  1. Hi, I have recently bought 2 fly-tampa airports and have had exactly the same problem - old airports still in FSX and when I add them to the scenery library they then disappear. I managed to cure this yesterday - I used the flytampa uninstaller to remove them and then re-installed. I only uninstalled and re-installed the airports, not the addon manager. This worked for me - hope it does for you.
  2. Hi, I have just tried Heathrow, weather - Building storms, every slider maxed and LOD radius changed from 4.5 to 9 and i get about 15 fps (still looks quite smooth) . At Innsbruck on same settings I get 25-30 avg fps System is i5-2500k, 3.3ghz, o/c to 4.5 ghz, gtx 970, 8gb ram, 2560 x 1440 resolution. Hope this helps

    I see there is a minimum spec for a PC on Steam but can you advise on a recommended spec? Thanks.

    As one of those that moaned at the delays I feel I should comment - was a nice surprise to log on and see the announcement - also impressed with the sample video clip - looks as good as I was hoping. Looking forward to trying it in a few weeks time.
  5. I think its not the case of a couple of days, it is just that the deadline repeatedly gets put back.
  6. Upgrade opinions needed

    Hi all thanks for the comments I decided to go for the. Gtx 970 and 8 gb of 2133 memory and the results are good. Before the upgrade I saved a test flight at orbs redding airport with almost slider maxed, ut2 and active sky next running with a 2560x1440 resolution and I got an fps of 12 after upgrade you am getting 30 GPS and very smooth running. I did a similar test with assetto corsa and went from 12 to 50 GPS. Very impressed.
  7. Upgrade opinions needed

    Thanks, how much difference do you think this will make given that FSX is more CPU driven? Happy to pay the money but want to be sure it will make a difference.
  8. Hi all, I have considering upgrading my system which is below. It currently runs FSX quite well but I want it to run even smoother - suggestions please. Note - I have not listed my hard drives as I am not too worried about upgrading to an SSD to improve loading times - as far as I understand an SSD will not make it actually run faster. Motherboard - Asus P8P67 Processor - i5-2500K (Sandy Bridge) o/c to 4.5 ghz Memory - 8GB Corsair @800mhz Graphics - AMD Radeon 6970 2GB OS - Win 7 Home Premium 64 bit Thanks.
