  1. that was gonna be my next question.. I am guessing this issue will show up in real life as well? slight pilot error in setting the throttles (one may be 0.5% to 1% more than the other) and this can cause slight thrust imbalance and yaw movement.. which pilot w'd counter with rudder input i guess... but before the speed picks up on the runway, the pilot would click TOGA which would then sync the levers more accurately than what a pilot can do manually.. this may be a bigger issue for twin turboprops that dont have TOGA.. if pilot has to manually advance both throttles, i'm sure they wd be a few % different from each other depending on how sweaty his palms are.. 🙂
  2. I have been using a saitek 3 axis throttle quadrant all these years.. it has served me well.. but looks like the pots are slowly wearing out.. when i fly twin engine planes with 2 separate throttle levers, i get different %N1 when i try to set the throttles independently.. I do have registered FSUIPC and tried to calibrate, but i am getting a mismatch in %N1 when i try to set the throttles.. so this results in some yaw motion (pilot induced) during takeoff and landing.. I'm getting a bravo quadrant in a few days (fingers crossed).. do any of you bravo owners face any similar issue? or is the bravo quite accurate in throttle setting.. i'm especially worried about 4 engine 747 pmdg.. are you guys able to set the throttle exactly the same on each of the 4 engines with the bravo? also side note - for 4 engine, are the throttles too far apart - i.e. can you push all 4 with your palm and get accurate throttle settings? thanks for your inputs..
  3. my thoughts exactly.. I think P3D 5.2 HF1 has been the best offering from LM so far.. I especially love having EA's lighting coupled with ASP3D weather engine and REX SF textures.. lethal combo.. plus I think stability is underrated these days.. whats the point of all that eye candy when the next forced update around the corner is going to wipe everything out? In P3D, I only fly over ORBX OpenLC regions with the best tubeliners into the best payware airports, with the best AI (thanks AIG) and the best ground services (thanks GSX, VDGS).. you can't beat P3D in widebody/longhaul experience right now.. and that's coming from a guy who loves XP11 !
  4. I have always been baffled by the people who uninstalled P3D and XP11 in a hurry and jumped lock, stock and barrel into MSFS.. now they're in turbulent waters with no way to return to firm ground..
  5. This is what I wrote on the MSFS forum to congratulate MSFS on its one year anniversary and to remind people that there are still people like me who are having an awesome time with the "old and stable" sims.. Happy B'day MSFS! This is a special day, as I thought last year, that I'll give MSFS one year before I uninstall the other sims and jump in.. but looks like its not ready for primetime yet (esp after SU5 mess).. not a problem.. I understand the growing pains every sim has to go thru.. I will patiently wait until GSX, AIG, PMDG & other big addons are brought in next yr to make it a full fledged sim.. In the meantime, I'm having a ball of a time with the old, but stable P3D V5 and XP11.. solid as a rock.. perform great.. all the best addons and aircraft at your disposal.. I'm actually buying some more addons for P3D.. I know, hard to believe.. but, I like the stability they offer and the variety of addons.. and there are no forced upgrades, and everything rests on my SSD for life.. so that's comforting.. I will re-assess after 6 months and see if I'm ready to take the plunge, but just wanted to say, quite contrary to popular opinion on MSFS forums - It is okay to enjoy the other sims while you wait.. it doesn't have to be either/or.. plenty of space in my SSD for all 3 sims to coexist into the future.. 🙂

  7. This usually happens in P3D.. what I do for long hauls is I save the flight before TOD and then quit the sim, restart and the FPS is back to its high original value.. This may have something to do with RAM or paging file, etc.. has been discussed a lot in P3D forums.. Now, you may not be able to do the same in MSFS because P3D is a very stable sim and the addons are also very mature and stable.. when I reload a flight in PMDG or QW787, the exact panel state is restored down to the tiniest detail of how I left each switch.. I doubt MSFS can do that now.. even XP11 can't do that (except for few planes like FF320 or Toliss).. I don't own MSFS, but I'm surprised by the similarity of FPS degradation.. maybe there's some deep rooted legacy code common to both the sims?
  8. Why are most of the skyscrapers missing in NYC in your video? was the photogrammetry turned OFF? the entire financial district is missing.. Is it an LOD effect?
  9. anybody else facing this issue?
  10. I reinstalled only the client btw. Maybe running fsdt live update might fix things.
  11. Has anyone tried gsx level 2 jetways with the new hot fix? I’m getting device hung error when I try to connect jetways. Have reverted back to previous version and gsx works fine now.
  12. If you wanna make the 3090 sweat, crank the EA cloud res to ultra. It will hit 100% and 80 deg in no time. It does the same with xenviro too. don’t know how it handles MSFS clouds since i don’t have that sim yet.
  13. You should see a drastic reduction in VRAM usage. FPS is mostly the same as before which was already pretty good owing to DX12.
  14. for me, when i'm panning in spot view, the fps drops from 60 to 45 for a second and then goes back to 60.. the stutter happens only when panning in spot view..
  15. I am very happy with 5.2 so far.. I reinstalled client and content only, not scenery.. everything seems to be working well.. VRAM usage gone down (not that it mattered since I have RTX 3090), and sim is better optimized than before.. DX12 was already awesome even in 5.1.. and new lighting reflections are awesome.. yes i did have the bugs that everyone is talking about (black screen, HTML bugs, GSX menu options, etc) and after following the workaround (renaming app html file), those issues are gone.. there was a stutter i got during touchdown yesterday, and now that's solved too after renaming fx_skidmark.. I just did traffic circuits with QW787 in FT EHAM with ORBX LC.. I was getting close to 60 FPS on final in the VC view.. that is pretty impressive for a sim that inherited its roots from FSX.. I remember back in my FSX days, getting low 20s flying into EHAM.. we have come a long way..
