Question FLIR page visibly rendering

Hello All,

I wonder if this is how it works in real life, I have not seen this effect so far in videos...

Is FLIR page rendering limited to 45 nautical miles on purpose? Is it a bug or work in progress?




My settings:

Yeah, so, if we assume that the slant range for our TGP is about 40 nautical miles - and that assumption is based on public information for AN/ASQ-228, I was not able to find this for our TGP - then it kind of makes sense, however, would it not just be blurry and not rendered at all?

I mean the effect is very poor, looks terrible, to be honest. I guess I would need to see the real-life recording from 28000 feet MSL to find out.

So, I am not about the range itself but about the graphical representation of it.

This has nothing to do with the TPOD's performance. The ~43 NM rendering range is a limit imposed on all optical sensors in DCS. That limit was set some time ago, in order to limit the performance impact of using such sensors.

It's annoying to see at times, but none of the targeting pods we have in DCS should be able to be useful at that range anyway IRL, so at least we're not losing anything in terms of capability.

I also addressed this some time ago in this thread

https://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=252421

Although I don't mind the limited viewing range of the tpod (as long as it is accurate), seeing the ground suddenly render (popup if you will) is a bit of an immersion killer imho.

Would be nice if it were to render a bit more gradually

Ships on the AG radar appear in a range of about 40 miles.

Dont think radar is affected by that, otherwise no radar contacts would appear past 45NM. Not being able to see ships is undoubtedly because AG radar isnt great.
