Don't think so. If you are going to use addon photo terrain or water/landclass textures, you are going to see an obvious boundary at the extended texture line. The only thing to try is to hide it by lowering the visibility.scott s..

When I fly below ~20,000ft the photo add-on scenery tile is visible. The scenery tile is suddenly dropped when I fly above ~20,000ft. It's like the extended texture line changes when flying above 20,000ft. Doesn't make sense.

I found that the cure for the "notchy" terrain like the one in your pic was to reduce the "sight distance" slider under Display/Weather in your in-game FS9 settings. I have it at its leftmost setting (60 mi).John G.

I see posts regarding this phenomenon pop up sometimes several times a month.The answers vary, but the unpleasant truth is that those "blocks" seem to be part of how the sim works and you can't make them go away. They are mostly visible at high altitude as they are dependent on the distance from the user aircraft. You can see they form a cross shape when viewed from top-down view with a lot of zoom out.There are tricks like lowering the visibility to the absolute minimum, but that has other unrealistic side effects in my opinion.

I've had the same issue lately. I'd installed nothing new other than Windows XP "helpfully" forcing me to install every freaking update including SP3. I'd be interested in finding the common causes.

I'm still suffering this problem, and it's vexing me since I can see in old screen shots I took over the summer that it never used to do this with the textures. It's like it's now only using 3 levels of detail for textures and mesh in obvious blocks, which makes things look terrible.I tried removing SP3, which is really the only major change to my system since the problem cropped up. I even tried a restore point back to the period I know the textures weren't doing this. No improvement. I'm about tempted to just back up my more important files, wipe my computer clean, and redo the system.----------------------------------------------------------------John MorganReal World: KGEG, UND Aerospace Spokane Satellite, Private ASEL 141.2 hrs, 314 landings, 46 inst. apprs.Virtual: MSFS 2004, MIDCON P-401"There is a feeling about an airport that no other piece of ground can have.

HelloHow about backing up your present texture file,and then use your installation discs to reload the original texture folder and see how the dispaly is then.Andy
