Are you a real pilot?
Have you ever flown at 10,000 feet in a real airplane?
Have yopu seen the color for yourself at 10,000 feet in a real airplane?

Yes-Im real, yes, even at 40,000 ft, its just the TROPSPHERE and yes...I also live part time at 9,300 FT.Its very Light,NOT DARK AT ALL.. because its still the troposhpere.. Obviously you are NOT a pilot?

Wow VFS-214 Hawk, grow the hell up. Have you ever flown in an airliner, its not 10,000FT, its 10,000Meters

reality check!

I've flown in the Airbus A319. The sky at 11000m is anything but dark. Maybe I'll have a digicam next time.

I wonder if it's soething hard coded into the game or whether it's relatively easy and simple to alter.

Could be a repeat of the unfixable muzzle flash issue; i.e. it CAN be fixed, but would require some major rejigging of things to do it.

I would like to see it altered, but I wonder if it can be done (or at least could be done easily).

I've been banging this drum for years.

Screw the allegedly dodgy physics up there...it's just a colour change we need.

Bump.

Flown up to 20,000 myself (in control) and up to FL 350 as a passenger. It's not dark outside (quite bright when the sun is shining, actually . . .)

It really bothers you THAT much?

It IS kinda ****ed up that you can see the stars at 30k feet + 1200. I don't care what anybody says on that point, it's FUBAR.

The "poll", such as it is, does ask:

<BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-title">quote:</div><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-content"> Poll Question:
The sky is way to dark in this sim, at high altitudes (10,000 ft +).Should it be lightened in the next patch, or a NEW PATCH just to have it lightened up?
As you can see, the Troposphere, an early stratosphere, are lighter blue. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

I'd rather it be more realistic, but loaded tantrum polls don't really help anything. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif

And I'm pretty sure Oleg needs more than that super accurate pic. Is he going to load it into MS Paint, sample and fill? C'mon.... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

hehehehe got ya!!

Yes I am a pilot and yes I do agree...it is kinda dark at 20k in the game.

Its kind of interesting how folks take a question personaly. All I did was ask a few questions in order to get some facts.

bothers me that they wasted time coding a different sky for 'high' alt when it would have been better all round to just not bother.

Some people have shown pictures of 30,000 feet or somewhere around 10,000 meters. The sky is a bit darker than on the ground but its only a few shades different.

I like the games shading of the sky changing but I think its probably a bit overdone.
