Getting the best FPS

Recommended Posts

Hi

 

I have a core I5 4670K, 8GB RAM, 2tb HDD, Water cooling, GTX 760 OC,

 

Addons

 

Pmdg 777,737 ngx, Airbus x extended, Dash 8 from Majestic etc

 

UK2000 sceneries and a number of Flytampa, FSDT and Aerosoft sceneries

 

I'm wondering what is the best way to achieve the best FPS with the specs and add-ons that I have.

 

I also run DX10, Nvidea inspector and used Bojotes fsx tweaker.

what is the best way to achieve the best FPS with the specs and add-ons that I have.

 

Adjust your sliders until things are smooth. Then turn off the FPS counter, fly and enjoy FSX and your add-ons.

Yep, don't shove all the sliders to the far right and adjust for smoothness, don't worry about FPS.

I tend to lower my autogen settings. Having mine at sparse over normal or higher has the sim running at 40-50 FPS with the PMDG 777 at the most demanding airports (eg. KJFK, EDDF, or any ORBX region). Scenery complexity is kept at normal. No HDR lighting (DX10, bloom for DX9) or anything like that. Traffic is off.

 

You could start by editing that TERRAIN_MAX_AUTOGEN_TREES_PER_CELL to something more reasonable like 500, because at 5000, you're asking FSX to render 5000x50 trees (250,000). Multiply that by 30 FPS framerate (needs to draw all those 250K trees for 30 FPS) and you get roughly 7.5 million. This is why your seeing performance issues.

Thanks Magnetite. You get 30 FPS at FSDT KJFK ? :o

 

I don't use that airport only the default JFK file. Just turn down your autogen, and report back what you get.
