    one thing that releasing games that are so demanding ensure is pc upgrades and sales.

    It's interesting that the AI aircraft that are real-world flights actually go around if you get in their way when they're trying to land and air traffic control automatically will tell you to go around if they take too long to clear the runway. I'm playing it with a GTX 970 and Zen 2 3100 and it does fine.

    the starting price for an index is more than triple that of the quest 2 If you are looking to get into VR and not make such an investment the quest 2 would have been the perfect headset... but facebook is really trying its best to make the descision very difficult -.-

    Evile Gaming2 months ago

    IDK what's with those M$ Flight sim specs, from the streams I've seen, it looks decidedly average (and some of the world detail is worse than Google Earth). With respect to the Oculus once you have it installed you never need to go online with it again ever, you've be a fool to use the oculus store (as it ties your purchases to that headset) outside of buying Virtual Desktop so you can use Steam as your VR storefront/VR renderer. I hate FB with a passion (my router even has a rule blocking their domains completely), but at the moment they have the only cabless HMD on the market, and this is shady as fk. Guess my quest is going on Ebay unless someone does a cabless HMD in the next 2 years.

  21. StuntpilootStef

    StuntpilootStef2 months ago

    My overclocked 1070 actually gets 40 fps in Flight Simulator at a little higher than high settings at 1080p. Yes it's a heavy game, but even at medium settings at 1080p it looks very good. What you also need to understand is that sims of this sort tend to be very, very heavy. It doesn't matter what you have, you'll probably not be able to max it at launch.

  24. TaSwavo

    TaSwavo2 months ago

    MS Flight Sim always had TOP spec beyond what people REALLY HAD. They are NOT doing what these "every 2 years we put out shit". Ultra is NOT what it CAN do - that is more. And if you see people with lower specs doing .... it's awesome. I will be getting new pc before (maybe Christmas) and will expect it to handle this NOW in my price range .BUT I expect my pc can run it if I dumb down. I have several AC games I can't run (Odysseus fine but many before don't work) And your comments about skills - yes - the real pilots say that, with a bit of guidance it would help anyone to land any plane covered. Oculus = FB = ALL EVIL CORPS - like Steam (and their 30% hit on all companies that make games FOR US). What really needs to happen is people to use other things. EPIC for games, and other things for VR Most non-retards (even young people) are avoiding FB now - my son (20) does not use FB much.

    If you believe, for a second, that Epic did this for the community, then you're drunk. They did it because fortnite is an extremely profitable business, and they want that 30% too. The fact that they planned this lawsuit from the beginning shows that they are just as bad as apple, and this time, they were on the losing end. Obviously can't have that. This is one instance where i am for apple, simply because fuck epic. Atleast apple is well-known for being a cunt company, while Epic is not. Time to tarnish their reputation too.

  40. Beastkingman

    Beastkingman3 months ago

    Almost all the features they are awing over were in fsx real weather, ai aircraft, and 1 to 1 scale and just like fsx the game is not using all my hardware theres worse aspects just get close to a tree in a strom and the trees are crap the water is basically a giant wading pool if u land gear down with a 747 and the wheels dont even go underwater the camera is crap in my opinion every plane has a single livery theres a whole host of problems when u ignore the shiny graphics i will give the flight model the praise it deserves it is really good but back to bad when it snows it doesn't look like snow as much as fog it is a ok game it IS NOT worth 80 Canadian dollars it has good side but theres parts of the game that scream knock off 5 dollar game some things are good and some are bad plane interiors arent finished theres lots of inop button

    Bong Jovi3 months ago

    Everytime someone says their high-end pc has a hard time running a game at ultra settings, there's always idiots going "might as well just get an xbox then" An xbox would run the same game at like medium settings. And you can't change them. And your xbox can't do all the shit my pc does. And my PC is upgradable. And my PC won't get a RROD 3 weeks after I bring it home.

  45. Theodor Butters

    Theodor ButtersMonth ago

    To be honest for $500-600 you can build a PC that gives you the same performance as a console and gives you all the other stuff you mentioned However, some of the cheaper consoles (like the Xbox One S) can be had for $250-300 and even though you have to pay a multiplayer subscription and then play games at a lower quality, it's still the cheapest way to just get into playing games for the next 3-4 years. I mean $250 spread out over 4 years is $5 per month, add another $5 a month for multiplayer and $5 a month for games, and that would be by far the cheapest way to get into playing games without having to worry about hardware.

    Is MSFS 2020 really that bad? I've not noticed any issues myself and I've got a 7 year old CPU. Specifically I've got an old I7 (4770k) a gtx 1080 (non ti) and 16gb DDR3 and seems to run pretty well at high 1440p

  54. Barret

    The specs don't sound accurate. I fly at a stable 60fps on ultra settings with slightly nerfed shadows using a measly 2060 Super. It looks fantastic and runs smoothly.

  55. Sim737Pilot

    Sim737Pilot3 months ago

    So Linus, I know you're a smart dude when it comes to PC stuff, but MSFS 2020 has a way to go with flight modeling. It will get better with time, but the default aircraft are very lackluster once you get past the glossy paint and into the cockpit. There are so many buttons INOP that a person can't practice the real world procedures needed in an emergency with this sim. Should have been retitled MS World Simulator which they did a great job of.

    One thing to point out RE Apple vs Epic and the question of why Google wasn't targetted, Google Pay (which takes a cut per in app transaction) is OPTIONAL. An app can have in app transactions and NOT use Google Pay. Therefore there is no lock in.

    Microsoft Flight Simulator is bested by X-Plane 10 or 11 and P3D. So to say there wasn’t anything there and they were and now back, like they are the only game/sim in this racket is absurd. X-Plane and P3D have better and more realistic physics and ability to be sims than MS Flight Sim.

    Flight simulator is the longest running Microsoft software product line in the world. It predates windows. I'm also from the lower mainland so I can tell ya Vancouver looks amazing! A 70 GB update is coming within the next 7 days. It has some performance enhancements, fixes sim crashes and installer updates. Flight Sim weather is run by Meteoblue. You can see how the weather works in the sim here: Discovery series: uslikes.info/house/ZXWdtap5maFupbY/video.html - The answer is yes. You can fly through a hurricane. Went into Hurricane Laura yesterday lol.

I am running an R5 3600 16GB ram and a 1660Ti runit in 1080p and see a minimum of 35fps ANYWHERE. The only airport that hits me with micro stutters is Tokyo, but that seems to be a global issue.

    Why are people saying this about MSFS2020? I have an 8700k and 2080 super and its crazy smooth on high settings. You'd be completely fine with less than I have. That and for people who aren't used to flight sims....30fps is totally acceptable. Added to that the lifespan of these games are so long that future tech grows into the game. Same exact thing happened with FSX.
