High clouds

Recommended Posts

Guest Pilot533

In asv6 the clouds are not high enough, there are never any thunderstorms above 33,000 and there aren't high overcast layers up into the 30's like there should be. So my questions is does asx simulate this?

Hi,There is a limit in FS rendering (9 and X) that can limit the cloud heights.. this is mainly a performance concern. The most you will see on a regular basis is approximately 25K height.Cirrus overcast logic IS imporoved in ASX and you can get cirrus layers from about 25K ft to 40K ft.Best,

Thanks, I had been told a while back that you guys were looking to add supercells and towering cumulonimbus, are you still planning this? And how is the turbulence in asx compared with asv6, are there rotors simulated, what about if i fly a c172 into a thunderstorm, am I going to feel like it is being ripped apart?

Yes we are always looking at improving things within the confines of the limitations.In fact we are experimenting with new ideas right now for different kinds of clouds.Rotor clouds are not visually simulated but see above, its something we are working on.Thunderstorms and turbulence have received a good deal of attention. You'll now encounter the most extreme turbulences and up/down drafts when in direct vicinity or inside a tstorm cloud.Best,
