  1. I came across IblueYonder's 'Heron's Nest' scenery the other day for my FSX. It says in the readme to install latest version of SODE to get all animations and objects to show correctly. As I have a lot of Orbx scenery (Base, Vector, OpenLC, full fat regions, airports etc..), and these rely on Objectflow for many animations, will installing Heron's Nest and SODE with their auto-installer mess anything up with Orbx scenery ? As I recall, I also think some Orbx scenery uses SODE ? (Oops, wrong forum. Perhaps someone could move this to FSX Support Forum please. Than
  2. Thank-you, @ozboater, for all the added info re Intel CPU's. Just a quick search on YT regarding the upcoming Ryzen 9 5k Series CPU's yields much favoritism toward the AMD line with many comments focusing on their 7nm DNA. On the GPU side of things ..... will be interesting how the new AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT will compare to the RTX 3090 using Ryzen 9 5950k CPU in both cases in MSFS. The 'NOTAM' YouTube channel will test once available.
  3. Looks like Direct X12 on the way. Great news, as MSFS2020 'till now was very CPU and single core limited. Now the upcoming AMD Ryzen 9 5950X and the new Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090 are strong candidates for new (but pricey) system builds. The AMD chip has apparently now broken the 5 GHz barrier in some tests. https://www.tomshardware.com/news/am...x-zen-3-review A very good GPU comparison video : https://youtu.be/Dx3gzmfOOXw (Note what he says at 12:40 mark onwards.)
  4. Almost "seems" like Intel's i9 10900k 5.3 GHz boost single core speed is slower than AMD's 5950X 4.9 GHz boost once AMD's 19% IPC uplift is considered. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C6BOIr7sN20&ab_channel=JayzTwoCents
  5. It will be interesting what Q1 of 2021 brings. At 6:10 of the video he certainly paints a bleak picture.
  6. The Nvidia RTX3000 series cards are almost a no-brainer for new system builds running MSFS2020, but the CPU (Intel vs AMD) remains the big question. Right now, the i9 10900k seems to be the one to go with, but when/if MSFS goes full multicore capable then perhaps AMD will have the advantage. Doug Sawatzky from the Orbx team is a big proponent of the AMD CPUs (7nm lithography) . I wonder what his take would be on this latest news from AMD ?
  7. Ok, so wrt MSFS2020, I figured I finally got all my hardware issues ironed out once I learned about Nvidia's RTX3000 series cards which would pair nicely with an i9 10900k (after all MSFS still is centric to one core, ... for now). Who can argue with single core boost clock speed of up to 5.3GHz ? Only drawback was the dated chip architecture (still not 7nm). Now AMD is closing the single core performance gap with the Ryzen5000 series. https://www.techpowerup.com/273133/amd-launches-amd-ryzen-5000-series-desktop-processors-the-fastest-gaming-cpus-in-the-world Not o
  8. Hi Jack, He, he .... yes, for sure, I mean ...., you know, ... the pumpkin is very well drawn ...... almost life-like. Your comment kinda reminds me of the 'ol saying : "Life's a Witch ...... and then you fly !" ...... Remember this Orbx airstrip ? Have a great day !
  9. Thanks, Jack for this Imgur code trick . Scary to not be able to quite figure out witch one of the codes to use anymore, my mind is still a bit foggy, but I think your approach definitely warrants a STAR..
  10. Great shots, Andy ! IMHO, and it's been said many times, ..... porting over is just not going to improve MSFS in any way. My only wish would be to see my RealAir birds one day, fully functional in the sim, .... for purely sentimental reasons.
  11. " Ladies and gentlemen, ... this is your captain speaking. Welcome to Innsbruck. Local time is 1:43PM. Temperature is a pleasant 21' C. Please ensure your seatbelt remains securely fastened until we arrive at the terminal. If Innsbruck is home ....... welcome home ! If it's a holiday, .... please enjoy your stay. " Good Luck, Everyone !
  12. I think the MSFS team were thinking of you when they added all the 'slider controls' for the various visual parameters in the sim. All of our new computer 'rocketships' will nonetheless be at the mercy of bandwidth which adds more costs for those who wish to stream everything in all it's glory.
