Thumbs up Weather Tests - Not for the middle or low end PC

Hi, here area a couple of missions so you get an idea of the weather.

Some of the abilities are still turned off. To give you an idea I get avg 40 fps o nfull everything with the mega storm.

Can't wait till new graphics patch is out and rain drops are included.

Fly through the storm and feel your plane struggle and choke in the winds.

Remember don't be a cry baby if your PC can't run this. Wait for new graphics engine.

Cumulus mission should run ok on middle end pcs just keep layers around 2.

Thanks Wolf. Even my machine had difficulty handling the larger weather formations. Renders OK, no stutters, but a lag in reading cockpit inputs like flaps, throttle changes etc. Oh, and there's no rain with the thunderstorm Lets hope the new patch improves fps enough that we can start to have some variable weather in online missions.

Probably a lot to ask, but any chance for a You Tube clip?

Weather example -Thunderstorm
Start with thunderstorm on starboard side & clear weather on port side. Note how canopy frosts over & engine dies trying to climb through the thunderstorm clouds.



Weather example -Overcast with breaks
Breaks in cloud, easier on engine than thunderstorm.

That was quick, Salmo. Thanks.

I was expecting the clouds to be bigger. They're still nice looking, but I guess I was thinking of the big towering cumulus clouds. This would add another dimension to flying if and when they are appled.

Thanks again for taking the time to upload.

Ive tried them just now and while i thank you for making these, as you say the FPS hit is huge and the cotton ball clouds are not great.

Though it is nice to see overcast and big clouds.

Again thanks for letting me try them.
