is the first pic with mipmaps enabled?looks like it, anyway I think that the mipmaps allow my processor and my graphic card to render a less quality graphic when is not near me, and when is not needed, and that keeps my frame rates higher, why should I get rid of them?

You can make other adjusments to get the visual clarity of aircraft paint job's & the benefits of mip-mapping as well! The downside of no mip-mapping is "swimming/flickering" background textures.When my CPU was new about six months ago, I went through the same setting changes. Noticed that my "blurred" default Baron, became very focused with map-mapping OFF. Later, I found that changing the Geforce3Ti500 video card's Direct 3D settings from "best performance" to "best graphics" would do the same thing, but I could also retain mip-mapping. Later, using NVmax........ I do the same thing with even more control. L.AdamsonAthlon 1900XPGeforce3Ti500512DDRram

Comparing screenshots like this can be missleading because while disabling mipmapping will give a crisper image it also causes pixel shimmering, which can't be seen in a still image. David

And, no one can convince me to turn it off. Please allow me to post big screenshots.On:http://ftp.avsim.com/dcforum/User_files/3ce8218307e1471e.jpgOff:http://ftp.avsim.com/dcforum/User_files/3ce82191080edc3b.jpg

Georgi,I agree my graphics with mip mapping off look exactly the same as you second pic absolutely crappy lol. I mean sure you may get a better looking aircraft but whats the point if everything else looks crappy. Id never turn it off its a "loose loose" situation. You turn it off the quality goes down (way down) and the performance also goes down.Andrew
