I can't see how we could answer this without at least a screenshot of what
you mean by "discontinuous", and what you expect the result to look like.

Try converting your models to native OSG format.  OpenFlight really sucks
for loading performance as the database requires a lot of pre-processing to
get into a shape that is suitable for rendering.   I would strongly
recommend converting to .ive for any visual simulation app.

I have no clue what your above 1.1 109 FPS stats relate to, is it anything
to do with the OSG?
