Hello,I've seen a couple of posts that talk about refreshing scenery during a flight. I'm curious to know what is the advantage of doing that?ThanksScott.

Some users experience blurrie scenery textures as they fly - many possible reasons for that - and refreshing the scenery will most often put the textures back in focus.There may be other reasons for doing it but this is perhaps the most often cited one.

Scott- on my system, FPS can sometimes slowly decline without it being obvious. A common situation is flying into an area of higher density scenery such as an airport approach. It's a very subtle phenomenon and I suspect many simmers don't notice.I have the Refresh Scenery command mapped to the Pause/Break key. When you strike it, FS9 pauses for 3 or 4 seconds, then resumes full blast! It has become second nature to do this in prep for an approach- and in fact, at any time in the vicinity of an airport whether taxiing or airborne.Alex Reid
