Adjusting the amt of light

Recommended Posts

Hi there to allI have a question, I dont know if its possible tho. I live in Yuma, AZ and here it stays light outside for quite a good long time. There will still be light out at around 8Pm. Now, when I am in the fs, at this time, its pitch black by 630-7pm. Is there a way to change the amt of light out in the sim at a given time of day?Thanks

Are you sure you were in the Summer season, and the correct month and day?The amount of sunlight on any given day changes the closer (or further) you get from the Solstices.

When I change it to todays date, it says that it is still in the spring season. When I change it to summer, the date goes to sometime in August. If I try to change it back to May while in summer, it will go back to spring.

In a place like Minneapolis, it will be light to 9pm or even a little later this time of year.> Now, when I am in the fs, at this time, its pitch black by 630-7pm.

If you are in an area that has changed its daylight saving time, it might be pretty inaccurate. You can reportedly edit the amount of ambient light the sim has at night. I say reportedly, because I have never experimented with the settings. They are fsx.cfg file settings if I remember correctly.I think they were in Phil Taylors blog a long time ago.RhettFS box: E8500 (@ 3.16 ghz), AC Freezer 7 Pro, ASUS P5E3 Premium, BFG 8800GTX 756 (nVidia 169 WHQL), 4gb DDR3 1600 Patriot Cas7 7-7-7-20 (2T), PC Power 750, WD 150gb 10000rpm Raptor, Seagate 500gb, Silverstone TJ09 case, Vista Ultimate 64ASX Client: AMD 3700+ (@ 2.6 ghz), 7800GT

woohoo MSP!Yeah I find FSX fairly accurate, you just need it set to the correct season, and month/date etc.
