Artificial Visibility Reduction by ASN in Prepar3D

Recommended Posts

Overall I really like the immersion ActiveSky Next brings to Prepar3D (v 2.2 in my case) but one "feature" drives me absolutely crazy - ASN's insistence on adjusting global visibility when it senses you have entered a cloud.

 

The effect is clearly illustrated (and criticized) at 9:24 (and again at 12:25) in Froogle's video here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YSylDlkcBCk.  While he doesn't realize it this effect is from ASN (which you can clearly see running on his taskbar) and does not happen natively without ASN injecting weather into P3D.

 

Froogle goes on to compliment Prepar3D's native handling of clouds and visibility (at 10:55) and this brings me to my point - this effect may be advantageous with FSX but it is quite jarring and unnecessary in Prepar3D actually detracting from otherwise excellent visuals.

 

In the video's comments one person indicated this effect will be selectable (able to be disabled) in a future version of ASN.  Is this correct?  Also is there any way to disable the effect currently?

Hi,

 

I agree with you. In cloud visibility reduction is even further improved in 2.3 by default so we'll make the needed adjustments.
