Plane flying at 2000ft, horizontal and PAUSED.

Weather textures used: REX 4

NO live weather

30fps - clear skies
24fps - fair weather
24fps - winter wonderland
22fps - cold front
21fps - heavy snow
20fps - building storm
18fps - stormy weather
17fps - Gray and rainy
14fps - fogged in
12fps - major thunderstorm


Why are the frame rates dropping like this, when my game is paused and I'm just staring at a static image?

It's not just a REX 4 issue, the same happens when I select Orbx weather textures.

Well fsx is cpu bound so the more powerful cpu you have the better the fps will be. Somethings can bring your sim down when displaying clouds like AA Super Sampling.

It's not a static image. Depending on exactly 'pause' does, you have at best subtracted out all the dynamic simulation work. The 3D view is still being calculated and animated in real-time. Note that you can still pan the VC view when in 'pause' mode.

I'm no REX user and I guess this is why I'm none using it. Cloud texture are... more texture that the computer as to ingest.


 


ASN is very FPS friendly with stock cloud texture and I'm happy with those.
