Due to the changes in this build i don't have to create different profiles for cockpit and "outside" view. Inspired by the new ISI profiles (Mores, Loch Drummond) I've changed the way how I create the settings. The first thing I do is to figure out the exact times for sunrise and sunset. I calculate the time parameters (hdr profiles work with seconds) and paste the values into an predefined hdr template. To get the timing right in devmode is horrible and it gets even worse when DST (Daylight Saving Time) is enabled.
I make use of the lowest possible whitepoint. The result is a lot of "action" in the sky. This approach has some problems. All bright stuff is in danger to completely blow into the white. Especially affected are dust clouds and water spray in full sunlight and sometimes the clouds in the sky. Some tracks need a lower white point than others (Palm Beach for example) to reach a good looking picture, so the results may differ. Atm I'm very pleased with the look and feel but there maybe bugs under some circumstances (weather settings, wet track in full sunlight, etc.). Please let me know what's wrong.
