    I'm that one musician that flies planes and stuff.
  1. @Sanctus Is that only xVision? Which preset?

    Screen Tearing in X-plane 11

    Use nvidia inspector and change the vsync mode from adaptive to standard. That'll fix it. I'm sing 1/2 refresh rate as well.
  3. Try this setting: set("sim/private/controls/planet/kill_hi", 0)
  4. @frontendrob I really love what you've done with Ventura Sky. I'm back to default clouds and got your script working by disabling a few lines in your code. Skymaxx hasn't been that very convincing to me so far. One thing that had annoyed the living daylights out of me was the white out in cloud effect when going through cloud layers. I managed to fix it with a script I wrote and thought it would be useful to share here (I might put it on the .org as well). I got inspiration from the algorithm in RTH and improved upon it. It essentially disables the effect when passing through clouds and re-enables it when out to allow visibility changes to happen. --Only works when aircraft is in flight. Does not work in free camera mode.function cld_whiteout() --Cloud offset from aircraft cld_offset = 0 --Get current cloud heights and coverages cb0=get("sim/weather/cloud_base_msl_m[0]") cb1=get("sim/weather/cloud_base_msl_m[1]") cb2=get("sim/weather/cloud_base_msl_m[2]") ct0=get("sim/weather/cloud_tops_msl_m[0]") ct1=get("sim/weather/cloud_tops_msl_m[1]") ct2=get("sim/weather/cloud_tops_msl_m[2]") cc0=get("sim/weather/cloud_coverage[0]") cc1=get("sim/weather/cloud_coverage[1]") cc2=get("sim/weather/cloud_coverage[2]") --Get current aircraft altitude in meters alt=get("sim/flightmodel/position/elevation") --Disable white out flag when aircraft enters clouds if (alt >= (cb0-cld_offset)) and (alt <= (ct0+cld_offset)) and cc0 ~= 0 then wo_flag = 0 set("sim/private/controls/skyc/white_out_in_clouds", wo_flag) elseif (alt >= (cb1-cld_offset)) and (alt <= (ct1+cld_offset)) and cc0 ~= 0 then wo_flag = 0 set("sim/private/controls/skyc/white_out_in_clouds", wo_flag) elseif (alt >= (cb2-cld_offset)) and (alt <= (ct2+cld_offset)) and cc0 ~= 0 then wo_flag = 0 set("sim/private/controls/skyc/white_out_in_clouds", wo_flag) else --Enable white out flag when aircraft not in clouds to allow visibility changes wo_flag = 1 set("sim/private/controls/skyc/white_out_in_clouds", wo_flag) end enddo_often("cld_whiteout()") It only works when the aircraft is in flight, so the effect is still there if you change to free camera mode (if there's a dataref for altitude in free camera mode I could fix it). Just copy and paste the code as save as a .lua file.

    Sun in Low Visibility

    Great! Looking forward to it :smile:.
  7. Hi Steve, Is there a possibility that the sun can be hidden in low visibility from the shaders? This is what happens currently in low visibility.
  8. Got these errors: "Failed to load MYNN_RAMP_LIGHTS.dds", "Failed to load MYNN_SHADOWSA.dds" and "MAT.2_COLOR.dds". Renaming the 1st two fixes the problem. I can't seem to find that last texture however. I will post this information in the developer's forum. Thanks for the help Steve! Very much appreciated!
  9. I purchased Aerosoft's MYNN earlier today, but I notice there's an issue with the lights. There are visible squares underneath the light poles around the airport. This does not happen in DX9. The markings on the apron also have a transparency issue. The options available from the fixer don't seem to fix it. Here are a few screenshots of the issue:

    How Long Have You Been Using MSFS?

    Since MSFS 3.0, on a Pentium MMX processor @ 233MHZ with 32MB of RAM and 1GB of storage, 1995. I was 5 years old and it was the first computer I saw and used. I'd never forget how I was blown away the first time I saw my dad load it. I later got FS 98 as a gift and then the whole hobby started .

    You can find it here. It's the second link on that page, "HDEv2 Sky Colors Converted for FSX".

    Thanks! Using HDEv2 (converted ones for fsx) for sky textures. Using enb for hdr (bloom effect disabled in enb), nothing fancy.
