Photo Scenery

Recommended Posts

Hi All!

 

Does of you with megascenery installed.

 

Do you allow the installer to add the edits to the cfg file?

 

Do you even need those edits in P3D 3.1?

 

What are the best settings for Photo real? In FSX, I used photo real for many areas. I am only going to use photo real for areas with lots of mountains in P3D. I will let GEX take care of the flat areas. 

 

Thank you.

I would not allow any program to make changes without me knowing fully what is happening, and what it would take to reverse their changes.

Hi Edgar, I have lots of photo scenery installed in P3D v3.1, I have a couple of hard disks rammed to the gunnels with the stuff. I have a saved master scenery cfg that I just copy over the original scenery cfg when I install a newer version of P3D.

Once I load P3D it all just loads into the scenery library, It does not load the scenery into the core sim at all.

One thing I will say is that I seem to be getting more CTD's with version 3 that I ever did with version 2.5 and I am looking at a new GPU with 4gb  to try to solve this. many thanks. terry

Hello Terry,

 

I noticed a small hit on performance when I installed the old megascenery Las Vegas Boxed version. I did not allow it to modify the cfg file though. I think it adds Fiber Frame and some other tweaks. 

 

Right now I love the performance without any photo real, but the California and Nevada mountains look so much better with photo scenery.

 

Thanks.

 

Edgar
