Missing building textures?

Post by breakinghbts » Thu Apr 30, 2020 1:47 pm

Using P3Dv5, In the las vegas city, I'm noticing some buildings near the stratosphere showing as black. I can see the windows, and the outline of the building (3D model), but that's it, as far as just being a big black object sticking out into the air. I looked on google maps, and these buildings are actually almost white. I don't recall this issue in v4. I tried searching the forums, and google, couldn't find anything about this. Any help is appreciated, thanks.

Im using v5, and yes the pbr option is enabled. Im assuming thats why i can see the windows. I tried a reinstall using the universal installer. No luck.

Hopefully this time you can see it. According to google those buildings should be very light in color.

So there are no missing textures or black buildings, you are just complaining about the quality/accuracy of FlyTampa's rendition (I suspect you are trying to disguise it in a "support" request).

These were grey in v4.5 too. In P3Dv5, textures are more 'contrasted' and many surfaces have become much darker. I dont see any missing textures however.

maybe try the attached file. Extract and drop into 'Prepar3D v5\FlyTampa\LasVegas\texture' and replace.

Well that was unnecessarily confrontational. I didn't realize it was a design error. To my eyes it looks just like a black building with the windows and balconies(is that what they are) textured. I guess it is what it is.

Ill try those files when i get a chance. I dont recall such dark (black) buildings in v4. The only reason i looked at google was becuase i was doing circuits around the strip, and the buildings stuck out from the rest of the strip. And appeared blank.

Thanks for those who helped explain the issue.

Also that pic was taken with PBR off (since i was asked to check both) those buildings are much darker with PBR on.

Just wanted to mention those new textures worked perfectly. I can distinguish the roof from the building, etc. Thanks again.
