Big FPS drop withFSX Night Textures

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,For the most part FSX is running pretty well for me on a new system. I am averaging upper 20's to 30 with the FPS limiter set at 30. I have applied most of NickN's settings as well as using Bojote's tweaker. I have an 17-920 overclocked to 4.0, and a GTX 275 - 1792 mb card also overclocked.While sitting on the runway at San Jose Intl., in the PMDG NGX, I am showing around 20 FPS during daytime. As soon as I switch to night, the FPS drops to 10 instantly. Ultimate Traffic is set to about 15%, and road traffic is about 10%. I also have Flight One's UTX and GEX. Any ideas how to get my FPS up? Thanks, Tom

Are you using the street lights in Ultimate Terrain? Those hit fps sometimes in big cities.

UTX shows you how bad a performance hit is for each option, the night lighting in UTX is a huge hit.

I use the street lights from utx but not the ?traffc lights (the second option under night lighting). Gives me acceptable frames and still looks pretty.
