Nice to see that kind of thread
It’s not huge, but it’s certainly a step forward
About what the devs want or don’t want to see, I guesss that as long as you don’t reverse-engineer the code and distribute it, that will be fine. Some other companies sometimes accept this kind of tinkering, like Mojang for Minecraft, but it’s a bit of another story
Personally I think, clouds would offer more to many people than they can handle. I just had some thrilling flights (as a passenger) where many clouds was involved. Surely, the pilots did not see anything when they passed the fantastic looking structures. Great, but thrilling experience when there are a lot of invisible bumpers in the air that shake the plane.
From that perspective something like an “electronic cloud guidance support system” should be a must if clouds are in. Of course, the tactical fun would be to jam the ecgss of your opponent and play blind man’s buff…
Meanwhile are there some other mods you tried? Would be interesting to see some different atmospheric effects, like a high density atmosphere and its effects to ships at higher speeds.
Or the rings of the planet. Is it possible to change the density of debris/asteroids and the occurence of different sizes?
