There are some good freeware programs that will give you nicer skies. Check the file section.There are also payware programs, like Flight Environment, about $25, which I just bought, which give gorgeous sunrises and sunsets, as well as magnificient clouds and sky colours.

I've maxxed everything out. But still blue blue blue.Anyway, i downloaded that one addon which was a compilation of other sky addons and then all was swell. A sunset feels like a sunset now.

It's a good idea to make a backup of your original sky textures too, as some of the freeware packages can be a bit too saturated in colour for people's tastes.I'd also put in a vote for Flight Environment. Excellent program!

I am not sure if this falls in this subject or not, but I always liked the golden yellow effect on the aircraft before dusk. In fs2002, you got it starting around 3:45-4:00pm around Socal, In Fs9 it seems to be around 4:15-4:30pm which the sim seems darker than in real life to have this effect. Is there a way to get this into fs9? Any info would be great.Thank You,Kurt

As I understand it the sunset lighting colour is derived from the predominant colour in the sunset texture itself.
