Volumetric Clouds in XP

Yes, I would hope LR would look at Unigine for sure.

But isn't Unigine a complete game engine? You can't just have the clouds, you have to have the whole environment (of which the clouds are just a part).

Lot of games that use the Unigine engine use TrueSky for Unigine. For some reason the clouds look a lot better in these games than in FSW. Maybe, DTG detuned the cloud settings until they can get a better handle on overall performance. As someone previously mentioned, the FSW clouds are blurry and some have aurora-like swirling that seems like an artifact of some sort. It's bound to get better, but right now, the clouds aren't anywhere near as realistic those provided by EnvTex/ASCA but they are probably better than SMP.

I actually have the image that you referring to. That one which Andrey said took 45min to render(load).

That looks like a developing anvil head CB, and it's exactly the kind of thing XP can't model, because it extends through too much vertical space. Also no modeling of vertical convection inside the system.

If the ExEnviro devs are rendering images like this for a future update, it's probably for 2D billboards shown in the distance, and not anything actually "in" the simulation that the plane can interact with.

This is exactly the sort of thing that volumetric should be able to accomplish, but never actually does to date, because of the resources required. That being the case, billboards will probably be with us for quite a while longer.......
