    When did that change? I bought FSX when it came out (box, not steam), have mostly flown MP over the years, and I've never seen MP traffic -- I thought the docs said AI (and boats) doesn't work in MP,...

    I expect that works at sea level, with just a somewhat reduced climb rate, but you may not GET 120 KIAS in cruise at 5000 and up (maybe not 120 MPH, depending on model), let alone climb, and on a hot...

    That video is exactly what my friend and I experienced with what we called "scenery pauses," where we'd both hit it in exactly the same spot (not same time, but same spot*). Using SSD, going to Win...

    Nope. The "pitch" of the aircraft is level during takeoff untill you rotate, so that shouldn't be much of an issue. Are you using the "2D" cockpit? That could be the source of your problem. Using the...
