Instance Property


The cloudiness or haziness of the simulated sky.


var turbidity: Float { get set }


A value of 0.0 simulates a clear sky—that is, the sun has little effect on the color of the sky around it. Values closer to 1.0 simulate increasing amounts of dust and moisture in the sky, causing the sun’s color to spread across the atmosphere.
