VC shadows

Recommended Posts

Hello.

 

I was able to manage VC shadows "working" but it works only in KSFO airport (Flightbeam addon scenery) and no shadows in any other airports or in the air. Sounds strange but I cannot figure out why does it work on in SFO on the ground only. I did many flights in different areas and weather conditions, no shadows.

I read many topics here and checked all setting and it looked normal to me. I wonder what else can cause this issue.

 

W10 Pro, FSX-SE, PMDG 777/NG

 

Thx for looking.

Try loading the default Maule somewhere in Europe at say 10am so sun is quite low and turning in a circle. Provided you are in dx10 mode and aircraft casts shadow on self is selected then you should see VC shadows.

Ah ok - so now build up from there - which is the aircraft or location that is problematic?   What does the diagnostics in the DX10 controller report?

Looks like I have shadows now. I use PMDG 777/737. Issues could be related to weather or anything else.

Another thing to check is that the line

 

ForceVCShadowMap=1

 

is in the Display section of the fsx.cfg file. This will force VC shadows on most aircraft. VC shadows should be present anywhere, not just a specific airport location.


Thanks

Yes. I have ForceVCShadowMap=1 in cfg. Will keep testing.

Thank you.
