As you can see from my notes, a very confusing start. Since the game now puts the HUD back instantly when switching from cockpit to external, I switched to using the drone for HUD free screenshots. However after using that my plane started behaving really weird. I kept losing control of the climb rate which I use the so called plus and minus for, mapped to my flight stick. After selecting it back to control VS mode, my plane did not seem to want to co-operate anymore.
Auto pilot didn’t really want to turn or climb anymore, just very slowly change direction. I thought it was a bug with max bank angle and maybe the fpm were somehow a factor 10 off after the update. However even without AP the plane felt very sluggish, as if the sensitivity of my flight stick had been dialed way down. I was about to exit and restart the game when I noticed it was also taking a lot longer to move forward, much slower than my airspeed was suggesting.
I finally checked sim rate settings, R sets plus and minus to control the sim rate. R also moves the drone view up. Ugh. I set the sim rate back to what looked like normal speed (there is no reset?) and continued. Then somehow I managed to set it to double speed and ended up landing at a near stall while it looked like I was coming in way too fast. I unmapped the sim rate button, then everything went fine again.
Odesa does have lighted runways, easy landing, parked there to check out the city by day time.
