Is this new? Cloud news

Recommended Posts

Before taking off I note my waypoints direction, altitudes, distances and time of departure, temperature and cloud level but I noted something new today the "layer thickness"? Is this something new?  On the other hand, is it because end march 1942 and temperatures are going up in the game clouds are more important?

Another thing that is not the first time I noticed is that my wingmen tend to get prone to accidents at takeoff; the squadron lost eight airplanes in total in three accidents at takeoff, better said shortly after takeoff. :salute:

As far as clouds,  they were changed in an update not too long ago I think. More layers if I recall.

It’s simply a different cloud preset/setting sensei,  of which there are many.

They added a 2 layer pre-set recently.

 

I happen to get the two layers at random.

Where to find the presets?

To try it out in the Quick Missions make the weather 'Heavy' and 50% of the time you'll get the dual layers.

I know that video by Arthur Smedley. Very atmospheric with the water drops on the canopy and  double cloud layers.

 

I hoped actually there was a real preset for it. Which I might have overlooked for some reason.

The heavy weather selection in QM only showing the two layers once in a while in my case.

 

Edit:

Really nice the double cloud layers. :)

The clouds are really awesome in this sim and the moisture effect when flying through them is a bonus.  Having layers of cloud to fly through creates an even more fun game of cat and mouse or having a formation flight to the target...

 

im just hoping they fix the pixelisation issue.  1 when in visual of an aircraft about 1-2km and they pass in front of a cloud and they start to go almost invisible and

2 when a distant aircraft about 7-8km maneuvers infront of clouds and is somehow covered by the ones near horizon 

now I’m used to it but I’m hoping with the new graphic touches it is also looked at...

In the editor, not the QMB.
