Bob, “Special Winter Edition of the Historical Wather Mod” sounds good, but if it’s not historically accurate then let’s leave it as is. Thanks for entertaining the thought, though! Out of curiosity, do you know if the winter green grass texture tiles are separate from the summer texture tiles? If I were to edit the winter tiles, would that affect summer tiles? Just wondering.

Hi Fullofit. There are 4 sets of ground texture tiles for the 4 different seasons. If you you download my Seasonal ground textures mod V2, you can look at which ground tiles you can edit if you want to try it yourself. Cheers!

Thanks 4L0M. With your seasonal textures that makes it even easier. I feel green grass in the winter is about to be a thing of the past.

4L0M, a few questions.

One, is it possible to increase the amount of snow for the light snow textures? They are not very snowy right now. I would try and fix them myself, but I have absolutely no ability when it comes to textures.

Second, is there any way to make snow cover appear in the months other than January through March? I would like to see some snow cover in December or April on occasion.

Thanks.

Fall already has two sets of terrain tiles, one with snow and one without snow. As a result, December is fully capable of having snow on the ground (per the weather conditions).

Spring / Summer on the other hand, only have one set of terrain tiles so no snow during either of these two seasons.

To get Spring to have snow, you either have to change the CFS3.exe or get OBD to create a "go around", unless you can get JJJ to possible figure out how to get snow to show up in April with his MS program.

Fullofit,

I can add a few more days with light snow cover, no problem. With JGSME, if you don't like it you can easily go back to my previous version. Looking over the files, I think adding a few more days of light snow cover might not be a bad idea.

PR is correct that you can can get light snow cover in December (I had forgotten about that), but I don't think you can get any medium or heavy snow in that month. My historical weather files call for medium and heavy snow cover on a few days in late December, but all I have ever seen is light snow.

BuckeyeBob, you know best. In reality I hate snow, but in WOFF I think the snow on the ground stays far too short. Then again, my idea of winter may be a little screwed, living in Canada and all that.

Any snow still there in the Great White North, eh? biggrin

Yeah, your view might be just slightly skewed, I suppose. Still, a little more light snow cover won't hurt anything, and might add a little more "chill" to the overall atmosphere. Too much green grass can be boring, too!

If you are curious, I have compiled some statistics about how many days (out of 90) have snow cover on the ground in 1.44 of the weather mod. Don't click if you don't want to know!


1915: Heavy = 10 Medium = 26 Light = 22 Total = 58
1916: Heavy = 14 Medium = 22 Light = 16 Total = 52
1917: Heavy = 17 Medium = 27 Light = 17 Total = 61
1918: Heavy = 10 Medium = 20 Light = 10 Total = 40

I can break it down to month by month, if you want to know that, too!

Bob, my snow shovel is still within reach (just in case).
Seeing those numbers all I can do is wish for weather like this here. I suppose all those cannon explosions kept the temperature higher than usual, hence such minimal snow accumulation on the ground. That’s how I explain it to myself. rolleyes

Snow is just like it should be, if we are talking about Flandres. Normally in Januari is here the coldest, not december.

True, but December 1916 was maybe the coldest and snowiest on record.

All depents on the region, I know in France it could be cold, but if talking about -4C over 4days in Belgium as cold then I guess you are right.
Belgium and the Netherlands do have a sea climate so, we have all kinds of weather only not the extreme. Only the Ardennes are snowy.

Good points, Dutch, which is why I am being careful not to add too much heavy or medium snow cover in this update. As you know, light snow cover in the game is very light and can easily pass as light snow showers, flurries, and even frost on the ground, so it won't alter the "weather' in any significant way, other than make it "feel' colder.

I appreciate the feedback, particularly from someone with more direct experience with the weather patterns in Europe. For instance, in the States, weather fronts generally come from the west and northwest. Is that also true in northwest Europe? Do big snowstorms come from the west, or are they more likely to come from the northeast, via Siberia? I can use this information in future updates to the wind direction in my cloud mod.

In the winter eastwind wil bring dry frost mostly, because this wind is going over dry frosty land. Normally no snow only because of the wind it feels like being in Siberia.
Nothern wind will also bring in frost, but also snow that will stay. The air did catch up moistere from the warm undeep nordsea and the cold air will freeze this to snow.
The west wind comes from the Atlantic, only here the, UK pulls out the most extreme weather from the clouds, like the tick layers of snow or the big ice hail balls, sometime we get a part of the leftovers.

The wind from the south is moistly higher in temperture and when containing moistere it could bring every kind of percipitation, hail, snow, rain or glaze. But because the temperature does increase this will melt.

I did mention that in Januari, it is colder and that is the earth has cooled down, in februari, more sunlight is showing and sun means the earth is recieving heat.

I hope to have a "slightly snowier" historical weather mod update ready as soon as possibly tomorrow for those who like to experience a chill up their spine, at least while flying in the winter months. The update is almost entirely confined to added snow cover on the ground, so it will have little or no effect on clouds or precipitation.

Version 1.45 of the Historical Weather mod is now available here and at the bottom of the first post of this thread. I will also make a version of the mod available for Sandbagger for hosting on his website.

The biggest change to this version is the addition of several days of light snow cover on the ground for the winter months in order to better simulate the chilly weather during that time of year. I have also improved the transitions from light to moderate and heavy snow cover when appropriate. This update does NOT significantly change the weather in any other way, so cloud cover and precipitation is not affected. Keep in mind that the winters of 1916 and 1917 were historically cold and snowy, so expect to find a lot of snow on the ground for long stretches at a time during those years. Snow cover should be slightly more sporadic for the years 1915 and 1918.

I also made a few minor corrections to a couple of text entries, but the major change was the addition of the extra snow cover.

Thank you, Bob! It'll be like home now.

I'm using cloud mod 2.9.2 with the PR fog option selected. I've also been using the various versions of AnKor's blue triangles mod. Today I installed version 1.3 and selected the high end version for gameplay. On my second mission I had a sharply defined open square with fog surrounding it (I think this qualifies as fog anyway).

I've never noticed it looking like this before. I've no idea if it's the cloud mod, AnKor's mod, or the combination of the two. I have scenery and terrain set at 4.
