FSX is sucky

Recommended Posts

Hello dudsters,I'm new here & I got Flight SimuLator X for my birthday today :)My dad used to have a baron like flightsimulator x baron but flightsimulator x baron has some probs.I have snow clouds under my airplane all the time.It looks really silly. IS there a patch for this. Also, the clouds look very bad & hit the mountains in an ugly way.flightsimulator is very slow too. I have alienware rig with sli Nividia 8800 hardware card. Why is it soooooo slow? Is there a patch page somewhere for all these problems?My friends say old version of flightsimuloter is greater than this X one. Is that true? I can take it back & change if so.where can i get this Flytampa flightsimulor? it looks much better than FlightsimultorX.ThxBrent Hopper IIIhttp://forums.avsim.net/user_files/170369.jpghttp://forums.avsim.net/user_files/170370.jpg

I run both FS9 & FSX, as I have preferences with both. For flight across the "Wasatch Front", I prefer FSX. For specialty airports/areas such as Fly Tampa, and FlightScenery Portland, or Glacier Bay, I prefer FS9.

Looks like you have some way top go to optimise your settings. Suggest you post all your settings in the hardware forum, and your driver version and card settings, and we'll see what we can do. FSX does not have a cloud problem - that's a visibility or temperature inversion layer. I've seen those from the cokpit of a real plane many times.FS2004 - ACOF was the previous version and with addons it could match or exceed what you see here. But you only have FSX in its default state at the present time, wo who knows?A patch is due from Microsoft. Suggest you spend some time getting used to the sim and reading the forums. There is much to learn! Allcott

Thank you Mr L.Adamson.Youre pictures are very nice.The mountains look like my mothers coffee cakes & you have no trees.If I turn the tree on it runs at stutter speeds. ugly & horrible.I don't understand the last picture of FS9 - FlightScenery Portland.I found portand in my fsx & it was all brown & ugly.What am i missing??? My othere videogames run at 100 fpss.

FSX is optimized to run in the 20-35 fps range. Flight sims don't need 60 fps like a shooter game does.In your graphic setting make sure you turn off light bloom and ground scenery shadows, also make sure you set the water slider no higher than low 2.x.

As general rule, I run FSX with auto-gen off. Water effects are usually Off too! This is good for about 10 fps, as I prefer usually 25-30 fps. There are also "tweaks" with files that use partial auto-gen, but I just don't bother tweaking. Flightscenery Portland, is a payware addon for FS9 (FS2004). Very detailed and looks great.L.AdamsonFSX with plantlife detail, but no auto-gen:http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/170378.jpghttp://forums.avsim.net/user_files/170379.jpghttp://forums.avsim.net/user_files/170380.jpg

Yeah, people are funny. I post a couple of logical questions and they go ignored...this idiot insults the "game", the forums and the users that frequent here, and people jump at the chance to help him.

Some of you need to chill..... Did anyone think that this may be a younger user, just needing some help?? Yes, "sucky" may not be the most appropriate description, but he has been respectful in his posts. The same cannot be said of some of you in this thread.Brent, set your weather to clear skies. The clouds under the plane and around mountains will be gone. Improvements in this area are coming down the road.Jimhttp://www.hifisim.com/Active Sky V6 Development Team Active Sky V6 Proud SupporterHiFi Beta TeamRadar Contact Supporter: http://www.jdtllc.com/AirSource Member: http://www.air-source.us/FSEconomy Member:http://www.fseconomy.com/

Could also be an older person posing as a younger person to churn up something in what has been a calm place for quite a while now?-the problem with the internet is that we never know. Honest questions seem to be met by helpful answers-that seems to be universal. Those with antagonism seem to be met with antagonism.If it is a young person-don't you find it sad that "sucky" is a part of their normal vocabulary-do they know what they are saying? In any case-let's tone it down on all sides and get back to the calmness that has been here for quite a while.http://mywebpages.comcast.net/geofa/pages/rxp-pilot.jpg

Those screenshots look like they've been through a Photoshop filter. Maybe Impressionist? Maybe not...

Jim wise words there, the only thing I might add is that IMHO "sucky" is a fairly reasonable description of FSX, well at least a lot more accurate that MS's FSX's on box required hardware configuration. Best and Warm RegardsAdrian Wainer

Hi FolksBrent -Your screenies are showing 2 different matters.Your 2nd screenie is the haze/inversion layer as explained in other posts.The 1st screenie, with the 'smoke' appearing below the user aircraft,(also just visible in screenie 2).Did you use slew mode at all ?If so,there is a known issue where effectsbecome 'stuck' to the aircraft after exiting slew mode.ISTRChanging aircraft then back again should clear it.HTHATBPaulhttp://www.basys.f9.co.uk/resources/images..._sig_500x94.jpg

Another troll. I wonder why people still answer you trolls. Get a life and grow up.Now, now. No need for such a hostile tone. This is a personal attack which shouldn't be tolerated according to the latest rules.

All I know is, mentioning Mother's homemade coffee cake is making me drool. My own Mom, rest her soul, made the most excellent Struesel...good stuff....would give anything for a taste right now. Yummm....Heya Brent, I think ya just got off on the wrong foot with some folks becuase of an innocent spelling mistake - if you meant "dudesters" as in, dudes, well then, it's 'dude-sters" and not "dud-sters' which would have a wholly diferent meaning....know'm'sayin? What a difference a letter makes. :)As for FSX - well, sounds like this is your first full-blown sim, and welcome to the world. The thing is, it's not really trying to be a world/graphic simulator in the sense that everything down on the ground is gonna be shown to the Nth. detail with leaves on the trees and lil' bushes and Taco Bell burrito wrappers blowing around in the streets. What we got is a pretty fair approximation of the world that you have to take as given - now, there's ways to spend more bucks on extra add-ons that increase the level of detail, but for getting the whole world on two DVD's, well, that's about the best that can be done at this point. And the thing is, it's really about aviation anyway, not so much the world in shocking hi-def detail. You gotta consider what the sim is really trying to do and spending all the CPU time on - the mathematics of flight physics, weather physics, AI for the traffic and air traffic control, updating the lil' gauges to reflect every bump in the air and the fuel the engine is consuming, plus updating the graphics and trying to show all the terrain accurately based on your ever-changing position, and many other things - it's just worlds away from the simple stuff that a first-person shooter has to do in a much more limited spatial environment.On top of that, yep there are some known performance items being addressed with a coming patch. Very soon, matter fo a few weeks I'm sure. So hang tight and do what the rest of us do, fine-tune those sliders (which are really meant for systems that don't even exist yet) so it runs decently with a compromise, and you'll soon catch on to the real deal of what this flight simulator (or it's previous version if that's what it takes) can bring to you. As you may see, opinions vary widely and in the recent past it was not always pretty...some of the reactions above are based purley on a desire not to return to that same world which was finally buried. You'll get more than an ample amount of help here once the regulars see you're not out to stur stuff up, which I'm willing to believe you're not trying to do. Cool?
