shadows dispappear when rotating view in P3Dv4

Postby 238932 » Fri Aug 04, 2017 7:24 am

I installed P3Dv4 yesterday.

I have shadow draw distance set to max.

whathever shadow quality I use i get the disappearing shadows when rotating the view, inside the cockpit and in external view.

Is there a way to fix this ?

I second this issue. Also nicely visible in this video (from another user over at avsim.com):

I tried a few thing and it was actually PTA that was causing the issue. after deactivating a shader the shadows behaved properly.

Let me know if you use PTA I'll tell you wich setting to turn off.

Nice find, I also use PTA. To which setting is it related? Thanks already for the heads up!

I'm using matt davies preset,

in the cloud section, deactivate "cloud shadow depth" and "cloud shadows extended size" then apply the preset (F9)

the second one might not be necessary to fix the issue but as it impacts FPS i deactivated anyway.

let me know if it works.

Seems to work. Geneios! Thanks for the tip!

EDIT: ok, too early. Seems not to work, sadly. See my screenshots, still the same issue inside VC and outside view. What a pity...
