P3D 3.2 WAVES - Can I slow them down?

Recommended Posts

Great to see some wave action now in P3D but...they are moving way tooooo fast! Does anyone know of a way to slow them down? Any edits in any xml files?

 

EDIT: More info from FSX experiments here:

Seems to help. Will continue experimenting.

 

If anyone else has success slowing down their P3D waves please post here!

 

Thanks

I too am trying to slow these heinous waves. I found that same simforum topic, but it seems you can slow these waves only so much. I edited the red lines even further, but its not clear if the waves are slowing more at this point. 

 

 

By trial and error, I find that the following changes make a big improvement:

For Emitter.0 :
Rate=0.2, 0.2
Z Particle Velocity=.25, .5
For Particle.0 :
Lifetime=4.5, 5.5
X Scale=25, 40
Y Scale=5, 10
Drag=0.1, 0.15

I've deleted Emitter (etc) .1 completely, which I think is for the receding waves.

Hope the above helps.


EDIT: Ok wait a minute! Scratch everything. I completely deleted the fx_waves.fx, reloaded P3D and the waves are still there. Something else is creating these waves. That file has zero effect. Meh...back to the drawing board.

Thanks for that helpful response.

Damn that's annoying. I didn't notice much difference either. Maybe P3D makes a new copy of the fx file if you delete it (like with the cfg). I dunno. The search continues to eradicate comic waves from P3D! :D
