Black water...

Recommended Posts

It doesn't matter which sim I am using, P3D or FSX or which scenery I am flying over, default or Orbx, I always seem to get patches of black water over lakes, seacoasts, and even black creeks.  They're are not severe but they are annoying.  Is there something I can do with my settings to eliminate them?

Have not heard of or seen this before, have you tried changing your water settings to a higher or lower value?  Also, are you using the graphics options in your sim, or for your video card?  In my case, if there is an overlap in my sim against my graphics card, I use the sim to adjust graphics options.  For P3D and Xplane.  On my old system, which only ran FS9 and FSX, I used the Nvidia settings to override the sims graphic options.

In keeping with the theme of your post, lol:

Black patches on terrain is a missing texture issue, usually a missing or corrupt texture or a texture tile that fails to load.  If the black patch is eventually filled with the correct texture, then it is your computer that cannot process and load the textures fast enough to keep up with the demands placed upon it.  If it is slow loading textures, turn down the water effects setting in FSX.
