Title: PNHL greyed out from a distance!
Post by: Kilo60 on September 22, 2019, 10:49:59 PM
Notice when flying the pattern into Honolulu the entire AP area is a blank dull grey with no structures or color that sharply stands out from the surrounding scenery.

Looks especially bad when combined with Orbx excellent Honolulu cityscape!

Is there anything that can be done to adjust the LOD for this airport?

Regards

I'm not sure, since the scenery if fairly old, and it was made to support FS9 as well. I'll ask the author.

 This is approx 21km from the center of the airport but it would be nice to have it not all greyed out.

Just checked and FSDT KFLL does not do this!

At approximately the same distance there are basic building structures visible and the runways still show...

Is this due to PHNL being originally developed for FS9 and updated for P3D?

I believe the LOD needs to be adjusted for this Airport!

Any word on this from the Author Umberto?

Is it possible that this AP is still using an old FS9 LOD?

If so is there anyway to update it so it fades/blends better at a distance such as your KFLL AP?

Love the AP but itís ruining an otherwise great scenery combo with ORBX Honolulu cityscape!

He's busy working on an update for Geneva, so I doubt he'll have time to look at PHNL before that one is released.

I see the same thing as the OP although only after installing Orbx Honolulu.
