    Hi, thanks for the info, but as your are talking about a Paris Scenery, how did you get it into your MAC version, or do you operate FS2 on a WIN machine (...from your specs it looks like it)?

    No it's a MacBook Pro but with Vega 20 GPU. Very fast but an eGPU would be even better.

    Paris can be installed as ApfelFlieger described. Of course the updated Paris images 2.0 package is huge ~7.67 Gb but spectacular.

    Fullscreen, 100, ultra, maxed out everything

    MBP Vega 20

    60 fps, 30 fps on 4k monitor (except scenery like Paris drops fps at times - 85% pixel density helps a lot with that)

    Once the 737 touches down under the copilot’s control, I deployed the thrust reversers via trigger switch on the joystick, where I assigned the thrust reverser function.

    Apparently reverse thrust not required when Capt. Seatpants can land the 744 on a dime & come to a stop a few metres from the edge of the cliff on Catalina.


    How fast was he flying after takeoff?

    George or Bob (how some of my colleges call him) can also land a 747 in Catalina. "Sometimes" if all goes as planned.

    200 ktas but then it's his 6750 fpm climb rate while banking at ~150 ktas lol


    I'm definitely trying Catalina now

    So far, I don't have these problems. My SetUp is:



    I noticed that it ran rounder when the graphic settings increased.:/ I will test this in the coming days.

    I have the exact same MacBook.


    As a simple test I just watched George the reckless co-pilot almost stall the 744 on take-off from SFO - minimum 45 fps Maximum 60 fps. More or less the same fps with the A320 but George doesn't almost kill everyone. George is irrelevant lol but great frame rates and it looks fantastic with all possible graphics options MAXED out.


    At 85% pixel density & Ultra quality it's almost locked at a constant 60 fps and I think the best setting for a maxed out late 2018 MBP

    It's good to know the Arrow is Mac compatible but the installer isn't. You can only download an .exe from JF and you can't use an .exe on a Mac (at least not just like that). On a Mac you usually get a .dmg file for install, although in this case a simple zip with all files in it might also do the trick (for manual installation).

    There is a Mac option for the download & a zip file is the result. The 2 aircraft folders should then be manually installed to:


    /Users/yourusername/Library/Containers/com.aerofly.aerofly-fs-2-mac/Data/Library/Application Support/Aerofly FS 2/aircraft/


    The aircraft appear in the selection menu but on start the aircraft defaults back to the c172.

    Possibly a result of UNC/Posix double slash mismatch in the path? Possibly also upper/lowercase mismatch in the username?

    I am aware that Just Flight will release a C152 soon and I'm sure it will be great.

    I have also been working on a C152 project for the last five month. It' certainly not as good as the Just Flight version will be but here it is.

    This is my very first aircraft ever

    Very unfair of you - to set such an extremely high standard - especially since it's your first. And free. :!:

    I have found this page, but there is only patch for main.mcf file in Windows file structure. I am MAC user and I can not find location of this file. Even system searching utility can not find it.

    It's here:
