    Maybe you should post the FSX.CFG file here.

    Depends on what else has been changed, that we haven't been told about...
    Good idea to ask for the contents of FSX .cfg.
    I always ask for it, because there are often errors introduced unwittingly.

    Resetting the FSX.cfg after changes...

    The Only thing I have 'upped' that I need to reset is the LOD radius; I normally run with 7.5 but, as noted, any setting change will pull that back to 4.5.

    I use the SAVE/LOAD setting feature.

    After I've made changes that will reset my LOD, I go into settings graphics or scenery (i forget which)

    1. Save my current settings to a standard "current.cfg"
    2. open and edit the LOD_RADIUS with notepad back to 7.5 (and/or any other setting that was reset)
    3. Load the edited current.cfg back into FSX - no restart required.
    (total time 30-45 sec; I have a shortcut to the cfg file on my desktop - yes, I use it a lot)

    Continue to fly

    This saved config file ONLY contains 39 parameters - it isn't the whole config file; you should be able to easily change any of these back to your non-standard settings if you want.

    Mine looks like this

    [GRAPHICS]
    TEXTURE_MAX_LOAD=1024
    NUM_LIGHTS=8

    A quick glance doesn't yield any issues.

    I actually set my TEXTURE_BANDWIDTH_MULT to 400 and I'm using a GTX 1050TI.

    My LOD_RADIUS is 4.5.

    MESH_COMPLEXITY is 80.

    TEXTURE_RESOLUTION=24

    AUTOGEN_DENSITY=3

    Add this:

    [GRAPHICS]
    HIGHMEMFIX=1


    After ground_shadows I have these:


    TEXTURE_QUALITY=3
    IMAGE_QUALITY=0
    See_Self=1
    Text_Scroll=1
    SHADER_CACHE_PRIMED_10=1693458432
    D3D10=0
    ForceFullScreenVSync=1
