Dovetail Games promised a big announcement this week and today they unveiled that Flight Sim World will be using trueSKY as their in-sim weather engine. Following up from the last update, trueSKY looks to bring glorious looking weather into the sim. Over on the trueSKY website, it’s described as “the most advance and reliable sky system available”.
The technology itself allows the use of weather systems and data to updated in real-time, create volumetric clouds and atmospheric data, all of which is done on the GPU to free up space for the CPU to do its work.
Whilst I can’t confirm myself, it would appear that Update 8 is already available. If anyone can confirm this, please let me know.
We’ve gone ahead and created some comparison shots for you, which we took from the trailer.
Whilst you’re here, why not read my article on what I understand Flight Sim World is and will be.
