612 downloadsOnce started as a simple performance tweaking script FlyAgi Tweak Utility has grown quickly and is now a very powerful tool to adjust and fix many aspects of the X-Plane simulation experience. The tweaking options cover performance and environment enhancements, aircraft tweaks and features, a simple sound engine bringing some new sounds into the simulator, an advanced controller configuration menu and fun features like bird strikes configuration. All functionality the utility provides is configurable and it does not force the user to use any of the options one does not need or like. If there are other scripts out there doing a better job in some regards just use them in addition and enjoy the features you like or need - every feature is completely optional and can be switched off. The utility automatically detects if third party weather programs (SkyMaxx Pro, xEnviro, UltraWeather XP) are installed and configures itself to be compatible with these programs without interfering in any way. Furthermore the utility is compatible with many other lua scripts and if you find incompatible ones I will fix incompatibilty as soon as possible to make sure it can be used the way you need it. FlyWithLua As the tweak utility is a lua script you need FlyWithLua to make use of it: FlyWithLua Next Generation Graphical user interface Features Performance tuning The tweak utility provides some simple but very powerful performance tweaks. These tweaks have a high impact on FPS performance and all of them can be adjusted on the fly - no placebos, no scenery reloads. Fast Clouds for dramatically reduced GPU load and better overall FPS performance Switch off the X-Plane water effects for a huge gain in FPS Switch off the road traffic which can also be an FPS killer depending on settings and location Adjust level of detail (LOD) manually or use the autmatic LOD control feature for smoothing out performance changes Environment Enhancements There are many options available to tweak the environment visuals to your likings - you can optimize them for even better performance or enhance your visual apperance. Advanced clound manipulation for optimizing the looks of clouds, very useful for optimizing the appearance of additional cloud texture sets Manual fog and haze control or automatically changing haze based on weather situation with the additional and fully controllable X-Visibility plugin Disable the white or grey out effect when flying through clouds Many shadow options for optimizing shadows for better performance or visuals Aircraft tweaks and features The utility adds some features to all aircraft enhancing your experience with older ones or those lacking in some aspects. Aircraft persistance - return to your plane and find it as you left it before Automatic fuel tank selector changing fuel tanks based on imbalance so you are always on the fuller tank Automatically set barometric pressure if needed Automatically adjust the gyro compass if needed or use this feature to fix aircraft withou manipulation knobs equipped Add crew oxygen supply to any aircraft Additional sounds The integrated sound engine privides additional dynamically controlled sounds - all sounds are highly configurable. Wind sounds Rain sounds with additional heavy rain effect Rattle sounds for ground, turbulence or both Save X-Plane sound volume independently through the utility - this allows for setting up different volume configurations for any aircraft Controller configuration The utility adds some useful options for simple and effective calibration corrections, nullzone adjustments and some tweaks. Add nullzones to your controls without the need of complex response curve adjustment Manually correct the controller's center or neutral position if needed Adjust trim sensitivity Correct weird or just unwanted roll/bank behaviour Bird strikes Bird strikes can be handled by the utility with many parameters to set them up the way you like. Enable bird strikes Set conditions for bird strikes to occur Use damage controls to define conditions for recieving damage from bird strikes View options and aircraft dependent field of view Modify the default view of any aircraft without touching the acf file. This also allows to have different field of view settings for different aircraft. Modify position and view angle for the default view Set aircraft dependent fields of view Performance Demo For demonstrating the performance gain I made a video flying around over New York City. https://youtu.be/WMM5qoPp44s
2,036 downloadsDonation: If you would like to support me, you can always get me a coffee. https://www.paypal.me/JordanAChin For XP 11.25+ This script provides dynamic haze/fog control based on reported visibility, providing smooth visibility transitions throughout all phases of flight. This means no "infinite" visibility the higher you get, no abrupt visibility changes and a realistic looking atmosphere based on reported visibility for the area. Features: * Smooth visibility transitions during all phases of flight * No white out/grey out/blue out when passing through clouds or at night (My older "No White Out In Clouds" script is no longer needed) * No more infinite visibility * More challenge in IMC conditions * Works with default weather (manual and real weather) Compatibility: * Not compatible with X-Enviro * Not tested with Ultra weather, disabling the haze options in that plugin should get it working with X-Visibilty theoretically * FSE v0.5 uses the older gradual visibility script in the TrueHaze.lua file. Remove all text below (or remove lines 122-288) --TRUEHAZE INTERNAL PARAMETERS and this script should work fine with FSE * If you are using the "No White Out In Clouds" script, please remove it as it is no longer needed Installation: This script was tested on X-Plane 11.25, and it requires the flyWithLua NG plugin available at: https://forums.x-plane.org/index.php?/files/file/38445-flywithlua-ng-next-generation-edition-for-x-plane-11-win-lin-mac/ To install, place X-Visibility.lua in the following folder: <X-Plane installation path>\Resources\plugins\FlyWithLua\Scripts\ Usage: There is no interface but it is possible to change some parameters of this script with the following lines: local plugin_on = true --enable plugin local debug_info = false --show debug info local atmoTop_visibility = 30480 --elevation to apply the max visibility, default is 30480 m local minFog_value = 0.6 --minimum fog value between 0.0-1.0, default is 0.6 local atmoTop_Fog = 1.5 --fog value after passing atmoTop_visibility local highAltFogMult = 1 --reduce to 0.5 or 0.25 if you feel the haze at higher altitudes is too strong, default is 1 Acknowledgements: Thanks to @SNowblind7 for his help testing this script and for his initial work in the gradualVisibility script from which this is built upon.
