FSX is not slow. Your uncle PC is old…

I have received several emails regarding FSX slow performance. Well FSX is a world in DVD. Don’t expect your 2-3 years old pc to be able to handle such a complex and tremendous simulator. I have read an article in Portuguese which was actually a review of FSX. They have reported that they get very good frames per second (which is also smooth) in a Core2Due extreme edition Intel CPU with Gforce 7600GT and 1GB RAM and that is amazing. So this shows you should buy a better CPU than GPU.

Here is the review (Link is dead)

Tehran Scenery 2007

I am currently working on the fifth version of my scenery for Fs2004/FsX called Tehran scenery 2007. I have finished almost all ground materials and ready to start gmaxing: [:D]
Things that I have focused on them in this version are, Iran's most important airport called IKIA and the complete scenery of Tehran the capital of Iran. the total number of objects will be something around 1300.that is already too much for busy systems running FSX.I have managed to reduces the number of polygons by using 2D objects and low resolution textures which rotates toward FS camera (user) this is what I have done for my last scenery (Kish Island 2004) and reduced the number of polygons I have used for runway and taxiway light.


FSX is out but …

Hello again. First of all things a big thank to all those brilliant people in FS team, because of them we can now fly! Thank you!
As you now FSX is ready to start its part of job in our PCs for next 2 or 3 years. In my idea FS team have done a great job bringing us the best and it is really beat the rest but there are still thing in my wish list after 3 versions of FS.I am sure that they are aware of that but maybe the are going to surprise us with DX10 patch. Any way don't you think that there should be no sunshine on runway when you fly in an overcast condition below clouds? Yes clouds should have shadow.
And don't you think that this is as important as elephants in Africa?
Maybe we should just wait for DX10.Ok…
