Just a correction on the above post -- yes P3D (all versions) use shaders, that is what is in the shadersHLSL (and others) folder.

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.

Hopefully, the next version of P3DHF can solve this chronic illness.

I too have this exact issue at nearly every add-on airport since upgrading to HF2. The ground poly at FSDT KLAX, trees at UK2000 EGCC, FSDT KIAH, FlightBeam KIAD, to name a few...

I never saw this issue on HF1 or earlier.

And you have, of course:

1. Made sure that all of your add-on airports are v. 5 compatible, and

2. Posted questions about these issues in with all their manufacturers?

Here is a video showing the serious impact of the EA display problem on the actual flight, making HF2 a very painful problem product.

A few more video demonstrations of how annoying this issue is.

Hello everyone,

Thanks for the reports and examples of various sorting issues present using Enhanced Atmospherics. We are aware of certain cases where distance fog and object sorting with Enhance Atmospherics is incorrect. We are working to fix this in our next update.

Hello world !

Maybe the RGBA texture of DXT3 and DXT5 has raised the problem.

Hi Rob

I am also experiencing this problem in both P3d V5 HF2 and P3d V4.5 HF3. It happens with both EA on and off.

Hope this helps.

Many Thanks

Dom
