  1. The latest screen shots are majestic ... really surpassing 1.10 by folds.... it looks like 2020 is going to be the year of transformation for the flight sim .... apart from msfs2020, i see that x-plane platform is going to catch-up very soon due to their Vulkan engine updates being ready and perfected in the backdrop ... and having an addon such as x-enviro 1.12+ (i start my count from 1.12 as it seems to be narrowing the gap with msfs2020 )..... out of this, i would ask the devs the following: if msfs2020 having support for more than 30 layers of clouds with good performance on Directx11 ... why would x-enviro only have only few for now.... what are the avenues in x-plane engine that limit the hands of x-enviro developers .... is Laminar planning to make your work easy and open all blockages to give you free-hand to express the full potential of future x-enviro releases .... Keep up the good works... and we trust the race is on... and you can really make x-plane platform compete or out-match msfl2020 - which honestly has set a new benchmark for the industry on a clean fresh green landscape platform fresh from the grounds up..
  2. Despite our eyes leaning towards what 1.11 and 1.12 will bring, still though 1.10 continues to amaze us. opening this snapshot contest was one of wisest decisions at this stage to let us appreciate the amount of work done and put into 1.10 despite of known issues - it still looks like a master peace. thanks all for their contribution.
  3. Hey, its raining over-there........
  4. The above screenshots - BY FAR - from first glance - are at a TOTALLY WHOLE NEW LEVEL than initial release of 1.10 -- and MUCH SUPERIOR than before --- and Look MORE NATURAL. Overall, bringing a whole New Breath in the XP world.... Wow.... GREAT JOB. The forms of clouds has really evolved and is maturing as we see. ------------ My wish for next iteration: along with anticipated enhancement work on night environment - is to have the light scattering on clouds during sunset and sunrise to look more natural..whereby clouds get a pink-color treat effect as being let from below...
  5. screenshot is lovely and lively we are on the get-set...
  6. above screenshots of clouds in 0.10 still look great today even today. a very convincing view.
  7. A few question Kaptain, Thanks for sharing the 1.11 screenshots, i can see you are revising the drawing board to leap to the next level... GREAT STUFF.... while am sure the team is busy with optimization and promised features wrap as per published road map... I have a rather fundamental question about the formations of clouds.. irrelevant to any specific build carrying on right now.... My questions: Can you enumerate what cloud types do you plan to support with the volumetric rendition? Apart from Clouds, do you plan to implement volumetric visualization for tornadoes/thunderstorms? How do you give the clouds their final looks? is it based on Thermodynamics Mathematics referenced to METAR data (usually requires more intensive calculations) is it based on Visual Approximation Algorithms referenced to METAR data (more performance and lighter weight ) Above question came to mind after reading: http://www.markmark.net/cloudsim/ A paper referring to physically-based, visually-realistic interactive cloud simulation. modeled using partial differential equations describing fluid motion, thermodynamic processes, buoyant forces, and water phase transitions. ---------------- Much excited about 1.11..... 1.1x
  8. Having watched that video - Austin seems to give you his best support - as far as they are able to stretch themselves at LS at this stage....
  9. You deserve a good rest - and best compliments for the achieved milestone thus far.
  10. About Vulkan Have you had chance to work on Vulkan/Metal internal test - similar to ORBX alongside any early performance results . or is that completely not a priority for 1.11 (probably for 1.12) By the way, we are eager to have updates for 1.11.... Thanks
  11. This is a very big surprise for the flight sim community, wow.... https://stormbirds.blog/2019/06/09/microsoft-makes-surprise-flight-simulator-announcement-at-e3/ Microsoft Flight Simulator - E3 2019 - Announce Trailer https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ReDDgFfWlS4
  12. I guess that is not quite odd-enough We seem to have as well some unique square icebergs in nature too..
  13. Could this be the Ultimate Card for XE 1.1x ? Despite that DUO card is now debuted for MAC only -
