    None of the fog/mist weather options work at night when playing service mode, I have tested this on both routes and with all available trains.

    I didn't check all the various services, as that would have taken hours, but I did test it on a good amount of them, with the same result.

    Same Settings, but at 01:40.

    I also noticed that the visibility is different depending on season. Summer fog and autumn mist has slightly different visibility range, thought that might be intentional. There's also no option for fog/mist during spring season

    I haven't read about anyone else having this problem, so it would be great if someone could test it out on their games too

    I would like to add to this that fog on clear weather is far too dense. There should be no fog at all, yet with a bit of good camera placement, it becomes quite clear just how close fog is on a "clear" day. Almost seems like it is there to hide distant terrain from you...and it is not a draw distance setting thing either, even with that set to max fog is still there.

    Edit: here's what some camera hax can show for fog on a "clear" day:

    By American standards at least, that's a pretty darn foggy day. Visibility of only around 3 miles like that would be significantly worse than the usual 10 miles.

    Agreed the "clear day" fog is really annoying. Probably used to control draw distances and mask object pop up.

    That clear sphere around player looks like "We don't know how to stop fog from showing inside the cab, so let's make that no-fog sphere three cab sizes in diameter and be done with it"

    It's a shame that fog doesn't work at night.

    I've been working the GWE services in a strong Autumn rain because I love the atmosphere and I wanted to do the CSX services under blizzard conditions for the atmosphere but blizzard looks all wrong at night because the fog is missing.

    Then on Sand Patch night fog is white, which ruins any sense of darkness :/ Fog is there at night, but it just blackens out everything, not makes it glow.

    Yeah, well I reported the bug to Dovetail and sent a screen shoot. They should hit me back soon. I hope they release a patch.

    I have also had this problem, and as I can see, it isn't solved yet and several months have passed, almost becoming a year now. This is something that really annoys me, and quite honestly, destroys the joy in playing. I love night atmospheres and I love fog, if those two can't be used it's unfortunate and really a game killer :/
