Took a flight around Frankfurt

Post by Trent-o-matic » Tue Jan 10, 2023 12:41 pm

A few issues:

- Industrial chimneys standing on top of each other. It seems like FSDG landmarks are present in the photogrammetry areas, and that the sim place them on top of the photogrammetry geometry. However, when you're a couple of hundred meters from the object, they move down to correct position. Of course it looks really weird with double chimneys standing on top of each other in the distance.

- It was quite obvious that the FSDG chimneys does not look much like the PG-once they were replacing. I don't think they had the correct height either.

- Stutters. Even though the scenery added little extra detail to the Frankfurt area, the sim struggled with some stuttering. I think this may be related to the same issue seen with 'Powerlines and Solar Farms' in the later builds of MSFS.

Btw: Are the smoke effect optional?

We haven't had any reports of stutters of bad fps with our landmarks series.
Regarding the chimneys, we tried to only add those which are not already included as photogrammetry. We'll have to check the Frankfurt area to see if we missed any.
The chimney heights will be fixed with the upcoming update.

Here are some screenshots. I guess this is not how the scenery is supposed to look?

Do you see the 3d-modelled chimneys stacked on top of the photogrammetry chimneys?

Yes. We're looking into it and will update the scenery soon.

There is currently a large delay for releases and updates in the MSFS Marketplace. The team told us they're fixing this. In the meantime, we're focusing on developing new addons.
We hope that it will soon be possible to release updates in a reasonable time.

We try to release addons and updates in all shops within a reasonable time. Since there is a big delay in the Marketplace, we wait with our updates to make sure there's only a small delay between the releases.
Otherwise, we would have to give support to several different versions, which might lead to confusion (at least on our side).

It will take a bit longer until the scenery is updated on all platforms.

Ok, are you also able to update the tedious installation routine for Aerosoft customers? They have a really nice system with Aerosoft One, that it would be super if you utilised.

The summer is over and we're in mid September. 3 more months. How is progress? It's now been a bit over 9 months since the issue was reported...
