Shader Model 3 MOD for Flight Simulator X (v1.6)

WHAT'S NEW

==========

v1.6 - Water now has a 'darker' look at night, like in real life.

- Fixed a problem with 'grids' appearing under certain conditions.

- Minor visual quality improvements at altitude when looking the ocean.

DESCRIPTION

===========

So, what is this exactly? its a replacement Shaders set which has been updated to allow FSX to use the newer v3 model.

FSX was released allowing backward compatiblity with older hardware. this required that the 'default' shader model supported

was version 2. However, newer video cards are designed and optimized to execute last generation DX9c shaders (SM3.0) more

efficiently.

There is a MASSIVE performance improvement when running ATI hardware (specially 5870's), also

distant blurries have been reduced via Negative LOD bias + Anisotropic filters and Water Reflections and bumps were improved

considerably. So, if you own an ATI card you'll get a nice performance boost, if you own nVidia hardware you'll notice a slight

improvement in image quality.
