How do you guys deal with Autogen popping ?

Recommended Posts

As the title states, how do you guys live with autogen popping in fsx ? Of lately i have started to get annoyed with the constant popping of autogen.I have tried different lod, different multi for texture bandwith but it still pops up every second.I have also experimented with different settings but yet no success.

 

So i wanted to know about you guys.How do you live with it.Is there any tweak that iam missing or is it just a trade off that everyone lives with.P3D v2.2 is an option i know, however not until PMDG get their products ready.

 

I use FTX global and vector along with airport sceneries from FSDT, aerosoft and few others.

 

Would love to hear from you guys.

That's it. There is nothing you can do about it. Unless you use, as you said, P3D 2.2. ^_^ You will still see popup in P3D but in the far, far way distance (also depending on your altitude. And the weather). It's so much better than it is in FSX.

I've reached the point where I hardly notice it; I almost miss it when I'm driving in the real world and the buildings don't suddenly pop into view!

Being a Tube liner pilot I really don't notice it too much, difficult to see from the cockpit. If I go outside to look around I will spin around the aircraft 5 - 6 times in locked spot view to load all the textures first.

By happily realizing if it were further out my frame rates would be even worse than they pathetically are.

If you turn autogen completely off, you will not notice any popping.

Scan the gauges more often. :)

 

 

That's what I do.

 

I don't find it that annoying. No more annoying than in other programs, where the ground looks like a blurry blob, and a few seconds later, it becomes a full resolution texture.

that's part of dealing with fsx, no tweeks in the world will help this, unless you run no autogen

I used to be annoyed by autogen popping but somehow it no long matters.  I think what happened is that my focus shifted away from soaking in the eyecandy and more towards piloting my aircraft.  Possibly my year old 4770k/780 computer had something to do with it as well.

Fly IFR only and don't look out the windows.

Not what I experienced. no popping autogen in P3D V2.2 but the level of autogen distance detail is less than in FSX so you end up with a band of autogen around you then just the base texture. Another reason I've removed P3D and come back to FSX!

I've heard that before, yes, but imho the autogen stops far, far away. Guess it's a matter of opinion which also depends on your zoom settings and regular flying altitude.

Funny... I still have the "band of autogen" around me in FSX, only it's a smaller band AND it pops.

 

At least in P3D it's a wider band and not as poppy... ;-)

From the look of your avatar perhaps too much poppy?
