I didn't get that far - as soon as the "musical accompaniment" started, I shut it down. :angry: :angry: :angry:

'Propliner' is actually short for 'Proper airliner, with big rumbly radials'

How the hell has this guy 'flown' all of those aeroplanes???? Anyway, yeah the rendition of Auckland isn't great but I don't think it's any worse than anything we've seen before. They really need to hire a tree trimmer around some of these airports :blink: :blink:

My initial reaction was wow that looks disappointing but on watching it again if the trees were smaller it wouldn't actually look too bad really and I'm sure there'll be mods/patches to fix that very quickly. The scenery looks so much more immersive than anything that's come before that I'm just looking forward to getting out and exploring the whole world, even if it's not perfectly accurate to real life. Way back in FS2002/2004 I used to love doing long exploration flights where I'd just pick a country or area of the globe and just visit a bunch of airfields in something low and slow and see what I could find over the course of a weekend or afternoon, however the appeal of that started to wear off as the old scenery engine started to increasingly show its limitations - there was only so many times you could land on the same generic runway that 90% of the airports had. In the end I just flew around NZ with the Orbx scenery and never really ventured anywhere else. Let's face it when we're starting to complain about things like the trees being too big or the snow being on the wrong side of a mountain we've got it pretty good really!

It's more than the trees. he whole layout is wrong. You would never guess it was an international airport from what Ive seen. Still I will wait see what happens after release. Hopefully Flightbeam aren't too far off with their NZAA scenery.

You need to check in the mainboard manual and BIOS - it *may* be possible to add a plug-in graphics card and then free up the memory.
Or otherwise check around for a used 'gaming PC' that might be more cost effective

I've cancelled my order for the basic version and gone the full hog and ordered the Premium Deluxe.... I have high hopes with this sim after seeing all the videos etc...especially since I'm mainly a VFR flyer!

I'm waiting on two things before I put my $$ down:
1) my hire and test of the HP Reverb G2
2) real-world usage on a wide scale post-release

The sim I can handle - the VR purchase will give my wife a hernia - so I need to 'plan' this carefully :)
Of course, I'll only go for it if the VR is up to my high expectations, and I hope it will be this time.

A good time to point out that this sim could really benefit from a custom NZCH...

Is that Forest Field (NZFF) where they do the take off/landings in the 747 and A320? Sad to think that Ian didn't get to see this.

The seamless multiplayer really is amazing, it is great to have another user 'drop in' for a moment when I was flying along the Auckland waterfront, before tearing off again, for instance. (Other users tend to fly faster aircraft than me, so don't hang around long.) And that's without setting anything up, you just share the skies with other simmers.

Jeff -- launch day will be interesting, that's for sure. It might be worthwhile considering the fact that we might not all get to fly straight away, just to avoid any disappointment. Will it bring the internet down? Maybe, maybe not.

I don't know where they were taking off from there but I'm simply loving the whole msfs2020 concept. It is indeed a pity that Ian won't be able to share in this milestone with the rest of us.
