the subject of performance, water rendering has apparently been optimized a bit, according to the release notes, so that's good I guess.
  13. You don't have to do anything, Microsoft are already distributing software updates through Windows Update to mitigate these issues. If you're on Windows 7 or 10 you're probably already updated.
  14. Sign me up on that one too.
  15. Yes but it only seems to affect pre-Bulldozer (FX-series) CPU's, Athlons and Turions etc. You should have written "Meltdown updates bricking older generation AMD PC's!". Otherwise people might get it wrong and think it affects the newer AM4 platform which it doesn't.
