"Pixeled" textures

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

 

Wow! What a bird!!!!! Well done PMDG! Guys, I just have one problem with it currently.... please see my images below.... Any idea what could be creating these? I have tried everything.... I would appreciate it if someone could shed some light on the matter. Thanx!

 

1. My Nvidia Inspector is fullblast to PMDG's recommendations.

2. I Do have the Latest Drivers Installer.

3. The settings in FSX is according to PMDG's recommendations.

It's amazing that PMDG got this to work at all in FSX..., sorry but this is really an area where P3D does "shine."

Well I have the exact same thing here in P3D ;-)

 

Using GTX970

On closer look of the posted pictures, it looks more like a moire pattern than "pixelation."

 

I had not noticed in several months of testing so I launched my UPS and I can see the moire pattern if I zoom in past 1.5x on LDC bezels, the panel looks about right and varying the lamp intensity obviously changes the pattern.  Worst case I don't see very much of it but there is some and I'm not sure there is a fix..., read more about it in Wikipedia.   I'm using a GTX980 and 4K 40-in TV, and I thought it looked pretty darn good, but my preference is just enough flood to turn the dark panels in to barely visible.  Night flying is usually done with all lamps very very low in real world.

Hmm, that is why I returned the Ifly 747, rainbow patterns around lighted objects when using the interior lights.

If this is a real problem I do hope it gets resolved because I love to fly at night and use a good lighting system.

Could someone post more close up pictures of the interior lighting so I can see what is happening here?

I didn't notice anything on the outside, but I have a similar issue with internals. This is in P3D V3.3.5.17625.

I have not, figured I'd go here first and see what we can figure out (or if PMDG might have a clue). I don't see this issue in neither the 737, 777 nor in any of the other planes I fly - and at first I thought it was a light I had set too low, but it appears not.

It's in the 737 as well.... it's how they do their dynamic lights.

 

I have difficulty believing that someone at PMDG sits there, and say "YES! Let's add these little dots to the textures that it looks annoying" because inevitably that is what you are saying now, right? Nah ;) I don't think so....

Agree with you... just didn't know what you called it. Thanx mate :) 

 

I checked out various Nvidia Inspector settings.... played with the zoom levels. (All things I got from previous forum posts) . But to no avail.... Seems that I will have to start and try to get along with my new friend, "Moire" :P 

 

Have a good weekend Queen Flyers!

Bothersome why PMDG has not responded to this thread as they have to some of the other threads here. I also wonder why they did the lighting this way - maybe to help with fps or vas? Other devs seem to get the variable lighting correct though. 

 

I wish PMDG had a return policy like some other devs,,even P3D has a return policy. That way I could see this in person rather than spending 140 bucks to find out it is something that really bothers me.

Question; is it as bad as this (screenshot of Ifly 747 rainbow texture corruption)

This is why I returned the Ifly 747.

I have this on the 777 (FSX:SE) as well. Just a thought, could it be related to the DX10 fixer? I run DX10.

I can plainly see the problem but it is not as bad as the screenshots of the Ifly 747 I posted in this thread. 

 

It is a problem that there is nothing from PMDG regarding this thread and I want to know the reason for it and if it can be fixed before I give them my 140 bucks. I could fix the Ifly 747 because it was in the light textures but this problem looks completely different.

Still daytime, but much more severe. No clue what this is, but since PMDG aren't responding here, I'll put up a ticket on their support portal just in case they prefer handling it there.

I am thinking, after watching a new video, that this is not a PMDG problem. In this video he shows closeup day and night with lights of the cockpit and in high def and I could not see any texture problems or artifacts. 

 

I wonder why it is happening to some users and not others? A video driver, video settings, almost anything related to video or graphic input could be the culprit here. 

 

See this video showing day and night close up of cockpit
