Light Artifacts.

Postby SandPro » Wed Aug 05, 2020 8:24 pm

P3D v5 +HF
Noticed this about a week ago... slight random light artifacts when in locked view. More noticeable at night. Haven't quite found a solution with settings, yet.

I am running a somewhat low range CPU... but... this has never been a problem.
I5 3570 4.2 and FPS 50-60, fairly high settings... (with the majority of the scenery.) Smooth, no flickers/studders.
TI 1070
Orbix, Active Sky, with some payware aircraft and airports, etc.

Any help would be appreciated.

@ SandPro ,

Contrails.

Which aircraft in the video?

Have you tested with a default aircraft?

@SandPro,

A Corsair like the one in your video can, especially in a humid environment, pull contrails off its wingtips, which is what you are seeing here in the pull-up..

Several YouTube videos of, say the Mach Loop, show many aircraft pulling contrails of their wingtips during high-G maneuvering before entering the loop.

However, they should be less visible at night....

You also mention that you have a frame rate of 50 to 60 - have you tried to limit to 30, for example?

@ SandPro ,

I see contrails often e.g. during takeoff, climb, approaches (outside view) with various default and payware aircraft.

Naturally, weather conditions and aircraft state must be appropriate for contrails to form in the first place.

Note: some contrails are defined by the add-on aircraft developer.
