  1. I never said Grass Monkey would be better, just cheaper. 🙂
  2. I have used Track IR 5 with a simple wireless baseball visor clip for years. It is a good piece of gear. If you want to check out grassmonkey simulations they make a similar system called Puck IR for about half the price if cost is an issue.
  3. Trees Schmeez ... Problem in EVERY sim. FSW which I use on the laptop has trees in sports stadium at Chicago if using DD Chicago X, Aerofly FS2 (and maybe 4) has trees on roads and this one has too many and too high. I do not remember if the Australia V2 add on fixed this in FSX or not, and I do not know about P3D and XP. Best thing is to take off and get up to 3-5000 feet and it does not look so bad.
  4. My machine is one that has two Video cards. The first is the Radeon Vega that is the one that handles most of the day to day laptop activities like email etc. The second is an Nvidia 1060 3gb one that is for games. I have updated my Ram now to 16gb but the video cards are not upgradeable unless I buy a better machine. I am thinking that if I do that then I will not have the fun of fiddling with it to get it to improve performance. Device name LAPTOP-Q39LISMC Processor AMD Ryzen 5 3550H with Radeon Vega Mobile Gfx 2.10 GHz Installed RAM 8.00 GB (5.88 GB usable) Device ID 50C04631-D709-485B-99E5-F74128045A46 Product ID 00325-81689-34537-AAOEM System type 64-bit operating system, x64-based processor Pen and touch No pen or touch input is available for this display
  5. Bit of a mental lapse on my part, I did not mean to use that as a title. If anyone knows how I can edit that or better still delete this thread entirely please let me know.
  6. For those who have a dual video card HP gaming laptop like me, what sort of frame rates are you getting on medium settings?
  7. I think that most of us are inveterate "fiddlers". With our sims especially. Tweaking and twisting, trying to see if this works or that. Good luck.
  8. Looking at the responses I think I should have phrased the OP a little bit differently. I was just musing over the total cost of all the add ons and whether or not anyone had actually bought them all. I did not mean to cast any aspersions on anyone regarding their financial status. I apologise for any offence. 😟
  9. This question arose from me logging into MSFS this morning and seeing the announcement that there are 700 products on sale in the market place! I got my little brain cell thinking .... 700 times ...... = ?
  10. I know there are some out there who are very rich but has anyone ever worked out the total cost of buying all MSFS add ons? I bought all the Orbx scenery for Australia/NZ but that is nothing compared to everything available. Are we dumb or what?
  11. A couple of times I have thought about getting an X Box. That way my grand kids would have something to play when they stay over too. I was wondering if I have the Steam MSFS whether it would play on the XBox or would I have to purchase another version specific to that platform? Also which model of the XBox would I need to buy from an MSFS point of view?
  12. Pity the Steam Deck is not available for you. That might have solved your portability issues.
  13. I suspect these updates are going to keep improving the sim to the point where it will not run on my system.
  14. I am sorry Jorge it was a silly attempt of humour on my part. No offence intended and as I said I agree with you that this sim is the best there is.
