Editing Water Colors in X-Plane 10

Recommended Posts

Before you try anything, you're going to need this handy plugin: http://www.xsquawkbox.net/xpsdk/mediawiki/DataRefEditor

The figures that I show are only guidelines. Really, it comes down to personal preference and experimentation  ;)

 

Note: These setting will reset to default when you close X-Plane. Go to this thread to find out how to keep the settings http://forum.avsim.net/topic/433908-experimenting-with-art-controls-raleigh-scattering/

 

First, open up the "Art Controls" in XP.

You'll get this confusing window of green writing. Scroll down to where you see these three entries. I highlighted "deep2_b" as this is the one you'll probably only use.

Here's a dramatic example of what is possible   :O

However, for realism I've changed the blue line to about 0.45

It gives a slightly more convincing blue tinge.

Here's a comparison of before and after...

Nice find.

 

For your convenience you can create a little script and load it with the modified settings directly on xplane start-up. You need FlyWithLua Plugin for this.

It's discussed here as well: http://forum.avsim.net/index.php?/topic/433908-Experimenting-with-art-controls-(Raleigh-scattering)

 

Thanks Jakob!

That's been added to the main post.

Thank you ;)
