surclaro.com and simviation.com have lots of freeware and you do not have to register.

As far as avsim goes I have to set my cookies to accept all cookies for that site to work.

All the keyboard commands are listed in the game, but these are the throttle commands:

F1 - 0% throttle
F2 - Decrease throttle
F3 - Increase throttle
F4 - 100% throttle

Sweet. Are you using tileproxy for the google earth textures?

Yeah definitly install vancouver+, its the best scenery add on I have seen so far. Its simply massive and I'm going to be able to put in many hours exploring the areas. I had no clue it covered 30,000 sq km, otherwise I would have purchased it by now, though it is a bit spendy.

FSX is CPU bound, so none of the settings you choose in game will stress your GPU's. The only way to stress the GPU's would be to use supersample AA, and I am curious how much you can do with SLI. I use 8xS via enhancer with a single G80.

These are the settings I use give or take. Some scenery packs use higher mesh and texures, so I increase those sliders to match what is supported by the scenery.

In addition to these I set Global Texture Resolution to Very High, cloud draw distance to 70mi, and I turn off Bloom, Traffic, and Aircraft Self Shadows.

Keep in mind I do not use SP1, othewise I would have water at High and autogen would be at Very Dense.

M stands for meters. 38m Mesh resolution means the elevation points are 38 meters apart. 1m textures is 1 meter per pixel.

The default textures and mesh in FSX are 1m and 38m, so setting those higher has no effect, unless you have some add on scenery that uses higher resolutions. If you have FSGenesis mesh for example, you would want to set the mesh slider to 10m.
