[Bug] Problems with water surface

Postby Stevil » Sun Dec 25, 2016 3:07 pm

Hi Dan,

I often fly around Ibiza (LEIB) and I saw some very strange "borders" in the sea. It looks like something is wrong with the water there:
In the morning or evening the colors of the water are very exaggerated while the other half of the border looks quite normal. Also the reflections look weird because on one half of the border there are reflections and on the other there are not.

Last but not least there are some strange reflections from the ground, which are also described in another thread:
It seems like some of the hills or something from the coast is shimmering in fragments on the water and I also had some unnatural reflections from the runway on the water where there should not be any.

I will add some screenshots for you. This is not limited to the LEIB area. I have the same effects when flying around Nizza LFMN - same border, same shimmering, same weird reflections. Sometimes it looks like the stars are on the water and not in the sky.

If you are still in need of beta testers please let me know. It would be a pleasure to support you guys.

BR
Stephan

Copy/pasted from a similar thread:

Right now FlyInside XP disables X-Plane 11 water animations. X-Plane 11 water animations have an issue where they take up a disproportionate amount of FPS, hence the solid blue water. Hopefully this will be fixed in a future X-Plane update, and we'll update FlyInside to match :)

If you'd prefer FlyInside not to interfere, you can go to "FlyInside Menu -> Settings -> Graphics", uncheck "Enable VR Optimizations", and restart your simulator.

Thanks!
