PTA2 for P3Dv4 : Custom Presets thread

Yes I did. More then once actually :) How are your settings when flying at dawn/dusk, since we have similar HW. 
I'm not sure if my 4k 30hz monitor is the culprit.. but the 1080Ti should cope with it I guess. ASCA Clouds and Envtex are set to DXT (512 - 1024) When ever I have clouds and additionally the sun or the moon is in sight, my frames are dropping to below 20 :( 
Btw. my AA settings are at 8xMSAA

As you can see in my vids I have a triple view setup connected to a 1080 Ti.

I use 32 bit clouds + OC active in ASP4.

Dawn/Dusk are the same settings as daytime. And I use photoscenery + Nightenvironment.

I have a 6 core 5820K running at 4.3-4.4-4.3-4.3-4.3-4.3 GHz.

My AA settings are 8x SSAA.

regards, Gerard

Those clouds look normal. The darker clouds container precipitation. 

Also remember that we are in november so less light on them.

Improved version : when it gest darker the light colors get more saturated, depending on time of the day ( 24h )

Is anyone else having issues with some instruments not being lit up at night in the NGX with Gerard's preset? I like the preset, started using it yesterday, flap indicator is one of them that is entirely dark for me, I can see it just fine when the dome light is on.

Let me look into this .

I do mot have a VC so I have to try with the FSX default 737 in P3D.

Gsalden, Hi, how can I soften sky color between shades of blue, I mean from dark blue to light blue
I am using your PTA


777_ACA_TIJ.png

 

That depends on the skyset you are using. 

Did you try with my Visibility setting of 125 NM ?

In the preset description you can find my preferred settings.

regards, Gerard

Gerard,

Thanks again for another magnificent Preset, I've only been using your version 4, so am looking forward to what V5 brings.

I don't know how you can improve on perfection?

I just downloaded and am using the Terra Emergence Project, in conjunction with your PTA preset 4 it has the WOW factor, cant wait to try Preset V5.

Thanks in Anticipation.
