Autogen and PR scenery

Recommended Posts

Quick question: If I have autogen ON, and am flying over PR scenery where I don't see the autogen, IS the autogen still being generated in the the simulator using up resources??

 

Thanks,

Michael

No, Autogen is rendered for the area you are flying over.  There may be some Autogen rendered around or on the airports though.  You can turn off Autogen at any time by going into your display settings in the FSX menu and turning it off.  If you ever decide to go to default areas, you can go and turn it on while running FSX.

What firehawk said, with the addition of a couple of things.

 

1. You will see autogen (if turned ON) at the borders of coverage areas, where MSE borders default scenery. The normal autogen objects will show on the default scenery side, and chew up some resources.

 

2. Remember that each time you go into the FSX display settings, it resets the LOD_RADIUS setting in the FSX.cfg. This is important to remember if you make or have made changes to the LOD_RADIUS setting as recommended in the MSE User Guide. So you have to keep a regular check on that setting in the FSX.cfg file before you start up FSX (if you have been into the FSX scenery settings windows recently).

 

3. Any objects you see in and around airports will likely be hand-placed objects not part of the same autogen system that draws trees and houses everywhere else in the sim. MSE PR scenery really only removes the primary autogen system objects. Typically you will still see most all airport buildings, AI traffic is retained, and outside airports you will see commonly placed objects like power stations, radio antennae and special custom objects unique to the area... these are retained when using PR scenery.

Hope that helps!
