The same repeating cumulus clouds became extremely repetitive and boring to look at. Highly detailed textures, including runway textured lighting encasements. Despite this, they have done a better job making it look 3D, despite the marketing trick. N ew 3D Cloud Synchronization Process for In-Sim Updates Synchronization technology which dynamically syncs 3D cloud model structures in real-time during flight. For me this alone is worth the price, not counting the many many other default airports I will fly into that have been enhanced. Best add-on I have ever purchased.
Real-Time Weather Engine Intelligent weather engine that harnesses over 70,000 points of weather data globally.

Never Miss an Update Includes a built-in auto update feature which allows you to easily update your software. Different lighting conditions dictate the range of colors from yellow to orange and red to amber. The impact they have on performance is very reasonable and its a very nice improvement of the scenery. This should have been the weather and cloud addon for flightsim. This is extremely beneficial since it is able to synthesize cloud layers, and determine which cloud types need to be displayed, based on several parameters.
Many types of runway grooving and material selection. Although the cost is a bit high, it is worth every penny for the major cloud overhaul that you get. Single-session cloud texture variation, allowing more variety during a flight session, increasing the overall realism. It definitely gives sky, cloud, and airport ground textures extra depth.
