Now it's out of beta, when one of you lovely people are on could someone fly over Alton Towers / Blackpool Pleasure beach please? I'm interested in seeing how it handles the modelling of rollercoasters.

 

it does not...at all...infact, blackpool has houses in the middle of a low res texture of the park...and no tower.

 

it needs some hand built assets i think for fancy things

Fucking hell.

 

After we earlier optimism after it actually began downloading the gamed it has stopped at 31Gb, crashed, and now will not start at all.

 

I have never, as far as I can recall,  had an installation problem with any other platform/service. I have constant shite like this from the MS store so am finished with it. The game can wait until my next PC in a few months...

I've downloaded the NVIDIA driver update through GeForce Experience, and whilst Flight Simulator is shown the application says it "can't be optimised". Any idea why that is? It's the PC Game Pass version I'm playing.

I'm using a 1gb connection and the scenery quality in places is very... um... blurry. Went over Cowes on the Isle of Wight and the boats were a white smudge. Look on Bing.com  for the same location and it's very clear. It's not like I'm travelling at 9,000mph so it can't keep up either. Maybe it's just struggling to keep up with providing the scenery to this many people concurrently? Surely they must have known this would happen though. Maybe it's just me but is anyone else seeing this?

To continue my tips thread:

 

Still needed to be closed another twice. Once it threatened to download another 57GB, but either my internet connection has really improved or it didn’t really need to because it took about 2 minutes. Then I needed to relaunch again. 
 

And lo! I was in the videogame. I’ve had to turn it off almost immediately because of real life, but based on the first training message with a few sensible options reduced it seems to be ticking along quite nicely at 1080p on Ultra. It’s not exactly a dense environment so that might need further fiddling, but it’s a good start.

its so annoying as it all boots up and your ready to start on your settings, then crashes , then starts the 64gb patch.


Are you sure it’s actually downloading anything? I had a fictional patch and no-one on Twitter seems to have another...

its a 64gb patch, unless that's part of the main dl ?


did it really complete the first time?

its downloading lots of individual files from a manifest, then uncompressing them. The number given on that screen is usually just the amount to go.

 

its a tad broken in that it’s possible to get past the download screen in certain cases while not having completed the download; and then things don’t work properly. But when you reload you start again where you’d left off.

@GamesGamesGames why the sad reaction? I'm genuinley interested in how they're handled. Look how Google Earth manages it, they get it in 3D, but it looks like arse.

Totally missed this reply, thank you. That's a shame, but at least it's better than making it look broken.

The game recommended high-end for my gtx 1060 at 1080p. Nope!

 

Switched down to medium, turned off death of field but increased the terrain slider a bit. Works reasonably on the tutorials.

 

Fantasy shopping on pcpartpicker atm. Must resist until next gen consoles are out for a while.

It wasn't a sad reaction. I took that one to be empathy. I spent a few years in Blackpool and would like to see it from up high for more personal reasons than suited a simple like.

Hi there. I've been enjoying the forum and its denizens for a good decade now but I just thought I'd pop in and say that I hate every single person in this thread who's able to play this today, on a very deep and personal level. Good day and see you all in a year. :angry:

Just did my first solo flight in the tutorial.  Took off like a boss, did all the turns like I knew what I was doing, lined up perfect for the landing.  Landed, then tried to enter a taxi lane too fast and went off into the grass :D

How? :(

 

Are you using XBox App? And is your Microsoft account linked to the right XBox account? I had this problem before.

 

Otherwise there are three versions, make sure you're selecting the GamePass standard version and it should have an Install button...

 

It then installs about 1GB and you can then "Play" and it installs the other 90GB it needs.
