Daylight System and MR: Wrong default daylight parameters?

I thought when the render is set to Mental Ray and you create a daylight system, the Daylight Parameters, ie Sunlight and Skylight are automatically set to mr Sun and mr Sky.

This seems not the case.

I use Max 2016.

I think you have to use the correct default settings ( defaults switcher->Max.MentalRay ) )for this to happen. Only changing the renderer does'nt suffice.

Thanks Josef, that solved it.

However, some parameters seem not to take effect when modified, eg type of UVW map, ie Box instead of Planar.
Have you tried any custom modifications?
