A New day, the old visibility issues

Getting ready at Sonny Bono Airport for a trip to the coast, once again with AS16 real weather - and hoping for californian sun...

This is what I call a blurry VC, as already reported I have this impression since I changed from 4.1 to 4.3. I must try to change some settings (which I did not change actively)...

At least we can get her in the air and leave Palm Springs with nice views.

Passing the San Gabriel mountains...

... before entering thick overcast on descend. Again. These coastal clouds are a pain! While I was carefully descending, ATC announced a change of runway, just to increase my stress level a bit. I was not even able to capture a shot of the milk outside - just in the final seconds the runway came into view:

Full brakes...

... and here we are, ready for some crab dinner at Cannery Road. But where is the sunshine?

Oh yeah, crab dinner !! I'll join you for that, Gerold.

 

Very nice shots, but at least in these ones the VC does not come across as blurry, at least not for me. Even, when I click on the picture to enlarge it, it looks fine to me. But maybe I need new reading glasses.:)

 

Why don't you try this: take screenshots of the VCs, where you think they appear blurred. Then delete the 4.3 client and go back to 4.1 or 4.2, take the same shots and compare them

Wonderful flight Gerold, now I thought the weather was always crystal clear along the coast or was I dreaming this!:o

 

Meals describe some portions of my flights too, you have the crab dinner and my landings are usually a dog's breakfast.:ph34r::wacko::lol:

Thanks for commenting Bernd. I forgot to mention the cold white wine accompanying the dinner. Would that be a suggestion?

 

Maybe it is only me needing new reading glasses. Though... meanwhile I have changes the antialiasing settings (fxaa off, 4xmsaa, textures 4096 in the sim, follow application settings in nvidia inspector), and it looks much better. I suspect p3d changed its setting during the upgrade.

Sorry for interrupting your dreams, Martyn. I will go on cheating with the weather in the next days, I just like to see the scenery!

 

Hope you have some good meals during your flights at least?

Jumpin' Jupiter - these are some amazing shots!

Thank you Bermuda. You may imagine how amazed I was when I couldn´t see the runway until about 500 ft AGL...!

Quite the nice flight Gerold, and I see what you mean with the blurry cockpit, did you get it straightened out and if so how?

Thanks Jack. I got it solved now, it was the antialiasing setting that was changed by p3d during the update. Now I am back to my successful original.

Thanks Gerold, can you be more specific?

 

Before I make any changes I always take a lot of screen caps of all my settings.

The screen shot work is a good practice.

I had just copied my p3d.cfg, and when comparing and reinstalling these I overlooked the following: 

p3d apparently changed fxaa and msaa. So I returned to fxaa off, 4xmsaa, textures 4096 in the sim, along with "follow application settings" in nvidia inspector.

Ah!  I see!  I was told by Jetline to use only 4xmsaa.  Glad it was something so very simple Gerold, good for you my friend!

Even more incredible to think that ILS minimums are 200 ft AGL ceiling! It is a relief to see a big runway in front of you by then.

Fantastic shots Gerold! :)  I'm not having that ploblem with 4.3, and as mentioned above, try turning off FXAA.

I did as you said - and it worked! You have deserved a very BIG THANK YOU, Adam :rollmyeyes:!

These are outstanding pictures, Gerold - and a really cool plane and cool angles...

 

When I read your post I first realized that you meant blurries in the VC, not in the landscape... Good to hear that you sorted that out, but the first thing that came to my mind was that you could try to switch "Mipmap VC panel" in the options - without it my VCs look blurry, too, it's just that I had already forgotten that... :rollmyeyes:B)

Thank you Lars.

When moving to 4.3 I compared the fresh p3d.cfg with the previous one, and "MIPMAP_VC_PANELS=1" was still unchanged. FXAA was the key for me, and unnoted...
