How do you make the sun smaller?

Recommended Posts

Friends, This was addressed a couple of years ago, or so. But I can't seem to bring it up on the search engine. I'd love to reduce the circumference of the sun. I think its been done, but I can't find the post(s). Does anyone know? Thank you, Steve

And also how to render the sun in stereoscopic 3D. I get fed up with seeing 2 of them all the time.

Thanks very much, "glen1958." I downloaded that file, but I have not installed it yet. In the screenshots, the sun looks MUCH better, but I can't tell for sure if it has been reduced in diameter. It doesn't look like it is, to me. Do you know if it shows up smaller, as well? If so this would be the perfect solution. I would like a nice looking sun with the rays, but S M A L L E R at the same time.

Steve, I don't think it realy changes the size of the Sun, but it changes the size of the rays and corona around the sun so it is more realistic lookingglen

Thanks Glen, I agree completely. I really appreciate you sharing that file with me. I may well use it. But still, I'm almost certain, that someone had a file modification to make the sun smaller. Anyone out there have that ... or remember??

As does X Graphics.A third party program to change this is highly recommended. X Graphics changes the sun texture per the weather conditions of your flight via Active Sky. Perhaps REX does the same. Thus I get strong rays around the sun on sparkling clear days, or a muted glowing 'orb' on overcast days, and everything in between.I don't even remember what the default sun texture looks like. :(
