Version 1.1

I am preparing the release of version 1.1 . This has the following changes/features.

UPDATE!  Should now be available for download.

Improved Shadow Accuracy

Shadows now start where they should (or at least very close). This has also allowed a reduction in z fighting that was sometimes seen.

Long Range AI Visibility

There were complaints that the Effects fix – impacted the long range visibility of AI lights. Version 1.1 has a new option to install a lights package for the standard nav lights. This implements a different change in these lights which should ensure that they are visible at longer ranges.

Light Field BGLs

Legacy airport lighting has proved problematic – turning off and on as the viewing angle changes. The previous advice was to try adding a ballast light to the aircraft, but this did not entirely resolve the problem. Version 1.1 now supports the addition of a scenery object known as a “light field” to airports. This much improves the behaviour of legacy point lighting. The release contains sample XML and also 25,000 prebuilt bgls for the standard airports.

Bloom Changes

For some reason the in game bloom option did not disable bloom for PAPI lights and Car headlights in DX10. It now does. This can help with airports like Bergen which use Alpha blend. The alpha blend factor in DX10 is 4 x greater which means that this airport became white.

I don't use FSX that much. But I am very annoyed when it doesn't work properly!

    Yep, I had installed the nav lights but not the light field. It´s my mistake I had not read the 1.1 manual until the last page mentionning the hand made tweak with the light field for legacy airports…. 🙂
    Now, it´s done and works great!
    Steve, thanks again for your high contribution to the DX10 community.

    This is a wonderful addon Steve. I can finally use DX10 and it is a great improvement. Thank you so much for your work on this software.
