Is there a way to load/have different profiles for flying in different areas?


For me, flying in New York City puts a lot of stress on my machine, so I would need to reduce down a few settings.


Flying in Jacksonville, I can have my settings set to Ultra and not stress the machine out.


Having the ability to pick which profile to load and have it adjust the settings would be nice (or is this a wish list thing, lol)??

Agree. Would be nice have different graphic profiles bound to a keystroke(s). I've looked into this and there doesn't seem to be a way. The graphic settings are located in a file called UserCfg.opt located in Roaming > Microsoft Flight Simulator. You can edit this file or have three different UserCfg profiles for example, but whatever was last set in the UI overrides any edits made to this file.


It's frustrating when you are flying along at 50 fps, land in a busy or highly detailed airport and frames drop in teens. My wish would be having different profiles, like high, med and Ultra that could be loaded while in flight.

You guys might benefit from using ModManFX. It's an app that makes it easier to load/unload various add-ons at any given time. You can't change things mid-flight but it gives you added flexibility before starting new flights.

Hi Dave ,


Now this might sound silly but to assist with the heat problem on my laptop I got a cake tray {the one with all the holes} and placed my laptop onto it and placed a fan at the front to blow away the heat. The one thing you do not want to do is blow air into the laptop as it may just push the dust further in. I also now run at 1080p and there are no more issues. 85 sounds far too hot to me whatever the manufactures info states. Good luck hope it helps.
