Default P3Dv4 trees or FTX HD Trees

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

My flying I do above Europe.

I own FTX HD Trees. Just did a flight at 2500-3500 ft over the Netherlands and I have to say that I find the default trees very good looking from this altitude. Anyone else tried them and how do you think they stand against the default trees ?

 

Thanks,

Gerard

Interesting point.

I installed my V4 and immediately grabbed the new Central and installed all the regions and HD trees.

I found out I had to shut off the dynamic trees in V4 to see the HD trees, so I did that. Bottom line is I've never seen the default trees...too funny.

Anybody post a screenies of default vs HD would be helpful.

So how do you turn off dynamic trees? Is that the "Dynamic 3d Autogen Vegetation" checkbox?

yes - requires a sim restart

I like the default trees. So I guess the question is should I get FTX HD tress? This is a Mexican standoff!

I made a backup of the default trees and installed the FTX HD trees. Indeed they look better.

To minimize the framerate impact I resized them in half and sharpened them with Painshop.

Dynamic trees I have turned of as a jetflying, just like Dynamic reflections .

Dynamic lighting I will test tomorrow as I am going to update Nice from Justsim.

As far as I know HD Trees are already optimized and should have no impact on fps

In fact they are so optimized that they actually have less impact than the default non dynamic trees.

So there is absolutely no reason to edit them in any form.

The smaller the Texture in size the less taxing on the system .

In this case AG trees one notch more to the right. Or a wider LOD.

Just admit that you have a case of OCD. :tongue:

I don't like the new trees because they're too lime-green and do not blend in very well in a FTX Global installation. The color of the FTX trees is much better and realistic.

I used FTC HD trees on v3, they indeed look much better and I even got few more frames.

Not much, but enough to convince me to keep them. :senang:

From time when HDTrees was released, I can't imaginme fly without them. Especially I love density with ORBX sceneries.

I have P3Dv4,1, Orbx Global, OpenLC and several regions. Basically I only fly in Orbx OpenLC or a region. Everything is up to date on FTX Central. How do I know what trees I have. In summer season the trees I have now have a lime-green colour. What do I need to do to install the HD trees? Thanks.
