Since my 3080 came in I’ve been mainly flying around my local area. I’ve been using a Logitech HOTAS setup which is nice for the switches. But I do have a proper yoke still on the way.

I did bump my RAM up from 32-64gb. Just because.

 

Honeycomb makes a really nice yoke. I’m waiting for my quadrant/throttle to come in.

 

I think the latest update may have had some CPU optimization. They’re leaving a lot of performance still on the table.

 

I’m running ultra at 1080p and it stutters some times, but otherwise looks great. I need to go in and tweak some settings. I’m planning to upgrade the CPU to Zen3 tho, so will probably wait for that before spending a lot of time in the settings. Seems like the CPU is the current bottleneck.

 

I see they have DirectX 12 on their roadmap. Hopping someday they optimize things and I can OC my system enough to do smooth 1440p ultra.

I’m running maxed out at 1440 and I’m getting a fairly steady 45fps and I’m generally running Netflix on a separate screen.

Doing a flight to Georgia now.
CPU is at 22%
Ram is at 30% 19.2gb in use
Gpu is running at 78-80%

My holiday rabbit hole: https://www.onair.company/

 

It’s basically a career mode for flight sim. A sim within a sim.

what will you do with your free time while in the sim within a sim?  perhaps you could code something up that runs in game?  I bet there are enough free cycles to play wolfenstein 3D or something.

Heh, it is kind of ridiculous, but after you've flown your favorite places, it's kind of fun to have a purpose to spend time in the sim vs open world.

I often think it's weird how we spend or free time. I'm included in that.

Saw someone had a Netflix window tied to one of the cockpit displays. Cracked me up.
