Sky and Time of Day Settings

These settings determine the appearance of the sky, moon, and the current time of day.

Sky type
Click the picture of the sky to choose a new one. In the Choose Artwork dialog that will appear, the picture in the bottom left will cycle between the daytime, sunrise, sunset, and evening variations.

Moon style
Select the style of moon you would like to see during a Realtime Walkthrough at night. To disable the moon, set the style to None.

Time of day
Select the desired time of day you would like to see in the Perspective view.

North direction
The north direction determines the position of the sun, which affects the angle of shadows in the Perspective view. The north direction also determines the relative directions of survey bearings when using the Lot Boundary object.
