View Full Version : The Weather

Its probably a bad sign when people are reduced
to having to talk about the weather.

Anybody know how dynamic the weather is going to be?
Many missions take weeks(computer time) to complete,it seems mock to have the same weather the whole time.You can set out from saint nazaire and come back weeks later and for the whole mission the weather would be clear skies and calm seas.

I know its too much to ask for dynamic weather fronts and sea currents but surely there could be some kind of time trigger?

How is the weather going to be worked?

I'm pretty sure SHII will use some kind of dynamic weather modelling, depending on the season and where you actually are. I remember reading one of the devs talking about the height of waves AFTER a storm, so it doesn't seem to be some kind of random weather "switch".

Haven't heard too much about this feature though, sounds like a good idea for a queestion for the devs.

When is the next meet the dev team chat going to be?
I have something i want cleared up once and for all.

Is there wind modeled?or is this too still
beyond the possibilities of computers.

It would be nice during a really bad storm
if you could duck into a harbour for shelter.
Something that should look great is if there is
a really really bad storm and thelighthouses
are working.There should be working foghorns as well.

There will definatly be a dynamic weather simulation, but I ask myself if in winter the coasts an uboat bases will be shown with snow.

yeah, this is pretty important for a Sailing sim of any description.

OK, here I go again. SORRY about this, but it's for your own good!

Don't any of you people know how to read, do you not beleive what the DevTeam has already said, or are you as ignorant as you sound?
