Hi GeneralDynamics,

It was a simple mission I made departing Nellis in a F-5E at noon. These screens were taken while flying in the Rift and the difference looked even more dramatic in-game.

Here is the view within a few moments of mission start:

Then here is after about a minute of sitting on the runway:

All shots are from one mission over 2-3 minutes.

Over those 2 minutes the sky goes from nearly white to a well-defined horizon and excellent looking daytime lighting (very realistic to my eyes for a sunny day at noon).

I'm not sure why it changes, but I have observed this for nearly all missions I have flown thus far. Also, pausing doesn't seem to allow change, just while the sim is running.

I've never seen anything like this before, but things look really great once it settles down.
