Developer brothers Abdullah and Diya Almuntaser have shown off more preview screenshots of the upcoming Ultra Weather XP version 2.5. Abdullah's latest post on the Ultra Weather XP Facebook group claims that graphical work on the new version is now completed and that work has begun on implementing the new textures into UWXP's current framework.

"I would like to inform you that graphics works has been finished today, all sky's textures has been designed for all times and weather conditions with accurate sun lights effect on objects and on clouds during all times and weather conditions."

Threshold has previously reported that the developers are waiting for X-Plane 11.30 to become stable before releasing version 2.5.

The features of UWXP v2.5 include:

  • Two types of sky environments; Normal and Spectacular. Spectacular adds cinematic rays for the sun and deep foggy horizon.
  • 12 sets of skycolours (includes sun textures)
  • 12 sets of cloud textures. Each set has numerous different colours and resolutions.
  • New in-cloud effect. Currently in beta - expect video previews soon.
