Hello!

 

Here are shots from my trees planting work for Operation Tainted Cigar 2 terrain:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Apart from adding trees I've also added new terrain tiles for more varied look:

 

 

 

Apart from Cuba itself I've also retiled parts of Florida mainland, Bahamas, Haiti, Isla de la Juventud.

 

I have also retiled using new textures areas around airbases and various target areas to avoid trees on runways, or large structures in very dense jungle:

 

 

 

50+ target area surroundings retiled:

 

 

 

 

 

But don't be surprised when flying down low over the jungle you'll get torn to pieces by a hidden ZPU-4...

 

Usual ETA of two

One thing I should mention -few days ago I had a version that liked to CTD when browsing through ground objects via F7 key (I was checking placement errors). Hopefully I got rid of it with newer .tfd file , but IF you do encounter such problem please notify here. I guess it was also related with very high detail mesh size, 17.

Hey CA_Stary,

 

I downloaded the cuba tree mod, and saw a problem I've never seen before. All the trees are flickering in unison at a very high rate the entire time they are visible. I tired messing with all the settings suggested in the readme, but it didn't fix anything. Changing ground object settings has no effect either.

 

I have the Green Hell and Forest and Farms mod, and haven't had this problem with either of those mods, so I'm thinking it's something specific to Cuba. Can you help me trouble shoot this? I'm dying to fly over som Cuban foliage!

 

Thanks!

Quite strange.

 

1. Have you enabled vertical synch in your graphics card control panel? Try with ON settings

 

2. Are you using some enviroment mods? I've tested stock and WideSky with no problems so far.

 

3. And what are your [GraphicsSettings] in flightengine.ini? Increased as in Knowlegde Base?

 

4. How much video ram do you have? Maybe somehow related with the high resolution trees textures. Try these resized:

 

 

 

I downsized them by half. Unpack to Cuba folder.

I see you're making progress my student :smile: that's nice of you Dave.

I don't know. Brain told me recently it's close to release, but he's very busy in RL these days. We must be patient.

 

EDIT:

 

I'll be offline (short vacations) for next 5-6 days from tomorrow, hope no major bugs will show up.

1. My graphics card (integraeted) doesn't have vertical sync.

2. Should be just wide sky.

3. Graphics settings:

 

[GraphicsSettings]

ZBufferDepth=24

MaxVertexCount=8192

MaxIndexCount=16384

MaxTextureCount=8192

MaxModelType=1024

MaxMeshPerScene=1024

MaxModelPerScene=2048

MaxLightPerScene=512

AspectRatio=1.333333

MinPixelSize=1.0

 

4. 128 MB graphics memory. But like I said, it's integrated. The smaller tree textures didn't help.

 

FWIW, I dropped my VietnamSEA (with green hell) folder into my OTC install, and it ran fine. So I think it must be something unique to the OTC tree mod...?

 

Any other ideas?

I actually got it figured out. In Green Hell and Forest and Farms, this is in the data.ini:

 

BlendOp=BLEND_SRC_ALPHA

 

In Cuba, it's:

 

BlendOp=BLEND_DST_ALPHA

 

I changed Cuba to match Green Hell and F&F, and it works now!!! Don't know what I did, but it works...

 

Good work CA_Stary and thanks for the help! :good:

It's new rendering command I use now to eliminate that white annoying outline on trees. Seems your card don't like it. Good news!

Ocean looks ok to me, given the distance and haze. As for the runways -I haven't touched targets or .hdf files, so maybe it's problem with given plane?
