Indeed is out, perhaps I'll wait one beta cycle to beta 2, many graphics problems may appear as the blog said.

So far so good here. The extended DSFs work and it seems less stuttery when loading scenery.

I have a 2014 Macbook Pro 15" (2,5 GHz Intel Core i7, 16GB of RAM, and 2GB NVidia) card. This build also works better on Yosemite for any Mac users. I've been running the alpha of 10.40 for some time, but this build includes the extended visibility we've all been waiting for :-)

Looking at the release notes, there are a bunch of new airports and lots of updates to those previously downloaded.  Lots of stuff here!

I have it up and running...very nice...but with NO changes whatsoever to my XP setup...on my system, I have dropped roughly 8 FPS from XP30.35 as a base line. I have been running around...taxi...rotate...cruise...different airports...and no CTD's at this time.  I guess, having greater horizon, and the fact that I am running all HD mesh...might be playing its part.

 

Post Edit:  It must be so very different, that SkyMax Pro from X-Aviation, requested reactivation...so get your credentials ready, lol!

 

All in all, it looks great...

 

Post Edit 2:  Well...right off...if going from XP.35 (on my system) to XP.40b1...and with having touched no settings between the download/update, I have lost 50 percent FPS performance. At my FBO at KFNT, Where I would have at rotation, 28-30 FPS...I am now only maintaining 13-15 FPS!   XP.40 requires a buff system, if you want to run it pretty much full out. I might have to scale back my performance slides slowly, to see at what measure, I can get back to around thd 28-30 FPS I consistently had before.  So, in recap...I'm only getting mostly 15 FPS at 1,800 feet, heading west out of KFNT.  

 

I hope it improves with playing around...but so far...a drop in FPS performance for myself.  It looks great, though! :)

OK , some notes after a short check (basicly wanted to check the new visibility).

 

- Performance even with new visibility is the same to me , not worse nor better.

 

- I checked with *HD MESH V3* , I gotta say I was kinda worried about RAM usage.

Im actaully surprised! 

I have 6GB RAM , my total usage was ~5.7GB with extended DSFs..

So I can imagine people with 8GB will be just OK even with WORLD2XP and detailed airplanes.

 

- I have an edited scattering effects , and LR fixed the white artifact in the horizon , all I can say , WOW WOW WOW!

You say that your FPS is the same?  Wow...mine was cut in half...but then do you have the sim fully tapped out for all the sliders, as I like to run it. In that mode, with .35..I could maintain 28-30...but now...with the same start at the same FBO...that's now cut in half with .40b1.  Interesting....

Wish they could do something to make the water reflections more correct (looking at those altitude shots above)

 

The water sticks out like a sore thumb and in the one with the orange sky, I'm not sure where the coloration of the water is coming from.

 

Just looks off to me and sticks out way too much (relative to what I see when up flying anyways)

Please report that to the developers... (They said that differnet hardware might get different results in this beta , some might not run at all)

I didn't really notice any change , I got about 13* in the 2 situations.

 

 

* 13 sucks but it is OK as Im using only GTX 460 1GB , and HDR on with 2XSSAA , Maximum shadows , and max objects , trees and roads.

So I have some very high settings here comparing to my old and weak GPU.

Anyone noticing decreased loading times? Detailed scenery in Germany (W2XP and Photo) seems to load faster for me

Yes...I'll report it.  I had to scale back rendering in the following....Objects from TONS to 'a lot'  Roads from TONS, to 'default'.  Yes...my FPS have tanked.  I am getting around Montreal...only about 12, to a max of 15 FPS!!!   I tried to drop out of HDR mode...but I crashed to desktop. I am going to now fire up again, and see if I can recover some FPS's...by not running in HDR mode. That sucks....big time...but let's see what happens.  I noticed no loss or gain, when checking Extended DSF, so that was not the problem.  It is off by default, and from the get-go..I saw my FPS...tank by 50 percent!   So, extended DSF seemed NOT to be the culprit.  It seems .40b1 in general....

Well...I can't run XP.40b1.

 

Even with HDR off..the best I can do, is having climbed (if you can call that, that...) from 12-15 FPS, to a paltry 20...and that includes having dumbed down settings from what I had with .35

 

I'm heading back to .35.  I simply can't run .40b1's coding.

 

So..I guess you turn off the 'beta' check mark on the downloader...and that will give me back .35, right?  If not..how to you go back to the last full release?

 

Here goes...

 

I wish others much better luck that I had!

Yep so it seems extended DSFs don't really affect performance for you , it's rather a problem with 10.40B1 itself.

 

Yes you'll need just to uncheck the beta.

 

Ben posted yesterday I think that they added some new OpenGL code and that they are expecting some chaos in terms of crashes , performance etc... in the first beta.

So reporting this with your hardware infromation is a great idea.

Right....I'll do that.   BTW...the sim is now drop-dead-gorgeous!   I just took a flight out of KORS...and had mountain vistas at least a hundred miles away. It is fabulous...and I hope they work back in performance.  

 

Before I go back to .35...I do want to keep the updated airports, etc. So...what should I pull out of my present .40b1 installation...so then I can overwrite it back in, when .35 overwrites .40b1?   I do want the updated airports to show up in .35 for sure!

 

I'll wait until I hear back from anybody...and thanks!

Just finished going back to, and downloading .36, overwrote all the .40b1 content, had a flight...and all my prior performance parameters are back.  Maintaining 30 FPS, with the sim max'ed.

 

Just couldn't run .40b1.  Oh well....that's life....

 

Back to my flight...

I couldn't hold and downloaded the new beta and wow! the new visibilty with ext dsf is superb! no change in performance the same for me too which is good, I did notice a faster scenery loading too, Ben said time ago that with 8 gb ram is ok, so I'm ok. Didn't test any plane yet so no comments there. If in rendering settings are the new graphics presets, it would be great to have buttons for user presets. So far so good...

After I first installed 10.40 this morning, I thought my FPS dropped a lot, but then I rebooted my PC and fired it back up and all was good.  Looks great and runs fast. I'm happy! The ext DSF is a nice addition!

 

Mitch, I'm glad you got it running good again despite having to fail back. I wouldn't worry about it, as this is a early beta version and bound to have issues. I'm sure they will get it worked out for you.

Good to see you finding the positives again. At least the inland water and rivers don't have the sea rolling through them.

Not much positive to say about the water, but I do agree that it's nice they look "inland" I suppose.
