Just got into the FSW.cfg file....

One very nice tweak that works in FSW and makes a noticeable difference and improvement in visuals is manually modifying the runway lights as per FSX, certainly looks a lot better in my opinion. Has anybody found anything equivalent to HideInfoText in the FSX config file?

Thanks,


Andrew.

Can you post that .cfg setting with your preferred tweaks?  I'd love to look at that.

It enables the green pointers etc. in the missions and training flights.

If you're trying to win fps, looking at the Traffic Manager section is also worth your time.The in game slider is useless. I have my boats and cars at 20 and my GA at 35, and I get lots of in game presence for all of them.  Finding the right balance between ai density and LOD (5.5) brought my fps with trueSKY into the mid to high 20's with all the aircraft over all land class. (I have an older system, too)

I have now installed ORBX VECTOR in FSW with LC already installed it`s working but I'm still tweaking.

I don't have ORBX Vector, but I have got UTX Europe installed and working - without the UTX roads and railways which don't work in FSW, but the default ORBX roads and railways are fine so it's more of a merge really. The UTX vector lakes, rivers and canals make a huge difference to the European scenery, and having cities, towns and villages where they should be reduces the amount of autogen and gives a small performance boost. I've got the UTX Europe configurator working as well, so I can change the FSW water textures from blue to muddy, etc. and flatten the inland lakes and rivers which is also a huge improvement.

One part of this 'merge' has involved tweaking the FSW terrain.cfg file. I've edited out the default streams and rivers which appear on top of the the UTX vector streams and rivers. There are breaking waves in the wrong places where inland lakes and rivers have been moved by UTX, these have had to go as well, and there's a small performance boost by de-activating these. While I was at it, I don't like those Utility line strips on the ground which follow the lines of electricity pylons, so I've edited them out leaving the pylons on their own.

This shot shows FS Global 2010 mesh, Horizon VFR UK mesh, a UTX vector golf course and reservoir, an FSX Power Project windfarm on the horizon and power lines on the right without the grass strips, and a default ORBX vector road:
