Hi,

I noticed that parts of the planes that are under the water are reflected in a slightly unsettling way due to perspective perception.

Easiest way to reproduce the effect is to land in the water with default 737 and see the submerged engines (bonus - submerged helicopter).

Let me know if you need any additoinal information. I noticed that few days ago in v11.00 for the first time, but waited for v11.01 update.

PS. Thanks for creating that lovely simulator!

I do not see this on my machine. It could be specific to your rendering options or the GPU. Attach a screen shot of your rendering settings & the log.txt.

Sorry, I should have been more specific. Screenshot of my rendering options and Log.txt attached.

It is always visible when I position camera very close to the water with plane in front of me. When camera is moved higher above the water the strange reflection disappears.

Let me know how else I can help.

Looks like this is tied to the reflection setting. I can see this with the reflection slider set to max.

Reflection set to Low, still visible, just lower reflection resolution. On Minimal reflection disappears completly.

I noticed that reflection sometimes "jumps". Someties amplitude is low, but I managed to catch high amplitude in below videos.
