View Full Version : Low res option?

My ventures into writing missions in flight sims (CFS2) was limited because of the numbers of planes needed for historical accuracy.(Flying Tigers Missions) I have ALL the data from Dan Ford,for alot of the missions, including his work with Japanes documents, but the number of planes is often over 160, which slows my computer, and even good mid level computers to a crawl. There has been some good discussions on this in the sim outhouse CFS2 forum, (I havent seen any low res planes yet though.) as to limit the number of polys in a plane for a low res version, so as to get high number of planes with decent frame rates.
Is it possible to do some low res planes for good frames? High numbers of planes are what makes flight simmin' fun!

High Poly count does not limit the number of planes in a FB mission as is easily verified by testing, its probably the FM and AI calculations.

You can accomplish low res planes by switching visibility distance to low.

The planes (and ground objects) will then be limited to their low poly LODs.

Cumulatively, the reduction of polycount and texture size will have the most effect in cluttered scenes (eg. downtown Berlin).

Thunderboy..

BTW, that frame rate counter on my sig is photoshopped in. No way my frame rate would ever get that low, unlike how it does on your machine.

Did I mention I'm buying a Radeon 9800 tommorow? It's spelled "damn" by the way.

Fennec -

I'm just having a good time - no worries - my rig isn't as bad as I made out... I really think your sig is funny.(and good)...it was just a running gag.. and in character for me, not real funny apparently.


and I can spell damn, and lots of other "special" words.. I just get going on the keys is all..besides I didn't want to actually damn you - so I misspelled it purposely, I'm superstitious that way.

cheers pal. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/35.gif

...Didnt take that long at all I bet, its just a cut and paste jobber!

I need a bigger rig alright. When will the PRESCOTT (64 bit)be comming off the line? I hear it will be next year.with 200 planes, there should be a good LOW RES option, so some level of HISTORICAL

...accuracy can be maintained in missions. Lots of missions will include 150+ aircraft for historical accuracy. Id rather have real numbers, than super pretty. Just my opinion!The flight sims are always a couple years ahead of the computers, but with 10000 RPM HD's,64 bit Super (expensive) chips and super RAM, whey might just catch up next year!
