  1. It's been there for a while. Judging by a post in the Flightbeam forum the jury is still out whether or not it will even be a 2018 release.
  2. Awesome. I saw they were doing BIL and GEG but didn't see BOI anywhere. When was this announced?
  3. Try clearing your shaders. I used to get that problem with orbx global and openlc in some areas. Also make sure everything is ordered correctly in the scenery library.
  4. Nothing more frustrating than flying a 12 hour flight and butchering the landing
  5. I may have to take the plunge and get UTL. I have MT6 which works fine but the performance hit is pretty big for me. Without AI I can have my settings right where I want them even at large airports but I have to drop them a bit when I use AI. If there is little performance hit with UTL that would make me very happy.
  6. Also keep in mind that the larger the monitor the more AA you will need. I run a 40" at 4k an even 8x MSAA can have a fair amount of shimmering in the distance. It gradually decreases as I fly closer and looks great on the ground though. I'm on a 1060 so I'm also looking at upgrading to a TI in the future. I may wait until the next round of cards is released for a price drop since it's a high cost to just to be able to run SSAA and reduce shimmering.
  7. For me I only have 3 that I couldn't live without. The rest is all scenery or planes I fly less often compared to the NGX. ORBX - Global, Vector, and OpenLC make it look like a whole new sim to me ActiveSky PMDG NGX - Fly it a ton and love it edit: I forgot REX with softclouds. I've got a theme that I really like!

    Well I bit. Considering I paid $90 for the NGX if I use this even 1/3 of the time I do the NGX it'll be an ok buy for me.

    I'm really on the fence. I have a 6600k at 4.4 and a gtx 1060. I can run PMDG planes pretty well on my system but haven't tested any other planes since those are all I have for V4. I don't want to spend $35 just to find out performance is worse but I do want the plane. Hmm.
  10. Maintaining your monitors refresh rate with vsync on usually results in a smooth experience. I myself run it down to 25hz and as long as I maintain 25 FPS it's perfectly smooth. A lot of people have success with 30. Also London is a black hole for FPS. I have to back my settings off quite a bit when flying there to maintain reasonable FPS and I don't even use the ORBX region (but I do use global/vector and have Aerosoft EGLL).
  11. If your FPS is fluctuating a lot that might do it. Try locking your FPS to something you can always maintain and experiment with vsync on/off especially if you can run a monitor down to 30hz.

    I just did my first flight with msp and I love it. I've been waiting for a FB sale ever since it was released. The new updates for the others are fantastic as well.
  13. Yep I love it. I never flew in Europe until I got OpenLC so I'm not sure what it looked like before. I'm thinking of getting South America since it's on sale but I don't fly much there since there are few V4 compatible airports so I may wait.
  14. My mouse is a bit laggy as well but I've become pretty used to it. The panning isn't as smooth either but it's a trade off I'm willing to make until I get a better PC.
