How can I create dramatic sunrises and sunsets?

Recommended Posts

When setting up a sunrise or sunset scenario I can't figure out how to create the beautiful and dramatic effects I so often see in screen shots.Can it be achieved in FSX without third party ad ons?Cliff

There are several different color combinations in the textures which varies by the day you are flying. Try changing to a different day and see if it changes. Of course weather settings make a big difference as well.

Thanks for those comments. Can you perhaps enlarge on your noting that "weather settings make a big difference as well"?What sort of selection would you make to hopefully give the results we want?Cliff

What I mean by the weather comment is that the weather can make a big difference, but it's kind of an art. It's not that there is a formula to it, but a dramatic cloudscape will usually result in a more dramatic sunset/sunrise
