Scenery Profiler Frame Rate Booster for FSX/P3D Released

Posted on Mon, 26 Jun 2017 20:32:52 GMT

Easy and effective to work with, Scenery Profiler is an excellent add-on just released for FSX and P3D. It works by ensuring that frame rates can be optimized and performance improved using a pretty intelligent and innovative system. By disabling all scenery that is not being used for some of your flights, this helps to reduce the amount of memory uptake needed by your computer to run a normal flight.

For anyone who has performance issues or is unsure of what to turn off or keep, this can make a pretty fine starting point. It’s a great tool for reducing performance woes on lesser machines or helping to cut through your web of mods to achieve peak performance.

For example, when you are making a flight from Barcelona to Valencia, you have no need for a Berlin scenery package. This helps you to avoid loading things you won’t come across or even come near.

Making Simulation Seamless

Scenery Profiler, then, offers a simple and easy way to determine what is and is not needed. It works to ensure that you can make up easy to work with profiles. These active sceneries are a great choice to have installed, less so if performance is at a premium. This can help to make sure you can enjoy a fluid flight as valuable memory is not being wasted on parts of the world you’ll never be visiting today.

In a short space of time, you can form optimized packages that help you to massively reduce any performance lags. So, if you are sick of seeing your simulator lag and struggle, use this to help ease the burden. It’s more than a basic editor – it’s a profile management program that offers standalone assistance in having your cake and eating it.

A must-have for anyone who wants 60FPS as often as possible. if you are looking or an easy way to enjoy a more progressive form of computer management without manual uninstallations for temporary flights, this is the place to start. Easy to work with and manipulate, it offers a simple and credible solution long-term. 

If you're interested in boosting FSX performance without add-ons, you can read our article here about modifying the FSX configuration files.

Also, FSPS have released software that optimizes FSX on-the-fly with their FPS Boosting software (more information here).

Hi Mr. Stephens and I'm hoping you can assist. I purchased Scenery Profiler some months ago and have never been able to use it. It does not recognize my FSX but instead shows the P3D Icon but with Microsoft Flight Simulator X under it. I contacted the author many times and he tried to assist but seems to have given up. I am running FSX on Windows 7 which is up to date. Thanks for your time.
