Getting radial ground shadow around aircraft

Recommended Posts

I just updated to 4.1, Latest PTA and I use Envtex. Before 4.1 I never had what looks like a circular ground shadow around the aircraft in exterior view. As I move around the aircraft I see the shadow move around the ground. Almost like if a spot light was shining down on top of the aircraft towards the ground. I have attached a pic that shows the edge of the shadow which moves as I pan around. Its not cloud shadows. Not sure if its a PTA or Envtex issue. Didn't have this before upgrading. I am using the latest ini file that Matt provided with PTA 2.60. Any suggestions would be helpful.

I think it has to do with your shadows quality settings in P3D, try turning it up.

Try increasing the shadow draw distance and see if it makes a difference.

Draw distance and quality seems to help some. I was on Medium but adjusted both to high for now.
