A cloud question...

Recommended Posts

Hi all,Just re-installed Fly!II and was playing around when I noticed that even in total darkness, the clouds are still white(ish).Searched the archived threads and could find no mention of it. Is it me or is it a known issue. Any tweaks in the ini file improve this ?Does anyone know of a general fly.ini tweak guide anywhere ?ThanksChris Ehttp://website.lineone.net/~flightsimukAvoid AGP texturing = Better Performance ;)

Hi Chris, I believe patch 230 attempted to make a minor change to the clouds and thier overly white appearance - making them a tad darker. You can also download and try Jure's cloud sets (he's created several - Big Mammas are best) and use them. Can find those in the AVSIM Fly!! Library.Cheers!Ken WoodCNN International Weather

Thanks for your responce Ken,I already have patch 230 installed but they are still far too white. I have already downloaded some replacement clouds and skies but haven't tried any of them yet. I will now.Thanks again...Chris Ehttp://website.lineone.net/~flightsimukAvoid AGP texturing = Better Performance ;)

Actually, the 230 patch added white to make them look more realistic. Before, they were always too grey and gloomy-looking. I agree with this approach as they actually weren't white enough before.Now, as far as to their changing color mattering on time of day, conditions, etc. I don't believe that is a function that has been added yet. It may be possible to make a new cloud set just for that purpose.

...Hi.... it is possible to change the darkness in Fly.ini at this line......lightScalarDusk=50lightScalarDawn=50lightScalarDay=100lightScalarNight=25 <---- If you set this line at zero the clouds will be completely dark... :-waveCheers .... Ivan Italy
