I think awhile back I stated that I use FS4 99% of the time. That has changed since yesterday, I am now 100% Aerofly usage. After the SU12 update yesterday for MSFS and me using Xbox, it was the final straw, I've had enough. My nephew is coming to p/u the console and I'm done with Microsoft. Tired of the brokeness, constant issues cropping up after every update, I can't deal with anymore. IPACS congrats, I am dedicated 100% to your SIM period ! Love it 👍

Im an RC Heli only pilot too last 17 years. Started with planes in my 20's. But in 2006, switched to Heli's full time. I also have RF 9.5 and the DX controller. I didnt know you could use it for FS4 too...? Hmm, interesting idea.
I'm just putting this out there for everyone to share my experience that I am now using and that maybe those who do the same can empathize using just a controller/keyboard/mouse like me now. Since I started using MSFS I have always used a controller/keyboard/mouse cause I felt (and still do) MSFS wasn't worthy or deserves being flown with proper flight controls due to the continuous issues and bugs cropping up all the time since its inception. Now enter IPACS FS4, IMO, has always been worthy of proper flight controls unequivocally. But today I decided to minimalize my flight desk and just go with a game controller/mouse/keyboard. You know what..? I love it. I really enjoy the simplicity it offers as in less desk clutter and I can sit in my chair with my leg crossed over the the other and lean back and feel comfortable flying with the controller, mouse and keyboard close at hand. Now that's not to say the TM flight controls (throttle quadrant/sidestick) aren't an awesome way to fly more realistically with FS4, but because I'm a "casual" flyer and have limited desk space (yes I need gaming desk), I am finding that I now prefer using just a controller like I do for MSFS. Once I acquire a gaming desk, I may or may not, dig out my TM control stuff again and reuse it for FS4, who knows. All I know is right now, I'm enjoying this new found flying simplicity.
Any others empathize with this...? Discuss........................
There is no reason why you should. The team are developing this great sim for all of us, but they are continually interrupted by demands from people who want the sim redesigned to suit their own personal wishes, with no regard for other users.
How about just letting them get on with their work? They do know what they are doing.
Somebody's in a wee bit of a snit. Excuse me for asking. Geeez.
And Yes I know they know what they're doing and they're doing a bang up job that's why I have this SIM in the first place. *sigh*
So what's new and exciting IPACS coming down the pipe for us...? Haven't seen anything new since the Concord
Ah, I C, K, thank you sir
As you see in the pucture, what does the (2) bottom settings do : I set them to "low" because I dont know what they do or how they affect the SIM...?
Airplane in Hamburg needs a fix IPACS. If I see anything else I'll post it. But lots of floating trees and buildings in "various" regions of the swiss alps, and around europe in deep river valleys and gorges. Too many to list or post.
Same here. I set them to medium and now they're gone.
Thanks for the info
I've been running with quality settings on high. I'll try putting them to medium next time I play.
I also have trees on high and buildings on medium.
Your welcome sir
Its a fine balance between, trees, buildings, textures, clouds, wind, etc. I still get the black patches but it depends on the camera view I'm looking with. I live with it because its really not that bad. To be privilaged to have such an awesome SIM like Aero Fly, its worth the minor inconvenience.
perhaps my CPU is underpowered? (Intel Core i7-6700K 4.0GHz).
No your ok.
I'm running a Lenovo T5 i7 10700 8 core @ 2.9ghrtz and I run the SIM fine. I just can't run the quality settings in "high" or "ultra". I'm okay with "medium" or "low" settings. However I do have the trees on "high", buildings on "medium", everything else is "low" and I'm having no issues with that.
I get these too sometimes but Im not using VR. I posted awhile back about this same issue. As it was put to me, it has something to do with video card memory if I recall. I only have a GTX 1660 SUPER card with 6g's of GDDR6 VRAM, Im borderline on running the SIM. I run everything on low to medium but still get those black moving patches.
Am I to understand this Cub is being developed by IPACS for FS4...? If so..."sweet"
Just left MSFS for AFS4 today....
Congratulations brother, you have seen the light . You'll never go back "I hope". We need more defectors like you. Aero Fly is the absolute best , MSFS is just a fancy flight game with eye candy.
I've noticed that too. I don't fly US very often if at all. Europe, Switzerland, Innsbruck, Italy etc. is where its at for me. So beautiful over there the scenery.
I've yet to try VR, but I did try it with a cell phone setup once and got virtigo and almost brought up my lunch.
For the record, I can't do roller coasters, sick like a dog after, and it lasts almost 3 days the after affects.
Okay made some more changes in the quality settings and cloud conditions etc. and it seems to be giving me a good balance. Still slight glitching in the US (as expected) but none over in Europe (never get glitching over there). Flying the F-18 is the test when strafing the ground at high speed. So far so good.
in my case, everything seems normal to me, but I don't know if there is always too much compared to reality?
My config is all on ultra and under vulcan.
Are you on OpenGL, try changing that?
I also notice that on the left side you are missing a building?
I'm on OpenGL, I don't have Vulcan, not sure if my video card can handle Vulcan. As far as Quality settings, I can't go any higher than "LOW" because I only have a GTX 1660 SUPER for a video card @ 6g's GDDR6 VRAM. I've tried higher settings and I get glitching and stuttering over heavy 3D scenery. On "LOW", I'm ok, except those moving black patch's out the window over the terrain sometimes. I can live with those cause I have no choice. I need a beefier video card but its just not in the budget at the present moment.
UPDATE: I tweaked my Quality settings:
Shadow Quality: LOW
Terrain, Texture etc. : MEDIUM
Seems to have given me more buildings, but there is an ever so slight glitch as I'm flying low with a Heli touring around. I can live with it. I do 99% of my flying in Europe where I get no glitching or stuttering at all, only in the US this happens.
Anecdote: I've been to Washington with the Army Cadets here in Canada when I was 13. We were inside the White House, States Capital Building, Arlington National Cemetery, Mt Vernon etc. We stayed at Military base Balfour or Belvoir or something like that, don't remember the name.
I mentioned this before but it keeps happening from time to time and it needs to be fixed. Sometimes there are trees on the south lawn of the white house and sometimes there isn't. The states capital is intermixed with another building. I haven't changed any of my quality settings as you can see from the images. What is causing this...?
Nope. I just plugged n' played. I even deleted the TM drivers and everything works as it should.
I dont have the assistance for landing lights turned on. It comes on while I 'm flying enroute. I turn it off, and few seconds later it turns on again.
