Black areas surrounding Aircraft

Recommended Posts

Christian... firstly this TileProxy is AWESOME!... Many thanksI have got G*** maps working well ing FS9 and FSX however Y! which I believe has better resolutions for the US is currently at LOD 15 or 14 a black screen around the aircraft. The surrounding hills and scenery look fine however directly below seems to be black.My FS9 only works well at LOD 13 however I would like to try andg get the 1m res in FSX. Is there a setting in FSX I have to change to get the black area around the aircraft to go? Any ideas on how to fix this?These are my settings for Y!max_lod=15min_level=9max_level=15level_mapping=11,12,14,14,14,14,15color_hack=Nocolor_level=0bulk_extend=50Thanks!

Ok.. maybe some more information and some screenshots to show you what is occuring on either 1024x1024 tiles or 512x512 tiles. This is FSX256x256 tiles work in FSXThese are of Friday Harbor... I suppose easier to work with something that everyone has seen if they have used FSX and TPTop down (F12) view of Friday Harbor. In 256x256 mode then the tiles work. In 512x512 the black area shrinks but it is still there.http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/176014.jpgThe next file is a non-virtual cockpit view without the controls in place...to see what the pilot would see with this issuehttp://forums.avsim.net/user_files/176015.jpgLastly just to show that this does follow you around That is Friday Harbor airport in the top down view and as you can see no issues with seeing the surrounding area of the Airport now, however problems with around the aircrafthttp://forums.avsim.net/user_files/176016.jpgIf I slew to a new position the views around the aircraft can been seen however they are not great in detail.

The black stuff appears maybe because you loaded up FS9 followed by FSX, without shutting down Tileproxy inbetween. Tileproxy has then adapted to serve terrain at 256x256 max and when FSX then asks for tiles it may not get the high level of detail it is asking for.Would restarting Tileproxy and then loading FSX work better? Please try... Well I guess you would have tried already unless your test of FSX was a one-time-attempt only ;)By the way are you using Windows Vista or XP?FSX RTM or SP1?Christian

Ok I rebooted and it did not work. I do run both FS9 and FSX however I made some modifications to the Y! source and also the MAX_LOD which seems to have resolved the problems.These were taken around Essedon (YMEN) near Melbourne Aushttp://i160.photobucket.com/albums/t192/ho...Proxy/ymen1.jpghttp://i160.photobucket.com/albums/t192/ho...Proxy/ymen2.jpghttp://i160.photobucket.com/albums/t192/ho...Proxy/ymen3.jpghttp://i160.photobucket.com/albums/t192/ho...Proxy/ymen4.jpgHere is what I changedProxyUser.inimax_lod=17[Yahoo Maps]cache_folder=cache.serviceY!network_module=libnettilemodule_config="conn=20|rate=1.5|verbose=0|server=http://us.Y!****.com|path=/aerial.maps.yimg.com/img?x=%x&y=%y&z=%z&v=1.5&t=a|useragent=Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 7.0; Windows NT 6.0; SLCC1; .NET CLR 2.0.50727; .NET CLR 3.0.04506; .NET CLR 1.1.4322)"max_lod=15min_level=9max_level=17level_mapping=9,10,11,12,13,14,15,17#level_mapping=11,12,14,14,14,14,15color_hack=Nocolor_level=0bulk_extend=50

Hmm, with Tileproxy beta 5, max_lod is no longer a service specific setting. It is global and goes into the Tileproxy section on top of the INI file.A max_lod setting in the service definition would usually be ignored.So your problem got fixed by a placebo effect. Interesting, I thought it only works in humans. ;)P.S.: Don't tell your computer.

That Max_Lod was at the top of the file just to confirm. It is not out of place.Works very well now though!
