Confused By Blurring??

Recommended Posts

I installed USA/Canada X textures as per instructions. I also applied the three patch files. My problem is that when I fly 2000ft AGL, or less, the textures near the aircraft are blurred. I thought that there may be some characteristic in FSceneX that I had overlooked so I played with everything from BIOS to fsx/cfg but the textures remained blurred. Then I looked at the new FScene textures sizes and noticed that they were about 8 times smaller. So I compared them in DXTBmp and saw that they were 256x256 versus the original 1024x1024. Just wondering if this is a set of correct observations?

I have the same problem this occurs with mainly the forested textures se screenshot below. the yellow represents the clear forest textures the red the blurried texture.

The explanations can be found on the FScene website:

THE PROBLEM WAS:

Because of the many changes in Microsoft's new flightsimulator X the use of

previous FScene versions works out very disappointing in FSX.

Ugly "gaps" in the terrain because many FSX textures will not be replaced by FScene for FS9.

Moreover the difference in color between FSX and FScene for FS9 shows very prominently.

THE SOLUTION IS:

That's why I rearranged and added many textures for FScene (FS9) to fit FSX and at

the same time I left many advantages of FSX intact, thus combining the best of two worlds.

To remake all FS9 textures, would have taken at least another 5 years.

Thanks,

You mean to say that there is no way to replace the forestland areas with the stock ms texture to make it look 3d . Can I get the file names so I can experiment ? or will there be a patch for this in the future?

Ruud I hope I didn't come on to strong in the above post I have done some more tweaking and just did a High altitude flight and must say it looks fabulous I guess it was sort of a disappointment at first but the more I fly with With your textures the more realistic it seems to get.

Thanks Larry

Ruud was talking about using the FS2004 version (or earlier) of FScene in FSX. With the FSX version there are of course no such problems.

Ok I have tweaked the system a bit and set my detail radius to medium and its starting to look a lot better My computer is an older one to 2800+ athalon 1.5 gigs of ram 7600gt nvidia card with 512 mbs of ram I guess they would even look better with a faster machine . I am also running Vancouver+ and it defiantly makes it look more detailed . would a faster computer get rid of the pixelzation at low altitude ? when I first ran them I could not see the fine detail but now with the tweaking I am really appreciating the detail Ruud has put into them.

Confused no more!! Ruud I have been doing more tweaking and I have to say that its just my machine that needs upgrading flying away from populated areas I am starting to see things that just amaze me . Forests that look real ,colors that make me look at the real world differently ( am always comparing the real world to yours ) I have seen the so called photo realistic scenery but they tend to look less colorful and therefore less realistic at Higher altitudes .

Thank you
