Yes the clouds should absolutely be rolled back on the PC version to their former glorious photorealism from the earlier release days.
Wow these cloud formations and thunderstorms looked more awesome before November, and got slowly but significantly downgraded over time.
I loved these early release clouds, now the clouds still look awesome when taxiing or starting and having some distance from them - but they don´t look the same anymore when flying through them or over them.
This absolute 100% realism when flying through clouds from the early release days is somehow gone, hard to describe… this foggy-like appearance, the nebula-like seamless grades of transparency when slowly breaking through the clouds, the photorealistic illumination while being in clouds and slowly climbing above them, is somehow gone.
The clouds itself are pixelated the shading inside is different, there are now “mach`sche streifen” (don´t know the english term for that, it´s a term for poor colour grading and poor transparency in stripes instead of stepless reduction of transparency, now they have these mach´sche lines like 8 or 16 bit textures instead of 32 bit colour grading).
This flight sim is PERFECT (in my opinion) but the clouds need some love and attention and need to be brought back to their former glorious visuals looks and feels when flying through them.
