Fly Tampa EHAM (Amsterdam Schiphol) released

Recommended Posts

It's mostly the smaller objects...light poles, etc.  I'm running 3.3 (I think you are as well).  It's like there's z-fighting or something...textures can't decide which ones are in front.

Hi Gregg,

 

Some time ago found a solution for some kind of flashing similar to yours, and is related to the clipping mode of cameras in 'cameras.cfg'. I quote:

 

since you have the flickering issue in specific view modes (e.g. external view) only, one thing you could try is the following:

- In the directory [user]\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\FSX look for the file Cameras.CFG

- Make a backup of this file

- Within the file, search for the word "Clipmode" in the camera section for external view

- If the corresponding line reads "Clipmode=Minimal" change it to "Clipmode=Normal"

- Save the file, restart FSX, and see if your flickering issue has gone - good luck!

 

Regards

Pretty obvious that v3.3.5 is the most stable and VAS-reliable version of P3D ever made. I'm killing myself every day for not keeping 3.3.5 installers and I still appreciate if someone guide me (whether it's official or not) how to get them.

 

I wasn't in any hurry to upgrade from v3.3.5 to v3.4, but as soon as I became aware of those VAS issues with the latest version, the decision was made for me.

would resizing ai aircraft textures from 2084 to 1024 resolution help with the vas usage?

Someone correct me if I'm wrong but if you set max texture size to 1024 that is what will be loaded and even if you don't want to stay at 1024 permanently that would at least be an easy way to find out if a lower texture size would fix your VAS issues.

 

I have had it set to 1024 for as long as I can remember I nearly never have any VAS issues despite using lots of add-ons such as all the FTX Global products, the NGX, FS Global mesh, AS16 etc etc.

I don't believe there's a whole lot of difference in 1024 and 2048 but I run a 4K monitor

Although I'm now using a pair of Oculus Rift VR glasses I've been using a 48" 4K display up until now and I always kept TML at 1024 and just like you never noticed any real difference vs a higher setting.

 

At least not a difference that would be worth potential VAS issues...

Thanks for the tip.  Mine was in the VC but it's worth a try.

Best Schiphol scenery I have ever seen, with best performance too. Today with ASN weather there was a very thin fog groundlayer. Houses, buildings and trees were sticking out of this layer. I was amazed to see this on a picture during the review of todays weather in the evening news/weather forecast.

Yesterday, flight from EDDM to EHAM, 2 times, 2 OOMs...

 

Seems like I need to tweak around again.
