We have created superior cloud and weather formations containing precise definition for each cloud type. The simulator will now be able to implement soft and more robust detailed clouds structured together within the same session.
We have developed over 3,000 new cloud model structures and cloud which simulates real-world cloud classification. Cloud structures are now correctly and accurately displayed, and detailed clouds will NEVER be represented upside down.
Including new clouds types; altocumulus, stratocumulus, humilis, mediocris, congestus, tower cumulus, cumulonimbus calvus, supercell and rainshaft, tornado, stratus, nimbostratus, altostratus and cirrus class.
We eliminated unnecessary cloud sprites cutting down on GPU usage. The 3D Cloud structures are correctly and displayed, and clouds will NEVER be presented upside down.
We created the cumulonimbus 3D cloud model system as well as supporting textures. By examining real world weather conditions, we introduced the most feared of pilots and man - the super cell.
Storm structures reaching 70,000 ft. and added rain shafts to calvus and incus cumulonimbus clouds of various intensities. Also included are wall and shelf clouds, and in some circumstances these will include funnel clouds and tornadoes of various shapes and sizes.
Sky Force examines the metar report and syncs the weather structures to match upcoming weather while in-sim. Cloud structures actually match weather conditions. The correct type of cumulus, stratus, nimbo-stratus, or cumulonimbus clouds will be selected.
