Industrial Smokestack Issue?

Recommended Posts

Could somebody when they have time fly out of KPHL up to about 7000 feet and see if they see long streaks into the air from the factories around the rivers.  It looks like what the bridges were doing in 2.4 before they fixed the issue.  Now I'm seeing it with smokestacks.

 

You can fly out of 27R up to 7000 then turn to a heading of 180 and look back toward the airport and see if you see this issue.  I use the F22 and only takes about 5 minutes.

 

Not sure what is causing my issue but if nobody else sees this I will restore from my ghost I made at install as something may have corrupted my files.

 

Thanks you in advance.

I think I have seen them around Vancouver.  This was after the tall bridge problem was fixed.

 

I'll check again later.

I think I found the culprit on my system.  

 

g3d.dll from the 12944 patch is causing the smokestack issue.  I replace it with the original 2.5 version on the problem is gone.

 

I've attached a link to two pictures to show the difference.  'This is at KPHL at about 5-7K feet from runway 9 slewing forward.

It may just be my system and a fluke but at least I can get rid of the issue now.

I posted the issue a while ago on the P3D forums but received no response.  I suppose its buried now deep in the boards.   Maybe they cannot reproduce the problem or its just system dependent.

 

Replacing the dll works good for me so far so I'm happy.

Ah... Now the question is, where do they hide the original  dll on the P3D forums...

I saw your post over there just now. There's quite a few posts from people like that with no response- which I'm sure means they're troubleshooting or "fix was imminent."

Looks like the same problem is back in Prepar3d v3. Are you seeing the same problem or not?

 

Thanks!

Yes it's still there. I just ignore it as it's just a flaw that I've got to live with.

You could pot on LM forum. I did once but it got no response so they probably cannot reproduce the issue.

Yeah, it's still there. I've been trying to ignore it as I'm not sure it will be addressed, and may be due to older graphics cards
