Clueless in PA!

Postby Plainsman » Sat Jun 09, 2018 1:48 am

I can't for the life of me detect differences in appearance based on graphic settings, specifically three settings:

1. Level of Detail Radius
2. Mesh resolution
3. Texture resolution

The following questions are directly primarily at visual appearance not frame rate:
1. What is supposed to change visually if you move this setting further to the right. Curently, my setting is "High."
2. I don't see a difference between 19m and 1m. What am I supposed to see that is different?
3. I don't see a difference between 1m and 7cm. What should I see that is different between the two? Which is supposed to be better, i.e. look more realistic?

I should add I'm playing with a 4K monitor and running at 4K resolution.

I should disclose that I only fly Prepared between 500 and 2000 feet, generally. I don't notice any differences in appearance and it is driving me crazy. Please tell me what is supposed to change when I move these three settings. Thanks.

Someone must know the difference between 19m and 1m for mesh resolution and between 1m and 7cm for texture resolution? When you fly low and slow like I do, what are the best settings? Maybe I should ask the question this way: Which settings for these three things (the other is level of detail radius) have the best framerates vs. graphical clarity?

Plainman , you wont see any more or less than what the developer has made the add on at , mesh and texture are set by the image the developer used so you cannot go higher than that. ORBX says use 10m , reson is they used 10m res in their scenery. I leave everything at max , no problem./
