So, what's up with the new FS2020?
A general meeting place for all pilots!

From what I've read from real world reviews, it takes a strong computer to run it properly. This isn't a new scenario with MS however as this has been their pattern since the beginning .New Software requires new hardware, then the hardware catches up, then the software takes a leap forward and the process starts over again... Wink

Screenshots are awesome though...

Been watching some of the beta demos on YouTube.

Solo (better graphics)

Have heard about some glitches (flying under Golden Gate results ion crashes) being worked out.
Also if scenery is 'missing' you can download from Google maps and FS2020 will 'intelligently' fill in missing objects in the game.
However this can have mixed results as game mapping makes some 3-D assumptions from 2-D information.

But it still seems to be pretty good.
You'd have to know what you're looking at to spot the omissions/differences.

I have it, I like it for VFR flying in some areas (where the mesh is accurate). In other areas it is pretty bad.
My system:

SUS P8Z77-V Pro, 16GB DIMM DDR3, i7-3770 OC 4,0 GHz, GTX 2080 8GB, Thrustmaster Hotas Warthog, Crosswind Rudder Pedals

MSFS runs smoothly, with moderate settings. I will stick with P3DV5 for a long while, I like aircraft with a PMDG/A2A/FS-Labs quality.

Thanks Gunter! I've been looking at upgrading at some point in the future. Wink
