xEnviro 1.08 is coming really soon and it seems like it will introduce some spectacular effects on the ground caused by snow or rain.
I suspected something like that when I read about the rain effect on the ground implemented in JustSim’s Larnaca that will be controlled by xEnviro 1.08, but my expectations were overtaken when I saw this pics on X-Plane 11 Espana facebook group.
Unfortunately the photo isn’t so detailed at this resolution, but you can see that the textures looks quite realistic, of course that happens before the snowplow comes in action! Anyway this is not the only voice in the 1.08 changelog.
Indeed the developers will provide a better engine and a fix for the shaders that appear as a major lack for this plugin. I’d appreciate also the support for Windshield rain/snow effect, but, hey, I am noone to tell the developers what to do!
It’s not actually clear if this effect has to be implemented also by the scenery developer, but it’s a consistent first step to seasonal gorund textures that are going to be introduced also by Laminar Reasearch, but not in a near future.
