Did you fix the shadow flickering when using timeofday?

@ Duion: what flickering?

@ Zweshi: That's looking really nice. The sound of the waves lapping on the coast really add to it.

One trick you can look at messing with for those heavily overcast situations is adjusting the sun's overdark factor. This darkens the shadows, but if you lower the number, it will make them less dark, to where they're pretty transparent - which is a bit closer to how it'd look with a heavily overcast sky. Just a suggestion :)

EIther way, it's looking pretty noice!

The shadows flicker when they move through time of day, because of the Torque fizzle fade.

@ Jason Campbell Thank you!

@ JeffR Thank you for suggesting the overdark factor parameter Jeff, its definitly something we have on our list for the next fine-tune pass of post-fx/shadows etc. good looking out!

@ Duion Refinement of shadows and how they relate to time of day is something we are going to look into more closely later on in the project as we progress through the fine-tune passes.

@ deathbravo "the sand looks so torque style" - I hope thats a good thing ;).

Cheers
- Jonas
