God Needs a Better Vid Card

Recommended Posts

I went for a trial flight the other day and noticed that I get more blurries in real life than actually FS2002.I mean surely he would be able to purchase a better card than a TI-4200?Compare these two pictureshttp://www.nzdragons.com/laurence/airport.jpgandhttp://www.nzdragons.com/laurence/chch.jpgI think microsoft is making it to unrealistic, I can clearly see the runway in FS2002 yet try and find the grass runway in Gods one is a lot harder.And those blurries, God just doesn't have them right does he, I mean I should be able to see clearer a lot further than what I get in the airport.jpg - I'm asking God for my money back.This post is not aimed at any one person, and is not meant to offend anyone's beliefs either

"Dont mess with God.....God made everything perfect. God is Perfect."The only thing I can't figure out is that everything he made dies!

(It was sooo good, I had to re-read to everyone of my coworkers so they would better understand what was happening to them as I read it aloud. *grin*)

Not to worry. In my case it was 25 years ago and never realy succeeded to make the link of it with enthalpy after many weeks of trying while studying thermo-dynamics. All I remember is it was some kind of measure of chaos. :-)

A- You've just flown over LA before taking the picture.LA is a touch too far from Christchurch - especially in a C152 :)In a 747 it's still over 12 hours away :)B- The red filer was left on the cam's lens.Flying into sunlight, it was getting close to duskC- You haven't still mastered Photoshop.Left the pictures at the same res as I took them, simply so that people can't say I doctored the images.I did size reduce the fs one, as I didn't want too large a picture (fly in 1024x768):-)

While it is true that MSFS looks better than reality sometimes, this topic as drifted into the metaphysical...which can be a touchy subject for some people.I'm moving this to the Hangar forum, where you can continue the discussion until it inevitably turns south...http://saltydogfly2.avsim.net/images/avsim_sig.jpg

Yup, I'm not even sure how it started south, it was designed to show people how blurries actually happen in real life.

Eh ? Where did you get such a strange idea ?Chris Low,ENGLAND.

The slider in MSFS for visibility distance even at minimum is too far for most low altitude flying during the summer months where I live and fly. On a clear day or night it's a different story though.PDX tower and Mt. St. Helens.

You're quite right. I've always held that FS is often far too crisp and clean in its rendering.Though the cause of blurriness is in real life of course different from what happens (at the moment) in FS, and in FS it could look better, it's not all that unrealistic when you get it in moderate amounts.It's only when FS attempts to stretch a small MIP across a large area that things get bad and that usually indicates a CPU problem (as in, using too much CPU time for other things like framerates).

I have to agree. I spend a few days in DC and flew out of ATL to DCA and then obviously back again... The framerates were excellent and the sound files were superb! That's an area that FS200X needs a definite improvement on. Jets whine and hum and make all kinds of interesting sounds that are not a part of any FS sound files I have heard. The textures were quite blurry, however. I believe GOD has FSAA enabled but he needs to download drivers to enhance AF. It seems like after about 10 miles, the textures turn to mush. The real world needs to take a lesson to two from FS2002 (and I am sure from 2004) about this issue.Robb
