  1. I get a little bit of shuttering / lagging but don’t want to turn down my settings.

    I’ve watched some YouTube videos but the technical stuff going above my head.

    Ive seen my 16GB memory near full at times when using MSFS 

    will getting another 16GB help? Currently have 2x8GB DDR4 3200mhz

    Stop throwing money at overpriced hardware. 

    Reduce your settings a notch or two, and enjoy the sim now,  and you don't have to wait "for years" for prices to come down (which they won't anyway)

    No thanks. 

    I play for the scenery and am keen to get some improvement where I can. 32Gb of ram or another 2x 8GB doesn’t cost much if it helps

  3. Currently running AMD 3600X with a RTX 2060 Super and 2x 8GB of DDR4 Ram.

    Ive watched some comparisons if I did an upgrade on my CPU but without a 3090 etc there’s no noticeable improvement. 

    Would a doubling of RAM to 32Gb help or is this a case of save up and get a 3090 and then new CPU as well. This could be years away!!

    what am I trying to achieve, just a general improvement around settings and shuttering / lag at higher end spec.


  4. For various reasons I've almost stopped using MSFS but are holding out for widebody aircraft. I keep it updated and every so often go in a update A320NX and check out what's changed..

    Some weird stuff is happening can anyone help with these?

    • Why do i get a compass, airspeed, engine %, flaps all the time
    • Why do I get what appears to be pins all over the landscape?
    • Why do i get auto ATC which includes auto push back even if it don't want it or am not ready

  5. Okay if I can please ask that we keep this factual as best we can.

    What's the advantage / disadvantage of using this Google maps add-on

    Looking at things such as performance improvement/reduction... impact to other add-on... 

    Obviously the reason for the add-on is scenery improvement.. so we can ignore that. I'll test that myself.

  6. So I’ve been out of the sim for a month, got a bit tired of short haul flights all the time.

    Has there been any movement on 3rd party wide body development? I see so many small prop aircraft being added. 

    I don’t have the box 787 as I didn’t buy that package abs refused to pay 100% more now for one aircraft.

    747 is an option but it’s not floating my boat. Out of interest are there add ons like FBW for this?

    talking of FBW I know there’s been no movement on their A380 as far as expected dates. But accepted next year if we’re lucky. 

    QW: Nothing

    Mega Pack: A330 is what you’d expect for free

    Captain Sim is a fancy shell but tempted to go there if there are add ons to improve flight deck panels etc

    PMDG focusing on 737 I believe

    anything else??

    Both should be equally up to date.

    In Simbrief, you need to "Unlock" the current AIRAC using your Navigraph credentials. The current version is 2017.

    For MSFS, you need to run the Navigraph application. Check the version of AIRAC cycle that is currently showing as installed. If it is earlier than 2107, click the "remove" button. After it is removed, the button will change to "install". After clicking install, the version should update to 2017.

    That's payware isn't it?

  8. I'm trying to fly my A32NX into KLAS. Tried ILS 01L, 26L and others.

    Using SimBrief I'm getting CLARR3 arrival into 26L but there's nor CLARR3 on my MCDU. The only C's I get are CHOWW1, COKTL1 & CRES04. The other option I've tried is via 01L which uses CLARR3 or KEPEC6 but there's no STARS beginning with K at all.

    How are you meant to fly into KLAS? Am I meant to just pick one and then using the plan knob and the right range look on my PFD?

  9. I'm posting it in this thread because I solely use the FBW A32NX mod in MSFS. 

    I currently use a Saitek Yoke control with throttle quadrant as it's all I have. 

    Looking for options in a joystick / sidestick. I've heard the Thrustmaster Airbus version is overpriced for what you get but at least it comes with throttle quadrant.

    Are there any other options out there?


    The Logitech X56 is more expensive than Airbus. Is it any better? not sure if it'll have engine starts, the ability to add addons like airbus and is there reversers etc

    The 16000M is priced very well but what do people do with thrust? do they use the tiny slider on the base of the stick?

  10. I'm trying to get into more general aviation. It's freaken hard to land on a smaller runway. The smallest movements up/down or left/right make really dramatic differences when flying. It's near impossible to line up and be in line and the right speed * height. 

    Any suggestions.

    There’s a built in 152 tutorial. I’d start with that. 

    There are also flight lessons hosted by a CFI with Jayne, the MSFS community manager. They’re all on the MSFS official Twitch.


    Transferring over to the C172 shouldn’t be hard - it just has more horsepower and a fuel-injected system instead of a carburetor. Let me know if you need any help with the 172, as that’s a plane I fly IRL.
