v3.009 LOD short distance rendering?

Recommended Posts

 

Short clip from this weekend on KOTA server. This must be a bug, right?

That's the cloud problem. Players can't see planes folly zoomed out when a cloud is "behind" them.

Yeah, its bad.

Do you happen to run the game at high or ultra preset and cloud quality to high?

Oh no, please not the cloud discussion again.

We've been there before and final saying has been given.

I tested on ultra settings with no AA and no clouds,

A20 "suddenly" appear/ disappear at a distance of 9.5 kilometers. Which looks odd, because they are big and thus very well visible at this distance.

 

A workaround for the cloud issue for me is to disable anti-alialising and use downsampling to get rid of the jaggies.

What is shown in video is not cloud problem its 9,5km rendering distance problem, as for big airplanes you can clearly see how they just apear out of nowere when they come 9,5km from you, its even wors on high alt when you have contrails just apear out of nowere at 9,5km from you, and for ww2 airplanes 9,5km is nothing.

 

and to answer op, its not bug its game limitation, and its not since 3.009 its in game from start, and devs said they would like to change it when they have time from answers on redit from last year.

as far as I can remember, in perfect weather conditions, pilots and AA crew spotted planes from even more than 75 km. Is it correct?

i think 75km is to big i dont remenber reading anything about that high.

 

but recently i was reading something about testing lights on wings of torpedo bombers to hide them from enemy flaks, and without any lights detection range was ~12miles ~20km, and when they had thouse lights on wings it was only ~2miles only. ill post link when i locate it.

 

It was caled Yehudi, and that was tested on avenger size airplane, so we should be able to see airplanes that size in game from 20km atleast:

i also ment that as distance, not high as hight, so i dont remenber reading anything about that high range :)

20km sounds about right, IIRC it is the same or similar rendering distance we had with the venerable '46.

 

Just like we got 150km ground rendering and proper horizon, here is hoping this time next year we will have this...

No matter how funny this is, the planes in first post are russian. You have the wrong thread m8.

 

Since we're using SW, then this is not the thread you're looking for:
