Default scenery causes lag?

Recommended Posts

I loaded into EGKK earlier and noticed I was getting somewhere around 8 FPS which is very strange for my system. After reducing my settings I noticed increase in FPS when increasing autogen settings. However, when loading into KSFO I noticed a dramatic increase in performance with my original autogen settings! I saw at least a 20 FPS boost. Which is strange because both of these airports are quite busy airports. I don't have scenery in EGKK but I have flightbeam KSFO HD. Could the default scenery be causing low fps? 


Thanks for any help on resolving this question!


Ryzen 1950X

32 GB ram

250 GB SSD

x2 1080 ti (I only use one in p3d, is it better to use SLI?)

edit: I also noticed that the low fps essentially stops when I takeoff. I think it comes down to UT live or the scenery and I lean towards the scenery due to all the evidence, but I have no idea 😕

why is that though?

I'm not going to touch that ....hopefully a modeling/scenery wizard will chime in with thoughts for you.
