Land Bars across waterways

Recommended Posts

I have noticed a rather annoying number of "land bars" (for want of a better term) at coastal waterway locations. These are strips of land that cross inlets and harbours from one side to the other (effectively creating a dam of sorts), and they look ridiculous. I assume that Asobo have been informed about this issue?

Secondly, I have also noticed a handful of airports (including payware) that have misaligned runway centreline markings. This one is something that annoys me a lot, since I cannot avoid seeing them if I want to use the airport.

Anyone else have some classics that they would like to share? :smile:

You and I, both.

How long have they been an issue, and have Asobo been informed?

I'm sure ASOBO are well aware but MS2024 is top of their priority list now.

These have been around since the release...I assume you mean the shifting edges that occur in waters like near shoreline and rivers.

It's very bad - hopefully resolved in 2024.

No, I mean narrow bars of land that stretch across some river mouths and estuaries/harbours. Have a look at the top end of Southampton Water in southern England (where it splits into two sections). There are "land bars" right across both sections. Totally ridiculous, and a major immersion killer. There is also one across the mouth of the river Beauly in Scotland where it enters the Beauly Firth (west of Inverness), but there are many more.

A screenshot would explain what you are seeing ??

Go to 46:35 in the video below. You will see the two "land bars" stretching across the water at Southampton. This video is from three years ago, so Asobo have clearly been working hard to resolve the problem :rolleyes: To be honest, they look even wider on my PC in 2024 than they do here.

At 46:35, the thing with the "points" sticking up looks like a photogrammetry bridge or pier to me (in other words, not an actual modelled bridge or pier).   Although I will say that I am totally unfamilar with that area and do not know if there's supposed to be a bridge or pier there or not.  The OTHER "slivers" of land you see at 46:35 are the tearing that MSFS has had for a long time.  Some areas have it, some do not.

Whatever they are, they need to be sorted out. They are all over the place. I do not have photogrammetry active, so anything of that nature in the video is not part of my problem.

Ok, so the problem is the LOD/mesh tearing.  As I said, I don't know of anything that can be done at this time.

I'm pretty sure that is one of the things to be fixed with the new version (2024).

To be honest, it does not look like mesh tearing to me. It looks more like a section of land, as there are sometimes trees on it!
