News: Shade Shifter Version 2 Update

Quite busy these days and I don’t even have time to fly.   Anyway, a minor update to version 2 of Shade Shifter will be coming soon.

It will allow the loading of last chosen Preset automatically without going to the Preset selection screen.   This feature was requested by Riccardo.

    Could you please comment on this… about AS2012, which I recently bought and am learning how to use effectively. Is it the case that when AS2012 runs and feeds in its cloud graphics, it will over-write the ShadeShifter preset? I am very pleased with some of the AS2012 cloud sprites, particularly the cirrus and the Cu, some of which look towering and very ‘cumuliform’ like Cu-Nim, even better than REX2 (IMHO) with no disrespect intended to REX at all.


    1. Hi Phil,
      Shade for FSX only changes atmospheric files for the 10-day cycle in FSX only. Files replaced (or temporarily replaced) by Shade for FSX are stored under the texture folder of FSX. I didn’t upgrade to AS2012. However, they should be independent from each other. Please see my Post 107 ( for more information about the files replaced by Shade for FSX. AS2012 is newer than REX and probably uses a different technology to create cloud texture, etc. Also, it’s very much depending on personal preferences. REX announced updates to be coming soon. So just wait and see.
