What goes on?

Most of us know that the missing sock is the larval form of the wire coathanger, but what has happened here? I thought for a moment I was back in Sydney :o
but it was Noo Yoick, in AFS2

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

Real as it gets... Hell Gate is the granddaddy of Sydney's bridge (and Tyne Bridge too).
I did not realise until I did the Bridge Walk, that the very expensive granite buttresses are pure decoration!

Nice pic, is your performance affected by the scenery?

Ta, Charl - Departing Rwy33 at Lakehurst, you cross miles of dense forest, and then before you clear that, the city comes in sight and of course JFK and La Guardia come into the equation too, even though they are still out of sight.
Any one of those would have my FSX (on Superbeast) staggering, any two would have SB on its knees, and if there was AI involved, FSX would probably be running backwards.
On MiniBeast, low on storage, not very fast, with only a moderate GPU, AFS2 just runs smoothly, except when my clumsy handling of the joystick asks too much of the R7 350X GPU and it stops momentarily to get its breath :rolleyes: The Extra 300 is not ideal for sightseeing.

The only thing, but only to view with the second view on on it... it looks great, but whithout AI in the air and on the ground it is in my eyes a bit lifeless. But with this and ATC it seemed, that it has no better performance then the competitors?

Hello Andreas - the thing is, AFS2 is a new sim with a new engine, not a modified FSX like P3D and DTG. I think it has great potential. I agree it needs some frilly bits, but they will come, when the team has them ready.
