I just upgraded my 8 year old 1st gen i7 860 with

 

i5 7600k OC'd to 5GHz

1070 GTX Gigabyte G1 GPU

32GB Tident Z RGB RAM

Samsung 960EVO 1TB

Z270 Gigabyte gaming 7 mobo

ASUS ROG Swift PG278QR 1440p 165Hz G-Sync monitor

 

Was expecting max everything and get 144Hz+

 

Instead was getting FPS bouncing from 90-140 with dips around 80FPS.

 

Changed my reflections, sea and shadow to med, now getting solid 140-165.

 

Thanks!

Great list!

 

Do you know what "Additional Reflections (SSR)" is?

Do you know what "Additional Reflections (SSR)" is?

 

Of course! Well mostly, SSR is an abbreviation of "Space Screen Reflections" which basically is a an additional effect on top of the standard reflection settings, producing more pronounced reflection profiles. I haven't gone into the performance hit of this setting yet but I'd take a guess that it's probably around medium range to high, if reflections already hits performance that badly having more won't make it better.

 

A comparison picture would speak better than what I could explain. If you examine these pictures notice how the island profile is much more visible. Think of it as Reflection+.

Can you also make a guide on "Audio" and "Control" ? I can't understand the use of some settings there such as "show time in port". Thank you.

Excellent- thank you. 

 

In your opinion is there any particular setting that might be limiting my visibility of smoke to about 7kmwhen zoomed out? There's a weird anomaly where you can't see it unless you're actually zooming in or out- it's not visible when zoomed out and when zoomed in it's barely discernible. It's only as your view is shifting where it can be seen. 

 

Thanks in advance

What setting to show torp wakes as they travel in the water.  I know there is a mod for this, but is there a graphics setting.

Thanks very much. My graphics card crapped out this afternoon so I'm back to the on-board Microsoft graphics "adapter".  Ugh. This guide helped me get functional graphics settings. Not great, but I was spoiled...
