Flashing snow textures

Post by airbadger » Sat Feb 24, 2018 4:22 pm

I'm getting tons of flashing snow textures, especially on taxiways. I haven't tried other seasons. Anyone else seeing this?

Checked for duplicate AFCAD files? AI Traffic programs like to sneak them onto systems.

I have UTL but I'm not sure where to look for duplicate files.

Disabling snow drifts seems to greatly reduce the flickering.

It isn't a UTL problem since UTL doesn't use airport bgls like My Traffic. However, those are the only two AI traffic programs I have direct knowledge of.

I'm not sure where they are for Ultimate Traffic. Maybe it doesn't have any in recent releases.
Try looking in P3D4\Scenery\World\scenery first. Any files with KBOS in the title probably should be disabled, eg. AF2_KBOS_ALT.BGL

My Traffic is usually located somewhere like - MyTraffic\scenery\BR2_ICAO.bgl

Rename the .bgl to .bak

There's an Airport scanner to check for dupes.

No dupe airports. I'm just going to keep the snow drifts feature off for now - that's seems to be my best guess as to the culprit.

I just want to point out that I'm still getting this, just not as bad with snow drifts off. It's especially noticeable in the area between terminal b and the main/satellite terminals.

For anyone having this issue and who uses ChasePlane, back up your cameras.cfg and then find any instance of ClipMode= Minimum and change it to ClipMode = Normal. This seems to have fixed the issue for me.
