    Ah, copy that. Thanks.

    I sent my CPU back for an RMA just before the update hit, so I've been on the sidelines for the latest update. When my replacement arrives in a few days, I think I'll just...

    To confirm, because you didn't explicitly say so, do you mean installed from the in-game marketplace?

    I ask, because very soon I may need to go through this process myself.

    Yes, I also had FS95 (who can forget their "As real as it gets" mantra), those were the days.

    The reason why you have to remove all add-ons is simple. Updates change the code of the sim, sometimes quite substantially. Add-ons necesarily need to link in and be compatible with their code. So...

    My PC is borked, so I can't even try.

    With that said, I saw more than one alpha tester say that all addons will need to be patched. One particular alpha insider said the sim was almost recoded...

    To be sure, are you asking if it's possible to use FSX Steam Edition with FS2020's visuals? If so, then that's a big no. Best bet is to use good payware scenery for the areas where you regularly fly....

    Nice! I assume you're a vfr flyer, since you seem to be interested in the topic? I ask, because the tubes seem to require more computational horsepower.

    Also, what's your expectation? 60FPS in new...

    Hey Mr. Jarhead. I'd be a little concerned about the GPU. I assume you meant GT1030, since I don't think a GTX1030 exists? I'm afraid that's well below the minimum recommended spec (which is a...

    Just to add to this, some newer bushe trips feature the DA40NG, which also uses the G1000. In that plane, as in the Cessna, you can use the displays to orient yourself with the flightplan.

    I know what you mean. I have an HDR10 monitor. When HDR10 is on, I also get the washed out effect.

    Curiously, I didn't realise it was HDR10 capable until I tried running MSFS. On my old monitor...

    Is your power supply up to the job? I'm not at all sure about this, but what I'm getting at, is might the more powerful GPU be starving the CPU of power? Hence the slighly worse performance.
