    No - I was not talking about frame rates, but rather overall simulation speed, i.e. cutting flight time. You can use it to reduce flight time on long distance flights by a factor of 2, 4, 8, or 16,...

    For what it is worth, I have flown over 100 hours in MSFS without any crashes, until I tried to increase simulation rate to 4x or 8x. Doing that will crash the program in a few minutes on my PC. It...

    Forum entries reversed?

    It seems that the sequence of posting entries have been reversed, i.e. the starting post is now listed last with the latest entry listed on top. Is that intentional? I personally find it annoying!

    Everybody is looking for "immersion". I can't think of anything being more important to immersion than the environment in which you are flying, i.e. the cockpit and outside scenery. The realism of...

    All I can tell you is my Steam installed copy (uncompressed) is 31.9 GB - no addons. You can install on the drive of your choice, but an SSD would be preferable. Have fun!
