SMP4 does not look bad @ high altitude

Recommended Posts

I have just started experimenting with it, but all the gripes about high altitudes looking bad because of a small circle of clouds is funny, depending on your settings you can have a small circle or one where ytou can barely see the edges.

 

This is in the F-4 at 39,000', with three different settings, with the max view of 100 miles set in XP11, I'd imagine by turning back the distance of visibility you can see less of an edge of the clouds.

 

 

It's not perfect, but with the largest setting I find it hard to believe there is just no immersion as I can see some edges here and there but this is a pretty full set of clouds here.

 

Now I will work on maximizing the radius from under, it might be more challenging.

While the clouds do look good, I personally take issue with the fact of how the cloud cover just cuts off like it does, whereas the ground scenery continues into infinity.  I'd love to know why this was programmed like this, considering there is a decent cross section of people who fly at higher altitudes.  The way the clouds are generated and held within that 'square' kinda lessens the immersion factor, but maybe that's just me.

 

What was your altitude in the last two pics, because there, the clouds look like they continue onward a lot further?

39,000 I understand,,but with this. O erage they went far enough I could not tell they cut off except for a small part here and there, beats ugly black default for surw.

All pics are 39,000, just different settings.

Where did you find the Phantom, THAT looks like it's worth the cost! :)

It is a default XP10 aircraft. You can see it in the menu by enabling the display of previous version aircraft.

 

It has held up pretty well. I believe Tom Kyler was behind this one.
