    If you mean with the buildings then unfortunately that's a LOD error, which we can't fix as it's a fault in the UE4, we're waiting for Epic to fix this, once they do the flickering will go away :)

    I was referring to the flickering on the VDL bus... I recorded a video in a post you answered

  • Track IR issue (fov issue) seems to be sorted from testing so far.


    Couple of issues I've found with the BETA (so far):


    1) AI Traffic incidents at the following locations:

    a. (note my ai setting is 50) - See images fb_ait_a01 through till 03.


    b. Second incident - See images fb_ait_a04 through till 06.


    2) Front Mirrors (top right mirror) showing side mirror images instead of front of the coaches on MAN's. I've not tested the other vehicles I own yet.


    3) I use to be able to press and hold a button on my wheel which zoomed in on where I was looking ... then after releasing, it would go back to my usual FOV.


    This doesn't seem to work anymore - I would love to have this back PLEASE!


    I looked in the settings and you have to set a zoom out as well as zoom in keys.


    I would prefer the old way of having one key which you pressed and held to zoom in; then let go of for the FOV to go back to normal.


    EDITED:


    Question: The sun rays seem to block vision quite a lot during sunset. Is this intentional? When putting down the sun screen, I found these were not blocked out and therefore vision was not improved.
