PTA2 for P3Dv4 : Custom Presets thread

I think it has something to do with runway/taxiway materials that are not fully compatible with P3d4. I tried turning off "cast shadows on terrain" and dynamic reflections, but that didn't seem to matter. I will try earlier versions of your preset and see what happens. I have to figure out what add-on installed these textures and where the default P3d texture files are backed up.

I found a similar thread on the Flightbeam official forum. Flightbeam claims there's a bug in P3d 4.1 related to panning and dynamic lighting:

My v2 preset has been updated as P3D v.1 is slightly different in shaders as v4 :

- bloom adjusted for better effect at dawn-dusk / day / night

- object lighting modified to make it look the same as in P3DV4.0

That is correct : V10 is out 

Only V5 , V5b , V8 and V9 are still up.

Version 10 :

- Clouds Fog Tuning added and tuned to make it look more like looking at the horizon from out of the cockpit  

- There now are 12 version of V10. A different one for each month of the year. ( Clouds lighting difference in each month.)

Info :

From summer to winter the clouds lighting during the day is getting way less than in reality. Therefore the clouds look to dark. Especially in december. Towards winter each monthly preset  has a little more clouds lighting during the day in the montly presets. From januari upwards till june each month has a little less lighting.. The nights were correct already. Now it is balance again.

If you only want one preset for the whole year use june. Otherwise the clouds will become to bright ( white ) during summer.

I completely missed this  - this is exactly what I'm looking for.

Hello again!

I was just wondering if this clouds' color is normal at a late evening. I am using PTA2-Saldo 4_1 v8 Vis 125.ini at the moment.

I don't know but I would expect them to be almost black, just blending with the dark terrain. Am I wrong? 

Thanks! :)

P. S. - no moon.

Hi ,

As long as there is a sun above the clouds  they will not appear almost black.

You can test it by setting time later and see they now are darker.

Like this :

Btw : V10 is out since december
