good and bad weathers 2.4

custom weathers with HD-Clouds and one ppfilter for the best immersion in AC

  1. Peter Boese

    good and bad conditions
    HD-cloud textures included for realistic skies

    This is especially for sim drivers. I am trying to simulate the real colors of the diverse conditions with a realistic blueshift in the distant. For more immersion i balanced sun-levels and sky-levels to simulate eye strain. My goal is a perfect illusion of driving in plausible weathers.

    !!! until now - not usable for online sessions !!!

    "Content Manager" is required!
    Its unique weather-loading feature is absolutely necessary for this modification. The weathers inside this pack are designed to work best with the "real condition" function of CM - an automatic selection by live weather data.

    SweetFX for more brightness and better HDR
    If the PPFilter+SweetFX is too bright for you, many simmers use the PPFilters from

    If you like it brighter and you want a "like i'm really there" feel, i can highly recommend

    Amazing . A suggestion for a more realistic and commonly seen sky would be chemtrail day .

      Thanks! ATM with this kind of automatic texture positioning AC provides, geometric objects are the pure horror. If we're able to control the positioning, i will do some plane trails...

    Great work Peter.
    You should name yourelf Peter Pan cuz ..thisd is some real magic. =)
    Only minor thing, but for me I don't know if anyone else has problem with it, some textures of clouds are too big and that makes me wonder about performance. Plus they take much more of my, day by day, smaller and smaller hd. =)
    But I do resize for myself with Paint.net, save them in DX5 format, that saves a lot of space and... they still look very same. Perfect I mean. ;)
    My eye can't see the difference with ~50% smaller textures.
    Keep up.

      Thank You!
      I use those big resolutions for some reasons:
      1. FOV in Replays is really small and so lowres clouds don't look good
      2. I don't know which FOV the user has set.
      3. Many people are using 4K and maybe in 1 or 2 years there are the first 6K. I just want to have the resolution of the clouds bigger than it is drawn to prevent an enlargement. Like SGSSAA or DSR it is always better to shrink to save texture quality.

    I have always used my own weathers. Since last update I have no time to rework in them, but now, maybe not necessary with yours. Great work.

    Hopefully still looks good without SweetFX... love these weathers but SweetFX doesn't work in VR yet :(
    1. Peter Boese
      Author's Response
      sweetFX just put in more contrast and brightness. so nothing special and not needed for VR Headsets.

    Although I never tried the content manager, I like this MOD. The cloud textures are amazing. The only trouble is that it never looks as bright as the pictures, maybe its the Wagmums filter, so I always have to modify the weather archives to look brighter.
    1. Peter Boese
      Author's Response
      thank you. Just try the filter in the pack. With the next update i will pack in sweetfx-settings which are brightens the view without loosing contrast.
