Supersonic clouds in some AC tracks?

I was racing the other day in single player when I noticed that the clouds were racing across the horizon at great speed. I didn't think much of it, but today I raced a a couple of modded tracks and the clouds were also racing across the sky. We are talking clouds that go faster than an airliner and those in the background must be supersonic.

I research the topic on Google but nothing came up. Are my settings wrong someplace or is it a known bug?

I'm not sure it's a bug or anything like that. I'm pretty sure it's "As Designed", it's just poorly optimized. If it's been reported on the official forums then hopefully it'll be fixed in the next build.

Thanks, maybe I am the only one that sees it. I'll see if I can take a video of it tomorrow and post it, then I'll post a ticket at the AC forums unless one is already open.

I have the same problem with the clouds. I could almost swear that I saw something about it already, but maybe not. Can't hurt to take a look, and post if it isn't.

Check weather1.cfg (in Steam folder)
Make sure its default.
And also check race.cfg (in Documents folder)
Make sure time and cloud speed are default.

I noticed my clouds moving pretty quickly the other day too, forget which track though.

I never actually looked up to the sky when racing focussed, its blue and that is all which is important to me in AC :p

On some tracks the clouds pass on the horizon line and they are smack in your face as you crest the road. Hard to ignore the giant puffy cloud going supersonic right above the road.

Still never noticed them, I do need full 100% track focus or else I crash

Nobody tried and checked this so far?

I eventually pay attention to clouds when looking at replays. During race I don't have the time to look at them, i'm usually busy dodging walls and sandtraps. But yes, they are supersonic.

I never look up at them when racing/driving, but when the giant blue section in my peripheral vision quickly turns to white instead of blue it's kinda hard not to notice. When I really noticed how fast they were going was when I had stopped on track to make an onboard setting adjustment, when you're stationary you can't help but see them flying across the screen.

For those who say they only look at the track when racing and nothing else, remind me never to go two-wide in a turn with you. :confused: ;)

In Steam... \assettocorsa\system\cfg\weather1.ini

change BASE_SPEED_MULT=0.0150

to BASE_SPEED_MULT=0.0015

I think it fixed it for me.

It's a bug, Kunos got lazy :p. Adjust cloud speed in the weather.ini file found in the cfg folder in AC's file path. Just add a 0 or two to the stock cloud speed and things will improve dramatically.
