  1. Hi, Thank you so much for the reply. Yes I had intended to get both a new CPU and GPU in the long run as I knew it was required but just knew I could not get both at the same time. I'll pick up a mobo and CPU in a few weeks' time. Thank you!
  2. Hi there, I'm looking to upgrade my system in the upcoming weeks in order to a) improve performance in P3D v4 (I just bought v5 and ran out of vram straight away and it was so buggy; very regretful) and b) get myself more inline for the MFS2020 specs. My current build: i5-6500 GTX 1050Ti 16GB RAM 1TB SSD I'm looking to upgrade both my CPU to an i7-9700k and my GPU to a 2070 but I can only do one at a time. So, do I go for the CPU (+ mobo) upgrade or the GPU upgrade? I have no idea what to do! Thank you :)
  3. I'm currently using P3D v4. I don't have any sort of weather addons at all, and I feel like I'm missing out. From reading, everyone talks about Active Sky. Now, looking at their website, I'd need ASP4 for a weather engine, seen as though I'd like to fly in real time weather. But ASP4 doesn't include any textures, so I'd need ASCA for weather textures so clouds don't look ugly, right? So that's £50 for ASP4, and then another £20 for ASCA? Ouch, that's pricey. Could anyone confirm if this is correct?
  4. I’m slowly migrating to P3D, but I currently don’t have any weather addons! I’ve learned that active sky is the best weather engine, but I want to know what addon would give me the best textures? Things like Sky Force 3D, Active Sky Cloud Art etc...which is the best? Thanks
  5. I was thinking about doing that, but based on the fact it's quite likely I'll stay, I don't have £60 to part with at the moment...:(
  6. Well, looks like you've all convinced me... I can upgrade to the Aerosoft A318/319 Professional for just £30 which is nice. I'm probably going to get 1 month of P3D for £10 as a trial to see what I think, with my ORBX installed and some UK2000 Airports too. Google also claims that TomatoShader and ReShade are good, so I'll install those. Then I'll return here with my thoughts...! Thanks everyone, and so long FSX...(for now!)
  7. Hey everyone, I currently have FSX:SE and I’ve heard lots about P3D. My current addons are: - ORBX Global + OpenLC - ORBX Dubrovnik, Stockholm - UK2000 Newcastle, Belfast, and Gatwick - Aerosoft A318/319 How would buying P3D actually benefit me? What does it give that FSX:SE doesn’t, and would it actually be worth it? My specs: i5-6500 3.2ghz GTX 1050Ti 16GB RAM Thanks everyone! :)
