The sky's Color during a storm is very Unreal (Blue)
Closed, ResolvedPublic


I was playing the Arma 3 Alpha and I turned the weather to very stormy, cloudy, a lot of lightning, and tons of fog. This weather was set to only get worse. I was swimming around and noticed that the sky (during the large storm) was bright blue like a sunny day. This may not be too big of a problem, but I just wanted to let you know.

this looks like the ring of blue around the players location

Yes, it is blue, and looks very unrealistic because it is in the sky, and it is raining.

Presumably, the blue sky would/should not be visible as the cloud cover would hide the blue sky in bad weather.

The clouds seem to be layed out in virtical colums all parallel with eachother. Perhaps another element is missing / inoperable but from time to time you can clearly see blue through the storm clouds (overcast).

The fog should be changed by now

Please let us know if you are still able to reproduce this issue in latest Development build. Thank you.

If you are, please provide screenshot with your weather settings

Issue is still not solved. I can confirm that wherever the player is underwater while the weather conditions are as shown in the 3rd screenshot, the lighting will be one that represents a clear weather.

This has been fixed.
