    But I am excited. I don't know how I will avoid buying a new good computer, FS2020 and at least a god joystick next year.

    Looks really nice! Just imagine a PDMG product on this platform.

    The fps with Randazzo's QF-B744ER 'Wunala Dreaming' fsx at Heathrow.

    28 is my answer. Is it allowed to upload the evidence? I know, this platform is optimized for performance, so, let's try to avoid traffic.

    No direct upload. Which is ok and easier for me to enforce copyright. So, if you need evidence for the 28, leave me a message.

    Back on topic, this one was opened for the successor of fsx, which I call fsXI.

    My criterion for the new one is clear. Ask Captain Robert S. Randazzo if he's willing to publish his worldwide famous Boeing 747 not only for fsx, prepar3d and xplane.

    But also for the 2020 Microsoft fsXI. I don't buy it without his participation!

    I don't use faster frame rates with the frame limiter set to 90. I only let my video card decide when to go down to 30 or less.

    And I bet, your video card is as clever as mine. Have you ever tried something like aerosoft London Heathrow fsx? I own this brilliant piece of digital artwork. That's an airport where I discovered that I don't have to reduce my video card to less what it is. Still with the limiter at 90, aerosoft Heathrow fsx gives me... frames, hm, that very clearly depends on the aircraft which I use. Choose one.

    Don't say Captain Randazzo's BA-B744, I also own her, but wouldn't that be too normal? I rather think of something like a Flyin Kangaroo. If you buy Randazzo's B744, you also own the Wunala Dreaming. Which in my eyes is one of the most beautiful birds on this planet!
    And Heathrow since a couple of months is the only European airport (!) which really fits.

    Sydney? Oscar Echo Juliet is type Boeing 747-400ER. Ready for Take/Off.

    PS: I know that somebody decided to get rid of Wunala. So, as far as I know Oscar Echo Juliet 744ER is still in the air. But no longer as the most beautiful Boeing 747 which I've ever seen. That's where 40 year old men step in who still use a semi-pro flight simulator at home. With Wunala Dreaming.

    The human eye can not detect the difference at frame rates above 25 - 30fps. Using faster frame rates than 30fps is a waste of processor speed and power which can be better used for scenery generation.

    . I'm astonished, or .. as a rather friendly grandmother in London is often quoted, 'I'm amused'. You run fsx with the default frame limiter set to 30? Well, that sounds ok, if you use a really high resolution like 1080p .
    My question is, do you experience situations in your fsx when the fps are lower than 30?

    My trick is, I use 'only 900p' . And I still experience situations with 30 fps or less. But I assume that my video card ventilates very very good with the frame limiter set to 90. Which I achieve with most of the fsx default aircraft, like Beech Baron 58 or Beech King Air 350!
    I've never been an nvidia man, I use amd radeon since ..clearly more than a decade. Today with not more than 2GB video memory. But for me that works like a charm.

    And now they've announced fsXI or fs11.. with a clear question mark, what video card and how many GB of video memory do you need to achieve 90 fps with a 900p resolution in fs11?

    I have found remarks by my favorite games magazine, and they usually always say something about the system requirements, but fsXI really seems to be so new that they haven't yet found the perfect configuration. Nevertheless, here is what they say until today (in German, but I can translate if you want), trailer included.
    The comments are also worth a look, imho!

    Das GameStar Magazin mit einer ersten Meinung zu MS fsXI

    PS: Is that the man who I talked to 5 or 8 years ago with the words 'wouldn't you like to deepen your experience in a flight simulator..' . The answer must be 'yes'.

    I currently run a dual cpu 3.4 GHz i7 motherboard with 16 GB ddram and an nVidea gtx 660 running 4GB RAM.

    It runs FSX quite well at 30 FPS provided I don’t go much more than 50% on the scenery and traffic. I should really drop the FPS to 25 as the human eye and brain cannot distinguish any difference at faster rates.

    Running it? Whatever you have will work. Running it at a decent combination of graphics quality and frame rate? USD 1200 (just for the tower) if your definition of decent is not too tough.

    That's my guess.

    Very nice. How much am I going to have to pay for a computer capable of running it ?

    And for the first part. I just came across the news by chance and thought I would share it. Nothing to do with wanting to throw you out of this platform or anything like that.

    Go ahead and reply something so you are the last one.
    Oh Gabe, you know that I sometimes expect to be thrown out of this platform. But not by you, at least not as long as you don't become a moderator.

    And not on such a brilliant racing sunday, in good mood, with more than seven hours to go..

    In case of a doubt, I still have one or two properly attended topics which I have opened..

    Btw, do you know how many posts you need to be a good administrator? If it only were the number of posts, then I only know 1 man here on jetphotos who still is better than you.
    Theoretically, we both are old enough. I can say why I'll never apply for 'an office' here at jetphotos. I understand an office which only can be enforced online as a Burden. And if you are unlucky, you become a lightning conductor for people who are ten years younger than you, who are not here since 15 years but only since 10 years...
    who seem to share an airport with you...

    Nobody knows what I'm talkin about. Probably except 1. Back on topic.

    A new msfs for pc, that would be msfs XI (11). I know that, because I own and fly and edit (?!) the X . And I know at least two airports which urgently need an improvement, compared to the X version.
    1. SBBR Brasilia. Which could be developed as a fs/XI masterpiece. Sloped on all four ends. With the new 2014 Terminal layout, quite modern, Lohausen style (?) , or newer. And, what always suprises me, with at least one parking position for overseas jets like for example a TP-A339 (type heavy, 72 x 72 m). The fsx default SBBR has nothin, so I helped myself..
    2. SBBE Belém. plus at least one 'type heavy' parking position, which the real thing has.

    Btw, nobody has read my last entry here in the simulator section? Maraba is much too small for type B744. So what did I do. Brasilia - Maraba - Belém, with a VFR Maraba bypass (without landing). During the Brazil simulator journey, I learned to take the fuel for the return flight with me. You don't find that many alternates. What a 747 is good for.

    Fs/XI. Not without type 747, I'd say.
