  1. Thanks for the input. I actually ALMOST bought a 5800X3D for $220 on prime day but figured it was probably better spent putting towards a new build in the future.
  2. Well this post answered my questions. I was super on the fence of going for a 7950X3D and 4090 to upgrade from my 5900X and 3070 Ti but it sounds like I would be pretty disappointed. Frame gen is the only reason I would get a 40 series, but DLSS on Quality with my 3070 Ti looks so bad (esp the gauges) I can't imagine how bad frame gen must be.
  3. Honestly, I have no idea lol. I have been playing flight sim since 2004 but to this day, after thousands of hours, I don't know the details of the planes I fly to that level. I just have a good time and want that flashing to stop :D.
  4. KMCO has a new terminal now, but in game its just an extra building to the south, can't park at it/no taxiways leading to it. Its handcrafted so I had thought for sure that would have been updated when it opened late last year or so.
  5. I have noticed since the game came out back in 2020 but just thought to ask about it now. If I am at cruise in just about any aircraft with the garmin, (think SR22, DA40, TBM930, etc.) I notice that the RPM always flashes red, even if I lower the throttle to a point where I am losing airspeed. Is there something else I should be doing?
  6. I am considering going from my 3070 Ti to a 4080 but have not yet pulled the trigger. I have a 5900X though, so I imagine I am more CPU bottlenecked compared to your 5800X3D. I upgraded from a 6700K 2 years ago and even this 5900X says its limited by the MainThread. Still much better than my old 2080/6700k build was.
  7. I pre-ordered 2020 as soon as it was available on Steam. Will be doing the same here.
  8. That sounds like you are having a better time than me and I know my 5900X is the bottle neck.
  9. I would like to know the resolution. My build is very similar to yours and I run 1440p ultra with no real issues. Even when using the game's developer mode, I am also bottle necked by main thread. I could get a 4090 and still have the bottle neck I do. Idk if any CPU out today won't be a bottleneck for this highly single threaded game. 5900X 32GB DDR4 3600 3070 Ti 1 TB NVME PCIE Gen 4
  10. The fact that I can't find a 4090 at MSRP is making me wish I picked up a 3090 Ti on Amazon 2 weeks ago for $999.
  11. First time back here since posting this. Funny people are still posting to it as recently as yesterday. its been months! 😄 Still have not flown the 737 since the day I posted this but will give some of the advice here a try. I think deep down I am just hoping it works with the in game stuff soon before I fly it again. Flying it around VFR was a little boring for me because it was a bit too fast for that :D. I figured that for $70 it would work better than anything in the sim I guess, in that it would do everything I wanted with all of the fancy views that it has. Never bothered to set the views in the default A320 as I never looked into how. That and I wanted a 737 and thought that this was probably the best one to purchase. Maybe I will try it again some day.
  12. Welp, I was not going to buy it, but then I watched some videos and said, what the heck. Now I may be shunned for this, but I am not really a "study level" person. I just play the sim, fly around the world and more or less sight see. I finally did figure out how to get the 737 to be fully ready to go upon launching a flight with the FMC setting set to "RUNWAY". Great for me, as it makes it more like the base model planes in the game as far as loading up and going. One thing I can't figure out is why the flight plan in game does not seem to load into the FMC. The base planes and even the DC Concorde, which I have been flying a ton load up so that when I turn on AP and press the LNAV button it just follows the flight plan I made at the world map. Is there a setting for this on the PMDG? Would be super annoying to have to type a flight in each time.
  13. This might help you. I had to do something similar when I got a new drive a couple years ago for Forza Motorsport. I buy everything that I can on Steam now. The Microsoft Store handles installing things so poorly in comparison IMO. Good luck! https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/all/not-able-to-uninstall-old-microsoft-store-games/4557b56f-4d17-4c12-b30d-5cae1eb88fcb
  14. Wow for only $60 I think I am going to get this over the PMDG 737-700.
  15. I have been reading similar in this forum since the game came out. They probably will go subscription. Once everyone who has wanted the game bought it, there is not going to be much money left to be made. They have to justify those servers' uptime somehow for the group of people that still do use the game. Its like making people pay once for a haircut or something lol. Pay $60 and get as many haircuts as you want, eventually they will start losing money on the amount of haircuts and would need to find a way to get money coming back in. They will need to support the servers and deal with updates too. FSX had its life cycle and they stopped supporting it in like what 2010? I don't remember but it is an interesting point. It would be unfortunate but I see why they would potentially do it.
