Blurry ground textures p3d v3.4

Recommended Posts

I get blurry textures sometimes a little and sometimes a short distance it is really blurred. What can cause blurry ground textures?I have the best affinity mask for my CPU and my Vram not overload. When I see blurry my Vram max 1.8GB 2GB. I have defraged my hard drive but no difference.

Well, imho some blurriness is part of the P3D/FSX world... The causes may be different (an many and very system dependant) but it's not very odd or weird to get some blurry textures every now and then. My advice: get used to it or at least don't pay too much attention to it. If you don't actually focus on it and stay busy keeping your plane in the air and going the right direction, it won't be a big problem. But that's my view on it. ;)

Not an expert on these issues, but look into your graphics card. Seems to me, because of the way textures are loaded from the sim into the video memory, that you'll need a 4 GB video card. But anyway, this is just a hint, let's hear to the experts.

Cheers, Ed

Have you tried running without an affinity mask (and HT enabled) just as a control? You might see better terrain rendering, at the expense of fps and fluidity.

Throw away the affinity mask tweak (Stay away from tweaking P3D), and try to upgrade your NVidia drivers, or revert to an older set (Always do a clean install of the NVidia drivers).

Thanks all of you. I think IF I take away some of The tweaks it might help but i want fps so I get a good flying experience. And my sim looks okay

Could be my graphics card that needs to be upgraded to run blurry free texures att higher settings

Yes, you're quite right

Since 3.4 i need to set am @85 instead of 116 and FFTF=0.01

My 4790k is oc @ 4.6 and fps in 4K are between 30 and 60

I am also experiencing  blurry   texture  and no way is my hardware as you can see on my signature,  and furthermore  if I run the same scenery/aircraft/weather etc on FSX-SE I have no issues.  To me the problem  is the infamous rob Peter to pay Paul with those 32bits sims.

I had blurries at all distances and it took several days of trying different things to finally find that for me the answer is HT off and no affinity.  Works great.  Using 6700K at 4.7GB and 980Ti.

If blurries are a problem, stay away from the FFTF tweak. And btw that fps doesn't say much: first of all because it simply doens't say much, period, (it's all about smoothness: you can have perfect performance at 30 fps and totally crap performance at 60 fps), but secondly who knows you may have autogen turned off all the way... or whatever, so what's that fps number worth without knowing all setting. And used addons.

And THIS, my dear fellow simmers, is the winning answer!!!!!!!!!!!!!! "it took several days of trying different things to finally find that for me the answer is..." If everyone gave this answer a try, this forum would be a very restful, peaceful (and perhaps a bit too quiet) place. ;) But SERIOUSLY, this IS the best answer. No one, really no one, can answer performance related questions better than you yourself, on your own PC, with your own specific and probably unique combination of hardware. Case closed, we can all go flying now. ;)

Affinity Mask caused severe blurries on my system until I deleted it.

Everything depends of your system IMHO, and nobody can reproduce any issue you may have, except yourself, that's why I think there are no universal rules. In my case, I have AM set to 1365 and HT set to ON. I also have FFTF set to 0.10, and call tell I don't have any blurries and nice and good fluidity of the sim (locked at 33 fps inside P3D), except in those places where you have to sacrifice some detail, like Seattle, NY and Northern California areas, for instance, to keep a good balance with the fps, and depending on the aircraft selected, of course.

For me is HT off and no AM on an i7 4790k. I have not done shift-z in a long time now. Feels and flys good.

So true.

One thing that can be smart to do is to change the affinity of other programs interacting with P3D. I have changed the affinity of TrackIR, Traffic Optimizer, FSGRW, SPAD (which has an affinity mask on as default) etc. to core 2 and/or 3 on my CPU. It gives a little more headroom for P3D on core 0. It might reduce stutters when these side programs are working hard.

I think a fast SSD is the key in curing blurries..

Since I got my M2 Samsung SSD, I have set the Frame locker to unlimited with no external limiter and I got almost no blurries. Also the texture loading is really fast.

 

My specs: i5 3570 @ 4.5Ghz GTX 970 DDR 3 1600 mhz

Can fiber time fraction cuase blurry textures. Now I have FIBER_FRAME_TIME_FRACTION=0.01

Yes. Default (when you have no entry in the cfg) is 0.33. The lower the number, the less time is spend on loading textures and hence the more blurries you can get. This lower setting is often used to gain performance but it comes at a cost. Funnily enough some people even add this entry and this number thinking it will prevent blurries... To prevent blurries you should enter a higher number but usually this introduces stutters. The best thing imho is to remove the entry altogether. In fact, do not add any performance tweaks to the cfg's at all!

I am out of ideas how to fix this. Maybe you could help please ? FFT is 0.01 - I've got HT off, Affinity mask off i7-3770k @4.5GHz and my P3d looks really bad.

It looks lovely close to the aircraft but horrible and flat far away. I'd appreciate any advice !

You're running almost the same hardware as me... the only time I see blurry textures is when I use photoreal, but if I'm using ftx global, its sharp. I'm not sure why using photoreal textures would cause blurries for me.

 

How can you tell if you have HT on or off, and is there a simple way to toggle it while in Windows?

Yes - task manager should show you the amount of threads in use. Would you mind sharing your P3d config ?
