Viewing Issues With FS2000, Any Input?

Mon Jun 04, 2001 12:29 pm

I have noticed on some aircraft, when in spot plane view, the wing for example is right up in my face and the rest of the plane looks far away, or the same case for other parts of the plane. Why is this?

Sometimes you can go into the view options and fix that by setting the distance, other times it doesnt work. I hate it when it does that you can never look at it right.

I've only had this problem with reworked FS98 flightmodels. So use 'real' FS2000 aircraft and it'll work.

How can you tell whether or not they are reworked? There are times when I go to Flightsim.com and the description says nothing about being a reworked model.

The only real reason why I have a problem with this is because I usually switch to spot plane while I taxi. It's easier to plan which taxiway to use and avoid static scenery.

Folks, the problem can occur on "pure" FS2000 models as well - the culprit is called "Z-Buffer" and represents the "view depth", i.e. how far away the part is from the viewers point. Mostly it is automatically computed by the flightsim, but also it can be tweaked and the automatic computed value bypassed when designing the plane and compiling the MDL. FS2k designers use this option often for collecting ugly seams between 2 parts or fight bleedthrough problems.
