I would like to visualize features below the globe surface (e.g. pipelines). I wonder if it is possible currently.
After a lot of efforts I managed doing it by switching off the globe itself by using viewer.scene.globe.show = false;
But it would be nicer if I could play around with opacity by setting the baselayer’s alpha and/or the globe’s alpha to a value I choose.
If I set the viewer.imageryLayers.get(0).alpha = 0.5; then the layer becomes semi-transparent, but the globe is still visible with a default blue color. If I set the globe to transparent by viewer.scene.globe.baseColor = Cesium.Color.TRANSPARENT; then the baselayer forgets about transparency and becomes fully visible again.
Anyway, the features that are below the surface are not visible only if I completely turn off the globe itself.
Is there any elegant solution for that?
