This release provides a new slider to adjust the METAR feature.
The Offset value determines the cloud coverage in eights at which the Metar option is first applied. This was added in response to feedback that the Metar option worked great in near overcast conditions but was perhaps too exaggerated e.g at 4/8ths and 5/8ths.
The following enhancements and bug fixes are also included:
Fix for top down view which showed clouds as if viewed horizontally(!)
The Metar shading is now more responsive for the first 30 seconds of a flight to make it more reactive to weather injection e.g by ASN or REX weather engines/
Metar Shading now applied to autogen and to water specular sun reflections.
- Shadows are hidden when aircraft self shadowing is not enabled and the flight is paused to avoid the shadows moving with eyepoint.
Note that aircraft casts shadows on self is no longer essential for the display of cloud shadows so long as FSX is not paused.
Note that that initially the update was failing with an error. Whilst I have updated the download to address this, if you downloaded before 23:30 GMT and you had an error then to resolve follow the following process exactly. (Sorry for this…)
- Uninstall libraries.
- Uninstall cloud shadows and Dx10SceneryFixer
- Reinstall the fixer
- Install libraries
- Install 1.6 of cloud shadows.
