    Default Advanced Animations?

    i heard that turning off advanced animations off will result in higher frame rates

    question is, what animations are affected by turning advanced animations off?

    all i know so far is the 747 wings and jetways

    Hi,

    Check the pilot's hands in external view of the ultralight with advanced animations on and then off. His arms move with the control bar when they're on. Also, the elephants, giraffes, bears, etc. just slide along with animations off as opposed to moving their limbs. I suppose it would impact the frame rate but I've never noticed it. I leave them on just to see what happens.

    many scenery downloads have advanced animation. such as people walking with moving legs and people marshalling the aircraft into parking.

    With Advanced Animations OFF, the wings on the Glider won't flex. The control surfaces won't move (visually), although the plane WILL fly and respond to control inputs. SPOFF

    The biggest difference is the airport detail, from what I can tell. I love to have activity around the terminal, so I keep mine high. I give up some frames, Im sure, but to me, its worth it.
