FSUIPC and visibility


Recommended Posts

Hi Pete,

Well, I'm enjoying fs9 quite nicely and hav erecently discovered something . The biggest boost in frame rates for me is the reduction of visibility which I learned from your previous versions of FSUIPC. Here's my question..almost invariably when I download weather thru Jeppeson (within fs9) it defaults to approx. 50 mi. visibility and light clouds, which is typical for the area in which I live. Now, when I open the weather drop down menu, I see the weather slider all the way to the right (unlimited visibility) When I move that slider to the left to about 40 mi. visibility, I get a pretty dramatic jump in frame rates with very little difference in quality. If I install FSUIPC, (haven't purchased it yet) can I get FSUIPC to limit the visibility to under 50 mi. regardless of what weather I download? BTW, I'm not using ActiveSky or FSMeteo.

Thanks,

Mark

At present, not with localised weather downloads, no. The weather filtering only operates with weather provided by external programs such as those you mention, or global weather which you can set up by clearing all weather then setting your own.

I am currently investigating a method of re-allowing taxi winds and perhaps smoothing winds too, no matter where they come from, and if that is successful I may look at applying visibility limits across the board too, but I don't know if any of this will work yet, so I cannot promise anything.

Regards,

Pete
