Brightness of the sky in VR / desktopmode

Post by Alex » Sun Jun 16, 2019 12:44 am

Hello Simlab,

how do I control the brightness in VR mode? To my knowledge, VR mode responds to different HDR Enviroments for brightness and color of the ambient light. But when i try to increase or lower the HDR-brightness - it does not affect the VR scene ambient light.

What do you suggest? Thank you!

Best regards

From VR properties, you can try to uncheck the option adjust HDR brightness, which caps the value.

Please confirm if this is what you are looking for?

Hello Simlab,

thank you for your answer! I did not notice, that there is just another tab at the environment dialogue box!
Increasing the light offset (2nd value) did work for me :)

Maybe two further wishes.

On my 24" screen, the menu bar is far too big and reaches to my 2nd screen.
On my laptop it is even more complicated, i have to reduce the window and move it to the non-viewable left, so i can reach the far outer menu elements on the right. Maybe make it a bit more narrow / fit the the main screen width?

One last thing:
Simlab does not like german letters for its textures, environments etc. :shock:
This does not work: project/straße/häuser.jpg - will not load
So I have to rename it to project/strasse/buildings.jpg

Maybe it just needs a small fix for that.

Thank you very much! I am excited about Version 10! Is it coming this summer? :D

Best regards!
