Help, Sharp horizon and grey Autogen in fog

Recommended Posts

Erm the subject title is the main problem I am having, while using FS2004 with a Radeon 9700 (I Think!), didnt seem to have any problems until installing FSSkyWorld and Soft Horizons, since then it has gone very sharp, and in low visibility the terrain ends abruptly with no shading , and all autogen and rwy/taxi textures go a very light grey! Also getting a lot of flickering on buildings and aircraftIs this a driver or settings problem, if someone can answer that would be a great help.Best Regards

Soft Horizons is just a slightly modified set of bitmaps--it wouldn't cause the problem. FSSkyworld has more to it, but it also shouldn't cause any issues.

It is possible that an improper install of FSSkyworld or Soft Horizons could also cause issues.

Yea, thought that myself and tried replacing the SoftHorizons with FS Standard, and then Uninstalling FS Sky World, just dont want to uninstall FS2004 and reinstall as I have a lot of addons , but would it be possible to keep an old .cfg and then replace the default install scenery cfg with it? Try that possibly as I cant fly in lo-vis, and living in Britain that is rather unrealistic!

Soft Horizons doesn't touch the scenery cfg. It sounds like possibly the env bmps got wiped from where they belong. Please post a screenshot showing the issue and we'll go from there... :)Regards,John
