About This File

Realistic Sun 1.2.1

This version includes Mustang's Sky.FX for a better lightning and has a fine-tuned Rays.tga.


It also includes the template I used to create the Rays.tga





Copy the 'Bazar' folder into your DCS World installation and allow to overwrite.


Example path :

C:\Program Files\Eagle Dynamics\DCS World


Backup files are provided in 'original file DCS 1.2.0 sun'.



Before/after video:



All intensive test where made with HDR "Normal" and 1920x1080 16:9


- if is this isn't working like on the video for you

and you want to change the point when the darkening of the HDR kicks in:




\Eagle Dynamics\DCS World\Bazar\shaders\sky\




and change in line #49 the "300.0".


to a smaller value = later HDR

or greater value = sooner HDR


use steps of 10.0 and make a test in-game

-than fine-tune it.


Keep in mind that it the HDR effect highly depends of your used FOV (Zoom) and how dark the actual scene is.



Higher the FOV in the external views to take screen-shots with full sun.

Please provide Feedback in this thread:





Many thanks to Mustang for showing me the right place to search for a fix!
