Question about light reflection on Aircraft en P3Dv4

Recommended Posts

Hi every on,

I have seen in my P3D v4, in the night that when the aircraft stay in gate så er there light reflection from the airport light on the aircraft! ???

I didn't have a RTX 2080 or a RTX Titan in my pc, I have: GTX 1080 Aero oc 8GB 12 Direct, i5-7600k, 1x Samsung 970 Evo plus M.2 SSD 2TB.

shouldn't this be impossible ???

 

take a look at the picture and see what I mean. The nose on the aircraft is light and the rest of the plane gets dark.

No, you have DL enabled on a DL supported airport, then it's normal with a nice PBR enabled material on the aircraft ... this has been around for a long time, no special hardware is needed.

Cheers, Rob.

Nothing to do with RTX cards, Any card can support DL.

Interesting to read a topic questioning why a full functioning simulator is working. Usually, it is the other way around.🙂
