-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.

 You can also set limits to free up graphical resources by setting your limit to 120 or 240. Always try different settings to find what works best for you. **Note** - It is recommended to turn VSync off if you are running Aerofly FS 2 in **VR**. You can also set limits to free up graphical resources by setting your limit to 120 or 240.

-===== Customizing Your Graphics Settings ===== 
  
-{{:​wiki:​quality.jpg?​600|}} +===== Lens Flare Effect =====
-The **Graphics Quality** setting can provide you with specific pre defined quality settings (Low, Medium, High, Ultra), or allow for you to customize your settings field by field (Custom)  +
-To enable the individual graphics settings click on “custom”, ​ this will enable the next five settings. +
-**Note:** Use the (Insane) shadow setting with caution as it will impact performance. Recommended GPU 1080 or higher.+
  
-===== System Requirements =====+{{:​manual:​lensflare_effect.jpg?​600|}}
  
-==== Minimum ==== +Use this setting to toggle the suns rays graphical effect on and off.
-**OS:** Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 10 (64 Bit Required)  +
-**Processor:​** Intel Dual core CPU 2.4 GHz +
-**Memory:** 4 GB RAM +
-**Graphics:​** OpenGL 3.0 compatible 3D graphic card with at least 1 GB of RAM +
-**Storage:​** 35 GB available space +
-**Sound Card:** DirectX Compatible soundcard+
  
-==== Recommended ==== +**note** Turning off the lens flare effect will still show the sun, only those round color auras will be turned off.
-**OS:** Windows 10 (64 Bit Required)  +
-**Processor:​** Intel Core i7 CPU 3.0 GHz +
-**Memory:** 16 GB RAM +
-**Graphics:​** NVidia 980 GTX +
-**Storage:​** 107 GB available space +
-**Sound Card:** DirectX Compatible soundcard+
  
-In most circumstances you should achieve framerates over 100 in configurations that meet the recommended system requirements. ​

-Want ULTRA quality settings, with smooth performance,​ in VRLook no further. Through testing and user feedback we put together some scenarios to help you make an informed decision. AeroFly FS 2 in VR provides you some amazing visuals but you will need the horsepower to run it smoothly.  ​+{{:​manual:​renderer.jpg?600|}} ​
  
-==== VR: Recommended Configuration ​for ULTRA Settings ==== +OpenGL rendering is the core standard graphics rendering system ​for Aerofly FS2choose this setting ​if you are seeing better performance than Vulkan ​or you are having problems in general running the beta Vulkan rending engine.
-**OS:** Windows 810 64 Bit +
-**Processor:​** Intel Core i7 CPU 3.0 GHz +
-**Memory:** 16 GB RAM +
-**Graphics:​** NVidia 980 GTX (Latest Driver Version Required) +
-**Render Scale Factor:** 1.60 **Note:** - This setting ​can be found under **Settings/​Virtual Reality** +
-**Limit Frame Rate:** VSync OFF **Note:** This setting can be found under **Settings/​Graphic Settings** +
-Oculus Rift or HTC Vive.+
  
-**Note** - If stuttering occurs ​in densely populated areas, reducing the **Building Density** will greatly inprove performance with limited graphical degradation+**Note** ​You won't have the option of using High Quality Anti-aliasing ​in this rendering mode.
  
-==== VR: Ultimate Configuration for ULTRA Settings ==== +**Vulkan**
-**OS:** Windows 10 64 Bit +
-**Processor:​** Intel Core i7 CPU 4.0 GHz +
-**Memory:** 32 GB RAM +
-**Graphics:​** NVidia 1080 GTX (Latest Driver Version Required) +
-**Render Scale Factor:** 2.00 **Note:** - This setting can be found under **Settings/​Virtual Reality** +
-**Limit Frame Rate:** VSync OFF **Note:** This setting can be found under **Settings/​Graphic Settings** +
-Oculus Rift or HTC Vive.+
  
-**Note** - Systems with less than the above configurations can also run Aerofly FS 2 in VR by reducing some graphic settings. Most reductions of graphic settings will not take away from your VR experience.+{{:​manual:​vulkan_aa.jpg?600|}}
  
-**Note** - If you experience flashing shadows while in VR, reducing the **Shadow Quality** ​to MEDIUM ​will reduce ​the distance that the building shadows are seen but not reduce the overall quality of the shadows rendered. This may improve your VR experience ​in Aerofly FS 2+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.
