Looks great! How do you like it? I'm thinking of finally making the switch from FSX still (yikes!).

So far it's great.
Been fine tuning the settings to get a decent FPS and still have all the eye candy.
It will also be a hell of a lot better once all the addon manufacturers have caught up (still missing the 777, 737 and FTX Vectors)

Will try and upload some shots of the approach / landing later.

Dominic,

Looks great! Please post more pics and feedback. I am also on the fence right now about making the switch. I am sure there are many others too.

Thanks!

Here are some more pics as promised

(Note: If you like flying the 777, 737, A320, etc. I would hold off as I don't believe these addons are ready yet)

Also, what graphics card are you currently using? I need to invest in one, too.

Also, did you let Gary taxi? Is that why the plane is in the grass? ;)

I'm currently running a Strix 1070, but will be upgrading to the 1080 ti in about a months time.

Yep, it is Flightbeams Dulles scenery.
I currently have it capped at 40 fps (and it normally stays at the 40 fps mark), but only so that I can turn everything up to the max.
If I bring things like autogen and texture draw distance down 1 notch, I can usually get a steady 60fps (sometimes fluctuates when panning around in a virtual cockpit scene).

I think this was on approach to 01C and was just about to cross the threshold. Didn't see that it looks like I'm in the grass until you mentioned it :)
