    Sunlight coordinates

    How to use it? I tried different numbers, but I can not get the desired result. I have a very dark level, and I would like to highlight the roofs of tall buildings a little (this is so pale light from the stars).

    If you don't already have one, place a moon celestial object in the sky where you want the light coming from. You can remove it later if you want, but it's so you have the right latitude and longitude of the object to calculate the sunlight vector.

    Then, go to NV's Sunlight Calculator and enter in the latitude and longitude and it will tell you the vector's X, Y and Z to enter in for the sunlight in Dromed.

    NV's Sunlight Calculator? Sounds interesting, thank you.

    I love trig as much as the next guy (actually a lot more than most people), but even I wouldn't bother doing the calculations manually if I have a simpler option available.
