Water Texture Issue

Recommended Posts

So as you can see in this screenshot: http://prntscr.com/j4xfo8 some of my water will load perfectly, and other sections of water will just be black. 

Any ideas?


Thanks!

Looks like a rendering issue.  If you put your sim on pause, will the black eventually go away?  It means a setting(s) is too high and your system is struggling to render the water immediately.

If I am not completely wrong, this can happen if you have the option "frozen surfaces" ticked in FTX Vector...

I have the same issue for some time now and sort of gave up on this. Frozen surfaces is not ticked, and it does not happen randomly, but always in the same places.

I am sure it´s related to ORBX sceneries in some way, but I will not fly without. If anyone has found a solution here, I would be happy, too.

Regards,

Heavy

Have you posted this in the Orbx forum?

I've seen the frozen surface option cause this, not sure what else can but they would certainly know.

If it is not related to the "frozen surface" option, I would start off with deleting the shaders and see if this helps? Do you guys mabye use a custom PTA or Envshade preset?

I've seen lots of chatter on such things but I don't use any PTA or shaders.... don't understand the problem they are supposedly fixing.  What has Orbx offered as help?

I have the exact issue.   It only occurred after I installed Orbx NA airport pack. 

Prior to that, all water texture loading was fine, so it (surely?) cannot be a resources issue.  Those airports use a miniscule amount of system resources vs. a large fully rendered airport.

If you do not use any modified shaders, it would still be a good idea to delete those shaders once to see if it helps...

I managed to resolve the issue now. I had read somewhere there might be issues/crashes with P3d and ORBX scenery when water details are set to Ultra and it was recommended to set them to high. It appears, that High setting caused the texture problems on my side. After I changed the details back to Ultra a few days ago, all textures have loaded correctly ever since. Something, that deleting shaders or changing the FTX Global setting for iced lakes could not repair. So at least for me it was not directly caused by ORBX, but due to water details changed at the same time.  

I could not find the topic regarding ultra details causing issues and I am not sure, if this was an issue with v3 or v4... but so far, I have not encountered any strange behaviour again.

Maybe this could help...?
