FPS gets cut in half when there's 0 clouds.

Recommended Posts

I've reinstalled it twice yet this issue keeps popping up.

I just came out of LAX with a somewhat constant 60fps when my activesky refreshed and my fps got cut in half. now topping 33 at best

after screwing around with custom weather i discovered that having no cloud layers regardless of settings or any other factor will cut my fps in half.

I observed this as well, fair weather gives better FPS than clear skies.

What also puzzles me: sometimes my FPS suddenly drop, from my locked 30 down to 8-10. The only thing that then helps: going into the menue, click several things without actually changing something, then back in the sim and FPS are restored. Something really buggy here...

I have this in my sim too. You would think it would be the clouds to lower the FPS.

Hi all,

after HF1 weather has significant hit on my fps, but opposite to your behavior. Clear skies gives me the best fps, once I have some clouds on the sky than fps goes down. Truesky doesn’t have such big hit like legacy. What helped me recently was to disable full screen optimization in Win 10 for prepad3d v5
