Simul Support ExchangeCategory: Sky and LightingColor of Sun – Sunset/sunrise
Gombor Gábor asked 4 years ago

I’m curious that TrueSky supports the color change of sun in different daytimes?
Atm I have bright white sun in every time, its possible to get red colors in sunset/sunrise? Or I have to code this with a custom sphere?
thanks, Gabor

When I’m using truSKY for UE4, the sun automatically changes tint based on the time of day. What game engine are you using?

Intereresting. I also use UE4 (4.24) but my sun is bright white at sunset and sunrise.

Something might have changed since I last used it, I’ll reinstall the plugin for 4.24 and get back to you.

Ok, here is the plugin out of the box with brightness adjusted:
The sun does turn color very close to sunrise/sunset. As for adjusting the colors, I am not sure how to do that.

Hi. It seems the problem appears if I use own Sun/Directional Light and specify in TrueSkyActor. If TrueSky creates own sun, then its ok. Finally I returned to this usage mode and I customize things in the actor itself.

I believe this issue to be fixed, is this in latest 4.2a?
