Thanks - looks great!
That's the River Yealm beneath you, and the village just ahead and to the left is Wembury. Heybrook Bay is the next village towards Plymouth. The island on the left is the Great Mewstone.
Thank you for your reply. I'll try it out this evening.
To disable the default Europe images, I'll move the appropriate folders from scenery\images\ and store them safely somewhere.
Hats off to you for creating this scenery!
I'm keen to fly over South West England with hi-resolution photo scenery in the awesome simulator Aerofly FS 4
I have a couple of questions. I'd be grateful if someone could answer them. Apologies if this information is available, but I haven't been able to find it.
SOUTH WEST ENGLAND PART 1.zip
SOUTH WEST ENGLAND PART 2.zip
which are in:
addons/scenery/... [FS2] .../eu_gb (great britain) South West + East England all Parts by IZ0JUB 2019
I see that the parent folder is labelled [FS2], but it does say "elevation & images — addons work with FS4 and FS2"
I am happy with the default elevation and cultivation (which I believe refers to the 3D objects). It is primarily the higher resolution photo scenery I'd like to install.
I believe I need to:
1. Create folders in Aerofly FS 4 Flight Simulator\scenery\images\ (e.g. "South West England Part 1")
2. Insert the relevant downloaded folders, e.g. map_09_7d80_a980 (images only, not cultivation/places)
- Is this correct?
- Do I need to disable the default scenery?
- Can I install the cultivation/places as well?
- Should I also install South West England files from "Even more missing England Files"? (Overwriting the files?)
Thank you IZ0JUB - you are a star
Much appreciated for any help with this.
Looks great! This is exactly what I've been hoping for
I can't find a link, so I assume it's not quite ready yet. Will keep an eye out.
That's fixed it!
Shadows = medium
The shadow rectangles have vanished
I had the same issue till I found out that it occurs only with the lowest shadow quality in the graphic quality settings.
What are your settings? Try it out with middle shadow quality settings.
Does the issue still occurs?
That'll be the cause then!
I was just about to post saying the rectangles are still there even with quality settings on low.
Last night I played with all the settings, including reducing quality to low.
I've had shadows on low for some time (to get as high a frame rate as possible).
I'll put shadows on medium for my next session.
Are you overclocking your GPU? I had this problem but only when I was overclocking my GPU
No, not overclocking.
I considered enabling "Hardware-accelerated GPU scheduling" but after reading mixed reviews I decided not to.
I do enable "gamer mode" on my anti-virus software when playing games.
Thank you both for your replies
Thanks for the info
I've been running with quality settings on high. I'll try putting them to medium next time I play.
I also have trees on high and buildings on medium.
Thanks for your reply.
I have an Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Super, which should be more than enough.
Other than SSDs, the rest of my PC is one I built in 2016 (was very good then) so perhaps my CPU is underpowered? (Intel Core i7-6700K 4.0GHz).
Originally I had an Nvidia GeForce GTX 970, which ran Aerofly FS 2 ok.
Using Oculus Rift-S.
There are two rectangular dark patches (like a shadow) that move as I move my head.
The two rectangles are I think 180 degrees from each other. If I'm flying at right angles to them then I don't notice them so much, but sometimes they are in front of me.
I have uploaded two images showing this rectangular artifact.
The first shows a rectangle clearly. The second shows the rectangle in the distance where the runway is (not so noticable in this image, but it does move rapidly as I turn my head - even small head movements, and is distracting).
Altitude might affect how the rectangles are shown.
I've noticed these for several months now.
Hopefully you can fix them.
I'm using the Vulkan Engine.
Aerofly FS 2/4 is the best flight sim for VR in my opinion.
Looking forward to future updates in scenery resolution
