    Shadows was the cause. I turned all related to shadows off and fps jumped to 70fps+. I then added some minor increases and have it at 35 to 40fps. . .this includes increasing all autogen and mesh and texture resolutions to much higher numbers.

    Actually Daube, the only item not set as you suggest in your list would be the shadow setting for Trees. . .I'll have to check on that one. Otherwise, my settings currently go along with what you've suggested with the Sim not able to produce much more than 16fps consistently. I flew FSX for several hours today and saw fps hold at around 25fps with most sliders maxed and unfortunately for P3D, as I move between the two Sims to gauge playability and appearance it begins to be rather difficult to tell them apart which doesn't bode well for P3D. When you have to turn off the things that make it look exceptional, then why bother?

    There are three possible reasons for a flight to end suddenly in my FsX Dx10: 1. Blue Screen of Death...usually overheating from too much overclocking of the cpu or the heat-sink need cleaning. Occasionally it can be a ram card or socket issue.. 2. Crash to Desktop... vas usage up to the 32 bit limit. I have FSUICP installed and the audible warning tells me to save the flight before the CTD. 3. Lock-up of the visual with the sound still looping. This is what I suffer most with 1 and 2 above being (fortunately) a rarity. Sometimes the lock-up lasts for just a few seconds and occasionally I need to reboot to clear it. I have yet to find an explanation type 3 and can only think it may be a product of insufficient video ram. I will be updating my card soon and I'm wondering if a 4...

    Based on the aircraft Config section below, can anyone tell me why ATC refers to me as "Citation Citation? When giving other aircraft proximity warnings, that's how ATC refers to me in the Sim. Other aircraft are "Piper Navajo" or "Cessna Skyhawk", but I'm a Citation Citation. title=Citation X paint10 sim=citation model=winglets panel= sound= texture=4 kb_checklists=

    Here is a set of plans I downloaded from somewhere. There is one for a North Entrance and one for a South Entrance that originate from RAF Valley.

    I am really questioning the so-called improvements to P3D any more. Version 2.5 was the last version I had where FPS was almost unlimited, no blurries and everything worked so well I had rarely used FSX any more. Version 3 point blah, blah, blah has really been a disappointment, so much so that my frame rate rarely reaches higher than 16fps, the blurries are back for anything faster than a Cessna 150 and I fly FSX every day and rarely bother with P3D. I am guessing that what's happening is that as the "improvements" pile up, the need for a "bigger/better" system becomes more a necessity to run the Sim than just "something you might look into for the future". I can lower my settings of course (most set to Dense right now, where they had been maxed with 2.5), kill the clouds, kill the...

    Thanks. . .couldn't hurt to try. Ok, already a question: It says that it is important to do backups first using the Config tools Backup function. How do you know that it's even doing anything. There's no indication that clicking on the "Backup" button does anything at all. I don't see anywhere in the P3D folder or elsewhere that anything has been backed up.
