What happened to my aircraft shadows?

Recommended Posts

Cast shadows on the ground is checked.... apparently you don't get them in gray skies....I changed weather to fair and they came back. Hmm, maybe they could make them present but lighter in gray weathershadwoswtf.jpg

Ryan,That's the thing though....you don't really get shadows when it's grey and overcast.

I like this feature of FSX. In FS9 I was always irritated by the dark shadow under my plane even in pouring rain.

Sounds like we need a shadow intensity slider :)Etienne

>Soft edge shadows should be very apparent even in foggy>overcast conditions. ACES seem to think otherwise :( >>http://www.airliners.net/photo/Hello/McDon...0-30/1327700/L/True, shadows are present under large objects, EVEN in cloudy or foggy conditions. The picture above, and many others, prove that shadows don't disappear under such overcast conditions - they are clearly present, although slightly reduced in contrast intensity and softer at the edges.It would be great if ACES could render the shadows more realistically in cloudy and foggy conditions, as mentioned above, instead of removing them altogether.
