-In the graphic ​settings you can adjust the overall quality of how Aerofly FS 2 looks. Adjusting ​graphics settings ​provides ​you with the ability ​to balance performance and graphics quality+In the graphics ​settings you can choose your preference for graphics ​rendering, your resolution and VSync settings, and toggle whether ​you wish to see lens flare while flying
-Open the graphics settings from the main menu by clicking on “Settings” and “Graphics Settings”. ​**Note** ​- If you experience poor performance or graphical anomalies, always check to make sure you have the latest GPU (Graphics Card) driver installed.   +**Note** ​the Vulkan rendering system is still in beta so it's up to you to choose which option works best for you. In general ​you should see anywhere from 5-15% performance increase in certain configurations.

 +**Vulkan** 
 + 
 +{{:​manual:​vulkan_aa.jpg?​600|}} 
 + 
 +Vulkan rendering is a new beta graphics ​rendering engine that has potential to increase performance by 5-15% over OpenGL rendering. Choosing ​this option ​will unlock ​the High Quality Anti-aliasing option. This option will provide better management over jagged edges and flickering objects.  
 +Using high Quality Anti-aliasing may reduce performance in certain configurations. 
 + 
 +Use the Vulkan rendering option and High Quality Anti-aliasing with the understanding that these settings ​are currently in beta.
