    v4.3 brightness

    Great to hear you're getting good results with PTA (and my preset!). If you'd like to have a higher res version of that DC-6 for your desktop, just shout and I'll upload it somewhere. I must admit the DC-6 is a stunning looking aircraft - and I've always been a sucker for the T.E.A.L. liveries. Adam.
  2. There seems to have been a flurry of CP updates just lately - and one of them appears to have screwed the keyboard input for *exterior* zoom. Interior zoom works fine, but in external view it seems inoperable. I have my X-52 Pro mapped to give CTR-7 and CTRL-8 for zooming (as opposed to the more regular "+" and "-"). Adam. UPDATE: Whatever it was seems to have cleared itself. All back to normal again! Weird!!!
  3. Just the bloom to zero. You'll still need the Brightness/Saturation values. More info here: https://www.nzfsim.org/index.php?dsp=PTA Adam.
  4. Yes. There are a few settings in PTA that specifically require it to be enabled. I'm not a great fan of HDR - particularly the "bloom" function, so most of my presets have it set to a bare minimum (or set to zero). Adam.
  5. Glenn ... you might need to upload a screenshot or two. Here's what my Milviz Beaver looks like (ignore the pale blue circles over the switches - I got them wrong anyway!) ... Instrument lights only: Instruments + cabin: Instruments+map: Instruments+map+cabin: They all look OK to me ... Adam.
  6. We're talking about lights inside the cockpit - and not the external (nav) lights, yes? Is this during the day and night as well? I have the MV Beaver, so will take a look. Adam.

    v4.3 brightness

    Hmmmm ... not sure if it changed *that* much ... but I must admit it took me a while to get rid of bleached out clouds whilst still retaining decent aircraft and terrain lighting. I don't use HDR *bloom* at all for that reason. Even changing the HDR brightness one or two points has quite a significant effect, but it always has been sensitive, IMHO. Try my 262_01 preset: https://www.nzfsim.org/index.php?dsp=PTA ... and see if that helps. Adam.

    Ground textures gets more blurry the further I fly

    I wish it were as simple as that! I've done the AM dance a few times - and always ended up reverting back to *no AM*. The impression I have from all my research and experimentation is that it's often more to do with whatever else you may be running at the same time as P3D (like ActiveSky, loading of scenery etc.). Throwing all the processing power at the main P3D application may cause bottlenecks with other processes (even disk access) which then impact P3D anyway. IMHO, this explains why we have such a variation in results for what may appear to be at first sight just a "simple" tweak. Adam.

    For me, I think the main thing was to change from an "Unlimited" TFR to 30 (a multiple of my 60Hz monitor), then enabling VSync and triple buffering. I left FFTF well alone (defaults to 0.33 I think).

    I too have had terrible problems with the new AS Airbus. I think it's way more resource hungry than any other add-on in my hangar - and that includes all the full-blown PMDG aircraft (which work beautifully). I found that I could successfully get rid of the blurries (using the info in this thread) but the Airbus autopilot often loses sync and the aircraft becomes unflyable. There are all sorts of theories and explanations (in other topics), but my own personal view is that the A318/319 is in dire need of some code optimisation.

    I don't use it for general flying. I only use it (at 4x) for taking screenshots - giving me a nice large image that scales down well in Photoshop, as its interpolation routines are good. So ... I get good performance while stooging around, but can still capture great looking shots (in pause mode) then use Chaseplane to compose.

    Well blow me down!!! Yes - I could set up all sorts of wacky parameters (but I had to disable DSR first). Needless to say, my monitor didn't like anything but its default. All very interesting all the same!

    Thanks, Michael! I've learned something today 🙂

    Thanks! I have an LCD, so don't get that refresh rate. I just wondered if I was missing some black magic!

    Good to hear that it's not just me then! I also struggle with a couple of the later FTX sceneries - namely Northern & Southern Germany. They're both (unavoidably) very object heavy, so I have to tweak things down a little.
