That's an excelent screenshot, vnts...

Only thing I'd change is to disable the osm2city roads and use an ortho scenery instead.

Framerate doesn't matter for SOTMs... I take mine often at under 1fps

The AC file object density isn't anywhere near as bad Manhattan which happens to be almost all AC file buildings (and seemingly more buidlings than needed) - so CPU bound FPS hit isn't bad. Manhattan is probably the worst case by far because of the cutofff point between AC file and shader buildings - areas around even other big city centers seem to have a mixture of the building types, while Manhattan is all AC file buildings.

However, people with even old pre-Ryzen AMD processors were getting 12-15 FPS in Manhattan [1] - not to mention Manhattan reportedly working (i.e.benefiting visuals) with LoDs turned down on a 4GB 2 core laptop with a mobile GPU.

The city textures would have looked a bit better with photoscenery in that screenshot, but it's a tradeoff - the area around Madrid has updated regional definitions with increased detail which isn't visible as the surrounding terrain was covered by haze/fog. The solution to the city textures problem is texture switching once objects have loaded.

I think the reason you may be getting low FPS is because you're running many (high resolution?) monitors from one GPU - or/and maybe that GPU is also bottlenecking in the rasterisation stage with settings AA turned up .

Well... if I do dedicated SOTM screenshots, I crank the resolution to 8k... right there is the issue....
On normal flights, I usually fly 1x or 3x FullHD... depending on the scenery and aircraft, I get either locked 60fps or just 8-16.... only a new CPU can change that.

I have just realised that your image is actually in .jpg format. Initially, when I opened it in a new tab, there was displaying a .png version of it. I remember you wrote about such a problem previous month... Anyway, everything is okay - there is no need for you to change anything in your submission. :wink:
