How do you get 10,000 trees on a map with 0 lag? This is how...

Please elaborate! Is it a ground object?

Correct! I don't know the technical aspects of this, but I can elaborate to an extent. This is my theory:

The lesser the lines in the .fld document, the lesser the lag.

This is a no-brainer, but here is an example:

The above picture has about 500 trees in one ground object file (.srf). That means that there will be 1 ground object line of text in the .fld when I place the object in Scenery Editor. Now, if I add 500 individual trees, there will be 500 individual ground object lines of text in the .fld document. It would be wayyy easier for YSFlight to generate 1 ground object than 500 individual objects. Therefore, less lag! Get what I'm saying (if I'm speaking English...)?

That's interesting, but is this any different than having one elevation grid with hundreds of trees? YS still has to read the lines of text, whether they are in a .srf file or the .fld file itself in the form of an elevation grid.

-- Sat Dec 13, 2014 9:33 pm --

And this is another serious question. If YS reads the .srf file when the .fld points to it, does YS have to read the same file each time it is placed in the scenery, or does it cache it for multiple uses? In other words, if YS caches the .srf the first time it is read, would one small .srf be easier to read once and repeat thousands of times than one huge .srf only repeated a few times?

To put it simply, I have no clue how this works. ;)

Nope because for elevation grids, every point will be recorded in the .fld (creating a bigger file with more points). For ground objects, all of the points are recorded in the .srf. only the point of the ground object will be recorded, not the vertexes and polygons. (my favorite word --> ) Therefore, creating a smaller .fld file and a more realistic scenery environment! Plus Plus/Win Win

That actually makes a lot of sense because the elevation grids have a "Hide Face/Node" option so it is still there, just not rendered.

Will there be a ground object version? :)

I've been working on the "Tin Goose" a bit. I've got it all animated (excepting a few details I will add later) and the interior is coming along nicely. I'm trying to keep the face number around 10,000, so you can expect a medium detail model. Now it's basically down to finishing the interior and painting it!

That looks like CHF's 777 to me. Are you sure you made that or are you simply modifying it?

Looks like he's modifying it to become a 777-X with the folding wingtips.

I like it! I see some subtle color differences and highlights. I definitely like the color choices!
