Weather to Below the Horizon


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I know all is still WIP, and a lovely work it is, but I'd just like to request that the end product actually has the weather setup in a mission extend all the way to below the horizon. If it's very overcast and the horizon in all directions is a bright stripe of sky it just looks silly.

I think that’s going to be tough when DCS World is flat. 

 

^ This.

 

The problem is that DCS treats the world as flat.

Modules I own: F-14A/B, F/A-18C, Supercarrier, F-16CM, AJS-37, F-5E-3, MiG-21bis, Ka-50, A-10C (+ A-10C II), UH-1H, Mi-8MTV2, P-47D, P-51D, FC3, MiG-15bis, Yak-52, CA, C-101, Hawk

Terrains I own: Syria, The Channel, SoH

 

System (RIP my old PC): Dell XPS 15 9570 w/ Intel i7-8750H, NVIDIA GTX 1050Ti Max-Q, 16GB DDR4, 500GB Samsung PM871 SSD (upgraded with 1TB Samsung 970 EVO Plus SSD)

Is it? Haven't I seen screenshots of people reaching ultra-high altitudes in Mig-29s, up to about 80k feet+, in which you can clearly see the roundness of the earth?

 

Anyway, even if that were something DCS does only at extremely high altitudes and closer to the ground the geometry of the earth is a flat plain, you can still have the weather at least appear to touch the horizon at what would be the geographical the horizon, so that there are no ugly, silly looking, bright-sky stripes on the horizon at all times, even when the weather is set to overcast 8 with rain.

The curvature is a visual effect only. But yeah, I agree with you, the bright border under the clouds, that extends to infinity, looks very jarring.
