About This File

   Xephyr Preset


I've been hesitant to release my preset before, but, here we are! 

If you need a hand with this, feel free to send me a PM on the Threshold Forum or via Discord (Xephyr#4872)

Note with the screenshots - the newer ones (I consider them higher quality) are on the far side, so scroll to the end if you'd like to see the most up-to-date screenshots 🙂

WARNING - This is the "FULL ON" preset, and can be quite frame heavy.

e.g. I use an i5-7600, GTX 1060 6gb and 16gb of DDR4. I use XP with ~30fps (FF A320 can take it down to 22ish), which I really don't mind, however others don't really like that idea!


- Reshade (https://forums.x-plane.org/index.php?/files/file/36509-reshade-xp11/)
    - Does post-processing.
    - Ambient Lighting is likely the hardest on frames, however I deem it worthy as it adds a lot to the sim.


- Reshade
    - Install Reshade (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fqLfiqULqUw)
    - Drag "Xephyr Preset.ini" into your root X-Plane 11 folder. 

Thanks again for downloading my preset!
If you do have any questions, please feel free to ask me. 

Don't say I didn't warn you about low FPS!

I was looking hard for addons that made your atmosphere look blue like irl instead of the ugly brown/grey tint X-plane has. All of these atmospheric addons were payware like Xvision or Xenviro, luckily I stumbled up on this preset that looks absolutely gorgeous. I can't thank you enough. Also barely noticed any fps drops, 30 to 35 fps average. I have a 1660 and i5 9400fX-Plane_Screenshot_2020.02.16_-_20.14.34X-Plane_Screenshot_2020.02.16_-_15.43.50

Thank you, best reshade preset for X-Plane. And it works perfect "out of the box", without having to readjust for hours or days. 😀

Looks great. I don't notice too much of a fps drop. In the Rotate and IXEG I was stable at ground (ZL16 Ortho, mrx San Deigo) at around 20 fps. My computer could normally do around 20-25fps in those 2 w/o this preset. And now I can't go back.


EDIT - FJS 727 is not affected and the FFA320 has around a 1-2fps drop for me. Very impressed by this.

Specs for reference - AMD A10-7850k, 12gb RAM, MSI R9 380 4g, XP11.30 Win 10
