    Just uninstalled MSFS 2020.
    Ran fine. Awesome graphics. Not really happy with the Aircraft dynamics outside of the GA.
    It will get better.
    4.5 screams on my MSFS rig. Sliders set all the way down the block....8>)

    Installed MSFS2020 - and immediately uninstalled again.
    Will reinstall it after a year or so. It should be ready for primetime by then.

    I purchased MSFS and it sure is pretty but I need realistic aircraft, FMC, GPS Nav units, etc. 3rd party (except for carenado) are not going to be available for some time (4Q 2021 ie PMDG) so I upgraded to Prepar3d V5. MSFS is currently just a game for me right now.

    Am I the only one still using (and liking) V4.5?

    No: I started using it last week. I'm moving from FSX-SE.

    Why not v5.x?
    Seems more logical to me!

    V. 4.5 - no, L-M's development has ceased.

    V. 5 - yes.

    This is exactly the reason to stick with v4.5--Stability. You know--flying rather than tweaking--then waiting --then tweaking again --then hoping this time they've finally got it right.

    V4.5 has been working reliably on my system for quite some time --and likely to remain so exactly because they are now leaving it alone.

    My GPU is below minimums for V5. Since it's a laptop, there´s nothing I can do.

    1. v5 is still "in development"

    2. V5 requires you to re-buy the sim.

    3. Most importantly, unless you have more than 8Gb of VRAM, many issues have been reported.

    4. As a result of #3, with V5 you are jumping into the latest "read and tweak" festival--V4.5 is for those who want to spend their time actually flying

    As for your #3: there are many problems with ANY amount of VRAM....

    v5 works better with reduced settings (and lesser hardware) than v4.5.
    Both are 64-bit optimised.

    Suggest you provide your hardware specs for clearer advice, as what you have had up to now is not accurate. Otherwise stay with v3, and 32-bit.
