Makes me want to fly this plane again (I didn't use it for some time - there are so many other nice planes out there B)).

Thanks very much friends,There's a lot of options with this utility and it's highly subject to opinion,and time of day.But getting it just right it can look very realistic IMHO.

Cheers,Thank You all.

Completely agree; the atmospheric effects look great in the day time, less so at dawn and dusk.

Great shots. RTH is a wonderful addon to X-Plane and really transforms the sim. I'm surprised it hasn't been part of X-Plane 10 since day 1.

I think it kind of is, in that it's altering values of datarefs which already exist in the sim. On the original thread started by Pascal_LGSC a year ago Ben asked him to get in touch with their art guys so from that I have a feeling that eventually what RTH does will become part of the default environmental effects.

 

I'm not an environmental scientist but thinking about it one reason why RTH looks great in the day but not so good at night or dawn / dusk is that it shows colour effects from atmospheric scattering caused by air moisture, which is usually denser in the day. Hopefully the art guys at Laminar can factor these sort of changes in to the default settings at some point.

Yep, you're right. It has/is already part of the simulator, it just took a hacker/enthusiast (and I of course mean that in a polite way) to discover these values and play with them. The fact that LR acknowledged his work means I think we'll see something from it in the future. It makes such a big difference to daytime flying, but I found changing values quite often gives me a shader.glsl error and crashes the sim so I generally leave it set and don't play with it.
