56 FPS! Have NEVER obtained that before...

Recommended Posts

Wow...does time invested pay off...

I spent the last two hours, completely auditing my Custom Scenery Folder...exactly what do I have stuffed in there, pre and post my total commitment to Ortho4XP'izing XP11.

I started deleting, and rearranging the .ini order hierarchy.  

I did Cape Breton Island (Nova Scotia, Canada) in total, at z17/z19 and before I cleaned house, and reordered the .ini file zzz's, libraries, possible interference downloads...I would get at my same baked-in XP11 sim settings, around 28-33 FPS, pretty constant. I was blown away with the next time I fired up Cape Breton, Ortho4XP'ized...  Well, pictures speak for themselves...I now am getting 56 FPS, up from a high of 33 prior.  I have never seen 56 FPS at any time for a constant in XP11 before.  Go through your Custom Scenery Folder. Audit it. See what can go...what is 'anchor' stuff, and fully audit and adjust your .ini entries and layering.  Trust me...it is totally worth your effort!

Here's the beautiful morning, before departure....

How many GIGA of Ortho have you created so far Ses?

Just over 1/2 TB, 585 GB's, Jcomm. Right now I am adding Tennessee and Kentucky to the groaning weight my My Book is starting to bear. No complaints, so far...shhhh..."but then it has no idea what's comming towards its spinning discs".......shhh.....

All my tiles are z17/ and z19 2 km's around the airport property, custom as well as global.

Can an HD get arthritis?  I'll let you all know, LOL!:biggrin:

I'm starting to do the same (create Ortho4XP) around airports I often fly to and from. Big difference I must say.

Thank you guys.

I had ZL19 around LPPT, but the old sceneries from a Spanish site, not Ortho4XP.

I have used OSM, BI(ng), US_2, and I think I'm going to try a few more untried yet, such as;  GO2, just to experiment. I have had great color-match on most tiles, with BI though, so to answer your question, BI is my default, so far.

I had a substantial increase for FPS too. I went from high 40's low 50's to high 60's to low 70's in the area I usually fly in (KPWA), Oklahoma City. In San Diego with MisterX6 scenery I used to get in the 30's now getting high 40's to low 50's, about the same at KLAX and KSNA. My machine is an I7 6850K@4.49Mhz, water cooled, a GTX 1080 running stock, and 64GB of DDR4 RAM. Got this machine for X-Plane 11. As someone in another thread commented, we only use flight sims for an excuse to upgrade.:dry:

Ain't that the truth! This hobby has cost me a fortune over the years.

One other improvement I noticed (besides +frames) with this update, is that I can crack up HDR from 2xSSAA+FXAA to 4xSSAA+FXAA on my 970 without loosing any frames. Great job LR!!!
