  1. If you have a game controller (e.g. Xbox controller or similar) connected to your PC, that can be the issue. The sensitivity of the axes can be reduced in the sim to prevent this, or you can simply unplug/remove its batteries if you don't use it whilst running MSFS.
  2. Well, I thought it was funny.😄 In case you're unaware, a Bergen is a WW2 rucksack used by British forces, and a name still sometimes used today as a generic term for a rucksack. There's room for humour in most discussions in my opinion.😊
  3. Go to postimages.org and either browse to or drag from the folder on your PC that the image is saved in. A list of links will be generated, choose the "Direct Link" option (click the copy icon at the right of the link) and paste it in your post. et voila! Much quicker and simpler than the explanation sounds.😉 (You can also choose smaller size images if you don't need it full resolution/size).
  4. First I've heard of this. Good grief, this guy is a low-life on so many levels! The very fact someone would deliberately crash a vehicle without any control over where it ends up or who or what it could kill or seriously injure is beyond stupid. Frankly, he's getting off lightly IMO. He certainly shouldn't be allowed his pilot licence ever again and I would honestly not allow him to drive any vehicle requiring a licence (though that may not be something that could be forced upon him legally). Another tell-tale sign of how staged this was is surely the fact he had the 'presence of mind' to use a selfie stick camera to record his parachute 'escape'. If it were me, I'd be thinking solely about exiting the plane swiftly and safely making my way to the ground, not worrying about how YouTube-worthy I could make my misfortune look. What an absolute *insert derogatory term here*.🤬
  5. Building work in the neighbourhood has led to rats frequenting the local gardens, including mine over the past year. Mostly, I'm not overly bothered as rats are usually (unseen) neighbours to most people. But, as they had supplanted the much more welcome wood mice in my garage (who occasionally found their way into the kitchen until I found the potential entry points*), it was time for humane traps. I dislike killing even what are usually considered pests as they are just doing what is natural to them. Whether it's a mouse or rat, I usually cycle to the edge of the city and release them in woods or fields. Usually they will survive a night in the trap unless it is particularly cold, but one poor soul didn't have the nicest of ends. At most, I only seem to have a pair at a time and then obviously some young if I don't catch the adults in time. On this occasion, there were 3 or 4 young and one ended up in the trap. I went out the next morning and found it, or rather half of it!🤢 Fortunately, the wildlife camera I had been monitoring the trap with had run out of battery so I missed what must have been the trapped rat squeezing halfway through the bars, getting stuck and then being eaten by its own family.😶. 'Luckily' they did such a good job that there was literally half a rat in the cage and nothing outside it - it was as though it was a stuffed toy which somebody had perfectly cut through with a knife - strangely a lot less gruesome than it sounds. * The potential entry points, for anyone wondering where to look were the air bricks in the bottoms of the walls round the house (tiny holes, but big enough for the contortion artist that are mice) and the hole in the wall for the sink drainage pipe (turned out the hole was significantly bigger than the pipe🙄. Simple job to buy some very fine wire mesh and use 'No Nails' glue to stick it over each brick, allowing them to still do their job without inviting visitors inside.
  6. I never really noticed any advantage from using it personally. All it did was fill up a lot of drive space for no benefit I could see.
  7. Clearing the cache just means deleting it (there is an option in the sim to do that). If you've never used the rolling cache, there's nothing to clear, so you can ignore that.
  8. There's no need for a hosting service. Just go to postimages.org and either browse to or drag from the folder on your PC that the image is saved in. A list of links will be generated, choose the "Direct Link" option (click the copy icon at the right of the link) and paste it in your post. et voila! Much quicker and simpler than the explanation sounds.😉 (You can also choose smaller size images if you don't need it full resolution/size). In fact, here's an image of such a page I just snipped from the site: You don't need an account to do this.
  9. I posted some comparison images here. As for frame rates, I haven't noticed much difference in my limited testing so far. Perhaps a slight drop to 28FPS momentarily, but otherwise 30-40FPS.
  10. Glad you got it sorted.👍
  11. Counting down...⏱️🔐 Quite an amusing implication though.🤭
  12. Interesting. I don't have brown buildings. I have never been to EDDK so you know it better than me. Aerosoft City Update Aerosoft City Update The following are all City Update: Overall, I prefer the new version. Photographs I have looked at don't make it look the most attractive airport in the world, but the newer version seems closer to those photographs to me.
  13. Just tried Central - first attempt stuck at 'Loading', but it started fine the second time I tried.
  14. Not quite the way I was going to say it, but that's actually quite an accurate description!🤣 I'm certainly not against adding less common types of aircraft over the multitude of largely similar GA aircraft (or multiple Airbus/Boeing airliners), but there is definitely a big bias towards big flying boats from Asobo for some reason. Edit: Posted as I was posting the above.
