Aircraft rendering while merging


Recommended Posts

I've been having some difficulties getting visual contact on aircraft while merging; this is particularly problematic for me in actual missions where I always seem to merge completely blind because I can't seem to spot the incoming aircraft, even if I know their altitudes and approximate azimuth.

 

To demonstrate this, I made a custom mission.  I've attached a full resolution (1440p) screenshot highlighting an Su-30 at 3.2 miles, which is clearly visible, and another screenshot at 2.4 miles, where I literally can't see anything.  As reference, there is a second Su-30 a mile or so further back, which remains visible in both screenshots.  As I continue to approach then I can start to make out the wings of the aircraft that I've got a lock on, but it seems to be more of a horizontal profile and very hard to see, especially if I don't know where it is.  I'm not sure if others experience this or if it is purely related to my graphics settings?

The best way to know this is to provide a track, so we can try to reproduce the exact same situation on our PCs. Can you attach a track showing the same thing?

No, I don't have SSAA enabled.  I have MSAA 2x, AF 4x and most settings on High (except Shadows, Heat blur).

 

It seems that at ~2.5 miles it transitions from an obvious black dot, which is there probably to assist in spotting at distance, to rendering the actual aircraft model, but it appears that there is a significant drop in contrast against the background.

I think it's only being masked by its flares. I agree the change it's a little bit "violent" but it's probably due to white flares masking a black square (even if they shouldn't, because they pop behind him). But the aircraft doesn't disappear as it does on Hellbat's screen.
