I'm still blown away by it

I am too am amazed on the difference this Update has made for my system. Mid range running all high settings before, now am able to run Ultra…some sceneries I had issue with FPS before but now like butter…yeah I get random CTD’s too but the one that do work are amazing!!

I play the game on a high end Laptop and thankfully had no CTD . But the game looks extremely awesome . It never looked so beautiful before . It makes me fly again and again . I pray Asobo doesn’t revert back the graphics .


This is what makes me chuckle the most about the much trumpeted power of the new generation Xbox.

It’s basically got the power of a 2 year old laptop

I have ‘played’ on flight sim since 1996. I was amazing then as much as it is jaw dropping today. It’s expanded my imagination and appreciation of world geography and it has increased my interest in aircraft and engineering. The flood of negativity and vitriol on this forum is typical of anything new - I’ve read similar comments on the forums regarding the Tesla car - so you should take it all with a pinch of salt, and take a deep breath before expending to much valuable energy on replying to anyone here.

Asobo and Microsoft et al have produced a real gem with this version of MSFS, be it for the PC or Xbox ( BTW I’m in my late sixties, and a first time console purchaser with my Xbox X. I couldn’t justify a top end PC for my hobby so the Xbox was a no brainer!). I do feel that these two groups will do well together - in time - for now there is a difference in how they perceive each other, but ultimately this alliance will benefit both.

A++ and keep up the good effort!

This is what I’m getting with high end specs. Unbelievable.


That is not what I get. Something must be screwed up for a number of users.

PMDG is a class act all around. Their forum is good too. I’m very impressed, and quite hopeful for the future of MSFS.

Honorable Mentions to Aeroplane Heaven and Just Flight too; both very good publishers. The AH C140 works just fine in SU5, and I’d expect updates from JF as soon as the dust settles. :slight_smile:

I’ll likely purchase pretty much anything from PMDG moving forward. The models they produce are amazing.


Every sim out there is a game, remember that.

Well, asking for realistic is that too much for a game so call flight sim? If the developers can’t make a flight sim then don’t call it or pretend it was and grabbed money from customers which they are not supposed to.

It’s visually more realistic than any of the other flightsim games could ever hope to be. Not getting your point.

@Caramago24 did you make a cutout screenshot ? What render scaling and screen are you using ?

Also you have great hardware, according to your profile !

I would advise to have a look at the LOD-scaling tweak, it will cost some FpS but the terrain LOD really improves… you have more view too… and (possibly) more sharpness… but I’m not sure if the blurry image is a result of LOD… or something else. it could be drone camera zoomin… or using 1044 on 4k… and then cutting it out… try this,

We need or we are piloting aircrafts in this “Game” and obviously we are not birds. So visually beautiful or realistic is just not enough. Hope you can understand :rofl::crazy_face:

Dc6, piper arrow and the soon to be released Fenix A320 are there for a reason, Crj is there too. Don’t act like anything stock in Xplane or P3D is close to flyable. It’s more arcade than Fs2020 in many regards, but you wont admit that.

Fenix A320?..freeware? For fs2020?

Payware. Most advanced liner ever in any sim. To be released yet.

I have a few small issues with Control Buttons in the menu not opening all the time but eventually got them worked out. but otherwise this new update ,load times are half and 10+ fps increase with a RTX 3080 . Still waiting for multi screen but this is a big improvement .

Agreed, been using PMDG since my FS9 days. I was just curious on it because this was the most fast response time I have ever seen from them since I started simming with them. Definitely other great publishers out there as well who pump out quality add ons. Excited to the 737NG3 as that is my most iconic and favorite plane to fly. Was great new to hear from Robert that the 737 was entering the testing phase!

The onine MP mode is currently non existing atm, had to create a ticket with MSFS in an attempt to get it resolved. Since Sunday it’s not possible to access a Live Player lobby at all. Every time u try to change to Live Player mode it kicks u back to Group only OFF option. When u also try to change to any other servers it kicks u back to EAST USA server, ■■■ is this BS???
