World detail distance

Recommended Posts

Been tweaking xpx 64 and always kept world detail distance at max.....until now. WOW what a difference in performance. Its like changing this one setting enables me to max just about every other setting.

 

What are you all using, and what represents the closest comparison to what one sees in FSX?

I have mine set at "Very High"...

 

I read somewhere that the difference between very high and one step lower is hardly noticeable but can yield almost 10 fps more. Any experience with this?

Confirmed, on my system - i5 2500 @ 3,3 GHz, 16GB DDR3 RAM and Nvidia GTX 650 Ti 1GB GDDR5, I gain around 10 fps by decreasing from Very High to High only.

Nice! Thanks for testing. Its pool day with my kids so my pc is inaccessible. Lol

 

I'm looking for every bit of FPS I can get. At 2560x1600 things go downhill fast. Thinking of getting a 40" hdtv and using that for XPX.

Interesting, I haven't played much with that setting yet, just kept it on max. One setting I have noticed makes a huge difference on frames is in-game AA. At simple FXAA I can keep all the other settings at max or near max and get 30FPS in most places. Moving it up a notch usually causes a hit of about 5 FPS per notch.

I run mine at MEDIUM.  I think it gives the best representation of the RW.

I assume your using an Nvidia card then because FXAA on my ATI looks terrible and full of jaggies.

Yes but I'm cranking up the AA in the Nvidia Control Panel to compensate. It's ok but TBH the autogen is still a bit shimmery so I'll try playing with the work detail setting later to see if I can bump up the ingame AA a bit.

After a lot of experimentation I ended up with application-controlled settings for everything in Nvidia Inspector. I set all through X-Plane10's Rendering Options and get better performance this way.

I found this too with ATI's Catalyst tool. Maybe it's an OpenGL thing but application controlled seems better for FPS (I read that somewhere else before as well).

World Distance:

 

Only Medium and I'm used to it. This has been a FPS killer since ages, nothing new with version 10.
