  1. Looks like we're being given gentle hints not to fiddle with stuff, I guess... 😉 Let's hope we get this as an UI option at some point...
  2. For those with the "self-resetting" problem, make sure you edit the first occurrence of "EyeAdaptation" (in the "{Graphics" section). The entry is repeated below for VR and that is the one which keeps resetting. However, even if I make the edit "stick", I still see the adaptation effect in the sim... Weird...
  3. I'm sorry if that's an obvious thing, but have you logged on to your account within MSFS (and if so, did you use the same account)? I've had to reinstall once, but all my data was restored as soon as I'd logged on...
  4. Oh come on, guys, there's no need to be that snarky 😉 It's there, but not really done at a spectacular level of detail... looks like a non-transparent external model only, see here: https://youtu.be/QvR87fCMpIQ?t=486
  5. They definitely are, but the manufacturing capacity required for those may simply be held up by demand for other components... I recently found a video that offers an explanation which seems plausible.
  6. Do you use multiple MS Store accounts? I once inadvertently switched to my son's account and got a 60GB download during one of the updates...
  7. That's just a little quirk of the page layout... If you look at any other thread, the box at the bottom of the page where you can type a new post appears next to your avatar. In the case of a locked thread, the box is replaced with the "this topic is now closed" message. When I look at that thread, my avatar is shown there 😉
  8. Yep, the guy was an absolute jerk (the moment he gets thrown to the side like a rag doll is quite comical in a bizarre "he had it coming" way), but I feel really sorry for the girl standing in the middle, she seems to have gotten tossed around quite badly...
  9. Hi Al, I use 4K Video Downloader. The free version is limited to 30 videos a day and cannot download entire channels/playlists, but otherwise it works just fine, has been safe so far and only displays ads in an unobtrusive manner (at the bottom of the main window, without obscuring any functionality). HTH, Tym
  10. Yep... BTW, have you guys seen the ship's satellite track? Rather interesting (might be NSFW)... 😉 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t5IKbYcLgQA
  11. Go for a kit of two matched 16GB sticks, you'll save yourself a lot of trouble. Trying to get four (even theoretically identical) sticks to work together can be a PITA...
  12. I fully agree that during the day, the depiction can be very convincing (apart from the excessive haze, which should be more flexible depending on reported visibility and humidity). The biggest problems are sunset/dusk and dawn/sunrise, which happen to be my favorite times to fly, that's why I am so critical of the implementation, not really the technology itself. The pixelated EA clouds may be a technical limitation, but the biggest issues are related to imperfect implementation. They really need to have a competent artist adjust the lighting and colors at the different times of day/night to make it right.
  13. And that's the crux of the problem, right here. For some reason, LM chose to go with a technology designed for FPS games, not for flight sims. Yes, the TS clouds can look spectacular from the ground, but they are not meant to be viewed from above, and this is why there are so many issues with grids, etc. They don't follow the curvature of the Earth, either... "Half-baked" is another keyword here, and a bit of an euphemism, really... They simply slapped on a third-party technology with the hope that it might work...Well, it doesn't, not without proper customization. And the glowing objects at night, awfully pixelated clouds at sunrise/sunset, the Martian red dawns/dusks and a plethora of other visual glitches clearly show that the customization is badly needed. One would expect that it would've been addressed almost a year from release, but apparently that's not a priority. /rant off
  14. All my builds for more than ten years had been Gigabyte-based, so I naturally went with their z490 board for my last upgrade, but it turned out to be faulty, too. It took 3 minutes to POST, then the onboard LAN stopped working. I wasted way too much time trying to get it to work, finally returned it... Looks like I'm back to being an Asus guy... 😉
