Looks like these issues are related to graphics settings. Please increase the settings to check if the errors still appear.

Both things happen to me too

What settings do you recommend?

I use high settings

But how settings could cause the morphing of the terrain?

Thanks

Do you use other addons that cover this area?

Same problem here. I also re-downloaded the scenery and re-installed, cleared the rolling cache but to no avail. When flying over Mauritius the tiles keep changing as if the standard tiles are being reloaded with the scenery tiles.
I have no other addon/scenery which covers that area.

Best regards,
Oliver

Can you please post a screenshot of your graphics settings?
Does the tile issue happen all across the island or only at a certain location?

Hi
No addons in the area

I also have bing maps enabled and photogammetry

All the terrain on the coast (the brownish area changes) it loads in blocks and slowly covering the green areas. When flying over the sea some textures flicker as explained by the other user.
I flew near the mountains and you could see the texture changing below the trees actually at some stage it seemed there were no trees

These are my settings.

Thanks for your feedback. That issue does not seem to be related to graphics settings. It might depend on your internet connection. We could not produce the same effect on our test PCs, but that might be because all the Bing data is already cached on them. Does the tile effect happen everytime you fly through those areas, or only when you visit those places for the first time?

As for the flickering reef, that is related to LODs, terrain settings and the way MSFS clips those features. We'll soon release an update that decreases the chances of that happening.

Thank you Thorsten

I had the impression it happens at launched but I will check again

My internet connection is 100 mb

I'll clear my cache before testing again

Thanks

Hi again

Cache cleared before last test

The issue remains. It happens when you launch the sim and the plane starts the run ( the textures seem to follow the plane)
Then on air it stops but if you fly low close it happens again

Sorry for the dark images I flew at dusk and live weather but you can notice it

The issue happens in these areas

Noted on the LOD for the water issue

Cheers

I just bought this addon which is fantastic, but am having the same tile problem. Basically as you fly around the tiles change and fill in as you fly near them, if you circle back they don't remain the same, but disappear as you leave them and do the same as you approach them again. I thought it may be loading and then they would stay put, but every time you fly by them they change. Last night i was flying on the island and the ground was just changing continually as i flew around. Some sort of bug. I hope you guys can fix it. Takes away the realism. Just wanted to report that another person was experiencing the exact same problem. 1080ti Ryzen 5 3600x 32 GB Ram. High/Ultra setting combo.

If you take a look at this gentlemen's review which by the way helped me to decide to buy this addon. Around the 29:11 mark he discusses and videos an example. It will do this on the main island away from the shore too.

Are you using an HDD or SSD drive?

NVME Gen 3 SSD. Very fast SSD. Its doesn't seem to be drive related. Ok more info. It seems to be in the upper left hand quadrant of the map it happens to me. Not other places so far. Near the skydive austral airstrip. I will send a video to your email or something from my phone.

I just sent a personal message to you with a google drive link for 5 videos. I just flew around the island in a jet to make good speed, and the upper left of the island is the problem area for sure. That little bay where my plane icon is in and the surrounding area.
