Just curious mainly. ¬†I thought it might be causing some poor performance that seemed more server-side (good CPU/GPU/VRAM overhead) so I turned it if several months ago, and I have forgotten what I might be missing¬†ūü§™. ¬†I've always wondered how others use PG or not.

Also, I've thought about adding some city enhancement packs that depend on PG being ON.

Cheers and thanks for playing along¬†ūüõ©ÔłŹ

I live in a region in which they say "not included in photogrammetry". But I always tick it on

I leave it on, but seems it's hit or miss in terms of actually doing anything.

Usually On, but sometimes I am not convinced it makes the sim look better. In fact sometimes it looks worse imo with low res pg and apocalyptic looking buildings.

I'm usually offline for not be exposed to hackers etc. But from time to time I fly online to see the nice photorealistic textures. Wish I could save them on HD for later offline flights.

That's an interesting approach.
If the PC is actually offline, then MSFS will not work and if the simulator is "offline", then that just means that
the multiplayer part will not work.
I wonder why a hacker would target a single and innocent flight simulator enthusiast on one PC at home,
when for the same amount of work, the hacker might be able to extract millions from a multi-national corporation.

They target anybody mostly with spam attachments. It depends on what you're using your pc mainly for. MSFS works offline, I don't need multiplayer.

Anyone who opens spam emails is inviting trouble onto their PC and if they then open any untrusted links,
whether in spam or not, the invitation is redoubled.
The most likely "hacker" in that respect, is the PC user themself.
MSFS may well run with the PC offline, but its main strength, the excellent scenery graphics, does not,
not to mention live weather.
My own view is that I will take the risk of a hacker getting past my router's hardware firewall, the
Windows Firewall and Windows Defender, just to find out that there is nothing of value on my PC.

I used to have PG off with my old rig for performance reasons, but always on since I got the new one.

For me, photogrammetry often looks like a post apocalyptic sight of something that was a city 30 years ago.
As I'm flying airliner most of the time, I don't see a benefit in having it on for now.

Low and slow for me most of the time, so I keep PG on.  If I was a jet jockey, I would probably turn it off.

The latest TIN photogrammetry is excellent though and from what I've seen it's going to be even better in MSFS 2024 later this year, so really looking forward to that.

Because of the type of flying I do, I have a large amount of freeware PG on my PC too.

I have it on, but generally the kind of flying I do, I never really look at it. (airliners, Fenix etc)
