Add-Ons/Add On Manager/Options-----Always use 4096 textures.

So where it says force textures I just have to put it off or I put force 4096 textures?

Anytime you go into the FSX Settings, the Texture_Max_Load setting will be returned to the default 1024 unless you use a program, like the Addon Manager to force it.  Personally I keep an fsx.cfg icon on my desktop and periodically review the Texture_Max_Load setting under the Graphics section and also the LOD_Radius setting under the Terrain section.  Both of these settings will be returned to the default if you open up the FSX Settings page within FSX (like to change the global resolution to Medium).  Now I do not know if Medium will give you 4096 resolution and it may only give you 2048 resolution (which is very good too).  The 4096 resolution is the max setting for this parameter.

 

The problem with forcing this parameter in the Addon Manager is that there are some bad tweaks that will also be installed in your fsx.cfg (well, at least I do not recommend the tweaks).  If you want to see some good settings for your FSX that work for most, check out the AVSIM FSX Configuration Guide.

 

Best regards,
