Sun reflection offset on water surface

9 posts in this topic

No biggie but it seems the reflections of the sun on water surface are misaligned...

X-Plane controls the reflected sun on water. What you're seeing is our sun model based on the closest year in time to which Laminar uses for their reflections (about 2014). Every now and again you'll likely find a quirk like this.

If it bothers you, you can change the sky colors back to default in SMP's configuration screen for now. That will also restore X-Plane's default sun and moon.

Planet X ! lol...

The cloud sunset color timing seems off, but maybe that because we have two suns.

This might happen if you switch sky color sets in the SMP configuration without restarting the sim (the config screen tells you that's needed.)

So, in the end, who should look up for a fix to this issue? X-Aviation or Laminar ? Your sky model is beautiful and it would be great to get that fix, instead of disabling it to default sky colors.

Laminar needs to create an astronomical model that simulates some known time before we can match it exactly.
