    FS9 quirks

    Making scenery for FS9 for over 15 years has uncovered a whole gang of quirky results, one at a time. But that is a new one for me.

    Hans,

    In my experience that is how the ground scenery appears in real life, so I would say it is more realistic, not less. Even if you are only at 3,000 feet or so, anything on the ground that you...

    object viewing distance

    I have a comment that is related to this discussion. What is your zoom level set at in virtual cockpit? I have found that 0.5 is the level that best reflects reality in spotting objects on the ground...

    I presume there is a beach texture around the island? It is this texture that generates the "wave" movement in the water, and this sometimes spreads onto the land too. I presume that describes your...

    Rivers and lakes stand out more than a street layout from 10,000 feet, and that was what UT gave to FS9 to be matched against the chart on a pilot's lap. For sure it could be used for VFR navigation...

    Custom ground textures are something that I avoid, for several reasons. The usual reason for showing badly is that they were created at a level too close to the ground underneath, which then confuses...

    To put some perspective on this I would just like to remind folks that the same excellent result was reproduced in FS9 15 years ago with Ultimate Terrain 1.2 and Flight Ontario's Toronto scenery. And...

    Am I correct in thinking there was a carbon cub included in Microsoft Flight?

    The weird thing is that while it does not work for AI planes, it does work for the plane you fly. Do we know anybody capable of tweaking the FS9 software to make it work for both? Tom?

    I now understand the thinking behind it. It is another example of the lack of understanding of aviation by the designers of FS9, rather like their decision to mark the path to parking spots with...

    Tom,

    Yep. If I knew how to load a pic on here I could show you an AI plane about to take off and the windsock behind it showing it is taking off downwind.

    Thinking back to FS9 I remember that it needed Ultimate Terrain to become a real simulator and not just a toy. Then along came FSX and I discovered that the Fraser River disappeared 40 miles east of...

    They show up on the parking because flying into a mountain stops the rest of their flying and they skip on down to the next planned part of their flight, which is to park. Happens a lot with AI in...

    I just rechecked to be sure before I write this, but SceneGenX (which I use for scenery) allows a runway to be one-ended, and it does actually work. I have only used this once, for Monument Valley,...
