  1. @Farlis Thank you! All I had to do was switch off live weather and delete snow to reveal beautiful coasts and remove my 'visually jarring' scenery. Your time taken to provide a solution and explanation are appreciated.
  2. To illustrate my perceived visual issue with the Valdez region, here is a screenshot of the intersection of sea ice with coastline. This reminds me of the old vector coastlines in FSX. Does anyone else see this?
  3. No. Your comment described the term 'visually jarring' as hyperbole (the comment you deleted). I was wondering how two simple words could be construed as hyperbole. Answering a question with something unrelated is not a descriptive answer. I would also assert that my description of Bobk8's comment was a literal interpretation and therefore devoid of hyperbole. If you don't like the vocabulary someone uses then don't comment. This thread was about the rendition of Valdez and it has been derailed by needless mockery. The use of two words 'visually jarring' has elicited 10 posts without any useful input. It would have at least been useful to comment on the nature of the scenery, even if it was to articulately disagree.
  4. @btacon You didn't answer the question.
  5. Seriously? Can you explain how a simple English term is considered hyperbole?
  6. @Nemo If the incorrect snow coverage is due to Meteoblue, does using a 3rd party weather add-on remove snow from around Valdez? Just wondering if Rex Weather Force would visually improve the area.
  7. Aspiring to induce serious medical conditions is 'humour' - I'll note for further reference. How would you describe the area around Valdez?
  8. @Bobsk8 I usually enjoy your humorous interventions, but I don't see the point you're trying to make. Is it simply mockery for someone using the term 'visually jarring'. I was expressing my reaction to the depiction of sea ice around the Valdez sound. If you disagree then that's fine. What purpose does your mockery serve?
  9. weathercams.faa.gov shows the ground around Valdez as snow-free and no sea ice. There appears to be some scattered snow remaining on the mountain tops. The depiction of sea ice around the area is unrealistic and visually jarring (as is the progression from ground snow to grass/trees). I was hoping for an airport and surroundings that at least resembled the P3D OrbX PAVD, but the MSFS version was disappointing in comparison. Even though it was free upgrade, I don't think I'll be using it much.
  10. LOL - that would be easier!!!
  11. There might be a solution for getting the textures of the v5 aircraft. The texture files were always separate from the models sold on web stores, so had to be downloaded from the SSW web site (which no longer provides the links). The Wayback Machine has an archive (dated 30-10-2020) of the SSW web pages with links to Dropbox files that appear to contain exe files for installing the textures. I don't think I'm allowed to post the links here, but search on Wayback Machine for the SSW web site. The first one I found was SSW.FRF104G-Installer-P3Dv5-TEXTURES-1.0.0.exe (which superficially seems legit). I'm not at home so can't download to verify. Maybe someone can download in a VM and scan to check the contents (or is that paranoid)?
  12. LM's aim is fairly simple - stability for their commercial customers (the one's that pay >$100K for a training platform).
  13. Note that the version of EnvShade does not appear to work with the new 5.2 hotfix. Hopefully an update will appear soon.
  14. Out of curiosity I installed the Milviz C310R into V5. Everything appears to work, e.g., gauges and autopilot etc. The only apparent problem is RealLight and TrueGlass. Since these are both implementations of software by TFDi, it's unclear why they haven't been updated (Aerosoft did it relatively quickly for the Airbus A330). The textures presumably won't change, so is it only the shaders (e.g., RealLight.hlsl), that need modified? There might be something more fundamental missing (but not obvious to me), but now really wondering what is happening with Milviz and product support.
