Hi, I'm having a problem with the haze effect being so strong that I can't see the sun.  I'm using PTA 2.11 and I'm still using P3D 3.4.  I lowered all of the settings in the atmosphere and fog section to their lowest settings and I still can't see the sun while on the gulf coast of America at 3500 feet.  Can someone tell me what other parameter I might need to adjust?

Thanks Mark

You are using PTA 2 for P3Dv3 which does not work correctly in P3Dv4.

You need PTA for P3Dv4 starting at 2.50 and is currently at 2.51.

Mark, are you using Volumetric Fog. I noticed if I deselect VF I get a foggy sky. (not blue) However if I use VF all looks normal and I get a nice blue sky.

I don't remember having this issue in P3DV3 but I do in V4 so this may or may not help you in V3.

He wrote that he is STILL using P3Dv4 icw PTA 2.11.

PTA 2.11 does not work with v4 . And because he wrote STILL using v4 I presumed he made a typo and meant V3.

So you are too quick with your reply and it adds nothing to the topic ...

I wrote that I'm still using P3D V3.4.  Sorry for the confusion.  I'm using the VFog but I'll turn it off and see if that makes a difference.

 

edit: thanks Iceman I turned off VF and bingo there was the sun again.

Thanks Mark

I´ve noticed it too in V4 and this is different to V3. Currently I would prefer to fly without VF because at least with using active sky it gives you a almost endless upper visibility when putting the slider above 100. below 100 it extremely foggy with VF activated.

I think the PTA haze effect could compensate this but as far as I know it is currently buggy, isn´t it?

P3D 3.4  is   P3Dv3 though, right?  And hence not compatible with PTA v4 version.

Guess we're all confused haha!   No mind, let's get flying! :biggrin:
