EINN with 2.30GB VRAM ??

Hi guys,

are you quite sure that EINN should use 2.3GB VRAM

This is much more than e.g. EDDK, EBBR, EDDF or similar major airports needs.

 

Cheers

Hi,

That seems strange - what versions of the other airports are you using? Default or addons?

Thanks 🙂

I've tested with several situations.

All addon Airports deactivated = Same

All Addon Airports activated = same

The Vram profiler shows always 2.3GB in user for EINN

The FPS on the airport are top > 60 FPS but I'm just wondering why the airport takes this amount of VRAM

Cheers

Hmm, I'll take a look at what it could be - there is a lot of PBR and detail in Shannon but we built it to run very smoothly despite that, I'm glad it is actually running as it should be 🙂

Please have a look:

First picture is with Texture settings High and second one with MAX.

At max the used VRAM for the airport runs out of control.

I'm glad the FPS remain stable, obviously that is our main target - we try to make sure everything runs smoothly as possible. My instinct is that it's the PBR making the big difference, it may use more VRAM than other airports because there is more PBR, in default airports there is usually very little. With Shannon being in a remote area, we decided to add in more than we would for a more urban airport, because the FPS are already higher in that location by default. 

I'll certainly take a look and see if the VRAM use can be improved, but we are reluctant to sacrifice any visual quality so long as it runs fine and doesn't cause you issues?
