Projected Meshes

Hi all,

I had made a post about this a week ago, but looks like it might have been removed.

Is anyone else experiencing issues with projected meshes since SU5 + Hotfix?

Mine load up fine but as soon as I move the camera, they start breaking apart and eventually disappearing completely. Thought it might have been an LOD issue, but having the issue even at close distances.

This is currently hindering moving on with our commercial project so could really use some insight as to if this is a known issue.

Many thanks!

Hi, the problem remains. What is grouped does not work either2021-08-07-12-35-34-microsoft-flight-simulator-118.png.

In the same vein: even trying to translate a PM results almost immediately in a CTD. Might it be linked to the grouping?

Same problem here, no response for many weeks.
I notified this via Email the same day we started beta testing SU5 and got no response.

Here I have also notified and no response, like you I have 2 projects without being able to move forward because of this problem.
The projected mesh disappears a few seconds after being exported.

Asobo gentlemen, a little more attention please.

Thank you and the rest of the others who chimed in to confirm this issue. Indeed, it's been weeks without a single acknowledgement from the SDK team.


I once again plead with the Asobo team to take this more to heart. This is not a hobby for many of us, this is how we make a living and to have such an obvious issue lack acknowledgment is not a good thing.

Hello
I actually addressed this issue and answered @TDM_SceneryDesign here: Problems with projected mesh - MSFS DevSupport (flightsimulator.com)
We have reproduced and partly fixed the issue in our development build. I need to gather more information to make sure all problems have been resolved.
I know this is a big issue for many of you but creating new questions about the same issue over and over is counter productive and actually prevents me from easily keeping track of it.
If I haven't provided an answer to a specific question, you can tag me in the original post rather than creating a new one.

Regards,
Sylvain

Sylvain,


I originally made a post about this, but the question disappeared, hence why I asked again. Perhaps it's the one you linked me to? If so, please note that that link is dead. We're not trying to make multiple posts, we're trying to have our original one acknowledged.

Again, this is an issue that has stopped MANY of our (commercial) projects so I truly hope the team can issue a hotfix ASAP -- At the very least, we'd sincerely welcome updates and projected ETA's for a solution.

I'm quite sure you can understand our frustration.

Regards.

Hello,

Sorry for the lack of answer - most of the team is off at the moment.

We confirm the bug and we're doing our best to fix it for the next update.

Hi Alyzee,


Thank you SO much for confirming the bug and for working on it. We're very much looking forward to the possible fix in upcoming version. What date is that scheduled to release?

Thanks.

Hello lapalabra,

The date isn't official yet so I'm not able to share it :(

We'll keep you posted anyway in the weekly updates available on Microsoft Flight Simulator.

Hello Alyzee,


Just wanted to personally thank you for giving us an update today's dev update regarding the projected mesh issue.

So it's an LOD issue? Is there any way we can force it on our end before the update on Sept. 7? Interesting thing just happened, I was playing around with settings in the Debug LODs window and after a restart of the sim, my projected meshes are working properly.

Thanks again!
