    Train Sim World has nice weather features, except for thunderstorms. I would really enjoy seeing how Unreal Engine can handle thunderstorms. This should also come with dynamic weather. For example, your drive could start as clear, then a few clouds start to form, then darker clouds, then rain, then a full thunderstorm! What do you think?

    This would be great, but maybe not on the top of "the List".

    Dynamic weather was a nice addition to TS2018 -- but it took a while for it to be added. I do enjoy real weather in my flight simulations, but then weather is a big factor on flight - much more so than for land based transport. Like Wilbnil, I would like to see it included, but definitely not a priority for me at this point. Would rather see a Steam engine first :)

    I have seen dynamic weather on some Railworks scenarios and on one TSW Scenario in CSX HH.

    In CSX HH, there was one where the snow was inn the scenery and then it melted (Ice and Snow) And in TS 20XX, it was a scenario on Miami-WPB. The clouds built up and made a thunderstorm.

    Before they improve the weather or add dynamic weather to the game, Id like to see the skybox improved. For a game that has such beautiful details up close, it sure would be nice to have a realistic sky, and maybe some shadowing based on the position of the sun in the sky.

    There are shadows according to the sun position.

    Is there? huh, I guess I've done most of my game play at noon or at night then. I'll have to go out of my way to do a custom time to check that out.
