Thread: Major texture issue!

  1. Default Major texture issue!

    Does anyone have any ideas? I only have an area around my aircraft that appears normal and then the rest goes to mush.
    This has appeared out of nowhere globally. I have recently installed airports. To troubleshoot the problem I have replaced every folder and file in my FS installation with the default FS folders and files. No custom files were left in there at all. I additionally ran a default FS9.cfg, removed all nVidia graphics card settings for FS9 and the problem persisted. Does not appear to be any hardware issues on my PC. Got me stumped!

    i se ethis when i change anisotropic settings.the higher that setting, the bigger the sharp area.
    it might introduc eanomalies tho, so i keep it at 5, then i see no flickering textures.

    It's in the video card settings. You should be able to right click the desktop and go to the video card control panel. In there you can find the setting.

    OK, thanks. Anyway, his problem is solved. He changed the visibility from unlimited (to 70 miles, I think)

    Just to clarify, not resolved so people don't think the problem is gone. The problem is with more distant textures so I thought changing visibility settings would hide the problem. After a proper flight I found it does not.

    It is not a problem. It is how FS9 works, always been that way, always will.

    May I ask if you see this occur during your flights?

    Mark, Stringbean is right, in that the tiling effect you're seeing is always there no matter what.
    There are ways of covering it up though. I do it by editing the FS9.cfg file and changing a setting in FSUIPC:
    In the [Weather] section:
    DefaultVisibility=144841 <-- This is the terrain visibility distance in metres, equal to 90 miles.
    Lower down the list you'll find:
    MAX_UNLIMITED_VIS=144840 <-- Atmospheric visibility distance, equal to 89.99 miles.
    Note that the atmospheric visibility is LESS than the terrain visibility.
    If you reduce the atmospheric visibility further, to 96560 or 60 miles, this will cover up the tiling effect.
    I actually use 48280 or 30 miles.
    In FSUIPC I uncheck the 'Allow external programs to control FS own weather' box. External programs CAN still change the weather, but NOT the maximum unlimited visibility of 30 miles which I set in FS9.cfg above.
