thanks Flyaway,

those are really nice. I don't know what video card you have but I'm quessing it's Nvidea (correct me if I'm wrong). The effects and airport lighting etc. are almost identical to my Ti 4800se, but your ground detail is way better than I can squeeze out of the old Ti (and still fly airplanes)

What resolution are you running at and how much AA?
Which card?

anyway, well done.

I'm running a 5950 Ultra at 1280x1024. With the screenshots I took, I let FS take control of the AA and set to Trilinear - but if I overide that with the Nvidia app, I can get 8xAA and 8x Anisotrophic with no problem. I'm pretty pleased with the card, and there is a huge difference to my previous card - the 5200. The 5950 card specs are as follows:

Graphics Core: 256-bit
Memory Interface: 256-bit
Memory Bandwidth: 30.4GB/sec
Fill Rate: 3.8 billion texels/sec.
Vertices/sec. 356 million
Memory Data Rate: 950MHz
Pixels per Clock (peak): 8
Textures per Pixel: 16*
RAMDACs: 400MHz

👍 Awesome screenshots, a "10" across the board. The clarity of the shots is amazing, I haven't tried any night flying over Las Vegas (nite lights) yet, but now I will.
What FPS do you get with those settings.

Now this I have been trying to find out, I tried the CTRL + Z that you guys mentioned, but nothing. Any ideas how to find out?

You have to hit Shift+Z a few times, eventually you'll get two lines of information (red) at the top of the screen, in the bottom line it'll tell you the fps.

SORRY ❗ ❗ ❗ It's Shift+Z Embarassed

This was with my old card, not to clear.

Just tried it, and still nothing - is there any way I can get there from the menus?

Hehe, found it - it was SHIFT + Z, I looked in the control assignments. I'm getting around 20-30fps when everything is set to max and AA is up. But when descending and all ground scenery can go low as 16FPS and when ascending - all clouds can go as high as 35+FPS. Would you say these specs were good, considering everything is pretty set to the max? To be honest guys, I can live with frame rates as low as 10FPS and not be bothered by it - so the frame rates i'm getting are great.

I leave my frame rates set at 27 now and don't really care as long as the flight is smooth and the screen sharp.

So, what do you have your res set at - what could settings - dynamic scenery... etc?

Right now (I keep changing) I have Dynamic Scenery off, and most of the others about 75%. I would rather have performance now than scenery, but I do want the aircraft shots to be much more clear, that's why the higher setting.
I keep the res high and crop the shots.
