HiI always wondered and never knew or decided rather if i should have dxt textures or not, honestly as in all other textures i have never seen a difference in performance for this issue alone, there is so many other issues and reasons performance can change even on the same testing field.So my question is should i or not, any specific question besides performance should I ask myself to make this decision, should specific systems have DXT textures a MUST? SEE below for specs.I currently run 256x256 mips enabled and although i also nevcer saw a difference between with mips or not either but with my system i feel 256x256 is a must because default clouds or 512x512 is a system hog on systems like mine, that i knew since day 1 of FS9.Thanks, any advice or tip on how to test this is greatly appreciated?

To test:Enable DXTSubmit a new set of clouds to FS04.Start FS and fly around. Remember that Render to Texture may need to be turned On.See if you like them.If not disable DXT and submit a new set of clouds to FS04.Hope this helps,JimActiveSky Sales and Supporthttp://www.hifisim.com/images/asv_dev_team.jpg http://www.hifisim.com/images/asv_proud_supporter.jpg
