P3D V3.3.5 Taxiline flickering

Post by Chok » Wed Jul 06, 2016 6:28 pm

Hello Flytampa.

I recently purchased Flytampa Dubai and have noticed a few issues with it.

When you taxi around the airport the taxi lines flicker and disappear in front of the aircraft. It doesn't happen everywhere but on different spots around the airport.

(i've chosen to show three places, the second one is the worst where almost the entire line behind the terminal is gone. It is only the line itself that flickers, the night lighting works fine)

1: https://gyazo.com/1bc29262d1c96176ad57e41b127e79b5 (on Z northern side of terminal A)
2: https://gyazo.com/66a295f8a565807a194f7190beb83a19 (on J southern side of terminal A)
3: https://gyazo.com/fe96ad0556af33bd331c26df05162f85 (on M northern side of 30L)

I've tried messing with different settings in the sim without luck.

I run P3D V3.3.5 on Windows 10 64bit.
If you require footage or more information i'll provide it :)

Do you by any chance have a conflicting scenery for Dubai or AI traffic program that may have added it's own airport file?

I dont have any AI traffic and i dont have any other scenery for dubai or the surrounding area that could cause it.

I did run the vector config after installing.

I have FTX Global and FTX Vector with updated libraries, and my FT libraries are up to date.

i made a video showing the problem at one of the places above (behind concourse A)
And some texture overlapping on taxiway M towards the northern side of the airport.

Any ideas ?

Interesting, I see it too.. Never looked that hard to notice it before... No vector here at all.

As of now i have attempted the following:

Basically changed tried to mess with every setting in the sim itself.
Rebuilding shaders.
Disabling custom mesh (Freemesh X)
Disabling FTX products (vector and global)
Ezdok clipmode from Minimum to Normal.

None of this helped though.

can any of you devs comment on whether this is something you wanna look in to. If it could be resolved in a future update/patch, or if you dont wanna take action on it?

Sounds similar like a problem the simwings developer had with malaga.

If anyone reading this updated P3D to version 3.4, it would be awesome if you could report if the layering fix in 3.4 solved this issue.

Updating to P3D V3.4 did not resolve the issue on my system.

Same here. Windows 10 64. Clean install with Dubai as 1st addon. To ease the OP's worries.
