View Full Version : FS2002 Scenery.

G'Day everyone. First of all I hope u all had a good XMAS.
I got FS2002 for XMAS (pro edition) and for some reason with everything at its max, some scenery textures are blury. A example would be the Grand canyon. i fly down to the river and the cliffs textures are blury in some places and right in others and same with the river. It looks like somone spilt a bucket of paint on the floor. Is this just me or are other people having the same problems? And if anyone could tell me how to fix it I would be very happy.
Thanks guys. Ryan

In order to help, you'd need to post more information. What kind of system, which videocard drivers, etcetera.
try doing a search using blury as the keyword. Or you can go to the tips site they have some information there. www.flightsimvetclub.tripod.com/main_menue.htm

One thing I have discovered is positively related to blurry textures is trying to get too much from your system. At least that has been my experience. My system....
AMD Athlon 850
nvidia TNT2 M64 with 12.41 driver
I've tweaked as much as I can and have posted results in the past so I won't go into all that now, but what I will say is if I try to absolutely MAX every setting in the sim I end up with horrible blurry textures.
If I bring autogen down to NORMAL and texture complexity down to about 70% things get much much sharper and stay that way.
There are some settings in the fs2002.cfg file you can tweak in the terrain section that also help blurring, but for the most part I think it's a function of only asking for what your system can deliver.

I have a DELL Pentium III 1Ghz, loaded with 512meg ram, and an nvidia AGP Geforce2 Ultra video card (from DELL) with 64meg ram on it
I'm having the same problem that you are with some areas really sharp, and then others blurry. I find that if I hit the p (pause) button when I see one of the blurry areas, that after a minute or two, the textures will paint in nicely... and they sure do look nice! I fly with all of the settings at max because I want to see all of the nice scenery. This is frustrating though, since this happens a lot when I fly in the mountains and along rivers. The scenery is really sharp at first, and then you start to see the areas where it blurs, and then you have to hit p (pause) to allow the video to catch up (that's my interpretation of the problem... I don't know what all is really happening). I've downloaded the newest drivers and I see no improvment to this problem.
Others are having the same problem. FS2002 draws stuff close to you in high resolution, and decreases the quality of the scenery mesh and the resolution of the textures as they get farther away. It is possible to slew (and maybe fly) fast enough to get to low resolution areas before fs2002 can "upgrade" them.
Try slewing from Las Vegas to Hoover Dam. It will likely be floating in mid air. But if you wait long enough or force a reset of the scenery (change season or time of day), the polygons will all get a nicer shape and higher resolution textures.
