Awesome. Beta was very smooth for me, save for the Assistance bug obviously.

But bottom line: The atmosphere is very hard to beat IMHO. Especially while flying in winter landscape. (Spoken as a rw GA pilot, and not an Xbox arcade gamer™ 😉).

Visuals are simply fantastic, it's absurd how authentic the Scandinavian landscape in its winter shroud looks in MSFS (thanks Nordic Update).

Now back to the DA40NG

Those who participated in the beta have an idea about the download size of SU14 (not disk space, please). Just curious!.

What time do these updates usually release?

Also, are these atmospheric improvements a result of that thread I saw where some clever chap pointed out the issues?

I just joined the beta a few days ago. I have the Premium Deluxe version and the download size was approx 11 GB - probably larger once it’s decompressed.

I've loved the SU14 beta.  Worth it for the far better sky colours and of course the beautiful Working Title SR22T.

And on a slightly fecetious note, I can't wait to see what happens with the "non SU14 compatible" FSS Tecnam P2012. 🤤

SU14 is definitely a winner. I've been in the beta for the duration. I don't know exactly what they did, but as SAS443 mentioned, the overall visual quality in general seems to have improved by quite a bit. Just about everything looks better. It's not just the colors which do look much better in the new lighting, but also in sharpness and detail. There is a noticeable increase in the number of objects that I see in and around the airport. Baggage carts, cars, trucks, misc airport vehicles and implements as well as more AI traffic. AIG at anything more than 38% caused major stuttering on my system. I increased it to 85% and it runs nice and smooth. I'm not going to increase it any more because I had to wait nearly 20 minutes in line for TO out of Boston the other night. It was fun, but I almost had to terminate the flight before landing because I had to get somewhere. Fortunately, I had a 125kt tailwind for a couple of legs and I made up some of it.

What I am really the most impressed with is the performance improvement during approach, landing, and taxi to the gate. I did KORD to KMSP early this morning, and the approach to MSP in the fog was beautiful. I didn't get any stutters at all from 500' until I after I turned off of the runway, and then some. My system is mid grade by today's standards, so I'm perfectly happy with how SU14 performs.

Another thing that I noticed is weather effects.The puddles on the aprons somehow look better than they did before. I think that the raindrops hitting the ground effect was missing (or only visible from outside of the cockpit or something like that) under certain conditions because now I see them every time it rains and in all views.

Asobo did a good job on this one. Sorry in advance to everyone who has their install go awry...

That’s one of the things I’m interested in. Various patch notes mentioned some changes in clouds so interested to see if there’s much of an improvement to the way they look in live weather.

Without that fellow Asobo never guess how to change colors to close to reality. Mr. Biology himself worth more than the whole Asobo team.

Such baseless hyperbole is unneeded and leaves no doubt about your agenda.  When you speak this way about an entire team who built MSFS 2020 (what have You built?) you might think of yourself as being witty, but actually it only makes you look foolish.

These forums would do much better with more facts and less speculation.

Indeed, his attempts at being witty are subpar at best.

The actual facts of Biology's great work is captured here: https://www.avsim.com/forums/topic/637454-potential-improvements-for-sky-colors/

Both MSFS and X-Plane based their atmospheric lighting on a couple of scientific papers which had errors in some of the parameters used, and now Biology's efforts have resulted in both X-Plane and MSFS getting fixed: https://www.avsim.com/forums/topic/637454-potential-improvements-for-sky-colors/?do=findComment&comment=5006056
