Ground textures are just plain ugly now

I did a flight from Montreal City to Quebec City, and here are the textures of Quebec City and it’s the same problem for Montreal city.,

I use ‘‘ultra’’ settings.

It’s been happening since I installed the new update,

And the graphics quality of the game has dropped since there are updates, that’s my opinion

See you


As people wrote here, check if nvidia experience dont “optimize” your game automatically …

I do not have geforce experience, and I have not changed anything except by doing the Microsoft updates which are required.

I just note that the version of August 18 before the update seems to me better graphically, I see it in Montreal City for example, I fly there all the time and I see the difference, and it’s not my eyes :smiley:

See you

This may be a dumb question but does geforce experience have to be installed by the user for its settings to be applied by nvidia? I would think so. I just wonder if someone has never used it before could it still be effecting things.

The game is destroyed,. That udapte, nice downgrade. for me i deteled the MSFS 2020

No issues here with textures either, something is up on your end


It seems like everyone has different issues with the sim. In my end my terrain look horrible and I have melted buildings. I have everything set to ULTRA. I’m running on a i9-10900k/32gb/2080 Super. I haven’t tried disabling the optimal setting on NE yet. I’ll try it tonight hopefully that fixes this issue because it looks so bad

Best of luck to you. I was sure relieved when it fixed it for me. Hope that’s all it is for you.

I’ll keep you updated when I test it tonight

I do think the sim has been downgraded to some extent but not dramatically by no means. I really do hope people at least look at this to make sure it’s not the simple solution it was for me. In earlier posts I’ve made people did say it was an issue for them too.

I figured they dropped down the graphics to test it on the Xbox

for me the graphic aspect has changed a lot. It’s not what they sold you in the trailers. Now it is totally different. Looks like fsx.

Yes let us know, really hope it works out for you and others who are having issues.

So sorry to hear that’s been your experience. It really scares me to hear so many are seeing this and GE has nothing to do with it for them. I worry if it’s an issue for many then sales will decrease exponentially.

Clear your cache, and you could also turn up your ground detail, at 200 is the best for quality.

Been there, done that mate.
I have everything on ultra. Still no results.

I’ll let you tonight. This isn’t the sim they promoted in the trailers.


You’re right. They sold us a whole different product.

Just wondering if you’ve had a chance to check your NGE settings yet? I’ve been at work and haven’t played for 24 hours or so. Hope nothings changed since I played last. Who knows.
