    For XP 11.25+
     
    This script provides dynamic haze/fog control based on reported visibility, providing smooth visibility transitions throughout all phases of flight. This means no "infinite" visibility the higher you get, no abrupt visibility changes and a realistic looking atmosphere based on reported visibility for the area.
     
    Features:

    * Smooth visibility transitions during all phases of flight
    * No white out/grey out/blue out when passing through clouds or at night (My older "No White Out In Clouds" script is no longer needed)
    * No more infinite visibility
    * More challenge in IMC conditions
    * Works with default weather (manual and real weather)
     
    Compatibility:
    * Not compatible with X-Enviro
    * Not tested with Ultra weather, disabling the haze options in that plugin should get it working with X-Visibilty theoretically
    * FSE v0.5 uses the older gradual visibility script in the TrueHaze.lua file. Remove all text below (or remove lines 122-288) --TRUEHAZE INTERNAL PARAMETERS and this script should work fine with FSE
    * If you are using the "No White Out In Clouds" script, please remove it as it is no longer needed
    Installation:
    This script was tested on X-Plane 11.25, and it requires the flyWithLua NG plugin available at:
    https://forums.x-plane.org/index.php?/files/file/38445-flywithlua-ng-next-generation-edition-for-x-plane-11-win-lin-mac/
    To install, place X-Visibility.lua in the following folder:
    <X-Plane installation path>\Resources\plugins\FlyWithLua\Scripts\
     
    Usage:
    There is no interface but it is possible to change some parameters of this script with the following lines:
     
    local plugin_on = true --enable plugin
    local debug_info = false --show debug info
    local atmoTop_visibility = 30480 --elevation to apply the max visibility, default is 30480 m
    local minFog_value = 0.6 --minimum fog value between 0.0-1.0, default is 0.6
    local atmoTop_Fog = 1.5 --fog value after passing atmoTop_visibility
    local highAltFogMult = 1 --reduce to 0.5 or 0.25 if you feel the haze at higher altitudes is too strong, default is 1
    Acknowledgements:
    Thanks to @SNowblind7 for his help testing this script and for his initial work in the gradualVisibility script from which this is built upon.
