Beautiful mountain flying (Swiss Alps), XPX style!

Recommended Posts

Hi there!

Today, something a little different.

I took the Carendo Stationair around Sion. The scenery you see here is OSM Europe, HD mesh v2 (superb performance, still very pretty), treelines and farms v2, UrbanMAXX 3D, tweaked art controls and MaxxFX.

I hope you like them, and as always, comments are very welcome:

Does tweaking art controls rely on Fly with Lua or can it be done some other way? I want to get rid of beaches permanently.

you beat me to it, so that was you on final yesterday !

 

If your system can handle it, you should really try UHD mesh, the peaks and ridges stand out even more.

Thanks guys!

I use the Dataref editor to change the art controls, but that's not a permanent change. If you reboot the sim, the changes are gone.

I tried the UHD mesh (I have 16 GB of RAM and a GTX670 with 2 GB), and while it looked really impressive, the frame rate dropped significantally to around 14 in the Swiss Alps. Sure, I could have lowered so settings, but I really like the look and the performance of the HD mesh v2!

Oh, right! Thank you! ;-)

I don't use RTH, I always tweak the art controls manually. Plus, I really recommend MaxxFX to enhance the realistic look even further!
