Re: Geolocation & sunshine shadows projection

That thread is 6 yrs old....

At least since version 2.6 (I think) the program takes your geographic location into account.

Please do the following:
- with the program open, hit F1;
- in the search field type compass;
- read the help text;
- come back if you need more help.

And uh... the advanced rendering plug-in is NOT compatible with SH3D since version 3.2.

Re: Geolocation & sunshine shadows projection

Thanks nearly there, for me as I have the French version it's "boussole"

I still want to view the sun's shadows onto the ground not onto the building.

P.S. It should be written in the help that you need so slide the quality cursor to better in order to have the field date&time.

Re: Geolocation & sunshine shadows projection

OK I found, one needs to move away the view point.

Adding this to the help would make it perfect.

Thanks for the help!
