Too small v2 value probably. Have you placed the object directly from GMax or using an API? By default the v2 should be correct.

It is a value in the RefPoint that indicates the radius of the object.Here is an example of the RefPoint command as GMax makes it in BGLC:[tt]SCALE_AGL OBJECT_0_RETURN, 10000, 338, 131072, 00043D426h, 038E4h, 0E38E38E3h, 08E39h, 0, 0[/tt]In this case the v2 value is 338. Maybe you can check the value your scenery has there. It should be the radius of a circle where your entire object fits in.

I too have had this happen, the way I get around it (for FS2004 that is) is to go into the Display settings, under Hardware, there is a check box for "Render to Texture"... UNCHECK this box. Works for me, with no other noticeable side effects. Give it a try, you can always go back and "check" the box if it doesn't work.CheersAlun

Humm, that is interesting. I wouldn't know how that option should have anything to do with this :). Christian, I would be interested to hear if this tip helped you.
