  1. The point I am trying to make is that MSFS isn't complete per se, but the quality of the airports are great compared to other simulators. Wait until it's been ironed out before you spend anymore money on it. So far all the 'airports' being dumped into MSFS are ports (In my estimation) and being charged a premium for a few extra blades of grass.
  2. Are people actually buying scenery and airports for FS2020? I can't recall any airport that I visited that wasn't wonderfully rendered. Granted there may be obscure airports out there that may not have everything, but look at what their doing now. Japan has been completely revamped, detailed airports and scenery. Asobo and MS are going to continually develop this platform and update scenery and airports and regions. Can't understand why anyone would spend a dime more than what your already paid for the software. I guess there is a sucker born every minute. Aircraft on the other hand? Different story, but it's also possible they may flesh out the stock aircraft over the years ... stay tuned.
  3. Pardon my ignorance, but what is FSGRW? I have SMP with RWC, now they are saying its compatible with FSGRW. Exactly how many weather programs are necessary and/or needed in XP? In Prepar3D I have AS2016 + ACA, so I guess I that means I have a weather injector and texture replacement. I'm just a little confused on what I need for the XP side. Would love to try ASXP, but is that all I need? Thanks
  4. I would argue that for those with the higher end hardware, LM should have settings/sliders etc. for those options. You can just as easily turn it off if you neither need it or want it on. If all these tweaks are viable and usable and even sanctioned by LM, why not add them to the options. I would rather have that then constantly edit the CFG file.
  5. I would read the fine print - Cloud replacement isn't going to be out until Q4 2019. This release will use native XP Clouds. https://hifisimtech.com/forums/showthread.php?10166-Development-News-Update-November-2018
  6. Post a ticket with PMDG and/or hope there are further replies.
  7. I agree, but we don't know what they got up proverbial sleeve either.
  8. I feel your pain brother, it's shouldn't have to be that way. I spend hours configuring aircraft CFG files because someone thinks it funny to have a default zoom of .30 on all views (1.0 people … 1.0!). Don't get me starting on the naming conventions for the aircraft call sign list. Majestic and Aerosoft completely bork that file on each of their aircraft. Generaly if it's not broke, I don't fix it. v4.4 might be better in some ways, but it's mostly eye candy and lighting and blah, blah. I'm waiting for the core sim to be fixed. I have a high end CPU and HIGH end graphic card, GSYNC, VSINC and just Plain SYNC. I still get blurries after 20 minutes of flight on medium settings. It's nuts, PBR (for me) isn't a good enough reason to update IMO.
  9. Definitely not, I keep my sim pretty lean because of FPS issues (from what I'm reading it may improve with v4.4), no max settings, addons are limited to UTL and OrbxPeopleFlow. I disable these when doing an update. It's just a matter of changing the sliders back to where I want them, not that big a hassle, but beats a re-install. 😀
  10. Please make sure that you not only uninstall ALL Prepar3D modules (Client, Content, Scenery etc.) from windows. But also delete all the LM folders on your drive (<user>\AppData\Local & Roaming, and In the Program Data if you truly want to do a clean-reinstall. I have yet to see any uninstall routine really and truly remove all traces of itself.
  11. Rob, I've have the same issue as Peter, it's not a matter of waiting for the shaders to rebuild, each and every iteration of P3D.VXX that has been released causes the sim to go straight to the default flight with a black screen (waited for 15 minutes). I can hear the engine running, no picture and no scenario startup. I have to delete all CFG files in all three LM Folders (AppData\Local & Roaming and in ProgramData) and restart the sim to get to the scenario screen. This occurs on every update LM put out. Obviously this only happens to a small percentage of users, not sure what the commonality is between these systems, but that is the workaround I have to use to get any update to work. Unfortunate fact, but there it is.
  12. Blurries always load faster then crisp textures - lol j/k Looks great.
  13. Granted SimBrief is extensive and covers most aircraft, my contention was that if everyone used the same format, we could just generate the flight plan in the sim and it loads in the plane, no need for multiple downloads or external flight planners no matter what 3rd party aircraft you use. 3rd Party software would be much more cohesive if everyone used the KISS method. Again, just my opinion and don't want to detract from what the OP is discussing.
  14. Thank God Windows 7 still works with my I8700K - Once the dust settles in 2020 I might think about upgrading.
