question

ESPN74 asked FlyingRaccoon answered

Does the graphics engine support dynamic changes to terrain LOD?

Can the terrain LOD be changed during flight, or is a user required to enter the menu to change the value?

I would like to create an application that allowed a user to change between a low and a high setting with the press of a button.

While on the ground if could be on a low setting and after takeoff during climb it could be change to the high setting.

Hello @ESPN74

No event or simvar allows to adjust the graphics settings at the moment and we have no plans for this in the future.

Sylvain
