Lowering LOD w/o FlyWithLua

Postby Shalomar » Sat Aug 11, 2018 2:47 am

I have given up on FlywithLua. But I saw a post on this forum about someone who lowered the LOD settings by editing an X plane notepad file. This remarkably improved frame rate in VR but the decrease in LOD was not noticeable with the Rift resolution. He (and I) changed LOD to .9 from 1.

This change was overwritten by subsequent updates but I would really like to restore it. I have forgotten the name of the X plane file and also where in my folder I found it.


I have searched every XP forum to no avail. I remember it was in response to a Flywith Lua settings tweaker that this was suggested as an alternative.

Any advice?

Thanx in advance

OK I finally found the file. It is in the main X plane resources folder and is named settings.txt.

I went in and changed terrain/composite_far_dist_bias from 1.00 to .90 and though the sim doesn't look any diff in the goggles my frame rate improved.
