    I read a bunch of GPU threads on reddit and many people reported that 100% usage is normal. So I stopped worrying about it.

    If you use VR, make sure you have updated your settings to the most...

    It’s also exceptional for offering players a simulation of the entire planet Earth.

    I’ve been flying a lot in India lately, which is not even a popular destination for sim users. Asia has not...

    Huh? EA contracts out all the time, and actually suffered through tremendous financial problems some years ago. Microsoft is far more profitable and massive than EA. I’ve listened to interviews of...

    I completed the main update download yesterday, and played the game to test it, which revealed no problems.

    When I started the game this morning, there was a brand new announcement about another...

    I really don't know. I am not much of a software expert. All I can report is that I have had no problems with either of the two downloads, or with content manager.

    My Oculus Quest 2 has just gotten better and better since I first began using it. Even my past start-up issues are basically gone. I just turn the game on, turn the headset on, and off to the races I...

    Appreciate all the responses.

    After some head scratching I figured out that it was actually my VR headset that was causing some weird issues. I dug into some threads with advice and realized that...

    The Piper Arrow III by JustFlight definitely deserves mention on this thread. It's modeled after a gently used plane, not a brand new one, and does not have a glass cockpit. I like flying in it a lot.

    What is my PC doing?

    I've been patient with MSFS hiccups over time, but the last few days my aggravation level is getting pretty high. When approaching any particular airport, my PC seems to choke up and suddenly fall...

    I was about to answer similarly: the realism factor dictates that you shouldn’t actually be flying from whatever runway you want. Instead, wind patterns dictate it and the ATC AI reflects that...

    That's correct. The green diamond shaped bug did not show up. I have seen it before so I'm used to seeing it. I initially thought this meant that I was somehow dialed in incorrectly and that the...

    I was at exactly 2,000 feet. As I said, I did not have a problem locking in to the glide slope and using it to land. The issue I noted is that the white/green bug on the G1000 never showed up.

    I've created a shortcut to refuel by just hitting Control-R, so I can instantly refuel in mid-air. But I opted to exercise my sim brain muscles to simulate an emergency instead.

    I just tried flying into Ahmedabad, India using ILS. Although I did get locked in to the localizer glide scope, the white or green diamond never even showed up.
