Prepar3D was built on top of the coding of Microsoft Flight Simulator X. While the devs have done a lot to overhaul the old flight-sim, some of its issues from the original code continue to linger. In particular, you have low framerates and stutters in highly-detailed areas and blurry scenery as you fly along. Many simmers spend several minutes and even hours tweaking their in-game settings and various game files to try and get the best performance (including me…) If you’re tired of going through all of that rigmarole, then this new add-on from FSPS may fix your issues.
The new FFTF Dynamic program has been made exclusively for users of the new version 4 of Prepar3D. FFTF stands for ‘Fiber Frame Time Fraction’. In simple terms, the program dynamically adjusts the values of this operation to allow Prepar3D to make the most out of your rig’s CPU. This, in theory, should increase framerates across the board. According to the product description, the program solves all of the aforementioned issues (framerate drops/stutters and blurry scenery).
Of course, the big question is: does this actually work? Well, I’ve personally never used this program, but FSPS products are typically good. If you’d like to find out, the add-on costs $29.51/£21,17. Check out the full product listing over on the FSPS Store.
