Time of Day ?

Where might I be able to edit time of day ?

I’d like to position my sun a little differently than the default in first person C++ blueprint mode…

I have the window open but cannot locate any sort of TOD options…

You would need to set this up if you want to be able to enter a time of day and have it work that way. The way you do it now is by manually rotating the directional light to update your time of day.

On YouTube there are whole host of time of day tutorials from simple Blueprints one to writing one in C++.

Here’s one on the Wiki Tutorials page.

Atmosphere Fog User Guide : This will give you settings to get specific looks. Worth at least a look.

A search through our Docs.UnrealEngine.com which searches documentation, answerhub, forums, etc is a good resource as well with a lot of forums related to the topic.

I hope this helps. If you have any questions feel free to ask!


Another user has made a fairly impressive time of day blueprint you can try out by downloading.
