The sun

Recommended Posts

I am not happy with the sun of the P3D. I tried to resize it and the result was a little better. But still the sun just don´t look realistic, it is like a pale disc in the sky. I installed the simple sun mod from the library but it didn´t make much difference.

Any suggestions? How can I get a more realistic sun? (The bright and yellow like it should be!)

there are various sun mods around. One is by Envtex. I also believe PTA can do same. The REX products also have that capability.

It’s pointless showing you as unless you move south you will never see it :biggrin:

It's either, A. a very poor daily newspaper read by people - and I mean 'read' in the loosest of terms - with an average reading age of 13 years old, or (if you are one of those flat earth nut jobs) B. it's a small bright disk approximately 3,000 miles above us which never sets below the edges of the flat Earth's gigantic ice wall which stops the sea from falling off, but instead rotates around our flat disk Earth shining down like a magic spotlight (and no, I'm not joking, there are people who actually believe that, despite the fact that airliners just 7 miles above us are quite obviously lit from below at dawn and dusk - mentioning that to them will annoy them incidentally).

Or, if you prefer, C. it is a big ball of glowing hot gases which is 93 million miles away from the Earth, but approximately 7,000 times that distance away from Scotland owing to a weird anomaly in the space-time continuum. This makes it invisible to the naked eye in Glasgow, or at least that is what it felt like on Monday when I was there.

I purchased ENVTEX. The sun is much better now. Not bright enought to be highly realistic but much better. Thanks.

Definitely better to forget the first one, absolute rag ran by a lowlife.
