Depends on what you think is similar ;-)I took a shot at about fl330 with on of the cumulus sets (Set 23 Harmonize). Tell me what you think.http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/173179.jpgThis was with resolution 256x256 DXT5 format. I haven't tried the other resolutions and formats yet. As with FS9 you get a heavy impact on fps with several cloud layers and weather sliders to max values.Ulf B

We'll see what Aces whips up for dx10. I'm not expecting miracles but I Think they'll be working on volumetric clouds.

>what system you got there UlfB?>Clayton,Asus P5W DH Deluxe, Intle X6800 (OC to 3.3)4GB RAM (Corsair)BFG 8800GTX (no OC)If I max out the cloud settings and have a couple of layers, FSX only give me single fps. So when I actually fly with ASX I usally ease up on the settings. Still looks good.Ulf B

Clayton,>oh wow you have monster system there!Yeah! And I got a monster hole in my wallet as well ;-)>do you still have FS9? Interesting to know if you can max all>the sliders and clouds and get fluid gameplay.Nope! When I built myself the new computer I choose to not reinstall FS9. Some times the wait for SP1 and good ad-ons, like ASX and X Graphics, felt very frustrating and I seriously considered to bring life back to FS9. Hopefully we'll have GE and UT released as well.Ulf B :-)

>I'm running ASX with detailed clouds in FSX on a nold system->and it's fluid>no real FPS hit (which amazes me)Try this to check out if you have a fps hit like I have:1. In FSX set all slider on the Weather tab to max, except rate of change, which you set to low.2. Create two cloudlayers of cumulus clouds. Both overcast (8/8) and the first layer from 3000 up to 8000 feet and the second from 16000 feet to 33000 feet.3. Set autogen to dense and Scenery complexity to max.4. Water to 2.x Low.5. AI traffic to 50% and 30% for airline and ga traffic.6. If you have a new nVIDIA card, set AA to combined (using nHancer) to supersampling with 8S AA. AF to program controlled. (This setting eliminates allmost all shimmering). AA disabled and AF enabled in FSX.Tell me what fps you get when you fly the default Boeing 738 at fl350.Ulf B :-)
