Hey Richard Sennett

Recommended Posts

I posted this on the Night Environment forum but it's crickets over there, so I'm re-posting it here ...

 

Richard, thanks to your repeated posting about how wonderful it is, I've downloaded my first set of NE scenery (PA). And while the installer crashed my machine all the way to re-boot, I added the scenery manually and took a quick spin. All I can say is WOW and THANK YOU (to Chris, too). It did, eat more than a gig of my available VAS, but I still had everything set for daytime flying and I know that's something I can fix in config and tuning. Because I definitely want this on at night, all the time, everywhere. So thanks.

Great shots these! :smile:  I am already hooked on NE but have just used European ones so far. Is this in the USA? Looks fantastic, thanks for sharing. As Rich mentioned, you can tun off loads of things at night and don't notice the difference, so that you can turn NE settings quite high. In the graphics settings for P3D you can save different settings for day and night and switch easily between them.

VAS usage is not 1 gig - I had all three levels of the NE scenery turned on simultaneously (RTFM, dude). Looks great, and I saved a "Night" setting with all the sliders that don't matter much at night (textures, etc) turned way down and I'm getting 30+ FPS. A lot of fun.

Hard to know. I just installed it and ran with whatever settings I was using in the daytime. I do have HDR turned on, but other than that, this was the stock NE without any changes to settings ...

this looks like P3D, which version are you on?
