Is there a way to freeze time in P3D? I only want to fly at Dawn/Dusk

Recommended Posts

These are the 2 times I enjoy flying the most in the sim. Is there a way I can freeze time and not have it dynamically change?

I use the time preview function and slide it to either dawn or dusk, then leave it open and drag it to the bottom of the screen so just a sliver of its visible to grab.   When it starts to get too far past the time I like to fly, I click on it (so its in focus) and use the left/right arrow keys to move the time to where I want it.

Very simple and effective.

I know what you mean, Aaron. I would like to be able to fly at all times of the day, but have the lighting no brighter than it is when the Sun is only a short distance above the horizon. The lighting effects at dawn/dusk are so much more atmospheric than the rather "harsh" lighting in broad daylight. It also helps to mute some of the over saturated colours that are present in various areas of my UK VFR Photographic Scenery.
