    PMDG Announced Global Flight Operations at FSE 2018

    Well im going to say it. I think this is a fantastic idea and have been waiting for something like this for a very long time. The immersion is broken for me because it doesn't matter who, what or where I fly on my own. But this creates a level of responsibility as you are taking something that other people will see and use. And having a dispatch with routing, fuel etc takes that aspect of the work out of it which i dread doing. Yes i know about simbrief, pfpx all the good toys. But IRL, you dont do all of that and I just want to fly the plane and check out the scenery.
  3. Gysnc is probably one of the best technologies to come around in the past decade. It has no effect if your sim is running 30 fps, but for 40-120 fps it has completely eliminated screen tearing and latency.

    About "Lua"

    No thats about it. LUA is a scripting language so when you drop a file into that scripts folder, the compiler see its, compiles and runs. Its no different than any other language like c++, only much simpler.

    QW787 P3Dv4 - first impressions?

    @w6kd Ok, fair arguments. Apologize for my negativity. Is anyone out there enjoying the aircraft or have some constructive feedback outside of my complaining?

    QW787 P3Dv4 - first impressions?

    You are comparing apples to oranges. A "high tech company" is a lot different business model then 4 or 5 guys developing software. Listen, im done speaking on the topic. As it stands I do not feel that it is a $70 product and will not be buying. Thats my choice, you all can do what you want. Just understand if you continue to pay these prices, stop complaining about the high cost especially when buying broken software. I have seen it time and time again, the push to get the software out the door, influx of cash and eventually see you later. It happens in all software not just flight sim.

    My point was, developers are creating aircraft at the $30 price point and with every release are trying to one up the previous price. This is a general statement and not saying QW should be a $30 aircraft. But yes the crj is a prime example.

    QW787 P3Dv4 - first impressions?

    I just reinstalled P3d V4.2 in preparation for this aircraft. My daily driver is X-Plane, but this excited me. Just for a bit of background, I am a computer science major and well aware of software development practices. However, releasing this product at a $70 price point is ridiculous. Every single game, whether or not they spent 200 million dollars making it, releases at $60. Here is a specialized product, which i get. But to release a broken product with issues that have been around for months is BAD BUSINESS. As others have mentioned, no software is ever truly finished because software is constantly evolving. But developers trying to follow PMDG lead are mistaken. These prices with the level of quality is not sustainable. I am disappointed with the price points being set for software reaching higher and higher, yet the quality of the products are not necessarily any better. This is a major problem and should be addressed.
  9. Anything from aerobask wont disappoint, i have 4 of their aircraft and they are my daily flyers.
  10. This is a well written review:
  11. Another overpriced addon from x aviation that will hopefully be replaced by something better.
  12. For the push back tug, I would recommend the freeware plugin Better Pushback. It allows you to preselect the pushback path exactly where you want and it will automatically take over.
  13. Yes @ryanbatcund. Running anything at max ram/vram is going to cause problems. When panning around, your loading in new textures and since your available ram is gone, it has to be switched in. Keep in mind 7.5 of 8 gb should be considered full. There are reserved spots in the memory that cannot be accessed. Also, it may request a memory block larger than any space available.

    video performance xplane 11

    Ok yeah I guess it's a limitation of xplane then. I have the 4770k over clocked to 4.4 ghz with 16 gb of ram and gtx 1080. I am definitely cpu limited. Btw moving from gtx 450 to a 1060 is not just a x50 series to x60 @kneighbour. It's a 4 generation leap which means it's about 3x more powerful and energy efficient. The gtx 1060 is a good choice for 1080p gaming @anitelite

    video performance xplane 11

    Right now with current hardware xplane might be more cpu bound? What cpu and speed are you using? Are you using any kinda HD mesh or is it default xplane scenery? There is a 100 different factors that can affect performance.
