For reference, here's the same shot in vanilla XP11:

Another one at KEWR with some low hanging SMP4 puffs. The improvements over SMP3 are subtle but definitly there.

Ventura sky may be "free", but the other plugins come in a $80.  I have SMP4 and RWC, but can't get the Flywithlua to work in XP11pb3 :(

I'd love to see a comparison of ventura vs smp4 vs xenviro honestly.. i was heart set on going xenviro after rave reviews.  I guess none of these offer 3d volumetric clouds though.. still unsure what 3d implies or what is lacking,, i guess maybe depth as you fly through them (compared to Rex/asn with 3d).. anyone know offhand ?

 

On the Flywithlua.. there is a modified lua config file out there, you have to copy it over and it works.. i'm on beta3 with it.

Volumetric clouds means worse performance. Why do you think SMP and XE perform better than default XP clouds?

Great looking shots, but the subtle improvements of SMP4 over v3 are not enough for me to purchase even with the 50% discount.  Am more impressed with Xenviro!
