Recommended Posts

Guest bcuff

Hi everyone, I have a pretty good system, P4 3ghz, 1gb ram, ati 9800pro and I am getting good frame rates with no clouds 30 to 40 fps but if I use real weather or a cloud theme my rates drop to between 15 and 22 jumping up and down all the time, very anoying to watch.Any advice? I mostly fly VFR low level.Thanks in advanceBarry.

Barry,Other than the FSW clouds, I found the clouds that came with the Blue Sphere Environment Upgrade Project also are very good. Available here at AVSIM.Shez
