    Default "Bad weather causes nothing but trouble"

    I am having a problem whenever I reduce the visibility in Fs2002.
    I will explain with the aid of some pics.

    Here's what it should look like.

    But when I reduce the visibility I end up with this.

    Believe it or not there is a Piper archer on that Runway. Was you aware they produce invisible ones for the government

    Here she is in flight and it seems as though half of heathrow is in there too.

    Oh and there she is. If I lower the camerea a little below the height of the aircraft she comes into full view and if I raise the camera she disipears. Please note the horrible ground textures. Without redudced visibility its a pretty impressive GB airports addon.

    I have to admit I don't know what is causing this but unless the weather is good outside I can't use real world weather. As i'm sure you would agree this is totally frustrating. I find it stange that if I Increase the visibility all is fantastic.
    I have reinstalled 3 times and updated my driver and to no avail.
    If anyone has any suggestions I would certainly welcome then because frankly I want to do some low visibility flying.

    I don't have an answer for you, but to help those that may be able to help you, you may want to include your system specs.

    Good luck, your problem does seem very annoying.

    Off the top of my head,I would suspect your Graphic card.32mb is not enough to reproduce the graphic detail in FS.That would perhaps explain why the graphics get worse when you select bad weather.The Graphic card has to set priorities and can't reproduce everything at once.Buy a G-force 3 Ti with 64 or 128mb.They're a bit cheaper than a G-force 4,and just as good in FS.By the way,if you can afford it,an update to 512 mb RAM would'nt do any harm.If he's reading this,I would be interested to hear Simons opinion on this,but I think I'm right.Hope this helps

    No having 32MB of video RAM should not produce those problems. 32MB IS enough (just check the game box :D). The effect of low video RAM would be SLOW DOWN not DIMENSIONAL VORTEX TRAVEL as shown above. I would recommend updating all of your drivers, especially your video driver. I would also recomment a GeForce4 TI card.
