Re: Issue with shadows since P3D v2 to P3D v4 (Due To Cloud Shadows)

Yea amen to that. I've come from FSX SE with DX10 fixer where the shadows around the VC where a LOT better, never saw this behaviour. Granted you could generate cloud shadows in through a DX10 add on but never tried that myself. But I know one thing with the light source changing and shadows appeari...

Re: Issue with shadows since P3D v2 to P3D v4 (Due To Cloud Shadows)

Hi, Brady asked me to post my video here and confirm that unticking cloud casting in the lighting options resolves the issue. I say resolves...I mean the light source doesn't change from dark to light, shadows on and off. I would much prefer to fly with cloud casting on because it looks a lot more r...

Re: Light source changes when you pan in the VC

Hi Brady

Just watched the videos in the other thread and its the same issue, so I'll deactivate cloud casting and report my finsings in that other thread. Its not a massive issue but it is really annoying and dilutes the immersion factor.

Thanks
Sid

Re: Light source changes when you pan in the VC

ok I can confirm restoring original shaders through PTA did not resolve video number 1, which is light source changes when panning the view.

Re: Light source changes when you pan in the VC

Hi, I do use PTA and I already saw that "solution" on Avsim before posting here, I tried it and it didn't work. I'll restore default shaders completely and see if the light source changes. What about the disappearing/reappearing cloud shadows? Associated with PTA as well? I'll do some more investiga...

Light source changes when you pan in the VC

Hi, First post here, I've uploaded this video over at Avsim to indicate a problem with the light source changing from light to dark when panning the VC. The video also demonstrates rain fall stopping and starting (unintended by me). https://youtu.be/4uCh2iJJdno Video number 2 also highlights weird s...
