Is there a way to adjust

Recommended Posts

the blue of the sky in FSX? I find it too blue and not enough gray unless at FL. Thanks.

Aside from changing the weather, probably the only way to change the sky color is to modify the textures. I think that John Cillis did this for FS 9 - those modified textures should be in the Avsim library. Perhaps they will work for FS X.Best regards.Luis

Edited the sky textures in photoshop with a lighter shade of blue and I find the result way more convincing. Too bad we don't have a utility, like Fly! had, I think, which allows you to tweak the colors. Even better if it could be weather driven (high humidity, more diffuse, etc...)

That looks excellent and extremely realistic.Perhaps you would consider releasing those files for all others who could be interested.Best regards.Luis

Plus, it's just the "sky noon" series of textures edited in Photoshop with -25% saturation and +20% brightness. Whcih people might want to change to their own taste, season, time of day etc... Now, a GUI utility that could do that on the fly, or even better, depending on the atmospheric conditions (temp, humidity), as BOPrey suggested on the other forum, that would be worth publishing!
