Odd Occurrence-- What Happened to the Sun?
Don't know if this just started happening, or it's been happening awhile and I just noticed it last night.
I have an issue where if I fire up the simulator with whatever default flight I have set up-- but have the simulator clock set to read "SYSTEM TIME" instead of "flight time", the sun doesn't show in the sky. All the glare and proper lighting of near sunset at the horizon, proper coloring at diff times of day, etc. will show correctly. But the disc of the sun is missing.
If I go into the date/time adjustment in the sim and change just the time (either H M or S) it won't do any good. But if I change date, year, month, or season, then the sun appears again. From there I can put it back to where I started and it shall display fine.
What's more: If I set the sim clock to open in "flight time" (so it reads whatever the default time was when I saved the flight), then the sun will display as it is supposed to.
I tried ditching the fs9.cfg file and letting it create a new one from scratch, but it did no good.
Any suggestions? Has anyone else noticed this behavior?
