Weather Visibility Metric Units Issue

I had been experiencing lower than usual depicted visibility in v4 and seems it might be related to the units issue as well, as it looks like the 'miles' visibility numerical value might be getting used as the target visible range in kilometers resulting in lower than expected visible range, while t...

Re: Depicted visibility too low?

Would appreciate if any other users could confirm if they are seeing similar issue, as if not then I will need to further look into other parts of my setup.
Thanks

Re: Depicted visibility too low?

Upon further experimenting with visibility setting in user defined weather option as well as via custom metar weather injection feature such as in opusfsi weather engine, it appears p3d v4 is depicting near about half the visibility of what is set in the sim, setting double the desired visibility is...

Depicted visibility too low?

It has been my experience while doing flights in p3d v4 of generally lower visibility being depicted than what used to be in p3d v3. To check if the set surface visibility in weather settings is indeed being shown correctly in the sim, I took the following screenshots slewing right above runway 9L t...

AI faster operation on runway

While the air traffic AI system has its quirks it is still able to provide immersion of a busy air space up to a certain extent. However there is one area where it might improve further providing for flying with more quantity of traffic but much reduced hindrance by speeding up takeoff lineup proces...

Support for elevated taxiway

It seems currently the only way to display elevated taxiways correctly is to use runway links for elevated portions, as using taxi links causes the terrain to bend upwards below the taxiway. However using the runway type link does not allow the taxiway to be designated correctly and shares it with a...

Re: Running p3d minimized

Have the issue when using default aircraft as well. No problems with losing p3d window focus to other apps, pc is not locked for the duration. Do not see camera related problems as mentioned above probably as don't have any camera enhancement addons installed. After disabling all addon modules was u...

Running p3d minimized - UT2 add-on

Can p3d be run minimized for extended periods of time? I wish to leave the sim running minimized to taskbar for a while to be able to do other performance tasks as p3d does not consume as much resources when minimized. In fsx I was able to do this without issue. However in p3d I am able to only for ...

Texture flickering avatar first person view

Trying to investigate a texture flickering issue happening on most scenery objects, buildings and autogen found that using the avatar mode first person view causes the flickering to occur which goes away on selecting for eg virtual cockpit view and comes back again on selecting first person view.

Re: Landclass anomaly

I agree, the isolated spots of populated areas look fine. Just to be sure I was referring to the long thick lines connecting one populated spot with another, for eg the plus sign shape on the right side in the zoomed second image which is part of larger problem area shown in the first image that did...

Landclass anomaly

Re: Dynamic Light disappeared p3dv4

Is there also a possibility to limit for performance the distance up to which the dynamic lights are loaded? Changing the distance to 1500 in the controller fx sort of does it but only around the initial position of user where flight is loaded and does not load or unload the lights based on movement...

Dynamic lighting and opacity

Does dynamic lighting in p3d v4 support shadow casting and if so how can it be enabled? After adding some dynamic flood lights to airports I am seeing most aircraft exterior the vc and other scenery objects don't cast shadows or show any opacity to the dynamic lights. Although adding to the realism ...
