Does TerraMaxx have snow, based on elevation and region?


Recommended Posts

The current version bases its automatic season selection on rules based on latitude, longitude, date, and temperature. Since altitude is highly variable within a scene, and we can only load one "season" at a time, we don't use it directly - but there should be some correlation between altitude and temperature. TerraMaxx works by replacing X-Plane's built-in land textures, so if X-Plane has classified a mountain peak as being in a permanent snowfield, that will still be honored. We work with X-Plane's terrain classification instead of replacing it.

We wouldn't represent winter in the jungle the same way as winter in the Alps, because the jungle would be at too low a latitude and too high a temperature for our "deep winter" season. Of course, TerraMaxx allows you to manually force whatever season you want, and we won't stop you if you choose to do that.
