VC Gauge Visual Quality

Recommended Posts

Hi, I originally had my VC gauges on their own planar polygons plus a small number of gauges grouped onto their own planar. I ended up with a large number of gauge planar polygons, and hence a lot of Vcockpit windows in the panel.cfg file. The performance was poor (not surprisingly) but I thought I would give it a try as the gauge visual quality would be good. To improve dynamic performance, I joined the planar polygons together so I ended up with one Vcockpit window, and everything is smooth in operaration. However, the gauges have become a bit blocky. I used sizes as follows[Vcockpit01]Background_color=10,10,10size_mm=1024,1024visible=0pixel_size=1024,1024texture=$VCjoined1I tried [Vcockpit01]Background_color=10,10,10size_mm=2048,2048visible=0pixel_size=2048,2048texture=$VCjoined1FS2004 must recognise this size increase as the gauges required repositioning, but the gauge visual quality did not improve. Can anyone suggest a way round this problem, and is 1024 the maximum size FS2004 can handle?Thanks,Nick.

The limit is 1024x1024. I would suggest that you use two VcockpitXX entries. Perhaps you could reserve the 1024x1024 for the gauges that need the most resolution, and make the 2nd Vcockpit window 512x512...
