I may have went overboard on displays

Those two middle displays should match the two edge displays.

It's one single display.  I wanted a higher quality display for the primary.  Wasn't willing to pony up the dough

I realized that after I posted it.
Couldn’t be bothered to post a different pic. Imgur was having some issues that day

Stay away from the glass cockpits at first. Let the computer handle mixture and prop. Watch some tutorials.

Part of the problem are the bugs. Weird shit happens and some stuff just doesn't work.You never know if you're doing something wrong or if the sim is busted. 

 

I've gotten pretty good with the TMB 930 and the Garmin 3000. It seems to be one of the better implemented planes. I can probably walk people through that.

it's a pretty good plane. Fast and agile. 

 

Flying from Vancouver to Seattle. Hard to tell, but the moon is reflecting off of the water by the left wing. It's not even ultimate settings.

Here's final into Seattle.

I'm not 100% sure that is the type of TBM I've been in.  It looks similar at the very least.  It sat 6 people (pilot, co-pilot, 4 passengers) if that narrows it down at all.  the plane was really nice though.

looking at the videos of this game it's a pretty impressive graphical engine they are using.  I mean, not quite photo realistic yet but very minimal artifacts.

the stills are almost photorealistic but something about watching live video looks less so.

Much better experience this time.  Took off from Nome, somewhat figured out how to use the Autopilot functions to hold the plane steady on a heading.  At one point I was farting around with all the buttons and switches.  Noticed this big dial under the throttle control that said something about switching the fuel tanks.  So I clicked it which apparently shut off fuel and the engines shut off.  So there I was frantically trying to figure out how to turn the engine back on.  Haha
 
I think i need to upgrade my RAM.  I only have 16GB 2666.  conflicting info online on if I could upgrade to 3000 or 3200 without having to do some stuff in the BIOS that I really don't want to do.  So considering a kit of 32gb 2666.
 
Anywoo, below are some screenies..
