Want more FPS with the 777?

Recommended Posts

First thing first.

This is not my find.

If you like using external views this is not for you.

 

If you sit in the VC and never leave it like me 99% of the time....read on.

 

What this does is losers the external model. You do it like this,

 

Simply browse to the aircraft's main folder within C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Games\Microsoft Flight Simulator X\SimObjects\Airplanes, and go into the Model directory.

 

In the Model directory, open up Model.cfg and place '//' (two forward slashes) in front of the line that begins with 'normal='

 

It works for every aircraft but am only flying the PMDG 777 ATM so

 

e.g my new 777F looks like this

 

[models]
//normal=PMDG_777_200F.MDL
interior=PMDG_777_VC

 

TEST

Orbx CRM

Orbx KJAC Gate 8

I will let these speak for themselfs.

With Model

Without

 the 50 fps lock was just for these SS.

 

So for me it's a no brainer. I will take the extra head room all day long.

 

Enjoy.

Good find but shame it loses the model I mean I do fly 99.9% of time in VC mode but I do like to take screenshots of outside model and sometimes look at it flying etc

It's all down to if you want/need the extra FPS,  like everything in FSX it has a price.

Great find. I never leave the VC. Someone else found that un ticking High Resolution 3d Virtual Cockpit in settings gave me a boost but only works for PMDG and screws up other e.g Aerosoft Airbus A320.

 

I only wish MS would pull their head out of their arse and refine/update FSX to todays technology/code but that is wishful thinking...I could strangle the person who canceled MS Flight Sim meh.

Can this cause problems?

 

I mean, I could see it being usefull but if things like icing effects (if they are simulated), or the effects that turbulence has dont work......

I think the only problem would be during walkaround...  :rolleyes:

 

Great find BTW! I don't think i will need this with 777, but is good to know

Good point, I never thought of that. Like he said everything in FSX has a price!

No it has no effects on turbulence and the T7 has not Iceing effects and if it did you cannot see them from the VC thus the only thing you lose is the model from out side.

 

What do you see from the out side? Really!!.......yes your right, you see nothing. It said at the top, you lose the external model.

you lose virtual cabin with external model in this case.

 

EDIT: Virtual cabin is modeled only from external view from what i know

The virtual cabin comes with the external model. So no it's not some part on it own.

A better way to achieve the same thing, without losing the external model, is tick off the Hi-Def 3D Cockpit option  in the FSX Aircraft settings. Loss of Graphic quality is minimal if at all and you can double your frames.


Thanks
