perhaps I am expecting too much from this game


They need to start going through the bug reports if they haven't already started as well as get a team solely for terrain issues such as the green slopes of Dover, and the insanity that is Sweden. It may take a good 6 months to make a decent dent.

Performance has got even worse for me.

Gtx1080 and playing at 1080p on medium and it chugs along at 30fps!

Stone henge is literally a blurred White spot.

Beginning to Think I may have downloaded the wrong game by accident.

I’ve been having a blast with this since release, accepting my 1060 is only going to give me 30fps on mostly High settings.

It will take a while for this to not feel like a game that’s recently left Early Access though, and I’d probably feel short changed if I wasn’t getting this via Game Pass.

I don't think I've quite got my head around the settings yet. I did a manual cache of a few areas in the highest quality and they still look pretty bad. I don't think I'm doing it right though, as the stuff I see on the map when creating the cached areas are not what I see in game. The in-game stuff seems years out of date. Odd example I know, but Orlando in florida... the Volcano bay theme park is on the manual cache map, but in game I see a very bad looking building site (as it was in 2016).

I attempted a flight from London City Airport to very north Scotland but I need to stop and refuel along the way. I've got 1% of fuel left and can't slow down the plane enough to land on a 1M long runway at some tiny airstrip.

A 1 meter long runway is going to be a tough challenge.

I can't seem to end flights. I've done all the tutorials but they just end when you complete the last objective. Now I land, request taxi to parking, and it says to follow the on-screen directions, but there are none? I can't shut down the plane either. I can put throttle to zero and shut off the battery, but my propellers are still going. A few sites have said control, shift and e is to shut the engine down, but for me it takes screenshots. :fp:

You can remap the controls in settings.

Watch all of this 15-minute video of a pilot playing Flight Simulator for the first time, what is her verdict?

There is definitely one relating to having a black box.

Not one comment about her being able to get my seat in an upright position? How can you call yourselves gamers?

I think we are doing an admirable job of lowering the tone.

Decided to do a bit of real time world tour. Always going to use real time and weather, always going to take off from where I landed, and no mid-flight saving. It's a bit of a pain right now as by the time I'm done with work and fired it up, there's not much light left, but once I can get across to the US, should be able to do some longer flights.

Started off friday evening by going from Swansea to St Davids, and then down to Land's End, with a cracking sunset to finish it off. Weather was not as great when I resumed by flying across the south coast to Brighton, and then up to Southend, and then onto Liverpool (had a dodgy moment when coming in to land and a much bigger plane came in above me :shock:). I hopped on at lunch time to fly to Carlisle, and tried to have a quick look at Snowdon before I went, but the weather has been awful today. Snowdonia (and the Lake District) were both terrifying! A little disappointed in how the game can't seem to do piers yet either. Was looking forward to seeing the one at Southend and Blackpool. Also, Blackpool Tower just isn't there. It's not even a weird thing drawn on the ground, so not sure what's happened.

I'm planning to go Scotland > Faroe Islands > Iceland > Greenland > Newfoundland > US, but I'm finding some airports/fields/strips hard to find. Nothing shows up when I zoom the map over the Faroes or Greenland. I googled airfields in each, and some of the Greenland ones show up when searching, but no luck getting Vagar to show up in the Faroes doing this.

They're working on bringing it to Xbox, probably for 2021.
