Re: Autogen placement above ~4300 meters not working

Yes, I think your video explains at ~1:35 and after what's happening.

Re: Autogen placement above ~4300 meters not working

Thanks! Guess I will have to do XML placements as an intermediary solution then.

Re: Autogen placement above ~4300 meters not working

Update: This also affects parts of the default scenery: Every AGN tile above let's say ~4100 meters that contains either library objects or buildings will have those disappear at certain angles. This also affects vegetation provided there either a building and/or library object in the same tile. Ve...

Autogen placement above ~4300 meters not working

Wondering for days why some autogen villages around Mt. Everest I placed failed to show up: I did the following test, which confirmed by fears. The P3D v4.5 engine (as well as the FSX engine for what it matters), WON'T show any autogen buildings above a terrain elevation of about 4300 meters above s...

Re: Water flattens islands

Not sure which GIS program you're using to create the flatten polygons. SBuilder offers you the option to slice polygons by a certain QMID size. The smaller the QMID size you slice it to, the more likely it is that the flattens don't "invisibly" extend anywhere where they don't belong. Note that thi...

Re: PBR normal issues

Could this be related to this problem reported here?: https://www.fsdeveloper.com/forum/threads/pbr-and-wrong-reflection.445303/ And how could this problem be resolved by removing the Red channel? How is it possible to remove the Red channel only anyway? Once I remove it in Photoshop, it switches th...

PBR material with no shadows

Hi! Is there a way to deactivate shadows for PBR materials? There's a tag for that in P3D materials, which seems to be missing for PBR materials. Also I couldn't find anything that lets me deactivate shadows through LUA scripting. I would like to remove shadows from materials for the following uses:...

Re: PBR and older GPUs

Makes sense with the system requirements for P3D including DX11.
Thank you very much for the clarification, Dan!

PBR and older GPUs

Hi! This may probably be a dumb question but both Google and the forum search didn't bring me any further: What happens if a user uses a scenery with PBR materials but has an older GPU installed (in my case an 8 year old AMD Radeon 7800 series which most likely never was intended for PBR)? Will Prep...

P3Dv4: Trouble with start locations on platforms

I'm currently having the following problem in the latest version of P3D V4 concerning mostly my US Cities X series: For most elevated start locations I choose (rooftop helipads, 3D terrain), the aircraft is positioned on the actual terrain below the given altitude of the start location and not on th...

Hello!
