Black Water Textures - ORBX

Postby eburt » Wed Apr 10, 2019 11:21 am

Hi All,

Can someone tell me if the black water texture error has been fixed in the latest update? (4.5) If not, then I'll only update the client rather than the scenery as well.

Thanks,
Ed

Hi Ed,

What black water texture issue are you referring to?

Hi Rob,

They happen once Orbx Global is installed. I've fixed the issue by disabling Winter Ice textures in the Orbx config. Orbx feels it's an issue with P3DV4. The problem with this fix is that now there are no frozen lakes in winter etc.. I'm enclosing a link t the issue and the fix I used. It seems to have worked , so that's all good until next winter :)

I'd post a pic of it but I dont see the option. Basically it happens globally and only in rivers and lakes. There will be black textures here and there.

Best Regards,

Ed

I don't believe Orbx has said this was a problem with the simulator; rather, they admit it is a problem with their Vector product and have yet to come up with a fix.

Ahh I see. I've misread it then. I will enquire with Orbx.

Best Regards,

That worked for me. I no longer have the black patches.
