no autogen buildings in a certain area (south lake tahoe area)

Hi: I am using P3D V4.3, and found recently that there is no autogen buildings in south lake Tahoe area (around the state border line Casino area, and it's OK in the surrounding areas). It was fine a couple of month ago, but found no autogen buildings recently. The autogen trees are still there. Can...

Customized autogen disappeared

Hi I was running P3D v4.1 before with customized autogen (trees, houses and cars, etc.) made by using FSX SDK. They looks good in P3D v4.1. After I upgrade to P3D v4.2, all of my customized autogens are gone! So, I did a clean installation of P3D v4.2, still the same. Then I did a clean installation...

Re: Wrong texture resolution

I had a photorealistic scenery with 60 cm resolution. I am looking the texture right below the airplane. The texture resolution looks like 60 cm on 15 cm and 30 cm setting, but looks like 1m on 60 cm setting.

Re: Prepar3D v4, Big drop on FPS when changing view at night

I have solved this problem by removing Ultimate Terrain X (V1). After removing UTX V1, everything turns back to normal. Flight1 claimed UTX V2 is compatible with P3D V4 but I haven't tried it yet.

Wrong texture resolution

I found that, in Prepar3d V4, when set texture resolution to 60cm, the resolution displayed is 1m. So, in order to display 60cm resolution texture, you have to set the texture resolution to 30cm. Did anyone have the same problem?
