AS16: pretty much default. I just enabled "Multi-layer thunderstorm clouds" and"enhanced turbolence"

 

ASCA is in "full dynamics" mode.

Nice pictures!

 

Do you also use the sky textures from ASCA?

You have a beautiful sim there, Philipp.

Very nice.  I really like how the second shot radar correlates with the two build ups to your 11/10 oclock.

Yes, but judging from the bright red radar returns maybe those clouds should look a bit more dark, more ominous?

Is that possible with AS16?

I use the free FSUIPC version and I changed nothing. Everything is default in FSUIPC.

That overcast in ## 3,4 and 5 is spectacular. Haven't seen this in any other addon screens yet!

Actually, no.  Thunderstorms are dark when you are down below them but this is how they look from up at altitude. I've been impressed with AS16/ASCA combo and how storms are depicted.

Can you tell me (if you ever used) if there's a FPS difference between this setup and REX 4 with SOFT Clouds + ASN?

This looks really good.

I came from using ASN w/ REX soft clouds and FPS are not an issue.  I've flown over some heavy cloudscapes and was amazed how well it all holds up...I was used to clouds bringing my system to a crawl.  I am using AS16 with ASCA...but not using their sky textures.

ASN + REX4T + Softclouds was my choice, now AS16 & ASCA are my ultimate combo. I love the way the atmosphere changes seamlessly throughout my flights and the clouds look great.

I can tell you that the FPS aren't a problem with AS16 + ASCA.. They managed the performance with the two products really perfect.

Like many others, I actually experienced an FPS increase with AS16/ASCA.
