Interesting idea.  I guess it dynamically reduces graphics settings when scenery pushes fps below your minimum set value?  But changing graphics settings should cause a stumble or hesitation, I would expect.  I don't need it on my system, but it's an interesting attempt to solve framerate problems.

I did not observe any stuttering, and could see it at work by removing details then objects (static planes, houses, ...)  while the framerate dropped (this is easy to force by changing the default clouds to overcast).

But is it any good during flight ? My experiments were to short to give a good answer.

Yes, I read the manual.  I guess the main advantage would be to change settings for testing.  You can always open the Rendering window and change things during flight as well.  I guess I don't see the main idea.

Finally I think it is worth it, I put everything on max and let the plugin remove distant (and in extreme cases not so distant) objects to keep the sim responsive.

As you can decide to toggle it with landing lights, I did not see anymore slow downs during approach (when responsiveness is most important.)

Good job!

Interesting!

 

Will give it a fair try tonight :-)

It is definitely a keeper for me as it is so wonderful to have something auto managing things to keep the frame rate where I like (30fps min)

 

I have always wished that you could prioritize which types of scenery you care more about when it comes to the frame rate.

 

I would love to be able to keep objects and detail at extreme for airports and the surrounding 5 miles and sacrifice other areas, etc

I like this plugin.

 

But I notice that it has done something to the HDR / ALS

@humpty:

 

Can you elaborate? 

I haven't noticed anything negative regarding HDR with the plugin - Maybe I'm missing something?

I feel that ALS or the fog layer is OFF.

BTW there is an other script at the .org and i am using that.

 

Search in google "datarefs x plane AMD GPU "

 

Basically Multilayer fog chews up fps. But if this is off then you shall see flat foggy thing.

 

With Autolod the multilayer is ON but I have noticed the HDR looks silly. (CAN ANYONE CHECK ? )

 

Now I know that its only my GPU which is limiting the performance.

 

All my settings are maxed out. using V3 + FlywithLua and even at CYYZ (ISDG ) which very heavy on the CPU i am getting above 20's.

Neat program, just perfect!!!

 

Got it set at Min 28, Max 38 and works great in my world, love the fact that you can change HDR on the fly.

@Humpty:

 

Can you share a photo comparison of the gauge artifacts?

 

I'm either not seeing the issue or don't actually understand what you're seeing.

 

It's been a great experience for me with Auto LOD

Wow...this lua script is fabulous!

 

Thank very much, to the Dev!!!

 

Whatever you fly over...or throw at it...it gives you 30 fps as much as your system can render it

Just wondering if anyone here using this plugin, is also using Real Terra Haze 3.12?

When I have both scripts enabled FlyWithLUA loads in a stopped state. It would seem there is some sort of conflict?

Dave,

 

I do have them both running without any issues, the only thing I'm not sure is the RTH version, It may be 3.12, not sure though.

Thank you Carlos, that told me something was noit quite right at my end and I found it!

My version of FlyWithLUA was not quite up to date.

It goes to show how critical it is to keep these things current. :)

Glad you found the problem.

For me these two great scripts are a must.

This plugin is just brilliant!

 

I use it with 2 Computers and 4 Screens. Each screen has its own GPU. With this plugin everything is in sync and smoth @30FPS!

 

Best regards

Patrick

I have the min set at 20, Max at 40.

 

I lock my frames at 30 using NI. I am currently flying with a solid 30fps and every time I enable this plugin it drives my LOD to 0.0

 

Is this correct ?

Not sure what is going on. It seems that the lower the load the more stress is out on the system. At a load of 0.0 my fps are dragged down to 20. I just deleted the script. I am not sure if the problem is because I lock my fps using Nvidia inspector to half my monitors refresh rate
