  1. File Name: FSX Shader 3.0 Mod v1.6 File Submitter: bojote File Submitted: 09 May 2011 File Category: APP/GAUGES/TOOLS Shader Model 3 MOD for Flight Simulator X (v1.6) Jan 25, 2011. By Bojote (Jesus Altuve) jaltuve@gmail.com 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. Click here to download this file
