I love what Shade does for FSX, but I can't get my head around the use of days. My questions all revolve around this. If I load a preset into day 1, is that the day that is injected into FSX? How about if I load a preset into day 4, will that appear now, or does it not until a certain day or month arrives? If I want to change presets each time I fly, do I always select day 1, or should I choose other days? For such an excellent program, I feel like I'm learning a foreign language.
Fire up the gui and load a different preset into each day then take a look at this post on the blog for a link to some FSX save files http://shadeforfsx.b...cles-saves.html
and this post for some more info on the cycle http://shadeforfsx.b...day-cycles.html
basically you can have 10 different days of lighting that will change based upon the day you are flying on it doesnt matter what texture sets you are using default/fex/rex
but if using no env addons your dusk/dawn sky colours will change in a 10 day loop,but if your using FEX/REX you'll have only 1 set of sky colours but you can still use shade to change the lighting on all 10 days,if you just want it to be the same then load a preset into day1 and clone it to days 2-10,or if you want to have diffrent lighting on each day of the 10 day cycle then load a different preset into each day and use the info/save on the blog posts to find what day you'll be flying on
Hope that helps
I'll make up some kind of calendar of word doc for day cycle for the next 12 months when i get the chance
