Missing sections and no foreground texture

There are three parallel lines each about 620m long and having the same definition, a gp_white texture and a gp_asphalt_medium backing texture.

The two outer lines have sections where only the background texture is displayed and the centre one also has a section compltely missing:



The compile optoins were:



Is this a case where I am lucky to see anything at all in FSX or is there something I can do to fix it?

BTW. I don't seem to have a problem with lines defined by a texture defined in Lines_Def.txt.

George, as usual, I need the AD3 file in order to investigate such an unusual problem.

Hi Don,

It appears to depend upon the view angle. At certain angles, the lines display correctly.

I'll check it in P3D.
 
Don't spend any time on this Don. It displays fine at any angle in P3D (apart from hiding the shadows ;) )

If it displays at all, ADE_GP has done everything it can do. By definition, ground polys always display at the elevation of their reference point.

Presumably, the lines disappear at low viewing angles. This is often due to "ripples" in the flatten and are most prevalent near the edges of the flatten.

Our posts crossed.

Doesn't P3D v2 have a volume shadow capability? Perhaps that would allow shadows on ground polys (though expensive in processing)

Well, it is nowhere near the edge of the flatten. In fact there are two flattens, a vector flatten and an apron ;)

I was thinking of the Shadows/Buildings/Receive which you have checked. So, even though GPs are scenery objects, it would seem they don't qualify as "buildings"

Just a thought
