LOD performance hit

  • First many thanks : great work ! I love this new version :love:


    Just wanted to report that it seems to me the display distance (LOD related to distance) should be a setting in the sim (maybe it does exist but I did not found it)


    The reason is I saw a great performance hit looking at the horizon despite I had incredibly good performances looking to the ground even to a quite large distance. So it seems to me the sim displays details far in the distance that I can barely see myself, but with the cost of a quite 50% performance hit !


    Anyway it is "just to let you now" : Sim works great "out of the box" :thumbup:

  • Is anybody else having an Issue with the Game crashing upon opening it?


    When I first installed it, all the graphics settings were set to medium, and I set my Textures to high, as I played on High in FS2, and now it won't open.


    I tried reinstalling it to see if it would reset the graphics settings, so I could at least get into the main menu, but it seems it remembers from before I uninstalled it.

    Remove your "C:\Users\...\Documents\Aerofly FS 4\main.mcf" file to reset the settings.


    Aerofly FS 4 has a higher GPU demand and if you previously had Aerofly FS 2 on high you should now go to medium. Ultra should only be selected with really good graphics cards and all settings are shifted towards newer hardware.

  • Just to confirm that it stutters a bit compared to AFS2 but with a RTX3080, in VR (rendering 1), it's always enjoyable in Ultra.
