Sometimes when you fly low over an area the buildings are rendered. Flying over the same area another time will show the buildings as boxes, which look rubbish. All the screenshots below were taken with Ultra settings. I have a fast internet. These problems are the same even if the scene is pre-cached at high detail to the manual cache so its not a bandwidth problem.
However, it must be a server side problem just because of the fact that the building rendering is random. If it was client side it would either render the building or it wouldn’t. Not just do it “sometimes”.
Here are screenshots with notes. This process refused to let me upload videos that make it a lot clearer!
This shows the area I am flying over on Bing maps. You can clearly see that all buildings are similar and are clearly houses
Flight 1: Approaching the village. Most of the buildings are bland boxes
Flight 1: Further on - still mostly boxes
Flight 1: Even the church boxxy.
Flight 2: Approaching the village, most of the buildings now look great. Some do not still.
Flight 2: As it should be! The rendering looks good here!
Flight 2: Even the church looks churchy.
This problem is spoiling low level flying over built up areas. One of the best things that made this sim stand out and really promote that “go anywhere” tag.
EDIT: A bit later I tried changing the selected server from Auto (West Europe) to North Europe. When I flew the drone cam over the village it was almost perfectly rendered as these following screenshots show.
However, I don’t think it was the change of server that had anything to do with it as other areas I flew over were boxes instead of houses.
