  • content_pasteAll mods will work with the MSFS Basic version but it is recommended to have the MSFS Premium version installed to ensure that all included objects appear in your sim. Other versions (Standard and Deluxe) will work, but some items may not appear.
    It is highly recommended to have all free World updates installed.
    Do not forget to check the dependencies. its imperative to have the list of dependancies installed, or your scenery will not display correctly / incomplete.

  • content_paste"One of the cool things about Microsoft Flight Simulator is the ability to do multiplayer flights with other players over the internet. I have done quite a few of these, most often group flights where we explore some interesting part of the world while we talk about flying or other things, over Discord or Skype. I've also done flights with my Australian friend Pete (a.k.a. "MiGMan"), often testing out routes in his ongoing MiGMan's World Tour (MMWT) Series. This is an enjoyable social aspect of flight simulation, where airplane nerds can talk with other airplane nerds about airplanes as they pretend to fly them!"

  • --/o\-- The Future is Now!
  • content_pasteAfter a 14 year hiatus Microsoft re-envisioned their flagship IP. A combination of Bing satellite mapping, cloud storage, Azure cloud computing, photogrammetry, atmospheric physics modelling and many other bespoke software technologies have delivered a quantum leap in the flight sim experience. The next decade looks to be the best yet for flight sim fans!

  • content_pasteUnfortunately I haven't yet optimised my OBS recording pipeline. OBS is running on a second PC and is introducing it's own lag and stutters. Anyway the FPS counter tallies with what I saw - a smooth experience hovering around 50fps.

  • content_pasteAdds over 1,000 ship models and their routes. Very cool and in my opinion the single most game-changing add-on for MSFS. Consider that 70% of the earth's surface is water and that many capital cities are on the coast. Suddenly the blue zones come alive with ships and boats!

  • MSFS 2020: How to improve the control sensitivity
  • content_pasteI still felt that some of my landing problems are controls related so I went looking. This guy is long winded but the gist is to find flight_model.cfg (I think) for your aircraft. Save a backup copy then edit elevator_effectiveness from 1 to maybe 0.1 and similar for pitch and rudder. Fast forward to find this part of vid. Then set the sensitivity to 0.0 so all are back to linear with no dead zone (for me). With my stick, this makes it feel and act much more realistic to me in the XCUB and C152.

  • content_pasteSigning in and out of Microsoft Flight Sim 2020 can cause some settings to change, so I made this checklist to keep track of them and quickly get the sim back to where you were before.

  • content_pasteWhat I said 18 years ago about Flight Sim 2002 seems totally applicable to this new sim:
    Previously to get anywhere near this level of detail for a particular locale you would have to purchase a 3rd party scenery pack and then suffer abominable frame rates.

    With the ability to automatically generate buildings, trees, static and flying aircraft and the associated radio traffic this package must have sent shock waves through companies whose business was based on enhancing the Microsoft sims. Still, the open architecture is there and the Pro version even includes an object / aircraft construction kit.

    I'd imagine some business plans are hastily being rewritten and in the end we are all better off.

    The sim has the ability to support computers and graphic cards that aren't even built yet - but they will be!

    Yet it still runs on an average PC and looks good. Who could have imagined 10 years ago that this level of detail and complexity could be modelled on a PC? Only in my dreams!
