    Please stop mixing up discrimination and domination, okay?!


    A lot of the topics here are in german, because the majority here obviously speaks German!


    Discrimination would be, if users of other languages would be excluded from the game or its community - which is absolutely not the case! The other way around here is the case: if you would make English to be mandatory in this forum, you would left behind all these people who simply don’t unterstand other languages than german. They even will not participate in this thread, for the same reason.


    So please stop with this discrimination nonesense, i may be a Bit sensitive whenever people who are clearly NOT discriminated try to go with this route... this is absolute unfair for everyone out there that is really discriminated for whatever reason!


    Even the developers made clear that English content is very very welcome, and encouraged us to make existing thread available in both languages, translate existing content in English where applicable.


    Is this really what you like to call „discrimination“?! Seriously?!!

    In my opinion you are pushing this a bit too hard.

    Even if this may sound rude (but is not supposed to) I don‘t care how important the influence and role of english in estonia or norway is.


    Your impression (that everyone speaks english) is very subjective, and also wrong!

    Smaller countries like Estonia are limited in their own possibilities and therefore rely on others. They are dependent on others that much, that the own language does not always make sense here. Because again, they are also too small to be always considered internationally.


    Estonia have a population of around 1.2 Million People. Even if you count the finish-spoken countries in, it will be a minority.


    On the Other hand, German is spoken in Germany, Austria, and huge parts of Switzerland 66%).

    In Summary, there are 97.6 Million People who are native German speaker.


    So, because german is very common. people never got in need to rely on a other language, because books, articles, products and whatsoever where always produced in the german language too. in the past, english was not teached in schools - people over the age of 45 often have very little to none english experience!


    Have you ever been in countries like Spain, and tried to communicate in english there? you are lost! Even in a metropolis like barcelona, you are not able to speak to a cab driver at the international airport! They are

    proud of their language, and simply not in the need to use other languages for whatsoever reasons, like explained before, there is a huge variety of spanish tv productions, products and on and on, or at least the product got translated to spanish - so it the same as with german, only with the fact that we absolutely have no chance to unterstand everything that’s in spanish, and vice versa.


    That’s all regarding to popularity. The other important role here, is the Market.

    Especially germans are highly addicted to the simulator genre, like Train/Bus/Truck/flight simulation. Language does not count here - it’s just about what people like, and what people buy. And here, this country is an important factor. The UK are into it as well. That’s also why you have some Big Vendors like Aerosoft, or all the relevant Game Studios in the genre in the german or uk area. Here, the People are interested in that stuff! even the big webshops like simmarket (if you are into flightsim) are german.


    Combine these two keyfactors, the popularity of the Language, and the interest in the Market, and you will see why it’s a big factor to speak german, or why on the other hand it is not a factor (for the majority) to speak english.


    As i said before, your impression of the importance to use an international language is not correct.


    But, you will always get help here (in english), if you create a topic or reply to one. Also the official content (which also is very incomplete in german due to the fact that it’s still in its creation) is available in english. But please do not force people to only communicate in english. For a lot of users, this is simply not possible, and they would not participate in this. It’s not a practical way, nor the right solution. I think i made clear why.

    I've had the exact same behavior some time ago, also only happening when a NormalMap was applied. Tangent info was applied before ofcourse.

    Unfortunately i do not know how (or if) i solved it. It took me some time. I think i changed the way how i exportet the Maps, (nvidia exporter, intel, etc) and also their format.

    Maybe you could give it a try. I remember that it was really annoying, cause i had to try several things, and could not exactly tell where this weird behavior came from.

    So you want to use both monitors as a single one, but with a custom View/Camera Position?

    Thats not Possible at the Moment, cause all Views are fixed. You can only Pan the Camera around, but can not change the Camera Position in the View.

    You have to set your Monitor Settings from Span (makes two sepearate monitors to one big Monitor) to Seperate and individual Monitors. (Windows or Graphic Card Control Center)

    Then Lotus will Run on your Main Monitor only.

    Your Textures do not have MipMaps, which are essential for displaying the textures with lower resolutions. Add MipMaps to your DDS Files, and everything should be fine :)


    With the recent update the Settings for Texture Resolution got lowered a bit as default. Thats why this seems to occour out of nowhere, because your DDS Textures allow only to be displayed correct at their native resolution (highest Texture quality setting).

    I've not installed your Objects yet, but what i have seen on your screenshots so far, your Houses are really nice modelled and textured.
    So thanks for your work and effort, and for sharing this with us!

    Good idea. I would suggest to toggle between these modes (Normal with regular Mouse Cursor and primary Mouse Control, or the Mouseview Option) via shortcut (like ö in Omsi) and to have a little white dot in the center of the screen which will be the active area/spot for mouse interaction as used in other games with this type of Mouse control.

    These are the Values:
