Am having a problem with South Island West Coast tree autogen hammering my FSX performance. For example, I can run Robin's massively autogened SuperCity and Nelson sceneries with Autogen sliders all the way to the right with nary a problem ... but as soon as I attempt to fly anywhere on the West Coast where there is bush (for example Haast), FPS suddenly go up and down like a yo-yo and I experience hideous stutters.
Yes, I know I can reduce the Autogen slider back to Normal (the "highest" setting where I do not experience FPS loss and stutters), but this, of course, comes with the associated loss of 40% of ALL Autogen (both trees and structures). As such, I am seriously contemplating using the TERRAIN_MAX_AUTOGEN_TREES_PER_CELL= tweak in my FSX.cfg (and yes, I've read most, if not all, the debate(s) between Nick N and Holger Sandmann on the benefits/detriments of such a tweak).
My question is: Does anyone know what the maximum tree density per cell is in VLC? Is it the MS default of 4500? Higher? Lower?
Enquiring minds would really like to know.
