All of you can figure this out....solid 30 (locked) FPS!

Recommended Posts

Here's the facts,...

 

Yesterday, I downloaded two OSM continent files from SimHeaven:

 

1: North America with autogen

2: Europe with autogen

 

I fired up XPX 64 bit and waited for it to place me at an airport. I shut down the program.

 

I then as per the instruction page within the North America zip file, did a total cut and paste of my .ini file, which I have included for your perusal.

 

I was at VERY HIGH as my standard (pre file install and re-sort) for my rez selection. With this, I would get anywhere from 18-30 (lock) depending on how involved the scenery was, etc.

 

I fired up XPX 64 bit with the 2 OSM and autogen in the mix...and found that I stayed at 29-30 FPS pretty much anywhere I chose to fly, rural, urban, mountains, etc.

 

Hmmmm, I thought. Let me see if I can get away with EXTREME for the rez setting.  So, I changed up, dropped out of XPX, and then fired it up again. To my utter amazement, I was STAYING at 29-30 as well, again across a lot of different scenic loads.

 

So, I leave what might have happened to any of you.  I wanted to share the 'good news' with ya....and so, you now have what it might take, to also enjoy this FPS 'happening'.  So below is my ini file exactly as was sorted yesterday, and what custom stuff, I have 'stuffed' into XPX.  I suggest that you try and sort whatever you have, after my fashion and see if when adding (you have to do this as well!) the two SimHeaven continent files with autogen, do you also find that you are running super efficient in scenery rastorizing, and so it spells out at top-of-the-line (as per your system) XPX.21 FPS output.  Below is my .ini file:

Ok, been flying for about three hours.  In light cloud (real weather download) I stay at 29-30 FPS.

 

In heavy cloud and T storm environments, I can go down to no lower than 23 FPS.  

 

This is fabulous performance, as i see it.  Everything is smooth in animation.  I think that on average, after my OSM adding, and cut and past of the .ini file yesterday, I have picked up a strong plus 7 FPS in most scenic situations and loads. More than not, XPX now wants to just stay at my 30 FPS lock-down.

 

I run now as my standard rez setting; EXTREME.

 

CPU: i7 975 Extreme

GPU: EVGA Signature Plus GTX 680 

BIOS: Alienware A11

I'm real happy your enjoying the sim, perhaps one explanation could be that the new files and autogen are simply not high enough resolution so as not to affect your frame rates when you went from high res to extreme res in your settings?  Maybe its just more efficient or some combination of the above but why question it?  If your happy and it looks good...rock on!

With OSM2XP you have the real footprint for all the buildings in OpenStreetMap, but the no details around the buildings (no garden furniture...), low resolution textures for the walls (if you don't change them) and the simulator does not need to guess/calculate where the houses are. That's using less resources than default plausible buildings where the simulator needs to "build" each village from the ground up depending on the streets and where you can even see a long chair:

...ah, then that could be it.  It still looks great, and the performance is stellar.

Osm2xp is using facades for buildings, which are basically textured cubes.

So fps performance is better than for a complex 3D object  , but it's not very pretty, and that's the biggest problem of osm2xp in my opinion.

 

I'm currently working on an evolution that will let osm2xp use 3D objects for buildings.

It's still in progress/testing, but i think it will be a huge leap in graphic quality for those osm generated sceneries.

(windsocks are used for tests to validate buildings compliance to footprint)

Hi Benny,

Are you aware that a new kind of facades exists in XP10? Those are not only simple faces with a roof where possible, it's 3d objects that can be developed along the footprint (like prisms), and other objects can be attached to it.

The doc for these v2 facades is brand new:

http://developer.x-plane.com/?article=x-plane-10-facade-fac-file-format-specification

 

In fact, the new facade type can probably be used with OSM2XP as it is now. Just have to tinker with definition files.

 

I can't wait for the new version, it seems you added the ability to imports multi polygon footprints. And of course the new amazing night lighting ! Great job !

Well, I just took off from Frankfurt (SimHeaven OSM Europe+AUTOGEN, using the EXTREME rez setting........,

 

dropped by half to 15 FPS, from the usual of 30 when flying in N.A.

 

Yepper, there are many more features in SimHeaven's Europe, over North America.

 

I'm about to try it at Very High, and see if what I might climb back up to.

 

...........

 

Post Edit:  Just took off from same runway at Frankfurt, and with Very High, came back up to : 25 FPS. I also think that Europe looks better at Very High, than Extreme. Extreme made it too 'busy'....p.o.

 

Post Edit 2:  Well, Europe certainly give you a different flying 'flavor' than my usual N.A. haunts.  I think that I will catch a ride down the Rhine, and see what's up. :)  It looks really good, and have settled into about 27 FPS as a general FPS high for this region.
