View Full Version : Autogen
08-03-2005, 01:16 PM
How do I make the autogen of textures be created at a farther distance from the aircraft? Here's my problem, I have down loaded 38m land class for Hawaii, I have my settings set pretty high. When I am overflying land, the textures keep changing, geeting more defined as I get closer and even while I am over it. So it looks like the ground keeps morphing as I fly along, especially over mountains. Is there a way to make the textures get better defined at a distance from the aircraft so I do not notice it as much? My system is pretty good with a 2.8GHz pentium D and 1Gig RAM. The graphics card is very good but I can't remember exactly what it is.

Here are some settings in FS9.cfg that others have suggested and seem to work well for me. I think I'm seeing roads further than before (MIP setting at 4) and most terrain a pretty good way out... it's all subjective, of course but you can make the comparisons for yourself
enclosing a shot made with these settings at Dillon Colorado, you can go to the same spot and see if your mountains are as clear.
new AMD64 and still experimenting a bit myself...

Thanks, I'll give it a try.

It seemed to work some but I still notice big changes in textures for moutains. As I approach them they keep changing and get better and better defined even up to the point when I am practically on top of them. I want to make it so that at let's say 20 miles out the mountain textures are defined to the max and don't change. What setting is that? I don't think it is memory issues as my frame rates are around 60 fps. I noted one big setting change in the config file. TERRAIN EXTENDED LEVELS was set at 232 default, I changed it to what you recommended 3.5 but that seems like a big change.

When at altitude turn off the autogen and your framerates will improve.

Do you even know what hes talking about? He wants the textures to become defined to their maximum when hes further away, not to fix framerate problems.

I'm hardly the tech expert, but I wonder whether turning down fps to perhaps 30 would allow your cpu resources to better service other aspects of the fs9 program...including better defined textures. btw, in your setup have you enabled distant textures. I'm not sure what the checkbox is actually named and am not at my home computer so I cannot take a look. but, look at your display settings and see what might need to be changed.
