Autogen draw distance

Recommended Posts

Does this seem really short to you? It seems like in the past, I've remembered autogen drawing further out.

Unfortunately, it's a new normal. Cannot be fixed in the meantime.

Seems about right to me. Looked at my screenshots and that's the exact drawing distance I seem to get myself.

IMO its correct, unfortunately. The point is not so much it's short but the strict line beween on and off. This would be less of an issue if it would fade in more continually. I may be wrong, but I feel one of the first 2.x versions, maybe 2.0, got this better.

 

Kind regards, Michael

I think P3D used to fade in/out autogen in the distance instead of "popping" it in like FSX?

It still does. The drawing distance was reduced however. I guess to gain VAS and performance.

In Prepar3d.cfg, section [sCENERY] you can increase easily the tree draw distance with AUTOGEN_TREE_MAX_DRAW_DISTANCE

 

Coupled with the NO_POPUP option, it gives very good result as expected.

On my system I'm using now 13000.000000 and it suits my need (default is 9500).

 

Trees now appear far, more or less at the same distance than autogen buildings.

I might be wrong but it seems that this issue popped up in the forums with the release of 3.2. Thats why I am wary to leave 3.1. where I do not see an obvious demarcation line between autogen-carrying and autogen-free textures and  autogen popup à la FSX.  Except the lights at night, of course where they have  always been here.

Yeah, it must be new. Now that I think about it, I remember someone doing comparison shots a few months back.

 

Hopefully they rectify this in 3.3 or make it an option. I understand the OOM stuff, but some of us don't have to fly a 777 into Heathtrow to have fun and I'd rather have extended autogen.

Forgot to mention it works on v3.2.3

What is NO_POPUP option?

It's:

[SCENERY]
...
POP_FREE_AUTOGEN=1

which is the default. Setting AUTOGEN_TREE_MAX_DRAW_DISTANCE=13000.0 (which is the maximum value) may result in a very obvious "tree line" off in the distance. Some systems have this problem and other don't exhibit it.
