xp11 Some Welsh Weather

Recommended Posts

And it's pretty fair today... although it should be as it's (flaming) June. We had thunder storms yesterday in Devon, and in general it's been rather unseasonal these past days.  Anyway, just trying xEnviro 1.10 which has finally added it's true 3D volumetric clouds to X-Plane in their real-time weather app.  It can look very good at times, but the clouds are grainy when viewed close up. It also takes over all post processing, taking away any changes made by xVision, and therefore losing control as to how the sim looks... that being said, it does a good job with lighting for the most part.  Frame rates are cut in half for me when using it, which is a shame.... I'd say it's an interesting development, that needs more time to mature, and certainly worth a look if you already own it...

 

The clouds are quite pleasing to the eye, and remind me of FSW's trueSKY implementation.

Lovely glare effect from the sun.

You can see the granular make-up of the clouds towards the top left.

Overall lighting is very nicely handled.

Great review, I’ve had Xenviro for a while, your right, it needs more work, hopefully XPlane with Vulcan will help, haven’t seen snow yet that will be interesting to see.

Thanks Ken. I'd be happy to use it more if the performance was better... perhaps not so much of a problem on a better PC.  I need to find some snow and give that feature a try.
