The below symptoms are regardless of whether I turn pre-cache on or off, and regardless of quality setting (by editing the .cfg file VR parameters), and only since WU6
WU6 has been amazing for me so far at almost any location, however, I experience a noticeable FPS drop at JFK and NYC at the very start of flights (as you’d expect with such a detailed area), but after 30secs - 2mins into the flight, like a light switch, the FPS suddenly jumps back up and it’s very smooth no matter where I fly in the city.
If you’ve got the same problem, I’ve found I can cure mine before take-off. After I hit “ready to fly” and before take off, slide the MSFS VR render scale to minimum, hit apply, then slide it back up to your desired setting (I’m using 100%) and FPS is good from beginning of flight. I need to ensure MSFS is the active application (not in background)
If I exit VR during flight, sometimes I need to do the above again.
I’m blown away that with WU6 I can now have perfectly smooth VR (most of the time), while flying between buildings in NYC, at TAA 100, building and terrain LODS 200 etc. no pop-ins, clear horizon…
