Any Places To Get Sunset Shots?

I’m trying to make myself a screensaver in the training room featuring a USN standard/Pear Harbor fleet composition set against a sunset background. I swear I’ve seen some videos in the past of maps with sunset backgrounds (I prefer ocean just so I could have a relatively clean background I disturbed by islands). So far though I have somehow not been able to find a sunset background on any map in the training room or even in port.

Anyone know how/where to get those sunset screenshots on any of the battle maps or port if none of the maps have one?

Do you mean the sun is actually in the horizon, or just general dusk lighting? Land of Fire has a red sky approaching sunset.

Having a sunset/sunrise shot would make for an advantage/disadvantage to being able to see when the sun was behind/in the eyes of opponents so they tend to keep them higher in the sky to avoid that...

Not an official word mind you...just my take on it...but shots do tend to disappear on some maps while in flight (especially on US floaty shells) when they get a bright sky behind them.

I suppose just general dusk, enough to basically give everything the pink/orange hue.

I honestly don't remember, I took those screenshots years ago.  The airship one is/was a low tier arctic map that's pretty small.  If I had to guess, I think the map is called Polar.

Unfortunately  just checked out the polar map in the training room and there wasn't a single sign of dusk/sunset.

Land of fire works, thanks!

I had one like that yesterday, (pretty sure it was Haven) except the sun was right at the horizon.

Are there randomized skyboxes for some maps?
