Re: 4.3 HUD issues - blanks out on landings on some aircraft

The users says it happens with V4.5. I felt it polite to try and help.

Don't worry, I have learnt my lesson about this forum.

Re: PBR ground, unusable due to jagged shadows

Hi Rob

Did you get the link to files in the PM? It sits in my outbox folder but does say sent.

Re: PBR ground, unusable due to jagged shadows

I do up the shadow map quality in cfg file. 4096 opaque and 2048 translucent. It gets nice shadows with not much performance impact. Perhaps the shadows on pbr ignore this setting in cfg?

Just a thought for the investigation.

Re: PBR ground, unusable due to jagged shadows

It also happens if a texture map is attached. LM have some files to test. Perhaps it is just me.

The shadows do not AA when projected onto PBR surface it seems.

Re: PBR ground, unusable due to jagged shadows

The ground above is just a plane with diffuse colour. No texture to rule that out (happens with textures added too). The only texture setting difference between the two is PBR False or True.

I'll set something up at a default airport and send by PM, so you can test it easily.

Re: PBR ground, unusable due to jagged shadows

I increased the shadow map values in cfg. It seems to make little difference to jagged shadows on pbr ground.

OPAQUE_SHADOW_TEXTURE_SIZE=8192
TRANSLUCENT_SHADOW_TEXTURE_SIZE=4096

PBR ground, unusable due to jagged shadows

Hi I have been adding PBR ground textures to a freeware scenery I develop. The general effect is more interesting than specular, but I find I must abandon it for now as the PBR seems to create very jagged shadow cast on it. AI aircraft for example, and the jagged nature makes for a flickering effect...

Re: 4.3 HUD issues - blanks out on landings on some aircraft

I found the HUD cut issue, or prop half cut was fixed. Try starting a flight in the aircraft with HUD on a grass runway, preferable with mountains to fill the HUD. Make sure you move forwards as that made the HUD disappear. If it's OK, then the HUD cut on landing will be a different issue to the Z o...

Re: Trees have wierd box around them

It looks like textures settings not set correctly in the model file. Have you tried contacting the scenery designer?

Which scenery is it?

Re: Extreme FPS drops P3D4.4

I would disable all my sceneries and reduce settings to low, then rebuild one by one to see if there is a culprit. Looks like an object loading issue to me, or traffic perhaps? Do it with clear skies, then introduce clouds. Maybe try a card bechmark progam to eliminate specific card issue. Heaven is...

Re: Cloud colors at Night

Does it all look correct in default? Use PTA to replace default shaders to see. One of the option in menu. Can not remember which.

Re: Cannot Uninstall Content for v4.3

Did a repair then was able to uninstall it, but then of course have to reinstall client scenery and content and activate licence. Happier to see just 3 current entries though.

Re: Cannot Uninstall Content for v4.3

I too have this issue, except mine is a 4th entry for P3d in add remove programs. I have Client Scenery and content for v4.4, but a 4th entry Prepar3d professional V4.2 still remains. I can not uninstall it. The little tool you linked too can not see it, then asks for product code. Not sure what it ...
