Standard zip file of the current trunk with the latest (and probably best so far) fix for issue 204 for test by Cody or anyone who feels adventurous enough: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BwG6R5 ... sp=sharing

The cloud layer is indeed gone when shader atmosphere is used.
I do like the new atmosphere effect but if I had to choose betwen the two then it would be the clouds that I'd favour.
OK, update. The cloud layer is back and currently under testing. The samples below were made with ambient lighting level set to 0.15 using standard (non-OXP'd) planets and you can see that we now can have both shader and procedural generated atmospheres (i.e. cloud layer) at the same time.

Not in the nightly yet, but should hopefully be very soon.

You can play with the new code even before it hits trunk if you build from the atmosphere-improve github branch.

I've just had another crash, right after starting Oolite (as I keyed down to the manager) - nothing in the log.

Thanks, works great.

I've enabled 2:1 ratio and 4096x4096 resolution for planetary textures. They look better near the station at a reasonable cost for extra-details capable machines. I myself have a relatively modest i3, and the "hiccup" on texture generation is noticeable but acceptable, imo.

Does the atmosphere line look right in this image?

I'd say is quite close to this*:

[*] your ambient light might vary.
On a more serious note, this was not meant to resemble the accurate atmospheric shaders you'd find in (e.g.) SpaceEngine or other game engine incarnation -- it was more of a quick hack easy to implement in Oolite.

And a very nice 'quick hack' it was too! That's a system I know well, which is why it struck me as odd. Later last night, I remembered that I'd added a butchered version of Zygo's Sky, so perhaps his sun/corona makes it appear slightly different.

Wow, they did it again!
Silently pushed a new but visible feature in the nightly: you'll see the shader used on the F7 screen!

Bringing nightly server down to mount a couple of new cooling fans.
I'll edit here with updates.

Edit 2017.03.26 21:00
Fans replaced successfully. Some heuristics were needed with the power supply fan,
since the old one was a 2-cable soldered on board, while the new one was a 3-cable one with the well known 3-pin plug.
I took the opportunity to initiate a backup operation too, considering the server already being brought down.
I'll update here as soon as it's done.

Edit 2017.03.26 23:30
Done.
