  1. There are some things that, after 4 years, I cannot believe MSFS cannot do or there is no solution for. Number one would be chaseplane or something of the sorts.... the other is multiple windows. By this, I mean having 2 or 3 windows open with different views. In P3D, I would have cockpit view as one and an exterior or wing view as the other. I haven't asked this question in a long while so I thought I would ask it again... is this possible now?
  2. Thanks all. I guess I jumped the gun too quickly and bought V6 when I already own V5! I just really dont love MSFS still... it looks great but some key things like chase plane, study level aircraft etc are still missing.
  3. When MSFS came out, I thought I was done with P3D. I never ended up loving MSFS. Almost 4 years end and the aircraft choices are just not good. Still no PMDG 777, etc. With space running out on my PC, I had to drop P3D. Santa brought me an additional 4TB for xmas, so I just purchased V6. My previous installs included pretty much every significant add on..... ORBX, PMDG, FSDT, chase plane, Active sky, etc etc etc. So, what are the must have these days? Has anything changed?
  4. basic, easily usable camera systems and the ability to have multiple windows open. FS2000 type stuff 🙂
  5. I guess with no responses, the answer is still no, lol. 2 of the main things I miss as compared to my previous MSFS/P3D life are the multiple windows and chase plane. These 2 brought a much better experience overall. Is there any hope here? I can't believe we are this many years into MSFS2020 and still cant do some simple functionality.
  6. Are the any programs that allow for multiple windows? internal view and external view, etc. Like the good ol' days...........
  7. I found a good profile for the bravo throttle quadrant but I am not sure on the Alpha yoke. Can someone recommend one that is fully mapped for the Alpha and PMDG 737?
  8. anyone used these for the honeycomb yoke and throttle? If so, is there a "dummies" guide on how to do this in MSFS?
  9. I check back on this every 6 months or so and there doesnt seem to be any improvement each time. Has there been a simple way to map the honeycomb products to fully function with MSFS, including the PMDG 737? Preferably a method that does not require a computer science degree?
  10. I asked this question over a year ago but I thought I'd ask it again. Is it possible to do multiple windows in MSFS? In P3D, I would have the cockpit view taking up about 2/3 of the screen and 1/3 with an external view - as separate windows. I have a 49" monitor so plenty of real estate to do this. Is this possible in MSFS?
  11. I am flying MSFS more and more..... even thought I've owned it since day 1, I still have not been able to let go of P3D. I now have all the REX products for MSFS and am doing some winter flying. What I found is that, unless the weather is actually snowing, the ground textures are still summer green. December 29th and clear skies? Green grass is what I get. Accuseason has taken care of the trees..... but what about the ground textures? Am I missing something here?
  12. I was just looking at some things.... was on approach into KORD recently and the textures had not fully rendered even on short final. Had me question what was going on. I looked through the nvidia overlay and CPU usage was about 20% whereas GPU was 80%-90%. What should this be normally? i9-12900k / RTX 3080ti
  13. I have a 12900K with an ASUS 3080ti and usually see frame rates in the 50-90 range when in flight and as low as 25-30 sometimes when starting a flight at a high end 3rd party airport in the PMDG 737. If I am flying around weather, I sometimes see FPS drop into the single digits for several minutes... perhaps 5 - 10 minutes. Usually on approach (coming back down into the weather). My internet connection is hard wired and have gigabit that runs as advertised from my provider.... not sure if this matters but I know this can impact things sometimes. Does anyone else experience this? Quite annoying as I had an approach recently with lower vis and clouds/fog almost to the ground. touched down and rolled out with it sitting around 5 FPS.... was a rough landing due to this lol.
  14. Is this still recommended these days? If so, what FPS is recommended?
