Phil's latest video on this topic is encouraging to see ... as it shows that the SMAA feature interferes with contact spoting at different FoV levels. I look forward to trialling this on my own setup.

DD-Fenrir nicely explains the FoV (Zoom) feature.
It is an important comment here as in fairness, it's not necessarily intuitive and I can understand folks misunderstanding of the zoom feature in the flight sim. (same in racing sims incidentally)

This is the complexity of this topic .... everyone's mileage varies which is the frustration. by the way, in case you mean viewing the YouTube video, then I can't see the dots either. This is down to what YouTube does when it renders the video though.
S!

You can't see them in the YouTube video, or you can't see them in your game when at the same distance?

did a quick test of this yesterday at 1440p and seems you might be on to something. turned all my aa off and i could see contacts in the air a lot better. but the big bonus for me is i could spot them easier against the terrain when i had a height advantage, where as before i would always lose them. have you tested anisotropic filtering as well?

I don't think not being able to see the B17's in the video says anything. YT process the videos being uploaded, over which you have no control. This processing could easily make the B-17's invisible.

Yesterday i had time for a sortie on BS and the label mod was off. Didn't spot anything on my 27 inch monitor, even where contacts are reported to be, until 2 spits and me bumped into each other
Tried out the single player quick missions out and came to the conclusion that unless you know where exactly to look at you wont find anything in a reliable manner.
