when flying not too far above the cloud layer there is an awesome looking feature visible called “cloud downwash”.
This cloud downwash graphics effect could be implemented with the same graphics engine that is making the V-like shape a float plane is cutting into water.
I think the Flight Sim 20 should have this fantastic graphics effects, if possible to implement
Maybe you could post this in the Q&A section?
Great idea. Not so sure about the reuse of ‘water engine’. I see your point but guess that too much is different between water and cloud convection. But I could be wrong, of course.
After some checking, there is no existing request, so it’s been moved to
However, you may also be interested in this SDK Thread:
Hello fellow developers, modding enthusiasts and anyone who is interested in making this sim better.
I would like to start a new community project - effects library. We just got an effects editor weeks ago, it is still in Beta state and quite unstable, some important node types are missing, some presented does not work properly.
But still - it works, it is flexible, it is promising. Some skills are required to work with it, especially because not many official tutorials exist yet. I hope it wi…
Effects editor can’t affect particle clouds/fog anyhow, so not an option.
Aircraft does not create any kind of turbulence either, not even possible to simulate it with SimConnect (wind variables are locked).
But I remember engine downwash was mentioned by developers as planned feature, which, technically, may cause described effect.
Agree, should be a part of that wake turbulence physics upgrade that should extend the first adoption of this kind of effects within the Reno DLC
Something like this would be cool:
Is this currently the biggest airplane? It´s larger than a 747.
It was. Now it is the stratolaunch, which is basically two 747’s slaped together:
The Scaled Composites Model 351 Stratolaunch or Roc is an aircraft built for Stratolaunch Systems by Scaled Composites to carry air-launch-to-orbit rockets. It was announced in December 2011 and rolled out in May 2017. The aircraft features a twin-fuselage design and the longest wingspan ever flown, at 385 feet (117 m), surpassing the Hughes H-4 Hercules flying boat of 321 feet (98 m). The Stratolaunch is intended to carry a 550,000-pound (250 t) payload and has a 1,300,000-pound (590 t) maxim...
But it depends on how you define biggest plane. If you go after length, the An225 still is the longest.
