answered Texture apparently streched, Africal LC in Egypt.


Recommended Posts

Hello, this is my first post on this forum.  I bought LC Africa a good while ago, and love it.  I just found some strange texture around HEBL (Luxor, Egypt). I think those are agricultural irrigation circles, but they should be round.  They are oval instead.

Is it just me ?  Is there some configuration that could fix it ?  Thanks.

I'm using FSX Steam, Orbx Global with Vectors. 

Edit : also with FS Global 2010.

Hello,

I see much the same.

if you load the area into Google Earth and then use the time slider to view

images at different times, you will see evidence of irrigation circles in groups.

Perhaps that is the landclass way of displaying them, it does have its limitations.

Thanks for your reply, and yes, I think you're right.  I didn't think about it before as being the cause of the problem.

 

I included two other screenshots, this time in Taber, Alberta, Canada, and Haigler, Nebraska (US).  

 

In Abu Simbel, which is at latitude 21 N, the circles are stretched in the east-west direction.

In Haigler, latitude 39 N, they are pretty much round.

In Taber, 49 N, they are stretched in the north-south direction instead.

 

Which reminded me immediately of those highly unrealistic clouds stretched north-south you see when flying in the Arctic in FSX.  So that's it, this is caused by the geometrical limitations in the way FSX renders the spherical planet.  I have no clue if this problem has been solved in the new MSFS, but I hope so.

 

Thanks for you time, have a great day.

 

Edit : it looks like FSX was calibrated to give perfect texture rendering around the latitude of the central continental US.
