  1. May I ask the following: When in External camera view and rotating the view around my plane left or right (using commands External view Look left, External view Look right, or using the hat switch) I noticed that the image tilts - one vertical edge goes down and the opposite vertical edge goes up. When I stop rotating the view, there's a certain inertia to the effect and it takes 2-3 seconds to return the view to perfectly horizontal view on the plane. The edges then return to their original positions. I further noticed the effect is a function of the External camera zoom factor: When the External camera zoom factor is 50%, no image tilt happens during view rotation. This is the desired behaviour for me. When External camera zoom factor is close to 0% and rotating right, the right edge goes UP (and the left edge goes DOWN) and returns back after 3 sec. When External camera zoom factor is close to 100% and rotating right, the right edge goes DOWN (and the left edge goes UP) and returns back after 3 sec. This effect was not present in FSX. I have to admit that despite being a virtual pilot for decades, the effect has a nauseating effect on me on the 32 inch screen... I just get dizzy. I would like to get rid of it. I tried to reduce the camera momentum, but it doesn't help. When using the external camera I have my zoom factor often set close to 80%, which sort of prevents the plane shape distortion due to wide/narrow lens effect. (In fact, as mentioned in many other discussions here, we need to have not only zoom factor, but to get back also the external camera view distance, which would allow us to view the plane from various distances without the wide lens/narrow lens image distortion effect. And yes, I know I can have the drone camera, but that's another story... The external cam has advantages for me.) Is there any way how to stop this inertial image tilt when using the External camera, please? Thank you, David
  2. Thank you very much for your opinion. I appreciate it a lot. Will stay with 10900K. No video editing, just flying and a lot of Excel and my M.2 nvme SSD is PCIe 3.0 only (Samsung Evo 970 Plus). Have a good day!
  3. Hello, very interesting consideration concerning.10900K and 11900K. I made the same conclusion and went from 10700K to 10900K. Just to wrap it up: What do you think please about dropping the 11th gen 11900K into the 10th gen board? I have Z490-E from Asus. Despite the BIOS now supporting 11th gen CPUs I didn't find the courage and trust to do it. Final remark: Due to other reasons I fly MSFS in 1080p (actually 1200p with adaptive sync) using 3070. It's a blast, GPU obviously not utilized, CPU being the bottleneck. Haven't tried SU5 yet. Thank you for any remarks.
  4. Dear w6kd, Thank you for your tip to go for 2TB EVO Plus. I did it and I am very happy now. What a wonderful piece of technology! Have a good day, David
  5. Dear Flyers, I am building my first flightsim rig during Christmas holidays. It is intended for 1440p simming in MSFS 2020 (locked to 60 or 30 fps) . All other components are already in, but I desperately cannot decide on the processor. I am considering 10700K (EUR 380,- here) and 10850K (EUR 460,-). The other main components are: Asus Strix Z490-E, 32MB RAM 3200 CL16, RTX 3070, H115i pro xt 280 mm aio cooler, PSU 850W Gold+. It is not much question of money. I can afford to buy the 10850K. It is more the question of what is logic and wise. My consideration are: Which of the 2 has better single core performance. Some say 10700K is easy to oveclock and then gets perhaps better than 10850K, More cores in 10850K means more difficult cooling. Isn't 10700K easier choice? If Intel released new 11th gen Rocket lakes processors in Q1-Q2 2021, I might wish to get that one. I would loose less money on 10700K. BUT: 10850K has higher boost clock, What if Asobo improves support for multicore? Then 10 cores is more than 8 cores. Etc. I searched internet for MSFS CPU scaling info. Not much luck finding comparison between 10700K and 10900K. Reportedly, 10850K performs equally to 10900K in games. Here they mean games in general. But what is the situation specifically in MSFS 2020? Is there any difference between these two in 1440p? Any advice would be very much appreciated, thank you. David
