8bit looking textures at night

Recommended Posts

I have Tomato Shade installed and I have also removed all shaders (with and without tomato), I have even removed the shader folders and cfg then did a repair of the client.  Nothing seems to work???  I have tried numerous drivers for my nvidia card to no avail.

Please assist if you can...

Addons: Active Sky for v4, ASCA, Rex Skyforce 3D

Specs:
i7 8700K @4.7 ghz
16GB DDR4 Ram
Nvidia GTX 1080
Running at 3480x2460

Hi Folks,

Ditto on mine - I’m running ENVSHADE - I started looking at my night flying a couple weeks ago in anticipation of getting back into it - which I haven’t done in a while - just as Gary mentioned - running 4.3 one of the latest Nvidia drivers - not using NI... It was a mess - sky banded - extremely blocky lens flare - 8 bit color pallet... No solution yet either - daylight is fine...

Regards,

Scott

Ok, you uninstalled Tomatoshade? if so tried a content repair, delete your local shaders again and see if that repairs the problem.

I had exactly the same problem. It was killing the night flying immersion due to sky banding, weird cloud colours etc.

At the time I suspected one of my various texture changing add-ons (and I still do) and tried to revert back to the standard textures doing an uninstall and reinstall of content.msi . Unfortunately this caused a number of problems which I was unable to fix without a full uninstall and reinstall of Prepar3D V4.3 .

The good news is that this totally solved my night flying problems with no more sky banding, “8 bit” cloud colours, lights blooming etc. Night flying is very enjoyable again now.

I’ve yet to reinstall all my add-ons (especially the way too many 3rd party airports I own) and won’t be re-installing any texture changing programs or shader changing programs until I’m 100% confident I can restore the orginal textures (I’ve found relying on the so called backup done by these programs before they are changed are not working). It’s a pity that add-on airports aren’t as easy to install as they from Orbx which is why I will be not buying any airports in future that don’t come with some form of updater.

I posted awhile back asking for advice on what needs to be backed up to achieve this but never got a reply unfortunately.

Will this remove my addons?

One common gotcha, however--if you use any ORBX scenery other than FTX Global, you need to run FTX Central once after the content repair to re-write the ORBX changes to the autogen config.

Ok I may just do a complete reinstall, I just hate having to redownload all the orbx stuff......I wish I didn't have to.

Interesting Bloom value ... what happens if you increase that to 0.80?

Cheers, Rob.

Well I did a complete reinstall, and STILL HAVE THE PROBLEM....

This has to be hardware or something outside the sim?

Re-install will not clean your Prepard3d.cfg, so make a backup of this file and delete it to see what happens.

Hi Folks,

Wow - that doesn't bode well for me...

I'm in the middle of a new build at the moment - so at least I'll be starting again with a clean slate in the very near future...

Regards,

Scott
