I'll try to be there and do an extra relocation to Northolt from Aviano AB, Italy earlier that day.
I'll decide later if F-16 from FGAddon or F-5E.

I am not sure if I'll be able to make it to the main event, but normally I can. If not, I'll gladly fly with you before the event.

If you're planning on joining the fly in, please make sure you're at RAF Northolt (EGWU) and ready to taxi at 1800Z (1900 local time, BST) as we need to take off pretty soon after that to get to Lakenheath in decent time so as not to disrupt or delay the FlightNight ferry trip to Volkel.

The Route Manager file is available for download here

There is an ATC operating at Heathrow at the moment - I've spoken to them and told them that, if they are operating at the time, we'll be leaving EGWU and heading at low level along the river. Northolt is only five miles from Heathrow so please play nice and share the airspace responsibly :)

With OPRF I'm planning a relocation flight to EGWU from LSMM in Switzerland with F-5s and others which will arrive about 15 to 30 mins before we start there. If someone's brave to come in as well, 1630z should be the designed start time. Hopefully we'll try to get as much people as possible on TS for comms for both that and the FlightNight. Gotta be massive ha!

No need to get a bunch of them, either Git or launcher version which are the same, plus FGUK's.
For Tiger livs, make sure you select Block 20 in the launcher:

Tried joining Mav's fly-in with various aircraft - all of which crashed fgfs.exe - bloody continually and is getting right up my nose.

Can somebody please check out the models for that group ? I accept it could be my end but it left me with their F-16 to fly and I cant accept that.

Many thanks.

ps - im not negging Mav

I'm not sure I've got the right model, but I haven't had any crashes with them in the vicinity (Mav has had quite a few though, he thinks something is wrong)

Ah ha - a MP cascade = bad packet doing the rounds. Good luck clearing that out.

I shall re-join 20:00 hrs and test the water : otherwise I give up with flight night all together.
These aircraft that I've selected are the FGUK best ones, most up to date, had most love in them.

Damn it - don't wanna leave FGUK but cant hack restarting fgfs.exe every 5 minutes coz of MP aircraft being around.

Where did you find the cascade?

I didn't find a cascade - I presumed that is the cause. I have nofukinindea what causes it.

I paid over 60 quid for ARMA3 and that is still as buggy as the sandbox version. So I curse and reload.
BUT WHY SHOULD I ?

I give up - we never used to have this problem. I looked forward to flightnight and don't normally have a problem apart from *that random model* but heyho.

No more.

Porcy what version are you running?

I was flying 2020.2.0 with Compositor and got 5 fps on the tarmac close to other choppers.
While in the air it was between 30 to 50 fps. Didn't get such a huge drop with the jets though.

OK, yes that has the disconnection crash issue - I would either use 2018.3.5 or 2020.1rc (without compositor at this point) as neither of those have the bug (verified)

2019.1.x is particularly bad.

The official view is that if reliability and stability is important then the LTS (long term stable) is the version for you; i.e. 2018.3.x (currently 2018.3.5) is the only version that you should be using.

There have been a lot of changes since 2018.3 and not all of the rough edges are fixed. There will be a 2020 LTS in the next 6 months - but really treat all 2020.x versions as beta and likely to crash. Even the newly released 2020.1 should be treated with suspicion for at least the next few months. We are working hard to fix the reliability issues - but it really helps if there is a reproducible test case logged in a ticket.

I agree with Richard - for stability use 2018.3.x, but keep in mind it lacks some of the latest features (like yasim stiction)

I would recommend though that Aircraft devs also keep an eye on the beta/cutting edge releases to check out new features & give feedback

So icecode says compositor is rendering shadows in every single knob inside
neighbouring helicopters too if they don't have aggressive LOD settings. A
known issue apparently. And on icecode's todo list to not render internal
shadows on external views.
