Flight-like dawn

Recommended Posts

One of the things I missed from MS Flight (after going back to FSX) was the golden dawn. After some fooling around with REX I think I found a dawn texture that comes pretty close to what Flight offered. :wink:

 

In chronological order (I should have made an extra screenshots between the 4th and 5th, really...)

 

(BTW The RealAir Legacy really has great VC-lighting: no matter what time of day, the light always perfectly fits with what you see outside. A lot of other addons have big problems with getting that right and sometimes are almost unflyable due to odd masks and so on during dawn or dusk!)

Parked at my destination. I love it how a LOT of airports in Orbx regions (this one is NRM) have gotten some nice treatment.

I'd say that we could never have a texture set which is good enough, since the lightning conditions / how the sky looks like is different every day and also is different for every country

Dawn progression looks excellent, care to share your REX texture selection?????

 

Dawn = Orange West Coast

Day = New Blue

 

BTW On a sidenote: for full dawn effect in FSX make sure to FIRST select Season, Month and Year and AFTER that select Dawn. The order in that FSX menu isn't logical (Time of day is above Season). If you press Dawn and after that select another day, the dawn time of the previous selected day will still be active and you usually don't see the actual dawn at all. The same goes for Dusk obviously.

Very true. But for now I am happy with REX. :wink: (I have 2.0 btw, not Essentials).
