Pointless new speculation thread

I think TrueSky will always be work in progress

What LM can control is the integration into the sim. I haven't seen the TrueSky SDK but I'm sure it offers plenty of fine-grained control to integrators. LM needs to expose a lot more of that control to developers via the PDK and SimConnect, so that things like WX radar can work again and ASP3D, FSGRW etc can properly tweak the weather to add effects and more realistic depictions. 

The more mature SDK and feature set of P3D is one key advantage is has over MSFS, but only if LM keeps it up to date.

Are we still on pointless? 

No not pointless at all, I learned the P3D forum has been mobilified, which is very positive and useful - trying to view the old forum on a small phone was suicide inducing... 😁

We don`t know what terms LM have with Simul who won TrueSky and allowing third party`s access to the product, I don`t think REX would allow HIFI access to there code.

You've lost me there. What on earth does "mobilified" mean? Doesn't even come up on an Internet search.

And sorry, don't you use a PC?😉

The LM forum has become a responsive Design with better mobile breakpoints to perfectly fit to several mobile devices with different screen sizes.

Lockheed gets leapfrogged again: https://youtu.be/QhVK1jnnYVY?t=2... and that's a free patch. This is what V5's clouds should've looked like 10 months ago.

 

Clouds look nice but are buggy. Try flying that with a VR headset and watch the jitters. 2.7 has potential, but I'd currently choose P3D clouds due to this problem, so hardly a "leapfrog", more an interesting but flawed beta release.

Is DCS using Truesky though?

And they are static. You can't have best performance, best details and lack of artifacts with no compromises at all - it's simply not possible with today's hardware.
