any way to tell which dsf files are currently loaded?

Recommended Posts

Are there any datarefs or other ways to make XP tell you which dsf files are currently loaded and, more importantly, when it loads a new one as I fly?

Im currently convinced that a bug I filed a while back about environment lighting pop may be tied to XP switching dsf files.  The pop only occurs at well defined longitude lines and I read in the knowledge base that XP actually treats the world as flat (2D) as you fly so I wonder if XP only updates lighting when it loads a new dsf and compares the new angle of the new 2d pair of  dsf files against the sun position and therby produces an abrupt change in lighting.

 

any thoughts?

Lines containing "I/SCN: DSF load time:" will be written to the log.txt after each DSF has finished loading.

Thank you very much.  I don't think I would have noticed that.

With your help I have run three tests and the change in lighting does indeed occur when the sim loads dsf files when headed east or west.  Ill run another test or two but Im confident Im on the right track and I also think it will be fixed in the not too distant future.
