Frozen Lakes

Recommended Posts

I am experiencing an unusual scenery problem which I have yet to stumble on a resolution. Hopefully, someone here has had simimlar problems and have successfully resolved them, or perhaps can use their knowledge of FSX and it's addons to determine a possible cause.

 

My smaller inland lakes appear to be frozen over, even in the middle of the hottest summer days. See the attached picture.

I am using:

 

FSX + Acceleration

GEX North America v2.10

UTX Canada v2.0

UTX USA v2.0

REX4 Texture Direct 4.6.2016.0622

Active Sky Next 1.0.6011.15407 Build 6011

DX10 Scenery Fixer v2.11

 

Any thoughts on how I an get my smaller lakes to look less like glaciers or icepacks?

Thank you both for your replies ...

 

If there is an option, I don't know where to find it. I looked, but failed to locate that as an option.

 

Andy, oddly, your link doesn't work. The www.simforum is apparently for sale?

ORBX had that problem too but they provided a checkbox to disable the frozen waterbodies

Yes, that appears to been the problem. It appears it was on 'hard/cold' water settings, ie winter. Changing it to 'wet season' thawed the lakes out.

 

I guess once snowy cold weather returns to my flying destinations, I will need to set it back.

 

Thank you all!
