  1. Might be that time machine feature in MSFS causing it? Karlatornet in Gothenburg was in the first screenshots even though it will be completed in 2023. And then ESSB will be gone and replaced with padel courts? 😉
  2. The only problem is that a P38 need guns that work and proper missions. I have 100 times more hours in IL2 than MSFS and highly recommend it for people that love WW2 fighter air combat. It looks good and I will buy it to support them (like I did with their Spitfire), but look way more forward to the Twin Otter from Aerosoft for MSFS.
  3. Absolutely. After SU5 + WU6, MSFS runs completely fluid in VR with ultra settings on my rig - and I love it. And you are right. We in Sweden are like the Brits. Sarcastic almost all the time...
  4. Yesterday was a unique day. For a while threads like this filled the forum and the air was filled with positivity. The birds where singing and even the IRL weather in Sweden was good! Today everything is back to normal. Trees are awful, MSFS clouds are pathetic and the textures are a blurry mess. Just wait until later tonight when the friday stiffies have been poured! 🙂
  5. I can really recommend the VKB T-rudder Mk IV pedals. Never miss a take off in a 109 in IL2 with those... Or that tiny lead adjustment to get the Mk 108s to land exactly where I want them to.
  6. The scary thing reading this on a mobile is that I had to zoom in on that last image to realize it's not MSFS but the real world... But we don't have trains yet naturally 😉 I grew up at the bottom of a lake with Fighter Pilot on the ZX Spectrum. I can tell you a screenshot from that game would never be mistaken as reality or vice versa, but I think I still have more hours in it than MSFS. I think it ran at 3-4 fps by the way... 🙂
  7. You need to take everything you read in the Hitchhiker's guide with a pinch of salt 😉
  8. Well - agree that it's impressive what has been done to keep the Falcon 4.0 code alive with BMS. I would say that it unfortunately feels a bit too old in the graphics department compared to DCS with VR. In version 2.7 with the new clouds you really get the feeling of being IN an F16 and not looking at a representation on a screen of it. Anyway - I like BMS as well, especially the dynamic campaign. But to go back to the topic of the lack of meaning in MSFS - I fully agree that it's the major problem with MSFS now. I think you either need to go full Monty with the online VATSIM community - or some third party "mission generator / finance simulator". I really can recommend giving Neofly a try. It's free so no hurdle there. Before I started using Neofly I flew MSFS for an hour or two and went back to DCS and IL2. With Neofly I got hooked with the missions that give a purpose that works for me why I need to fly somewhere and make sure to get down with less than 200 fpm to not damage that sensitive cargo. And when you buy a new aircraft you really want to understand all the features of the autopilot etc. I am not the least interested in getting military aircraft into MSFS but look forward to transport aircraft now 🙂
  9. Reminds me of this that an ATC friend shared that is related to Frankfurt from the 70:ies (?) - from http://www.eaa67.org/Miscellaneous/jokes.htm: The German air controllers at Frankfurt Airport are renowned as a short-tempered lot. They not only expect one to know one's gate parking location, but how to get there without any assistance from them. So it was with some amusement that we (a Pan Am 747) listened to the following exchange between Frankfurt ground control and a British Airways 747, call sign Speedbird 206. Speedbird 206: "Frankfurt, Speedbird 206 clear of active runway." Ground: "Speedbird 206. Taxi to gate Alpha One-Seven." The BA 747 pulled onto the main taxiway and slowed to a stop. Ground: "Speedbird, do you not know where you are going?" Speedbird 206: "Stand by, Ground, I'm looking up our gate location now." Ground (with quite arrogant impatience): "Speedbird 206, have you not been to Frankfurt before?" Speedbird 206 (coolly): "Yes, twice in 1944, but it was dark, -- And I didn't land."
  10. Well, if that expansion is anywhere near what we have today in DCS with the F/A-18, F-14 and Super Carrier expansion - I will eat my old CH flightstick 🙂 IMO, It would be better for them to focus on Helicopters or gliders that make sense for MSFS...
  11. As I understand it you have all pilot assists set to "on". Can you see if turning off the auto rudder changes the behavior?
  12. IL2 Battle of X, DCS, Combat Mission series (Cold War lately) , Command Modern Operations, Flashpoint Campaigns Red Storm, Field of glory 2, Assetto Corsa, Transport Fever 2, Skyrim VR, Elite Dangerous VR, COTW, On the PS5 when in the sofa - Snowrunner or Red Dead 2...
  13. No, I am pretty sure that it will be the same code base as much as possible. Just that they will add support for larger textures, more complex meshes, more objects rendered etc on PCs. Sliders going a bit further 🙂 As it is now I get 90 FPS with Ultra settings. For a next gen game it should hurt to go ultra... Something that you need a PC in two or three years to run good. It's rather obvious now when half of the VRAM is not utilized that there must be room for that in high en PCs. Just like in Red Dead Redemption 2 that just got RTX support for PCs.
  14. Let's be positive about the fact that the Xbox release is finally done! I guess a lot of work in the team this year has been focused on getting MSFS to run well on the Xbox with the same code base. With the hard 16 Gb memory limit and rather average GPU by 2021 standards, that must have been a lot of work. And then the plumbing with control schemas, menus, distribution etc. So now when it's done I guess that we will see more focus on core bug fixing and implementation of new content like helicopters, gliders etc? Online glider races in Condor 2 are awesome. With the MSFS graphics engine it would be even better as that is what Condor 2 really lacks... I am still surprised that they did not implement some AirHauler / Neofly "campaign" engine where you earn money by flying missions to buy new planes... I am very sure that they in SU6 or 7 will start adding new Ultra+ settings for PC just as other games do that are available both on consoles and PC. Now there has probably been only one focus. And that makes sense...
  15. After SU5 I could go to Ultra settings on + some more (supersampling 8x8 for example). And with higher FPS and no stuttering at all. So after that everything looks a bit better, especially runway textures and markings that where annoyingly blurry before SU5 (for me).
