“Keeping the update short this week”

Every week

You don't need a lot of words when you can produce images like the ones taken from the Alpha team; plus, what more do you want to know?

something just doesn't look right about the cloud on the righthand side, looks very solid like a lava lamp bubble, or a plume of smoke.

How often do you see clouds from inside and outside an airplane when the sun is setting and rising?


A computer user can be a gamer, or a simmer, or both. Having fun with a simulator does not mean that the simulator ceased being a simulator and is now a game. Simulators are not played, simulators are used. Simulators are simulators, and games are games. A software product could be both. In the case of MSFS, from https://www.flightsimulator.com/june-20th-2019/"We are making Microsoft Flight Simulator. Emphasis on the word SIMULATOR."

it's not just every sunrise and sunset there are daytime as well when the clouds looks more like a gray volcanic plume, looks very solid. noticed that there are clouds that are transparent just like this one below:

which very realistic! exactly the way I see in every real flight, but when it's cumulus it looks very solid in my opinion.

Lava lamp clouds...cumulus clouds compressed from below by mountain updrafts.

Bhutan International Aiport looks stunning. Got to take the A320 in there!

Given the flying by some Alphas it's 50:50 whether the 747 is landing or departing or both

Glad ChaoticBeauty got a well deserved shout out.

here are some videos i found on Youtube soaring through clouds, @:2:23 you see clouds are similar to the sim when you are looking from afar which is very cool, but when you got closer @2:54 you'll see softness of the clouds, it's almost look like a very thick fog. @4:00 is a great example, approaching the clouds and it get softer and softer as you get near fly into it. that would be awesome! 

this what look's like when I was in Dubai, cloud like fog.

yup, I agree, that's very cool! but it looks very different when you get near to it.

The direction of the shadows (plane and rock) are different. The shadow of the rock is not in line with the sun. But I think this is hard to correct.

Quite right.

The shadowing on the landscape is in line with the time of day the Bing Imagery was taken.

Something which should be addressed in the future one would hope.

Image below is Bing - borrowed from Shack95 over on the In-game v Satellite Thread.

At the end of the runway could not be landing 🙂 

Don't understand how there could possibly be any debate, the plane is clearly landing, look how much runway is left in front of it.

Amazing screenshots, can't wait (as in every week...)

Yes, it's a bit late touch down but still in the TDZ. It looks like she's on the last tdz marker.

Yep. They're all real pictures of 3D Synthetic Environments.
