Sky is broken in ALS

In FG 3.0, the sky is broken when ALS is enabled:

Will this be fixed in 3.2?

wasn't that just for the normal rendering mode?

I don't think so, I think it was just a 3D object they were creating in the sky as a backdrop, which the active rendering framework could then paint onto. I also think the issue existed before ALS existed (aka several years ago), meaning it's probably a common part of the feameworks (especially since it was in C++ code).

But normal rendering mode in 3.0 does not have this problem, and ALS does. Wouldn't this mean it is ALS-specific?

Although is could mean it is ALS specific it is more likely that it just means that the problem is more apparent in ALS. I believe that this was fixed during the 3.2 development cycle and that the fix had nothing to do with ALS.

It was a flaw in the geometry which ALS probed in more detail than default.

Bottom line is, yes, this is fixed. In 3.2 and Git.
