Hello, so I've bought 2019 now that the cheaper Regional editions are out, however cannot seem to get a nice lighting setup for my route. Would anyone with a UK route be willing to share their environment settings and Post Processing settings with me? I have tried envirnonment settings but things still look too bright and washed out especially at midday. Also is there a way to change how high the sun is at midday?

Thanks,
Mark

I havn't bought TS2019 so can't help you on the lighting. However the height of the sun is dependent on the settings of World Origin on your route. A typical UK latitude would be 52 degrees N which will give you the correct altitude for the sun at the time of the Spring and Autumn equinoxes. Dependent upon the time of year you want your session, the latitude should be set at between 30 degrees N (June) and 75 degrees N (December). Unfortunately the summer and winter days will still have a 6am and 6pm sunrise and sunset! :roll:

At midday I have the Sun and ambient controls all set at around the 2.30 position on the clock and then adjust the slider on the right, post processing I have on low.
Never messed with the developer post processing stuff.

Latitude is correct for location as I use Transdem for my routes, not bothered about the sun.

Thanks for the replies. I have managed to get the lighting much better now, spent a couple of hours playing with different settings and things.
