I love the Vancouver Scenery. I fly almost exclusively in VR. Frames average 35-45 FPS over Vancouver (20-25 at night).
Cant wait for the downtown update. Happy to beta test any code if you like. I use:
Intel I7-9700 @3.60 Ghz
32 GB VRAm4
Nvidia GTX 1070TI 8BM
1 TB SSD
Saitek Yokes, Throttles, Panels, Pro—Flight Trainer
Wow, I wonder why your frames drop so bad at night. I’m glad it is useable In VR. I’ve had a lot of VR pilots tell me it works good.
Do you have any night lighting plugins installed? I know a few people who had plugins that negatively effected frames at night like yours.
No, I do not use any plugin to improve the native textures , might or day. It’s a mystery to me too. In VR, night FPS above 20-25 still is excellent performance. I will monitor to see if anything changes over the next while and will be happy to report to you anything I notice around night flying.
I did an experiment just now. Using the default Aerolite (simple plane) I took off 26L at YVR in daytime in VR and circled over the tower at 1000 AGL left bank : FPS 50-60 . Going to nighttime, same thing, 30-35 FPS. Still very good but not sure why. I repeated the same experiment over Victoria CYYJ, day 60-70 FPS, night 60-70 FPS. I wouldn't worry about it. I've noticed in various sceneries the night version (especially with clouds) gets less performance. Again. I use native rendering from weather, clouds etc no plug-ins. Thought you might be interested .
