    Interesting that you have not yet installed SU5, yet describe it as a "crime". You refer to a "scarce few posters who claim graphics as good as they were before the update", implying that this group...

    I'm not sure if the previous post is directed to me, but for the record, I fly it as a simulator with full cockpit controls, ATC, the works. I do not own X-Box.

    Let me say two more things. First...

    IF you have (a) a reasonably good computer system and (b) patience and persistence when problems arise, go for it. MSFS2020 is without a doubt the most advanced flight sim ever created, and is...

    As a matter of fact, just this morning with the SU5 update and the hotfix installed, I flew the TBM930 from KLGA over to the Verazanno Narrows bridge, up the Hudson River with side trips to view the...

    OK, at this point in time some folks justifiably regard the latest MSFS update as a disaster, while others think it is fabulous. To some degree, this seems to happen after every update, though in...

    Found the problem -- it was the "We Love VFR" addon files, which apparently are incompatible with the Update.

    You had said that "the addons in the community folder are normally the problem" (boldface added). I do not think this is true. "Some" might be a fair statement, though I would say it's probably very...

    crazy smoke

    What is with the "smoke" emanating from smokestacks since the recent update? It looks like crude line drawings of polygons that appear to move like smoke but bear no resemblance to the real thing....

    Boy, you nailed it. Your video says it all. I am a grizzled veteran of 14 years with FSX (and FS9 before that) and know that both of these were great sims for their time, especially when enhanced...

    I have found that this varies considerably with time of day. Generally contrast is best when the sun is high in the sky. I did find that some adjustment of nvidia settings also helped.

    As was made clear well in advance of its release last August, MSFS is a work in progress, and no doubt it will be better in 6 months than it is now, and in 12 months better yet. Nevertheless, in my...

    Absolute nonsense. If the default prop planes in MSFS were all junk, the program wouldn't have lasted a week.
