Aircraft self cast shadow quality

Recommended Posts

Hello,

does someone know how to improve the shadow quality of the shadows that the aircraft casta on itself?

The normal shadows are very blurry.

Thank you!

Best regards Andreas

I made a video some time ago on how to improve shadow quality beyond UI values.  You'll want to experiment with these values in your Prepar3d.cfg:

OPAQUE_SHADOW_TEXTURE_SIZE=8192     (default is 2048 I think)

TRANSLUCENT_SHADOW_TEXTURE_SIZE=2048  (default is 512 I think)

WARNING: your FPS WILL drop and VRAM usage will increase.

Cheers, Rob.

I use the Opaque shadow at 4096 which nicely sharpens shadows in the VC with no noticeable performance hit.  I tried messing with the Translucent shadow setting and it completely destroyed FPS.  I am not sure what that setting even does but that is the one to be careful with!
