George,
Got a funny feeling that look is to do with DX10 preview being on or off.
You may be right Mike.

I have two systems, a Phenom 940 with a GTX 760 running XP and an I7 8700K with a 1080Ti running W10.

The XP machine doesn't show DX10 preview but has D3D10=0 in the cfg. This system will not display the Vega :dunno:

The W10 system displays it fine :thumbsup:

George,
Glad you found a cure - had me worried!
My main puter has W8.1, AMD Radion HD5700, & a 6 core AMD Phenom II & only FSX SP2 & FS9. My laptop is a cheapie but it runs FS9, FSX SP2 & FSXA using W10 just about, but good enough for cross checking.

Just landed after succesful flights in both FS9 and FSX (sp2) - I won't repeat the comments made by others so here's my few very pedantic motes -
1 - I would prefer to see more texture differentiation between the metal engine cowls and the presumably fabric and/or wooded fuselage . This couldd be achieved by removing /reducing the noise speckle from the cowl area. Also a reduction in the overall brightness of the 'silver' may help realism.
2 - The cockpit floor is suspiciously squeaky-clean - no scuff marks etc.
3 - The aircraft handles very well as expected of your work. :agree:
The above comments apply to both 'sims although the shine is better in FSX due to its advanced rendering of same.
Celebs ?? - please reveal rtheir names to us old codgers here. :lol:
Cheers :party:

Dave,
Thank you for your comments, very much appreciated - as from all the others.
Silver on the cowl - the photos I have found of silver Proctors & Vega Gulls do not show polished metal, unlike some Miles aircraft.
Brightness of silver difficult - depends a lot on ones monitor setup.
Photos of HET also do not show any difference in gloss between metal & elsewhere either, so my preference is as is.
Carpets have just been hoovered - hence clean! (My previous attempts at creating heel scuff marks were terrible, so new out of the hangar instead)

Celebs = Kate, Colin Firth,Hugh Grant & Huw Edwards.
