REALIST ROADS IN FSX? Look Again!

Recommended Posts

Roads are not great in your shot, but what I find even more disturbing is the lack of scale-consistency between the textures. It appears the "shopping mall + parking" texture is way too smal compared to the "residential neighbour" texture, or the reverse.This spoils down the advantage of XY mm per pixel precision and I've never really noticed this in FSX before.

It's also a problem in FS9 when using something like UT USA and is the reason I like to switch those roads off.

Don't know if there would be a solution for that.Currently..., Data is taken from a database and then a grey paint is smeared on the data points. Even though the data points maybe accurate, its ugly.When I was using Flight1 Roads (later to become Ultimate terrain), it was very very nice at night. Night lighting was accurate... but during day time, it was ugly.Wish some genius would come up with a good solution.Manny

>Exactly where did you take that image shot?Somewhere in the west cost of Italy. I may provide the correct name of the location later.dito

If you press "A" three times (I believe) from the exact position of your screenshot, it will switch to an areal view like in my screenshot.dito

Your screenshot is not default FSX, is it? That looks like doctored scenery.RhettAMD 3700+ (@2310 mhz), eVGA 7800GT 256 (Guru3D 93.71), ASUS A8N-E, PC Power 510 SLI, 2 GB Corsair XMS 2.5-3-3-8 (1T), WD 250 gig 7200 rpm SATA2, CoolerMaster Praetorian case

It's peobably a function of resolution: with FS9 4.8m resolution misalingment between the vector roads and background urban grid isn't so obvious. Step it up to 1.2m in FSX, and now it is more clear.scott s..
