  1. I have also uninstalled P3Dv5 and X-Plane. Yes, MSFS has some irritating quirks, especially after updates, but all-in-all, I think it's a masterpiece. So much so, that to take full advantage of it, I've upgraded my PC to i7-11700K, 64GB DDR4 3200 RAM, 1x1TB M.2, 1x2TBM.2, and a Gigabyte RTX 3090. It runs very nicely.
  2. Took me two days to find the forum link. It could be because I'm 68, and stupid, but, then again........
  3. I haven't got P3Dv5 on my machine at the moment, but I seem to remember that there's part of Fly Tampa YSSY that you have to disable if you have Orbx Australia. From memory it's Sydney_LC
  4. +1. For some reason, I really loved it. Would love to see it in MSFS.

Are you interested in moving to 4k in the future? I'm sure you'll find many people prepared to help.
  8. Hello, I've been waiting for somebody more qualified than I to reply, but here's my situation. Up until a year or so ago, I was flying P3Dv4 and X-Plane 11 in 2K, 1920x1080, but hankered for 4K. I was impeded by my lack of a 4k monitor and my venerable, but very reliable Nvidia GTX 680. The demise of the 680 then led me to a 1080ti, and, then, an ASUS PB287Q 28-inch 4k monitor. For me, it's another world. As I have 32GB RAM, (being upgraded today to 64GB), I've been able to run P3D, X-Plane, and now MSFS in 4k, at quite high settings. MSFS especially, is, quite simply, b
  9. I'm not one normally given to hyperbole, but I must say this could be one of the most significant and beautiful scenery designs ever developed for a flight sim. Stunning!
  10. @merlinuxmany thanks for pointing me towards fsaddons, and Centrepoint and The Harbour Bridge. Sydney looks a lot better now!
