Okay, after a virgin full install of a complete download, I think it's a move in the right direction. I did not have the dark panel issue in 5.1, but I see what people were talking about now in 5.1 HF1. Lighting and color in general are going to have to be adjusted because, wow, things are intense and trippy! EGGW Luton has that big orange hanger and boy, I never knew what orange really was until now!

LM has apparently done something with mesh/airport elevation because there's a noticeable drop-off at the end of runways, like a little bluff, although the scenery makes the elevation change blend in better along the sides of airports. I'm not the only one who has this, although it may depend on how you update, because some others have the same but I don't see others complaining. Also may depend on various add-ons.

EA is much improved (not that it would be difficult) and I'm pretty happy with it so far. I tested with all sliders to the right and was still at a smooth 40-60 in the L1011 at an add-on airport without traffic. So performance seems good, if not better. It was a good move for me. Here's climbout at EGGW Luton.
