    Hi chaps,

    Here's a question I've not been able to find a conclusive answer to: how d'ya raise or lower the horizon (mountains) in rFactor?

    I'm fairly sure that it's the skyboxi.gmt in the .scn file and possibly varying the associated "Pos=" values, but not quite sure what do to with them.

    Regards, R

    Pos=(0.0,-15.0,0.0) are the values for Longford. -15 is lower by 15 units (meters i guess). so i guess it's left/right, up/down, forward/back. The middle part is what you want.

    I've been tinkering with this for a while and I've begun to think there's a bug in the horizon positioning variables mentioned above.

    Tried to reposition the skybox/horizon for GTR2, but although the "Pos=(0.0 etc" values do work for *rotating* this (second set of pos values), they don't seem to do anything if I try it in the firstmost set of values (first 'Pos' entry'), which I supposed was for changing height and position.

    Anyone able to confirm/deny this? Note that even if I put in some drastic values, the horizon didn't change at all. But horizon *rotating* did work.
