Patchwork look of low lying cloud cover

Recommended Posts

Guest bernknow

Hi,When there is a thin layer of low lying cloud cover in my FS9 (overcast) Instead of having a solid cover, I instead find a strange and unreaistic patchwork effect (see attached image) and the patches keep jumping around, which is even more off-putting. Another unrealisitic thing is the far too defined edges to it where it flows into valleys etc.Can anyone tell me what causes it and how to stop it happening?regards,Bernard.

Hi,The sharp edges when touching ground scenery is a cloud texture issue. On fix is to use ActiveSkyGraphics, part of ASv6.Hope this helps,Jimhttp://www.hifisim.com/Active Sky V6 Development Team Active Sky V6 Proud SupporterHiFi Beta TeamRadar Contact Supporter: http://www.jdtllc.com/AirSource Member: http://www.air-source.us/FSEconomy Member:http://dot.kelder.net:8080/fseconomy/

Bernard: Sure no expert, but from what I see in your pic it looks likea Video card problem. I've never had anything that looked like that since I replacedmy Nvidia FX5200 with an ATI 9600xt. Could be drivers as well. Regards Denny

Hi Jim,Do you think that ActiveSkyGraphics would cure the patchwork quilt effect too?-------------------------------------------------------Hi Denny,I does so happen that my video card is an Nvidia 5200, which is something of a coincidence - So maybe I will have to start saving for a new one :-(Thanks to both of you from Bernard.

Hi,No, as stated, that looks to be a video card/driver problem. Suggest a reinstall of your card drivers.Hope this helps,Jimhttp://www.hifisim.com/Active Sky V6 Development Team Active Sky V6 Proud SupporterHiFi Beta TeamRadar Contact Supporter: http://www.jdtllc.com/AirSource Member: http://www.air-source.us/FSEconomy Member:http://dot.kelder.net:8080/fseconomy/
