Hi! I have a strange problem. There are no trees, civilian buildings etc on all terrains I have. I use full 4 merged SF2 with latest patch. Could you help me?

could you be a little less specific???

 

is it safe to assume the TOD biuldings are not showing up? (meaning: the little 1,2 and 3 story buildings in cities) along with the trees.

 

which terrains?

a single terrain, or ALL add-on terrains?

are the stock terrains showing their terrain objects?

which cat are they pointing to? (example below)

 

[Terrain]

TerrainFullName=Central America

DataFile=Panama_data.INI

TargetFile=Panama_targets.INI

TargetTypeFile=Panama_types.INI

MovementFile=Panama_movement.INI

NationsFile=Panama_nations.INI

BriefingText=Panama_briefing.INI

DogfightFile=Panama_dogfight.INI

DogfightOnly=FALSE

WaterMap=Panama_Water.bmp

CatFile=..\Desert\Desert.cat

//CatFile=..\GermanyCE\GermanyCE.cat

//CatFile=..\VietnamSEA\VietnamSEA.cat <--- cat pointer lines

Longitude=79

Latitude=9

LimitedNations=TRUE

GroundObjectTexture=green

Ok, to be more specific:

 

There are no TOD city buildings and trees in all add-on terrains as well as stock terrains. They just don't show up. I didn't mess anything in .cat files and all the cat pointers are set properly. Any ideas?

If the STOCK terrain's aren't show the TOD items, there's something seriously wrong with the game install.

 

Or you're terrain settings are way too low; but I've never heard of them turning "off" TODs (from the main menu, Options -> Graphics --> various stuff

 

On any of the stock terrains, fly over a city, and take a screenie and post it. Safe to assume the runways, wareouses, hangars, etc are showing up?

 

edit:

just tested with LOW on everything, and all the TODs show up, stock desert, germany, isreal and VN.

]After setting EVERYTHING to "medium" TODs started to show up (i only checked the Taiwan terrain) but they're visible only from short distance and on a small piece of ground.

Search the Forums for "fade distance".

Caused by the June 11 patch; even at 7/11 level, you'll have to turn it off in one of the inis (either options or something else I can't rmemeber right now

 

EDIT:

 

option.ini scroll down to this section and do as shown:

 

[GraphicsOptions]

DisplayDeviceID=0

DisplayWidth=1024

DisplayHeight=768

DisplayDepth=32

AspectRatio=1.333333

AntiAliasing=4

UseAdvancedShaders=1

ForceDX9=FALSE

ForceVSyncOff=FALSE

LensFlare=1

DetailLevel=4

ObjectDetail=2

ObjectTexture=3

CockpitMirrors=1

CockpitReflection=1

EffectsDetail=3

TerrainDetail=2

TerrainTexture=3

HorizonDistance=1

GroundObjectDensity=3

WaterDetail=2
