I have been testing SU7 for a few hour now and since this latest update, live weather clouds and clouds formations look much much worse than before. Clouds look way too fuzzy, blurry, bland and lacking density, pretty much like smoke instead of clouds.
I remember this happening in the very first couple of updates of the sim, but they improved a ton since then. I hope we are not back to these horrible live weather clouds formations as they seem to completely lack sharp edges and coherency
Apples and oranges. You are comparing two different clouds. One is light clouds and one is big cumulonimbus’s. I’m doing 747 KSAN KSEA . KSAN was correct weather. The blending is great in route. I’m real happy with the new weather so far. And no there will be no going back to old. The new weather is quite stunning. Good advancement. Its very relaxing to endlessly look at the endless formations.
I am getting a sort of ghosted diagonal line pattern on clouds now, first time since the sim launch I’ve seen it. It doesn’t always happen, it’s on the edges of the clouds but it is hard to ignore. I’ll try to capture a screenshot.
maybe I didn’t explained myself correctly. I know these don’t look as the same type of clouds/clouds formations, the point was that there was a time when 90% of the time, clouds looked like that (fuzzy, incoherent, too transparent, lacking body, etc.) no matter what the weather was and that wasn’t intended to be like that. In fact, at some point they improved dramatically to what the su6 images show in the example screens. In real life, 90% of the time, clouds will be well bodied and dense, and that’s how they have been working for me over europe for the last 6+ months. Amazing far away formations you could clearly see and with sharp edges.
I haven’t tested enough yet, and live weather seems to be having issues so I hope all is due to that, but it gives me a bad feeling because I haven’t seen that ugly clouds since quite long now, and getting them back again makes me think something is wrong.
Abriael I value your opinion but you have got to be kidding !!! Then you must have another version that we don’t own !!!
Look over at this thread - we went from a 21st century engine (with some limitations of course) back to the old FSX engine !!!
It’s not about cloud types here, it’s about rendering !!!
It looks amazing, with tons of details at the very far horizon and sharp formations of defined clouds that vary in heigh and are compact and coherent. I haven’t been able to find anything close to that in the whole europe. WTH?
