CockpitTexture=3

CockpitMirrors=1

CockpitReflection=1

EffectsDetail=3

TerrainDetail=2

TerrainTexture=3

HorizonDistance=3

GroundObjectDensity=3

WaterDetail=3

CloudsDetail=2

Best regards.

Think it was DetailMeshSize in FLIGHTENGINE.INI - turn it up to 11 for the graphic option you use.

 

 

[HighDetailOption]

HorizonDistance=14000.0

DetailMeshSize=11 <-------------

DetailLevel=2

WaterEffect=2

NoiseTexture=1

MaxTextureRes=512

And don't forget to set ObejctsFade=FALSE in options.ini, otherwise changing detailmeshsize won't have any affect!

It works :D I downloaded the last version from TW site.

 

You guys rule and have saved my a** :grin:

 

I couldnt find any readme file for TW extractor, What do I do after editing the FLIGHTENGINE.INI file? Do I have to put it inside the Mod folder?

It worked! With DetailMeshSize=20 looks perfect but drops down FPS to 20's with high res texture maps.

Reduced to DetailMeshSize=9 for normal gameplay.

 

With DetailMeshSize=20 Looks perfect for Screenshots, Strangely my GPU doesnt even like running the game, it doesnt get warm as playing other games. There must be something with game's engine.
