Re: Scenery visible through clouds

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.

Re: P3Dv5 HF2 Scenery Objects Impervious to EA Atmospheric Effects and Visibility

... And somebody said this wasn't in HF1. I have experienced this in HF1 with EA on.
I've never seen it with HF1 which doesn't mean it wasn't there. But with HF2 it is much more present.

Re: P3Dv5 HF2 Scenery Objects Impervious to EA Atmospheric Effects and Visibility

Disabling "Volumetric Fog" in P3Dv5HF2 seems to help. At least with Non-EA.

Re: P3Dv5 HF2 Scenery Objects Impervious to EA Atmospheric Effects and Visibility

If this is not caused by specific settings/hardware, I'm wondering how this could go through beta. I believe the issue is with NON PBR products, anything already converted to PBR will not present these problems. S. If this is true, we'll have a long time to wait until ORBX and others will update th...

Re: P3Dv5 HF2 Scenery Objects Impervious to EA Atmospheric Effects and Visibility

Having done a fresh install of HF2 today I noticed on my first test flights that some scenery objects (BGL not autogen) now appear impervious to the atmospheric effects. This is new with HF2. Is this as expected or is there something amiss with my installation? These shots were taken at noon at LSZ...

Re: Visual artefacts on ultrawide monitor

I have that issue too. It occurs sometimes during view panning and depends on the view angle. Its only in black&white colors.

Re: aircraft crashing in valleys

Thanks for the fast reaction LM. I'm eagerly awaiting the hotfix and I instantly hope that it fixes all those CTDs which I experience in the ORBX PNW Seattle area.

Custom Weather - Wind Directions

As long as we don't have 3rd party add-ons for weather, it would be important to customize the weather by user input. Unfortunately, P3D weather options don't react (are laggy) on changing the wind direction.

Best,

V5 hangs when changing settings or time

When I change some settings via the P3d options menu, the sim hangs when it has to reload terrain data, traffic, etc.. To be more specific, it hangs at 77-80% when traffic gets loaded. The same is true when I change sim time. It hangs during traffic loading too. If it hangs, I have then to open the ...

CTD caused by VRAM managment?

I've just experienced my first CTD. VRAM was 7.4 /9.2 (according to P3D) just some seconds before CTD. I was flying above EGLL with ORBX TE SG active. TrueSky active. Dense weather conditions. P3Dv5 on Win10 (current version), RTX 2080Ti (26.21.14.4237), CPU i7-7820x @ 4.8 with 32 GB RAM. AppcrashVi...

PBR and floating objects

According to discussions in other forums and the fact that more an more PBR airports are published, is it true that LM is working on a hotfix which addresses the issue of "floating airport objects" at certain situations?

Re: PBR and Antialiasing quality

I have this issue as well. I thought updating to 4.5 would fix the issue but no luck. I am using the newest NVIDIA drivers and don't have any shader addons installed. The PMDG 747 looks terrible from the outside, but the updated FS Labs A320 looks fine. Anyone have any ideas on what could be causin...

Re: Frame issues in Prepar3D v4.5

My observation: FPS loss occurs predominantly in areas with high/detailed scenery objects (not autogen). A "good" example are ORBX regions in which more detailed scenery (airports) are in close distance. In this case I observe about 30-40% fps decrease, depending on "Scenery Complexity" settings. It...

Re: Frame issues in Prepar3D v4.5

last observation .... the top lod slider that I normally have set mid way (High) used to have a large impact on framerate and mem usage when set to Ultra vs high vs medium. This is no longer the case, flying in central Scotland on approach to UK2000 airports I get 16FPS (4.4 I had 30), moving LOD u...
