  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Appreciated. I’m checking a variety of auto pilot tutorials as I’m trying to learn the G1000.
  4. At least the game still registers your flight time (at least I think it does, need to check).
  5. Yup, plenty of times. There seems to either be random or you have to hit a specific spot for it to trigger.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. It’s weird because the map is right there, there’s just a layer over it, like a light fog you can see through.
  11. 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.
  12. 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. 🙄
  13. This has nothing to do with what we were discussing. What we were discussing and what my post was about is that articles like the one posted on the previous page are ignorant because they present an extreme view on the game's state, what it "means" or what it "represents", not unlike the extreme views which defend its faults.
  14. Sure, yes. Except the game isn’t broken, it’s not the worst thing a publisher has put out there, its working conditions- which is sadly an industry staple- do not cause a crisis of conscience (not more than other games), it doesn’t have toxic masculinity and it’s not the ultimate example of what’s wrong with the industry, especially when gamers have behaved much worse in other situations or when it actually tries to be ambitious compared to other AAA titles or while it’s offering storytelling, writing and characters which most people find amazing. So, yes, a lot of extreme shit has been written in this thread, we agree on that.
  15. Things can be equally bad for different reasons. But yes, it's not a 1:1 analogy.
  16. I guess you are going to have hyperbolic opinions like these when you post articles which include things like this: This is actually equally as bad and ignorant as those on the extremes who are attacking or defending the game.
  17. I do hope they have a 2K res mode with better graphics and full detail, photogrammetry, etc.
  18. This looks incredible. It can’t possibly look like this on SX, can it?
  19. Ok, I have finally be getting around to spend time with this great console. Can someone please tell me what is the consensus with color depth, 442 stuff, etc? They are way over my head and I googling it really didn't explain what I should do. I have an Oled B7, so its 4K@60.
  20. Becoming Rockstar is something impossible to force. On the other hand, Rockstar hasn’t produced something equivalent of Witcher 3 since San Andreas imo so...
  21. Oh yes, the famous approach of “post a Twitter clip analysis of gameplay systems at work”.
  22. It was reviewed on PC and it certainly wasn't unplayable. Besides, bugs can exist and the game still be able to showcase its merits. Releasing it on this state was certainly the right decision for the company at this moment, but reaching this moment was a string of bad management and shitty decisions. Either way the game looks really amazing and hopefully the more serious problems will soon be fixed for everyone.
  23. Ah, I didn’t know you care. I played some hours over the prologue as well and I stopped because I would never play it without the next gen patch, as I have said months ago. Why would I? Even in these hours though and despite the bugs (haven’t had major ones on the SX yet), I have seen things other RPGs have only ever dreamed of, especially on now the main story and characters are intertwined or express themselves. The city itself is something never before seen. I hope CD gives a much needed break to their team and then proceed with fixing any major problems. This already has “classic” written all over it -despite the technical issues the majority of the reviews have praised it- and when it finally becomes as it was supposed to be at launch, it will really let its achievements shine even more. I hope these impressions will still be with me after I finish it of course.
  24. How else is he going to use those fancy sky color changing mods?
