Watch the video on the bottom of that page.



I have just finished watching the video. Yes, the clouds do interact with the airflow. I see the potential for it to be used not only for eye candy, but to simulate realistic weather effects. In my opinion, the code for the old 3D clouds should definately be kept in the CVS.

Again, I don't believe this part of the code is actually implemented for FlightGear and the new code has some early implementation for doings the same. It really requires much more work to make the old code plib aware, improve plib to support impostors and additionally to add the airflow code into the picture (I haven't even talked about making it METAR aware).

Unless one of you starts to implement it now, it will probably be removed.
