Scenery visible through clouds

Postby peregrine » Wed Oct 14, 2020 9:05 pm


I get the effect of certain scenery objects being highly visible through clouds at various airports (from various vendors), and occasionally scenery objects in the middle of nowhere. Happens in both V4.5 and V5.

I'm using Rex SF and Rex Env force.

I'd just like to know whether this is a sim issue or an add-on issue?

It is something I have struggled to find any information on. It is frustrating because it is a massive immersion killer.

Any help appreciated!

It is a P3D issue and has been discussed several times in this forum. It is less pronounced when not using EA and turning off the volumetric fog. I eagerly hope that we get rid of it with the next update.

I was just going to post this, this is without using EA:


Besides running out of video ram this and cloud flashing are my only few problems with V5, fix those 3 things and this sim will be top drawer.
