Performace issue - Areas with AltitudeIsAGL=True

A customer of mine has created a mission with 200+ ProximityTriggers and 200+Areas connected to those ProximityTriggers.

50 of these areas have AltitudeIsAGL=True, the others have it set to false. The FPS breaks down to 5 FPS on the runway, instead of 50+ as it normally would.

Changing AltitudeIsAGL to false for 25 areas will result in about 15-20 FPS, changing it to false for all will bring back the full FPS at 50+ for the user.

Would you happen to check if there is a better solution for this.

Many thanks in advance,
BuffyGC

I've asked for permission. If not, I will create two small for test purposes, one with True and same with False? Do you prefer the Bordeaux area or Seattle?

Why not Seattle ? I've never been there yet ;)


Thank you,

Sorry, the user has given his OK. So no Seattle, but this trip is also awesome :)

Thanks again and let me know if you need more information.

The zip contains 2 trips, one with bad FPS and one with good. The difference is only the AltitudeIsAGL flag. Each trip in source code and package to copy for community.

Thanks again,
BuffyGC
