  • New cloud shadows with adjustable intensity - uses a new shadowing technique never before seen in X-Plane, with no measurable framerate impact
  • New hi-res cloud puff option - this uses a novel new hybrid approach to combine high-resolution phototexture detail with our volumetric rendering.
  • New lens flare option
  • Towering cumulus clouds (new cloud type!) will be added when thunderstorms are present
  • Ambient light color on clouds more realistic
  • Numerous cloud lighting improvements
  • Thunderstorms are bigger
  • Cloud "popping" as the camera turns should be greatly reduced
  • Better dawn / dusk cloud lighting transitions
  • Rare crash on MacOS when flying with low-quality overcast on should be resolved
  • Further performance enhancements.
  • Overcast conditions with "low" overcast quality improved visually
  • New sky color set additions
  • Thunderstorms are bigger
  • Certain airports won't get stuck in whiteout conditions upon loading when using X-Plane
  • Saving and restoring settings will work reliably

it will be a free update???

As a user of SMP v1, I would have been more than happy to support the developer by paying for the update.

These are really fantastic news!

The fact that they made this free has ensured that I will buy any future products they come out with. I understood there was uncertainty as to whether or not it would be free and I previously stated that I thought it should be. I think they made the right decision and will support them fully with my card in the future.

The ultimate clouds simulation !

Visually the clouds looks stuning especially with the reworked shaders , and they are truly 3d rendered and behave just like the real ones .

The best clouds in any simulator :)

Thanks guys we were excited to offer this as a free upgrade since the support from you all has been overwealming. Im excited to see the apprication from the community and glad to serve you, what I think, are the best clouds in a simulation platform.

 

Your input drove this update, we may not of always responded but we are listening to you rest assured.

 

I hope this helps extend X-Plane and bring it closer to the next level for our hobby....

Wow, thank you so much for the free update, I'm very excited! I appreciate the hard work you guys put into improving the clouds in X-Plane.

 

However I didn't receive any notice or email and I'm an existing v1 customer. :( How may I get the free update?
