    Re: TFS 5.0 Weather/Clouds FIRST LOOK!!

    Cliffs has always had really nice clouds (probably my favourite in any sim), but that's a step up again. Does anyone in TFS know if it's possible to add the condensation effect that we see in BoX when flying through cloud, or is that an engine limitation?

    They look great. They give of a feeling of randomness, which is always a breath of fresh air when it comes to simulations.

    the problem I see is the render engine(most likely) not being able to render lensing effects from raindrops, so that would require an engine rewrite if that is the case.

    I know nothing of all this technical stuff with clouds, but what I do know is that the clouds in the picture look pretty impressive to me

    My jaw hit the floor. These look incredible. I know some have said they liked the clouds in CLoD, but personally I always felt they stuck out like giant, floating cotton balls. They were impressive insofar as being fully 3D and volumetric, so this just takes their technical achievements to another level.

    The lighting on them as well looks far improved. Will the clouds be properly lit from the sun? So if there is the possibility of multiple layers, will layers shaded by those blocking the sun be simulated accordingly?

    I truly think this update alone catapults the graphics engine to modern standards.

    Those clouds look absolutely real! Amazing!. It brought that screenshot to life. They are so close to the deck you could hide or get lost in them almost instantly..

    Not sure if we will be implementing rain and snow for TF 5.0 release... depends on the time required.

    They will be a part of the game in the future.

    Easy quick solution, custom made: move your PC/Combat Station from your room to your garden...You will experience every kind of weather conditions independently to the TFS patches development...

    I recall MP posting this photo fairly recently.

    Is this indeed showing the new weather featured in the OP?

    No, he probably just photoshopped some real clouds onto a Tobruk screenshot.

    Well it is a testament to how good this new weather model is looking that I could believe that was within the game engine!

    I notice in your signature.. we now have the the single hump camel Mk1. Any chance of seeing the MkIIb model with the twin humps? I hear they pack a punch..

    Will TFS 5.0 clouds allow us to hide in them from pursuers, or will they be computed on client side?
