Mega Addons with Amazing Performance in 4K - Part 2

Recommended Posts

Thanks! Will try this in v5, but I'm mostly interested how this will work in v4? Anyone experimented?

@Skywolf thanks for sharing your story.. my situation is a little different.. i am struggling to get 20+ fps in heavy airports (like WSSS & YSSY) with QW or PMDG fleet, AIG, Orbx, EA on, etc.. 

I do get very good fps with OMDB and new VHHH v2.. 

I have i7 4790K and 1070 8GB. 

all my P3d settings are medium, 60 hz monitor, unlimited fps, vysnc, TB off.. 

My real question is "why am i not seeing the big FPS improvement that DX12 or V5 promised, at the mega airports, even with very modest settings?".. 

Flytampa told in their forum post that they saw a huge fps benefit in SYD in v5.. its fairly smooth at the gate, but once you approach 16R over the city, i'm below 20 fps.. my landing was so stuttery, that i re-attempted my landing with all sliders slammed to the left, EA off, AIG off and then it was a decent 25+ fps thru the approach..  

I get good fps at most airports, but the super big ones like WSSS or YSSY drop my fps to 15 or lower during final approach.. this is in spite of me disabling all fps hungry features in the scenery configurator like moving cars, other animations, etc and scenery/autogen sliders are all at normal (below dense setting)..  LOD at medium.. 

I have only done 7 flights so far in v5, so still a lot of flying and testing to be done.. 

If i lock my monitor to 30 hz, that may still not help me with the mega airports, if fps drops below 30 and it certainly will..  

I have a 1070 also when EA is on and I turned off cloud shadows it was a huge difference! Also set cloud resolution to medium

Actually now I get good FPS everywhere. Turns out the major resource hog was AIG. I disable it while landing and turn it back on after landing.

One of the things that I observed when I did this testing is my cpu setup.  I do have a Haswell-E which has lot more pcie lanes, using quad channel memory (I have 4 sticks of DDR4 Ram), decent size cpu cache.  I assume all those things help when lots of data being pushed.  I also could be wrong, just an observation.

 

Enjoy the settings

Amazingly these tweaks worked WONDERS in both v4 and v5! Using NGXu, it was a stuttery mess with fps fluctuating from 22 to 45, now I see a completely smooth perfromance with no fps drops, locked at 37.5fps via RTSS (half of 75hz). Bravo for finding this combination!
I left HT enabled of course, since I use my PC for much more than flight simming only.

NOTE: I went with TEXTURE_SIZE_EXP=9, as 10 ate the whole 16gb of RAM! You can use initial values only if you have more than 16gb.

I used LOD of 3.5 with Texture EXP size of 10.  

But I am glad these settings are working for you and is giving you a smooth sim.  Enjoy it.

Yes, here 3.5 also, but with Texture EXP size of 10, my RAM was full just like that. With 9, RAM usage is around 4gb. Smooth performance, and I can't see difference in texture sharpness and LOD comparing to old settings without tweaks.

Thanks!

I will do VR soon, it is just that my schedule is really hectic at the moment for testing.  I barely can get some flight time these days.
