    Yeah, I'm running an i7-2700k with GTX980 in a system built 6 1/2 years ago and I can run FSX, P3DV3, P3DV4 and X Plane 11 quite comfortably and can use the Oculus Rift very comfortably with DCS World and Aerofly FS2. I did add the GTX980 at a later date than the original build (about 2 years ago) because my original AMD7970 bit the dust. I have seen users with the i7-8700k and GTX1080 get triple digit frames with ease.

    I do not use Ankor's shaders so only time will tell.Run Win 7 64bit. Have not run into any problems yet so far.Tried to get it to work on CFS3 but no luck so far. Must be doing something wrong installing it because i have no problems with WOFF.

    that really depends on many other factors, hows the original airplane gmax/m3d mesh material settings, hows the current user CFS3 game config and also if you run the game on WinXP or later Win systems. in another word some airplane will look almost same or acceptable with/without "Ankors", some will be visually unusable without edits. however, I would always go the way to avoid of "hacking" the md3 files inside for material properities tweaks, just to solve it all with texture edits.

    I've never done a walk around with any A2A aircraft, although I have had a few mishaps because of that... But I still prefer the A2A version over the Carenado one.

    Obviously from Eastern Europe, but not from Asia. Built since 2002.

    Indeed, and not a single one of us P3D simmers are entertained at all while flying that simulator :biggrin-new: Concerning the remarks from people who think they cannot update their computers to run P3D or any 64 bits sims, I understand that a full PC is quite a budget. I had to change my 9 years-old computer recently and that was a bug expense. But keep that in mind: - At some point in the past, you had to buy a computer to run what you're running now. - Computers are not eternal. - At some point in the not-so-distant future, your old computer is going to die, and you'll have to buy a new one. Or rent it (Shadow PC and such, maybe?) - Most of today's computers can run P3D quite well. - Most of 3-4 years-old hardware can run P3D quite well too, although not at max quality (but...

    The early access version of Fly Inside Flight Sim is available now. Just $32, $25 if you've purchased any version of Fly Inside. It's of interest to FSX users for a number of reasons: It's 64-bit, but runs dramatically better on older systems than P3D or X-Plane because it's not based on legacy code. Supports modern graphics APIs and multi-threaded operations. 90 fps with details cranked and weather! It fully supports VR, but performs well on flat screens too The scenery engine looks great. The buildings, etc. are currently "developer art" and look like crap, but those are just placeholders and they'll be updated, and there's a scenery SDK. It's not add-on compatible with FSX per-se, but it's obviously not too hard to port stuff over given all the stock planes are payware FSX...

    You will be pleasantly surprised since the 'glass' 172 has a completely new FDE built from scratch :)

    I have the Carenado 172N and really like it, and you get a version that works with FSX and all versions and editions of P3D, and you don't have to pay for Accu-sim that like you I did not want. I am waiting for the next Carenado sale to get there C172SP Skyhawk G1000 version.

    All I am going to say is that P3D is one of the best pieces of EDUCATIONAL software I have ever purchased.

    +1 Same here. i7700k 4.2GHz non-oc, GTX1070. Frames locked at 60fps for completely smooth aerobatics and maneuvering. No cfg tweaking at all.

    You forgot to add that if you want a C172 that performs and handles (including slips and spins) like a C172, the Carenado version will be enough as well.

    "Two weeks ago, I finally got a custom built rig (i7-8700k, GTX 1070 OC, 16gb RAM) to run P3Dv4. This machine is just adequate for running P3D; but with absolutely no AI, boats or car traffic. Unless you are willing to put up with more shimmering and poor anti-aliasing (especially compare to FSX) than I am; 8XSSAA is a required setting. " I'm running a 6 year old PC with an AMD 8150, and have none of the problems discussed. and was running an old 770 GTX for the longest time -- AMD isn't as good as Intel for the FSX/P3D from my experience...so if my rig can work, it sounds like you need to tune that rig into the machine it can be!

    Well that's a better set up than I've got and I don't have any of those problems. I'm running an i5 from about 4 years ago, a 4gb nVidia graphics card, and 8gb of RAM. No anti-aliasing problems and I have plenty of AI, including Henrik's shipping and custom routes for about 20+ airlines.

    Go with the A2A 172. I leave Accu-sim on, but to be honest it takes no time to correct any issues if they arise. You can click a button to do a "Complete Overhaul" which will make sure the aircraft is in brand new tip top shape if any issues do arise. Otherwise, just jump in and fly if you want. The only issues I have ever had are flat batteries and cooked starter motors from trying to start it unsuccessfully. You can open the maintenance hangar and replace/repair these in 5 seconds. Cheers,
