Cumulus clouds will replace the birds as the "natural" thermal visualization. Four Gmax generated scenery files for cumulus clouds and the required AirObjectVisuals.xml file are included. By Ed Dumas Sr.

These gmax generated clouds will mark thermals in FSX. There are four clouds that are quite distinctive and should be easy to recognize as not the usual FSX clouds. The photo, CloudsForThermals.jpg, shows their distinctive shapes. When the 'Natural' thermal visualization is selected these clouds will replace the default birds, which are nearly impossible to see.

Each thermal in FSX will have one cloud selected at random from the four available.
