Need direction with my FS9 settings in Nvidia Control Panel....please.

Recommended Posts

Hi There!

 

Trying to get Nvidia Control Panel settings set to a "optimum setting" for best visual display purposes for FS9.  I am not a guru on video settings at all, so I need guidance.  I have listed my NCP setting options here to help you see what I "see". 

The Bold text will show what is the current setting.   

 

I just need suggested NCP settings to help FS9 "look the best". Because other than AA, I don't know what these NCP settings specifically affect FS9 -  visually.

 

FYI: Here is the key specs for the machine, it should handle anything that FS9 can throw out.

 

  • i7-4790K 4.0Ghz
  • Asus Sabertooth Z97 Mark I
  • 16GB Crucial Ballistix Sport RAM 1600Mhz
  • Nvidia GTX 970 4GB (with latest driver)

OK, I downloaded it and will install it later today or tomorrow!

 

Couple of quick questions for ya:

 

I know that the higher MIP Map setting in FS9 (like beyond 4) will make distant scenery look more defined, but causes a distortion type of shimmering in the middle 2/3 section of the display.  What would it take to allow a higher MIP setting without the shimmering?

 

Often, when looking outside the cockpit, the whole scenery slightly moves up and down a little in quick internals (especially right after the first sim loads), like a mini vertical earthquake.  Sometimes it will smooth out in about 60 seconds or so.  What causes that?
