Special effects sliders on P3Dv4

Recommended Posts

The user manual recommends to set to High the Special Effects Details slider.

This is the very first time I have to change it from medium default.

Based on your tests what is the trade-off with fps decrease on a hig-end gaming PC (5930k Oc'ed, GTX 1080, 16 GB RAM @2800)?

Can you specify which effects won't be rendered as expected if I shift the slider back one notch?

That slider simply reduces the amount of particles emitted. Effects across the board will feel lighter and less consistent. For Volumetric Lighting it might create holes in the light beam.

That's all there is to it!
