I see no point in trying to set the SS in both game and OTT. As you stated one will override the other anyway. I personally prefer using the in game settings in DCS. And yes I have tried it both ways.
You are able to run DCS with a 2.5 SS on a 1060 card and get great results?
Are you sure it is being applied? My 1080 Ti would not even achieve that, and I have many hours into DCS 2.5.
Are you running DCS 2.5 or 1.5? Which map?
Wow, thanks guys! I take it this is a popular game with many people. I've tried changing the pixel desnity in DCS itself and I honestly don't even think it is working, 1.0 and 1.3 look the same and the performance doesn't change. As far as I understand SS, It's very GPU intensive. In a game like onward, changing the SS to 1.2 turns the game into a flip book, putting it back on one has a fluid 90 FPS I assume because I don't feel sick at all. @sabrejet what video card are you using? 1.8 PD is really high, even for 1070s and 1080s, but I don't understand how DCS uses this info so maybe it doesn't matter. 1.8 seems extremely optomistic for a 1060 though. I will try the suggested settings. I don't feel like loading it right now, I'm still recovering from my last flight, that was the day before yesterday!
