Volumetric clouds cannot block the terrain in some view

Recommended Posts

This is a very serious P3D V5.2 bug. I took the approach of uninstalling and updating the client, content, and scenery from 5.1HF1 to 5.2 and SDK.

I have reported it to Prepar3D , but no feedback.

the Volumetric Clouds hide some terrain in some viewing angles.

if any good ways to fix it , i will tell there .

I noticed that too, nice that you reported it to Lockheed Martin. There is another bug similar to this - sun's lens flare ignores terrain behind, so you can see the sun shining even when there is a mountain blocking the sun.

That really does not look good at all.

I have seen BiologicalNanobot’s thread too at the LM forum. His issue is also a serious one.

Hopefully one of the beta testers had a workaround and LM will release a HF for this.

I now will wait with updating till more is announced about this ….

Thanks for posting this very clear issue. I will report this to the devs too. This looks like a view clipping issue somehow. 

Tomorrow morning I will contact them.

As others have said, turning volumetric clouds off seems to improve the look..

I had it on Low, now on Off, and like it better.

Our goals is to make ea the most favorable option by most of the users in terms of visuals and performance. We want EA getting better then EA off.

Thanks a lot - knowing you all are working hard to inform LM about issues really restores my hope.

Did a quick test on a client only update. I see this, to a lesser extent, only at LOWS. Everywhere else I quickly tried, LOWI, LSGG, KSBA, KGPI, KBZN are not effected on my system fwiw...

If is isolated on few places than not bad, could be corrected in next update...
