Cloud Shadows 1.6

Recommended Posts

There is a new release 1.6


The following enhancements/fixes


  • Fix for Top Down View which showed odd looking shadows
  • Metar shading is more responsible for first 30 seconds  of a flight to better handle delayed injection by weather engines
  • Metar Shading now applies to water and autogen
  • Shadows are hidden when paused and aircraft casts shadow on self is not set

Note that Aircraft Casts Shadow on Self is no longer essential for cloud shadows.


Also adds a slider to set the cloud coverage at which the metar feature is first used.


Note that the version available prior to 23:20 GMT failed to update v1.5  This was because there is a limit on the number of deltas that can be applied - the patching program didn't give an error but ignored 1.5 which was the last one added.


If you received an error patching the libraries then to resolve it


  • Uninstall Libraries using controller
  • Uninstall cloud shadows and the fixer
  • Reinstall the fixer
  • Reinstall Cloud Shadows 1.6
  • Install the libraries
  • Upvote 1

Hi Steve,


I unpacked the download, read the installation manual and installed. However I get this error message:


Patching fixer libraries (0). (0)


System error was -1072807676


Any ideas?

Same error popup here.


Edit: I'll try above procedure.


Edit 2: It worked, but needed entering registration info (that was expected), and restoring the config profile (which I assumed might be needed), which I luckily copied to a safe directory first, because C:\Users\Public\Documents\DX10SceneryFixer\ got deleted during uninstall (which was somewhat unexpected).

The fixed for top down view and disabled VC shadows work fine, thank you!
