This package will enhance the sun effects in FSX and add simulated volumetric light rays extending from the corona. It's designed to work with and without light bloom and be dynamic with the time of day, altitude, clouds and the level of atmospheric humidity content. The elements which light bloom enhance have been reworked so bloom is not overpowering and should display in proper scale. By Nick Needham.

I have FSX Steam with Rex Skyforce 3D installed, so the sun textures in use are one of the twenty available in Skyforce. I downloaded your Sunfix, removed the textures and config. file from one of the Skyforce sun texture options, and replaced them with your Sunfix textures and config. file.

I cannot get anything like the effects shown in your screenshots - no extended sun rays coming out of the corona, the sun just appears the same as before. Are your screenshots from Prepar3D? As this can make use of DX11HD which FSX cannot.

Any thoughts and comments you have would be greatly appreciated.

Best Regards,

Stewart Flett.
