ASN questions regarding cloud cover and thunder

Recommended Posts

I have P3D v3.   This is probably a very simple question but one I am curious about.  Does ASN completley take over the weather or do you still have to use the sim weather to control cloud density and cloud draw distance.  I have set the density to five layers in ASN but when I move the sim slider to the left most of the clouds disappear.  So I think I have answered my own question but it seems that I may be doubling up on resources that do the same thing.

 

Secondly, while flying yesterday in severe weather with lots of lightning I heard no thunder.  The ASN startup has thunder so I am curious why I never heard thunder in that situation.

 

Thanks,

Hi Ken,

 

It's a good question.  Everything is taken care of except for Cloud Density and Disable of all turbulence effects.  It's recommended to keep cloud density full right and to NOT disable turbulence effects (except in extreme cases where your 3rd party aircraft may have some sensitivity issues to turbulence).

 

Thunder is rendered through the sim internally.  You may want to increase environment sound level (sound options), but generally unless you are parked on the ground it is very hard to hear over the engine and wind noise (which is realistic IMO).

Thanks for the quick reply and the information.  It was very helpful.
