Accurate & Detailed Sky Model
This simulator implements extremely accurate time of day modelling with correctly placed sun, moon, stars, and planets for the specified time and date. It can track the current computer clock time in order to correctly place the sun, moon, stars, etc. in their current and proper place relative to the earth. If it’s dawn in London right now, it’s dawn in the sim right now when you locate yourself in virtual London.
The sun, moon, stars, and planets all follow their correct courses through the sky. This modelling also correctly takes into account seasonal effects, so you have 24 hour days north of the Arctic circle in the summer, etc. It also illuminate the correctly placed moon with the correctly placed sun to get the correct phase of the moon for the current time/date. In summary, if it's happening in real life, it's also happening in this sim!
Multiply Displays Supported
Built in support for driving multiple displays from a single instance of the application. In addition, it also has a native networking protocol that can be used to drive multiple displays on multiple computers from a single master computer. The Matrox TripleHead2Go box (MTH2G) are supported as well. When used with MTH2G, it's possible to create 3 cameras on a single window and adjust to view parameters for each camera to account for the real world separation between your displays.
Exclusive autoplay menu (PC only), provides you with easy access to installation guide, software manual, email support and more!
