Re: Enhanced Sky

Post by ifkopifko »

Hi there guys, long time no see/read.

While trying out the first Beta release (release 0.11.0; Win64 build), I have noticed the Enhanced Sky mod gets broken when following conditions are met:
1. Retro mode rendering is turned on (doesn't matter whether with or without the additional retro features like palletisation etc.
2. The Large HUD is set to docked mode (LargeHUDDocked = True)

and

3. When you switch Fullscreen in-game, the Sky gets broken. It gets fixed after you restart DFU, but breaks again if you switch Full-screen again. So if you started the game with fullscreen turned on, it breaks when you turn it off, and vice versa. It's not a big problem, you simply should not touch the fullscreen option during a play session... just set your preference and leave it be. :D


On a side note to this wonderful mod, now that I played DFU after a looooong pause, it strikes me that the colour of the sky does not correlate with the overall scene lighting. Especially during summer (green grass everywhere) at midday (full sunlight). The scene is brightly lit with sunshine, but the sky is quite dark with some clouds... the sky is a lot darker then the world, and it looks out of place. Not sure whether there was any change in lighting in DFU recently (hah, with "recently" I mean something like a year or so... :D ), or maybe it's just my eyes...

I've noticed it being broke after I go to the controls screen and then return to gameplay. The sky does that vanilla "warping" effect but keeps the enhanced sky textures.

Do you also have Distant Terrain installed?

No, I have tried it with only the enhanced sky mod installed to make sure it is not some interaction.

As reported on Subreddit there's an issue with this mod when the large HUD is visible.

In normal rendering mode (not retro rendering), it doesn't adjust to viewport size change:

It gets worse in retro rendering mode, sky gets black with landscape trails:

I guess that changing viewport will be an issue for any mod that uses its own cameras (Distant Terrain and Telescope mods are probably also affected). The recently added (in dev, for now) large HUD toggle event could be useful to adjust parameters.

For the latter case, my guess is that DFU now changes of rendering texture later than it used to.
