Wingman disappears at short distance, why ?

Postby mhab » Fri May 15, 2015 8:19 am

Hello

I've tried quite some things with adding wingmen and formation flights ...

I succeeded to fly the mb339pan in formation and even made the wingmen react to gear, flaps, smoke, etc. commands from the leader.
If I fly in formation I can position myself anwhere in an outside view without any of the wingmen disappearing. Nice experience b.t.w.

Now my question:
I created/setup an EC130 heli wingman. When I fly a heli formation any of the wingmen helis disappear as soon as I come closer than ~50m or so.
Seems whenever the wingman would be bigger than ~200px they get disabled/invisible.
In Rembrandt their shadow is still visible, but the heli itself is invisible ...

What is the reason for this ? Is it an option setting for rendering ? Is it a bug ?

P.S.: I've played around with LOD settings but couldn't find any option which improves this annoying behaviour :(

Hope somebody can point me to a solution

Thanks

As nobody seems to know, I've passed this question on to the devel-list ...
Hopefully somebody there can point me to a solution ...
