  1. Being playing this for some hours now. Got it on PC and used the ini settings for eliminating pop up (there’s one for NPCs now as well). Man, what difference does it make to see the world solid. A very beautiful game. I am surprised at how nice the world building is and the ideas around it seem well thought out. Huge amounts of banter between characters which makes everything much more immersive. I am going back and forth between Japanese and English VO. I prefer Japanese but there’s so much context banter that I have to read during play that it will be a mess when more characters appear. Any thoughts? Also, it’s buttery smooth at 1440p maxed out and the combat is really great (when you understand what’s going on).
  2. I tried the demo and the world literally pops in into existence all over the place. Rocks, grass, bushes, NPCs… Enemies seem fine.
  3. Only for the environment. NPCs seem to be hardcoded and there’s no ini setting for that. It’s an embarrassment and I was really looking forward to the game, especially considering the improvements in story, characters etc.
  4. Wow. I wonder if there is a chance that they are going to fix this.
  5. The pop in is the main thing keeping me from buying it actually. It is unacceptable. Is it really that bad?
  6. See if anything’s weird with sensitivities in the controls. Put everything on default again. There has been issues with planes pulling left and right too much on a runway since the PC launch. But it also may be the wind.
  7. Does anyone have issues with the autopilot going haywire at random points? For example, everything going ok and then the plane suddenly turns left completely for no reason. I have seen some complaints about it but not sure if it has something to do with the full realism settings in using or control sensitivity etc. I’m flying the Diamond DN40.
  8. I’m having a weird bug (?). When I press LB+Dpad to go at close view of the cockpit and then cursor mode to click on instruments, it also affects the yoke when I move the circle. So I can’t really use cursor mode, unless I use free cam to look closely and interact with the cockpit.
  9. That would be great. Hopefully it will happen at some point. For a game so close to realism it has an embarrassing lack of guides or ways to receive help in game. Having someone as a digital instructor seems such a missed opportunity.
  10. Thanks a bunch :). Will start checking them soon, as there’s so many different ones.
  11. This is one of the things I am having difficulty grasping my head around for some reason and Squirrel's tutorial really doesn't provide information around it. He also goes into a straight flight path so I don't understand how to set up the auto pilot to follow my custom waypoints. Is there any tutorial more specific on how to use CDI heading and auto pilot?
  12. I’m trying to clear something with the auto pilot. Does it fully work on custom waypoints on VFR? I set a flight path but whatever I do it doesn’t follow the line connecting the waypoints and it just seems to go straight from “arrival” to “departure” waypoints.
  13. Yeah, that was incredible. I’m watching now a basic IFR and Auto Pilot on the G1000 GPS by Brady Skye and it’s good, but there are some things he doesn’t explain what they do. I have a couple of other ones lined up that hopefully can explain not only the buttons and such but what do the references and terms mean etc.
  14. Appreciated. I’m checking a variety of auto pilot tutorials as I’m trying to learn the G1000.
  15. A link for that tutorial please?
  16. At least the game still registers your flight time (at least I think it does, need to check).
  17. Yup, plenty of times. There seems to either be random or you have to hit a specific spot for it to trigger.
  18. You click on the ATC tower from the main menu bar when you click the left stick. From then on you will see some options and you can tune in, ask for take off clearance etc. Don’t forget to turn on the landing help and taxi by clicking on the flight assistant (from the same menu bar). You will see guiding lines so you can follow to the correct taxi lane etc. Also turn on objectives and you can get general help on when to release the brakes etc.
  19. Orbx stuff are great but they bring the fps down in most cases, despite their “fps friendly” claims. There are a couple of meshes to buy right now, Switzerland and New Zealand, but im sure environment packs will be available soon. Hopefully in properly optimized versions. After leaving Cessna I went for the Diamond Da40ng as my go to plane. It has great specs, proper aviation tech and, most importantly, a great peripheral view, really really great. I’m focusing on small flights at the moment and learning the procedures, from starting the engine to properly get ATC clearness, etc. I’m playing on total simulation on piloting, damage, etc and no helps at all (but mechanical damage is off). It’s hard to say the least . I bought the VFR training package which explains many things, but it’s not so well implemented and it assumes knowledge on various things. With that said, I went out of it totally capable of properly trimming and learning how to use low speeds on low altitudes without stalling and enjoying a stable flight. After spending time flying around in south Norway, I will take a flight over Iceland today and hopefully I won’t crash and burn. There are many little airfields there which are completely basic, so it will be a good opportunity to test landing approaches. For those who haven’t done it and need some help, you can activate “landing approaches” help from the menu which will bring out a red path in game, while you fly, which guides you on how to approach the airstrips for landing. All in all, what a game.
  20. There’s a constant awe with this game and the gameplay is really something. Trying to learn a plane and it’s systems and fly it as properly as you can, dealing with ATC, flight plans, etc is really rewarding. I got to say though, this barely reaches 30 fps on the X for most of the time (and I’m not talking about cities etc). Hopefully a couple of patches will help with performance.
  21. Does anyone know how to map keys on the controller? Am I being totally thick? I want to set the heading indicator from “d” to the controller, but no matter what I do I can only remap buttons and combinations which are already mapped.
  22. It’s weird because the map is right there, there’s just a layer over it, like a light fog you can see through.
  23. Does anyone know why some areas look clear on the world map and why some seem to have a layer over them? It can’t be clouds cause I have chosen clear skies.
  24. Do I have to do anything special to make the controller circle thing appear? Can’t seem to be able to navigate through the some menus at all.
