an XP11 sunset progression

Recommended Posts

I've been enjoying flying into KUNV lately.  Its in PA and a nice flight from either KMTN or KERI.

Nice screenshots. One thing I hope they fix is the transition from each phase of sunset. The light changes suddenly from one phase to the next phase rather than gradually fading which can look unrealistic when suddenly the light dims. I am using Xenviro so not sure it is like that with the standard sunset.

It does it with the default sunset too and its not the transitions that cause it.  It appears to be location specific.

It took me a long time to notice that the light changes were always at the same locations and they always occurred when travelling west AND right at a "longitude plus .650" mark.  On a flight from KMTN to KUNV the lighting will  change twice.  If you take off from KMTN and fly straight towards KBWI, it will happen right over KBWI.

I reported it as a bug during the beta but its not been fixed yet.

I think a similar thing happens when travelling east but at a different place.  I lost interest in trying to track it down at the time.  It makes sunset design tricky.  I can't find anything in either the sky textures or sunglow files that stop it from happening.  The answer may be there but I cant find it.
