[WIP] Foggy Weather 2.0 - ETS 2 EDITION (New Graphics & Weather)

Hello,

Image

my name is Kirill, also known as "GerScaniaTrucker" in the SCS Community.
Some of you may know me and my work already. I worked on my map, called "Realistic Map" from time to time, but did not got the time and resources to get it finished, however since October 2015 I'm developing the modification "Foggy Weather".
Well, til version 1.6 the focus of this mod was on adding literally foggy weather. ^^ So the name was kinda fitting.
The community were very much in two minds about this. One liked it, the other not, because of to much etc...
Since February I've stopped on focusing adding fog and sandstorms in ATS only: Version 1.7 came out.
Now not only fog and sandstorms were added, no, also the whole climate and weather were reworked. New regional climates came into the game, the lighting got it's rework to a more realistic looking one, the weather were close to the one during June in the current available regions in ATS and some special weather phenomenons came as well.
It was the beginning of a new era of this mod.

And now, what many of the SCS users already now, I'm developing 2.0 for both games (ETS 2 and ATS), and today I wanted to share this to the ProMods Community as well.

I've already posted many news about this mod in the topic in the SCS Forum, so I don't think it's a good idea to post everything again here.

However I'll do post a new video of the progress from today ;) :

Pay attention on the sounds. ;)

Don't ask me for a release date. Because, as you know: "It's ready, when it's ready." ^^ My goal is this summer, but no warranty.

For sure, for ProMods there will be some specials. ;)

If you have questions, want to comment or give feedback, then just do it, I do not bite. :twisted: :lol:

If you want the Information on the first post from the SCS forum site, then let me know.

I'll post any news, if I publish one, here as well.

Yours sincerely,
Kirill.

Wow, that's a realistic thunderstorm. Just the lightnings are still missing. :P
Also saw your skybox in Hubyfan's video yesterday. Looks very good indeed.

Those lighty (and foggy at the same time :P) skies appearing at 2:40 look very realistic. The sun light effect there is lovely!

Thanks! :) You don't know how I would like to add those lightnings... :( Don't expect them earlier then the DX11/Vulcan-Upgrade of the engine. :P

@ Alb3r: Thanks! :)

I was in the woods this weekend, just to enjoy the nature:

A single rail track in the woods?

Image
The second one or is it the same? (We gone back to the wood after seeing the first track)

Image

Image
Oh a train. Scared me though. ^^ Didn't expected a train here.

After a while we came back to that place and stood there till sunset:
