  1. I really liked the POI markers in one of the screen shots! A great idea for those Round the World sightseeing flights a few of us have been talking about!
  2. That is totally my plan also! I think there is going to be quite a few of us doing that from the get go. I've nevery really done the online thing, but rekon a few like minded individuals wouold make it fun too!
  3. The more images & videos I see of MSFS; the more I think there may well be many moments like these when flying around.
  4. I'd love to see myself! As in my arms, legs etc. on the controls; rather than when I look around in the plane and it's empty! Not that fussed with passengers Although I think that in all reality the level of detail needed to make that realistic is probably prohibative.
  5. I rekon we have a small group of online bush flyers here!
  6. Watch that channel as well - These types of videos probably reflect what I'm going to try and do with the sim on day one. 🙂
  7. Not particularly time pressured. This PC is really for the newest iteration of Flight Simulator so the longer I wait the better indication i'll have for the required spec. 🙂 I also need to look at what monitor set-up to get. Based on the feedback (thank you all for the help!) these are the parts I'm looking at...

  8. Wow! Thanks for all the awesome feedback everyone! I'll start ammending the build list and looking round for respective parts. Happy flying!
  9. Hi All I'd be really interested in your thoughts for this build? I am building it specifically for the new Microsoft Flight Simulator. I've not built myslef a PC since the 90's so I rekon things have moved on quite a bit. I'm in a lucky(ish) position where I've completed some extra work so have a few £££'s to put into it. Intel Core i7-9700K 3.6 GHz 8-Core Processor Corsair H150i PRO 47.3 CFM Liquid CPU Cooler NZXT N7-Z39XT-W1 ATX LGA1151 Motherboard Corsair Vengeance LPX 32 GB (2 x 16 GB) DDR4-3200 Memory (2x so 64GB in total) Samsung 970 Evo 1 TB M.2-2280 NVME Solid State Drive Seagate 1 TB 2.5" 5400RPM Internal Hard Drive EVGA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti 11 GB Black Video Card NZXT H710 ATX Mid Tower Case Corsair RMx (2018) 650 W 80+ Gold Certified Fully Modular ATX Power Supply I have about £3k to spend - I'd be really interested in peoples thoughts with reference whether I have chosen the right mix of products and that I am not introducing any massive bottlenecks. I need to get a couple of monitors, do people think 2 or 3 is the best mix for simming? Any thoughts as to which panels to get? Thanks in advance! Happy flights! Matt
  10. I'm holding out for when they want to test it on a laptop - only have an i7-8750, 8gb ram, and a GTX1050. 😃🤣 Great work laptop though!
  11. I like that idea!!! Time to have a look at google bing 🙂 maps! And wikipedia!
  12. Round the world is on my to do list as well! Taking ages rather than as fast as possible! I'm from the UK so I think so far Scotland is high on the list to visit, as is Norway, French Alps and Med, and from there who knows! 🙂
