The best one is:TurbulenceScale=0.500000Or even lower..turbulence in FS is always too much!Johan[A HREF=http://www.phoenix-simulation.co.uk]Phoenix Simulation Software[/A]Unofficial PSS website:www.people.zeelandnet.nl/johd

This section is as is, from the FS2k2.cfg with all settings maxed, the only lines that can't be changed from with in FS2k2 that I would recommend changing are the last three lines.The second line from the top can also only be altered manualy as well but it only adds slightly better detail to just certain areas of high detail Mesh terrain and I found it not to be a worthwhile trade off for the performance hit. but if your inclined you can change its value from =19 to =21(TERRAIN)TERRAIN_ERROR_FACTOR=10.500000TERRAIN_MAX_VERTEX_LEVEL=19TERRAIN_TEXTURE_SIZE_EXP=7TERRAIN_AUTOGEN_DENSITY=2TERRAIN_USE_GRADIENT_MAP=1TERRAIN_EXTENDED_TEXTURES=1 TERRAIN_DEFAULT_RADIUS=2.500000 ;max decernable value 9.900000TERRAIN_EXTENDED_RADIUS=4.000000 ;Max decernable value 9.900000 TERRAIN_EXTENDED_LEVELS=1 ;values above 4 are hardly decernableI run FS2k2 as set up with these values(last three lines):[TERRAIN]TERRAIN_ERROR_FACTOR=10.500000TERRAIN_MAX_VERTEX_LEVEL=19TERRAIN_TEXTURE_SIZE_EXP=7TERRAIN_AUTOGEN_DENSITY=2TERRAIN_USE_GRADIENT_MAP=1TERRAIN_EXTENDED_TEXTURES=0 ;0=off 1=onTERRAIN_DEFAULT_RADIUS=5.000000TERRAIN_EXTENDED_RADIUS=8.000000TERRAIN_EXTENDED_LEVELS=3If you are using a Nvidia GF3 or better card, you can see the difference these settings make by forcing the Video drivers to use a slightly negative LOD value for D3D mipmaping as well as to enable anisotropy set at a min of 32tap via your favorite tweaking program.Paul
