[Answered] Wierd wake effect problem on older boats

Recommended Posts

OK Simbol, here's one for you to chew on...😀

I have a 4K screen, so I applied the 4K configuration.

After a day of being very happy with your prof. version I discovered a problem that after a day of sleuthing I tracked down to the 4K setting.

On several of the older boats (Tongass Fjords, and some of the RTMM scenery boats) the wakes are really screwed up by the 4K setting.

After I reverted back to the P3D default configuration they were back to normal.

I don't even want to talk about how long it took me to figure this out, but suffice to say I was some what shorter of hair...

It means they have declared their wake effects as LIGHTS. Also check if their category is boat and no airplanes, have seem that before.

Not much I can do to help here.. Since P3D 4.5 all effects declared as lights will be treated differently by the GPU card. What my setting does is take advantage of this and use it to scale lights more close to real world operations.

If this really bothers you, you can use AILRP with the default P3D scaling algorithms. That is why the setting is there for.
