I thought this wasn't an issue in P3D?

Recommended Posts

Recent convert from FSX.  One thing that drove me mad in FSX was the tops of clouds flickering/intersecting with the tops of mountains.  I was always under the impression P3D used volumetric clouds where as FSX didn't.  Anyway I'm currently flying up the west cost towards Fellows VOR and the clouds are flickering like mad over the top of mountains??

Is this fixable or just how it is?  I use ASP4 with ASCA if that's any use.

Thanks

In ASP4 under 'Cloud options' you will find a 'low cloud offset'.  This helps reducing that effect.

I don't think I've ever seen this in P3D...

yep I saw it with my own eyes, although unlike FSX the flickering got better or worse depending on the viewing angle of the ezdok camera.  I was in an outside view holding middle mouse to pan.  I changed the low cloud offset setting in ASP4 but this didn't make that much difference either.

I have the same problem , actually in a pretty neat installation, just P3Dv4, active sky v4, Malaga aerosoft v4 and the 737 of course v4, that's all, and guys, is like buying a new upgraded computer, if you have p3dv4 you know what I'm talking about, so easy to adjust for unthinkable results just a couple of months ago...

...  this mouse flickering... that I can see has been with PMDG for ages (I recall it well back in the times of fs9, beginning of fsx... I am to believe there was a fix, not sure, but today I join you guys in asking PMDG for a bit of advice on this.

Cheers
