  1. Hi guys, Looks like I have finally achieved on what I have been wanting to do for a while with my hardware. I figured out the trick for people with 8GB video cards and having at minimum 30fps with the following addons installed - including one of the most fps hit area that has plagued almost all of us for ages. Finally pulled off Slick FPS at 30fps with 30hz 4K monitor (TL/DR - see also pics) - My VRAM stayed around 5.2GB in SoCaL area with all that autogen and flying. AT KORD area it jumped to 6gb but still tons left. with Set the following in P3Dv5 and CPU - My tweaks are even less in the second round but the addons complexity increased insanely. 1) Disable HT and No Affinity Mask - I tried them all. Let P3Dv5 do its thing. 2) MAX_TEXTURE_REQUEST_DISTANCE=300000 (Default is 1000) 3) Enable HIGH_RESOLUTION_TERRAIN_TEXTURES=1 in Settings 3) TEXTURE_SIZE_EXP=10 - this goes in [TERRAIN] 4) LOD_RADIUS=3.500000 (Yes, put LOD to 3.5 with Texture Size ExP to 10, and hi res textures - all 3 go hand in hand) - If these are not like this - 8GB Video Card will get vrOOM!!! 4.5 LOD will straight up OOM with that high texture exp) These settings Do the Magic with High Resolution Terrain enabled for 8GB Video Cards. I am on Windows 2004 Final Build for May 20H1 (19041.208) - this mandatory for VRAM management - See my other thread Enter The Addons 1) Orbx Socal (yes LA area) 2) FSDT KLAX 3) AIG planes 4) PMDG 747 5) FS Pilots 2020 NG Mesh 6) Chaseplane 7) AS P3D and TrueSky Enabled in P3Dv5 My hardware CPU is slightly older i7-5820K, 16GB DDR Quad Channel 2400, SSDs, Nvidia 2070 Super RTX, 3- 4k Monitors, Rift S I am flying at 2500 FT at 355 Knots (yes, b/c I can) with the PMDG 747 over Orbx SoCal and taking off from FSDT KLAX with few AIG birds. All shots are in 4K monitor with AS P3D Hotfix 2 Beta and TrueSky enabled. For some LA shots - Screen shots were taken in Time Preview Mode for dusk/dawn shots. Main flight is at late evening. This is way you all will see the graphics are super sharp - 30 fps outside and inside was ranging from 26-30fps at sometimes even more - though monitor is at 30hz 4K. Mission Accomplished - Kick A ** Graphics Finally - So slick, So smooth with Orbx Regions and PMDG Extra - Same Settings - Global+OpenLC NA+FSDT KORD+AIG+FS2020 NG Mesh Who Says the Sun doesn't move - It moves when I play in Time Preview mode Quick Recap of Settings Enjoy and be safe everyone.
  2. A really quick flight from Bakersfield to San Luis, CA in the always incredible Flysimware Lear 35. Superb paint by @scottb613! If you don't own this product yet, you should. PBR exterior, stunning interior and lovely hand flying plus F1 or RXP GTN/GNS options. The best payware bizjet for ESP sim to date. Also flown online at Pilot Edge so I didn't have the best angles to take... but enjoy nonetheless!
