Prepar3D 4k Monitor to reduce aliasing

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I currently have a 16:10 widescreen monitor with a resolution of 1680:1050 and I am experiencing a lot of aliasing, e.g "jaggies" although having Anti-aliasing set to 4xMSAA or 8xMSAA in Prepar3D and in nvidia inspector to 4x sparse grid super sampling and "Enhance application settings". Particulary during night, all 3d night lights in greater distance are flickering.

I am wondering if an upgrade to a higher resolution monitor (2k or 4k) could solve the problem due to a higher pixel density.

Does anyone who upgraded to 4k or 2k experienced any improvements?

Thanks

Yes 4k will help AA quite a bit but the problem is the shimmering still exists depending on the scenery.  My issue seems to be mostly add on airports.

The pixel density is going to vary with the size of monitor of course.
With a say 28" 4K screen you may need no AA at all whereas a 65" screen might still need quite a bit.

At 40" 4x ssaa does a good job at getting rid of most shimmering. The problem is I can't run it at most airports and have to settle for 8x msaa. Certain airports are worse than others and it's still pretty noticeable but not terrible. There are a few airports that are really bad unless I run ssaa (psp from orbx comes to mind). Keep in mind you will need a good gpu to run ssaa. My 1060 can barely keep up with 4k with ssaa so I may have to upgrade soon.
