Forget the smokeclouds. Wow, this is New, never seen before in a flight sim...

REAL Cirrus clouds (high above contrail level too!) http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/11.gif These are not just high sky background??

REAL Altocumulus clouds...

For comparison...


Altocumulus
Playa Conchal, Costa Rica, November 2003

The typical pattern, but not quite covering the whole sky.

So, this is CFS3. Who made the Cloud Mods? Awsum white clouds, sweet blue sky. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

Dammit Jim ! I'm a pilot, not a weatherman ! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Yah, pretty cloud effects. I'm more concerned about FM and DM though, since I'm playing a flight sim.

In real life, some pilots were weathermen, the other pilots never came back. A real combat flight simulator makes use of weather for Navigation and air combat tactics. So far, nobody has made one.

Now, any Tank Sim webboard considers weapons, armour, DM, roads, valleys, woods, and hills of equal importance, much like clouds should be as important as the traditional arcade "dogfight" game FM and DM. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

see F S Twee http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif Smoke, large fires, dirt fx, glowing exhausts fires, huge clouds that are scattered over 10,000m, advanced weather , contrails, primary and secondary explosions dont seem to cause fps loss there.

But cfs3 on highest graphics aa af looks a bit worse then this game on highest graphics, But then again its full world terrain vs small square maps.

Nice looking herd of honeys there, I'll be getting my wellies on.

Can you see if any are actually lactating or is that something for the next patch?

FS2004 is great, no question about it. But I wonder how would it go if it included calculations for the 30+ Enemy and friendly AI trying to blaze each other.

BoB Channel map will offer immersive combat over the historical southeast London area.
The coast of France will be on a separate map.
