What if? Just What if?

If you're frozen in FS9 time and you like the cardboard clouds, OK I understand, that MSFS clouds are not acceptable for you 🙂. MSFS clouds are much more levels close to reality and MSFS can't display any cardboard, what you like, sorry.

Unfortunately I cannot reply to anything because unless I say "yes" or "fantastic" or "totally agree" the mods don't allow my post. lol

Not true Mark. Just keep your responses reasonable and hopefully we won't have to keep approving your posts. I like to fly as well you know. 😉

Sorry, I've just read the clouds are one of the weakest part of MSFS ? What screenshots ? Of course always there is room for improvement, but based on already public screenshots / videos,  it seems to be the best part actually, at least compared to what I saw in every other existing flightsim, even addons up to date.

Look at the video in the OP's post below. 39 second mark is a good reference. It cannot be any more obvious how blurry, lacking total definition MSFS clouds are. On top of this there are no cirrus clouds it appears in this sim! What is realism to you?

I keep trying to get across to people to look beyond the advertising. It's all there to see. The MSFS engine will create great clouds for the XBox kid to have armageddon-ish cloud conditions when he crashes his plane into his house. Myself, I want to use MSFS as a flight simulator and only ask for realistic, everyday clouds. MSFS clearly is not as capable of doing this as FS9. That's the truth from what we have seen so far and we have seen enough to make a definitive statement on it.

Really? Can you show us some realistic clouds from FS9? You must only a joking 🙂 I never saw a realistic clouds in FS9, FSX or another today sim, first realistic look clouds saw in alpha sceenshots and vids form MSFS, even though the cirrus clouds may be missing yet.

The good thing is, you can always stay with FS9 if you prefer realism. 😎

Criticism is healthy for the development of the sim. But just as with the undulation topic, there is a difference between pointing out things and constant crying.

If people stop quoting my posts and asking further questions of me then I don't have to reply. I am "repeating" or "expanding" not "crying."

If people keep coming back and asking me for a further response what can I do??? eg see below lol

FS9 has cirrus clouds and FS9 clouds have definition. They are not perfect but they are better than what can be seen in MSFS.

Did you look at the video I quoted earlier??? You only need eye balls to see the clouds are blurry as heck. How can they be better than any other sim? They are the worst clouds I have ever seen in any sim to be honest.

Sorry, I have to quote you one more time 😄. First, look at feature series videos, "native support for all type of clouds". So... if we didn't see it clearly yet, we will.

Second,  yes, there will be always "blurry parts" if you want to find it. Let's assume this is final release, if you want, not alpha. Did you really watched all public videos released ? I've not seen a weather depiction system like this before.. and used ASN for long time now.

My eyes are good, thanks. But I never saw any picture, where was FS9 clouds closer to reality, than MSFS clouds. Especialy if you're flying through the FS9 clouds, it looks like a cartoon tabs 🙂 Sorry, but you can't be serious with this.

Never mind natural looking clouds - how about the tyre smoke generated on landings? Seeing as this thread is a critical one even though the sim isn't ready for release, I couldn't help but notice on watching that video again (yes, it was the pre-alpha footage I know), that when the Cessna touched down (under-fuselage shot) the tyre smoke didn't travel back down the (moving) plane, but rather stayed in front of the wheels. Should be a simple coding fix to get it to stay put whilst the plane continues to move forward... 😎

Realistic clouds in FS9? Just look at any of edetroit's videos -  seem pretty realistic to me. Just saying, even if the latest sim will (should) get better with dynamic weather phenomenon..

Hopefully it will be on Steam, then i can get a refund if i dont like it. And yes the clouds look like word not allowed, not impressed with the trees either, and the grass that pops up right in front of your plane, nope dont like that either.
