loading weather takes a while... why?

Recommended Posts

hello everyone,

 

I just started using Active Sky 2012 for my FSX. However, when I am on the vitual cockpit view (seeing the clouds) and when switching to the external view (pressing the S-key three times) the clouds disapper... and then, when I switch back again to the virtual cockpit it takes around 5 seconds to see them again. Its a little bit anoying...  does someone has an idea if there is a solution to this issue? 

 

have a look at the screeshot...

 

1. Virtual Cockpit:

A faster PC, when you go from VC to external and back teh system has to redraw all teh cloiuds, teh more clouds and teh greater teh viewing distance the longer it takes.A faster PC helps.

I have not seen this issue before when using Active Sky 2012. Did the weather update?

This could be. Felipe, what are your computer specs?

 Carlin,

 

here are the specs of my pc, I am about to think that it has probably something to do with the settings I have in Active sky?...

yes the weather, once returning to the cockpit view, takes like 5 sec and shows again the cloud structures normally.

Yes your explanation of the issue was incorrect, it should have being," why do textures take so long to draw when switching views" and as I said a fsater pc will help. FSX caches what view you are in so when you cahnge  views it has to dump the last relaod teh new and than display that takes time, than when yo go back to the original view it has to do it all again. Your PC should do 4.4 gig or higher that will help a lot in many ways. You could also reduce the ni=umber of clouds and draw distance that too will help as FSX will have less to redraw. Its the same problem you gave as fsx redraws teh VC after being in external view.

Overclocking will certainly help, but your PC is far superior to mine, but cloud redraws occur pretty quickly on my PC.  Granted, I use the low resolution textures and limit my cloud layers to 4 layers and I set the FSX water at 1x high.

Wow, that's a strange one. I've never had lack of cloud textures when switching views. Massive delay in VC textures draw in, blurry ground textures and AI plane texture delay but never clouds.

 

Maybe turn your texture quality down to 2048 or 1024 and see if its any better?