  6. Dear Flyers, Big thank you to all who tried to help and especially to RichieFly and ChaoticBeauty. I really appreciate your time you put into the asnwers and your expertise. I live in Europe (NL and CZ) and our purchase options are therefore a bit different to people in the US. There are no megashops like Microcenter here, but of course a lot of stuff can be purchased online. Still, prices and availability are different. May I ask once again, please, how much space on your drives is in total related to MSFS after several weeks of flying? I know the specifications mention 150 GB, but how much is it in total in your case? Thank you and as Kelsey says, "Keep the Blue Side Up!" David
  7. Good day, Allow me to ask: I am building a new rig with the following goal: MSFS 2020 at 1440p, target 30 fps, both Airliners and GA, no 3rd party scenery, but here and there (not too complex) 3rd party aircraft. So far I have selected: Intel i7-10700K (OC), Geforce RTX 3070 (when available), 32GB Corsair Vengeance DDR4 3200MHz, Asus ROG Strix Z490-F, Corsair H115i PRO XT cooler, Corsair 850W RMx 80+ Gold, Corsair Obsidian 750D case (I know the case doesn't matter, just wanted to share.) The problem is I don't have any experience with MSFS 2020 as my current PC cannot run it. I am still on FSX:SE on a HDD. How would you advice to compose the SSDs, please? I know for sure I would like to have the system (Win10) on M.2 NVMe. Further I know I need about 1 TB for non-flying stuff (photos, videos etc.) 1) Is it o.k. to have MSFS2020 on the same drive as Win10? Or is it better to have it on a separate drive (either M.2 or SATA SSD)? 2) And how much space is reasonable to have for MSFS (e.g. scenery cache)? My internet is not the fastest - 30-50 Mbps. Currently I am considering (but have no clue how to decide): Option A (sort of pricey...:-((( ) 2TB Samsung 970 EVO Plus M.2, PCIe NVMe Option B (is this enough?) 1TB Samsung 970 EVO Plus M.2, PCIe NVMe (Win10; MSFS) 1TB Samsung 870 QVO 2.5" SSD, SATA (for other stuff) Option C (overdone?) 1TB Samsung 970 EVO Plus M.2, PCIe NVMe (Win10; MSFS) 2TB Samsung 870 QVO 2.5" SSD, SATA (for other stuff incl. other MSFS items??) I can add other drives later, but what is sensible to have for the first 2 years? Any advice would be very much appreciated. Nice evening and thank you, David
  8. I guess that now, when Mr Jim Young has sadly passed away, there won't be many people with sufficient knowledge to answer questions like this one...
  9. Gentlemen, May I ask the following: I have been flightsimming since 8-bit computers and FS4. Only the last 2-3 years I am finally getting fluid FSX SE performarnce, although I run it for personal reasons on a very ancient computer. The good results have been achieved mainly thanks to 2 major factors: First, I started to use Steve's DX10 Fixer. Secondly, after years of tweaking fsx.cfg, I finally tried the excellent Avsim Configuration Guide by Mr Young, which I followed as close as possible. After finishing with the Guide, for the first time in years with FSX, my framerates were constant and high enough (30fps) and I again felt the joy of flying, a fluid movement in 3D space. However, since combining the Fixer with the Avsim Guide, I experince CTD almost in every flight. It happens anytime from 5 minutes to 1-2 hours into the flight.The sound freezes (you hear it for a moment at the fixed pitch), the screen goes black, the blue timer appears and after a while the sim needs to restart. AppCrashView lists d3d11.dll as the cause. I studied the complete Avsim CTD Guide, but was not able to get rid of the issue. I do not use SweetFX, which is named as probable cause in the guide. The crashes happen also with default planes, in default scenery with no weather (clear skies). Everything default. I do have some commercial add-ons installed, see below. Any help would be greatly appreciated. My apologies for the long post. Software FSX SE Steve's DX10 Fixer - settings DX10 AA: 4x Commercial Add-ons: RealAirSimulations (Scout, Lancair), Level-D 767 - crashes also with just default planes. Weather: FSrealWX Pro - crashes also with just default weather, without starting fsrealwx. Map: Little Navmap - crashes also without starting navmap. System Win7 32-bit, DirectX 11 4GB RAM Inte Core2Duo E8400 @ 3.0 GHz GeForce GT 1030 2MB GDDR5 @ 1280 x 1024 Honeycomb Alpha AppCrashView (and below also Fsx.cfg) Fsx.cfg
