  1. This is the most honest and accurate assessment I've seen on the subject.
  2. Absolutely agree. I’m doing the same. There’s room for all of them.
  3. As confirmed in other threads. The Black and white text that appears when you hover your mouse over items in the cockpit cannot be disables at this time.
  4. The UI is very bad amongst other things. The scenery is good but to me, it takes a lot more than that to make a great sim. I also wish there was a way to turn off the big text that hovers around when you try to click on cockpit objects.
  5. The crash still occurs periodically but fewer with this update. Lockheed has to address the VRAM usage issue because there is definitely an issue.
  6. https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4028685/windows-10-get-the-update check this link out. Let me know how it works for you.
  7. I figured out how to fix this. The issue is with windows in my case. Check to see if you have the Windows 10 2004 update. This update addresses Vram DX12 issues. I installed this update and P3D V5 no longer crashes with that error.
  8. I emailed him today. He says the new version of the AFM tool is coming shortly.
  9. These shots are stunning. I agree P3Dv5 is absolutely stunning. I look forward to seeing what can be done with the new tech.
  10. Beautifully said. I'm very happy with it. It's the foundation of a great sim for years to come.
  11. I agree. In Lockheed's press release, they indicated that P3Dv5 was laying the ground work for the next generation and they were committed to the platform. I think we will be overtime getting a product that may exceed MSFS2020. They're taking their time which they should. I'm completely happy with what we have now and will continue to support the platform. After all they saved us when MS abandoned us years ago.
  12. Trust me, Lockheed has indicated they are committed to the platform. I'd prefer to keep using Vatsim also. I'm sticking with P3D.
  13. After more research, I have to recant my statement regarding GSX. In my case the culprit was a process running in the background called, Killer Control Center. I have the killer NIC card. There's an issue with Windows 10 and the Killer control panel. It was causing the sim to micro stutter. I removed the process and it works flawlessly.
  14. I have the same issue and it appeared after a string of GSX updates. If I don’t activate any function of GSX, the micro stuttering does not appear. If I use the GSX pushback, etc, ill have micro stutters during pushback, taxi. The stuttering disappears during cruise. The stutter is unique as it’s a rythmic milisecond tick every 3 seconds. I have I7 9700k, RTX 2080, 32GB ram 8TB drive.
  15. As will I. I’ll purchase MSFS 2020 but I’ll continue to use my P3D and Xplane with VATSIM. My current set up is great and I, like you, will continue to support third party dev’s.
  16. When did RSR say it’s his way or the highway? I’m grateful for the products PMDG has developed. I think his stance is sound and business savvy. I read his entire response and what I gather is, he is simply waiting for more information.
  17. I used to run that Union station to Penn with the Acela over and over when I was a teenager.
  18. Agreed. I believe leaving it open sourced creates businesses for others and allows for even greater immersion. There are incredible people out there who have taken our hobbies to the next level with their forward thinking. I do think the basics should be covered in house, thus allowing greater expandability of the product.
  19. This would be marvelous, if indeed this was true...
