Shadow anti aliasing

Recommended Posts

Hi

I'm testing my new P3D sim and I am really amazed by its quality. There is one thing which bothers me and this is jagged edges of shadows in cockpit of Carenado Bonanza  (default). Is this normal? Sim AA setting seem to not affect it at all and 4x SGSAA is not bringing any improvement either.

bothers me too!...AND YES, it appears normal, though I would love to be proven wrong.

 

...never found a fix

VC shadow quallity seems to depend on the VC model itself as well as

the GROUND_SHADOW_TEXTURE_SIZE= mentioned by nonflyingdutchman above.

So yes some planes are going to be better than others.

Also the angle of the shadow and the angle of the surface it falls on can make a big difference.

SGSAA makes no difference to shadow quality.
