I get that too...  not sure - maybe an OOM thing?  I have Orbx but I get that in non Orbx areas as well.

I do as well and was wondering the same. At first I didn't see as many and thought they were antennas.

I got similar things and I think they're bridges. When you fly low they may look normal but become vertically stretched when flying high. Don't know why and how to fix.

It's not OOM - - at least not for me. I am running Vector and Global. I have bridges turned off in the Vector config tool.

P3D seems to have several "vertical" issues at the moment. I have not seen the one exhibited in Robert's screenshot, but numerous P3D users suffer from "vertical clouds", or those strange "double lines" that look like aircraft contrails rising up from the ground. I sincerely hope that all of these issues are rectified when version 2.5 hits the shelves. Of course, I also want a solution to the missing strobe and navigation lights on AI planes, but I am not optimistic that it is top of the LM agenda!

LOL I got these also.. wondering if it' s autogen that does load strange like this from high altitude...

 

it would be nice if the autogen automatically disable itself when you fly above certain Altitude I really dont care to see trees above 20000ft ASL,  photo real scenery without any autogen is true representation of what it looks like from up there but then the photoreal has other short comings so i dont use it..

 

I never tried to diable autogen once airborn as it doens't affect performance at all... but idk...

This problem has been around for a while. I only saw them when I flew the Majestic Q400. They provided a fix and I haven't seen them since. Could it be aircraft specific in your case?

 

Take a default a/c to the same spot - same lines?

I have those too. I thought they were only on the Q400, but the other day I saw the same thing on the Aerosoft's Airbus....

The question still remains - is it a/c specific or do default a/c show the same? If default are ok - you really need to contact the developer od the a/c.

For me, something about the front windscreen and side screen glass caused it. If I went into spot mode, it disappeared.

I have them as well.  Just got P3D last week.  I use FTX Global, Vector and OpenLC Europe with Aerosoft's Airbus X.

It's another of those issues that will be a bear to track down. I no longer see them, yet many others do. I also use FTX Global, FS Global, Vector, ASN etc.

 

Hope it gets sorted soon.

I got them as well. I am using the Orbx Global, FTX regions, etc. I just noticed them really bad today while flying from Atlanta in the 737....

Yep - - back to FSX. Maybe someday P3D will be all it's cracked up to be. Along with these mysterious alien creations, it's eating through VAS. Probably because it's trying to draw weird alien objects which Earth and P3D just can't handle. ;-)

Disable "Extrusions.spb" in your autogen folder and it'll get rid of this issue.

Rename the file "Extrusions.spb" to "Extrusions.spb.bk".

 

What will I lose?  Are bridges still there?

You lose the bridges but it's something I can live with. Hopefully the next patch will fix this issue.
