How to make camera PDK use highest resolution imagery always

Postby srgriffiths » Thu Dec 13, 2018 5:27 pm

How do I make the camera PDK use the highest resolution imagery and terrain always? I've tried everything.

Adding these to the cameras.cfg didn't help.
SceneryLodOrigin = Camera
TerrainLodOrigin = Camera

Adding this didn't help.
hr = SimConnect_SetObserverSceneryOrigin(m_hSimConnect, m_camera_name.c_str(), SIMCONNECT_OBSERVER_SCENE_ORIGIN_TARGET);

Adding this didn't help.
hr = SimConnect_SetObserverSceneryOrigin(m_hSimConnect, m_camera_name.c_str(), SIMCONNECT_OBSERVER_SCENE_ORIGIN_SELF);

Turning these terrain graphics parameters didn't help
Level of detail radius -> Max
Tessellation factor-> Ultra
Mesh resolution -> 1m
Texture resolution -> 7cm

The end result is that my prepar3d camera image is far worse than the image from a different tool despite them both using the exact same imagery and terrain.
