Ok i know this is out dated i use it before and it work well for me.

 

It like a zip file.

 

Here what mike and kelly wrote.....

 

Please try the attached autogen tree textures. They improved framerates for me but your mileage may vary - post your results here.

 

The textures have been reduced from the originals and the DXT1 format and alpha channels have been preserved. The dimensions have been reduced by 50%. This results in a reduction in total size of the textures from 10.7MB to 3.9MB. All seasons are included.

 

And all that worked well on my system thanks

 

So if you know where this file is please help for i can load it...

According to the 'experts', "there is NO fix for tree/auto-gen pop-ups. In FS9 we have something called alpha fade which prevents this, but in FSX it was excluded. When ACES realized it was excluded, they tried to get alpha fade back into FSX, but it never happened. No textures, tweaks, or settings are going to make a difference, except to turn auto-gen Off." See the following site - http://www.flightsim.com/vbfs/archive/index.php/t-218645.html.

 

I also did a Google search for 'Mike Kelly autogen' and came up with a lot of hits, including the info above. Hope this helps.

 

Best regards,

Jim

You can also modify these 2 lines (BOLD) in the fsx.cfg to a lower number...

 

[TERRAIN]

LOD_RADIUS=4.500000

MESH_COMPLEXITY=100

MESH_RESOLUTION=22

TEXTURE_RESOLUTION=27

AUTOGEN_DENSITY=3

DETAIL_TEXTURE=1

WATER_EFFECTS=4

TERRAIN_MAX_AUTOGEN_TREES_PER_CELL=2000

TERRAIN_MAX_AUTOGEN_BUILDINGS_PER_CELL=1700

According to the link I provided in post #4, this setting (tweak) no longer works in FSX.

What's the difference between doing the above or just moving the slider to the left?

Interesting, I've been using that 'tweak' since day 1 and it sure seems to make a difference here

To be honest, I have been using that tweak and had trees set at 1000 and buildings at 800 per cell. It would be difficult to tell whether the tweak works or not. I look down and I still see a lot of trees! LOL!

Same here, my test was FPS and it definatly was better with the lower numbers. Now I am really curious so as soon as I get time I'm going to do some experimenting again.

Holger gave a dissertation on how trees are created and used in FSX - I think it was in an ORBX post.. These figures are taken from that.

Yes, I removed my entries too and fsx 'feels' better while flying. I can understand Paul's consternation over this issue as Holger is an 'expert' too. I believe what the experts said in the link I provided. In any case, NickN (gee, another expert) says get rid of it as modern systems do not need this tweak even if it does work.

 

Best regards,

Jim

I've never heard of a tweak for clouds. Don't think it's really needed. You can buy one of the payware cloud addon programs like REX, FEX, and AS2012 and I think those programs are pretty frame rate friendly.

I got curious reading these posts, so I opened my FSX.cfg. The 2 lines of info...TERRAIN_MAX_AUTOGEN_TREES_PER_CELL=2000

TERRAIN_MAX_AUTOGEN_BUILDINGS_PER_CELL=1700 were not even in my cfg (I have the FSX Deluxe edition), so I added them. Then I played with them because I fly a lot in the Twin Cities area and on final approach to KSTP runway 14, there is a very annoying 10 story tall office building very close to the end of the runway and it is very easy to crash into it while landing. Also, the trees on final approach to KSGS runway 16 are too close to the end of the runway, requiring a steep approach even using Jim Keir's wonderful tree removal utility. First, I set the buildings setting to 1 building per cell just to see if I could manipulate these settings, and sure enough, there was only one building per cell seen while flying. Lowering the trees setting also drastically reduced the amount of trees seen while flying. For me, changing the settings to TERRAIN_MAX_AUTOGEN_TREES_PER_CELL=500 and TERRAIN_MAX_AUTOGEN_BUILDINGS_PER_CELL=54 solved both problems for me at both airports. I could have used the slider in the settings section, but by adjusting the cfg instead, I was able to adjust more precisely in order to get the most trees and buildings displaying as possible while still being able to eliminate the building and trees at KSTP and KSGS. By copying my FSX.cfg to my desktop as a shortcut, it is now easy to access it, making it easy to change the building and trees settings whenever I desire more (or less) buildings and trees when I fly in different locations.

What specifically are you trying to tweak with the clouds? You have quite a few options built into FSX already
