"Completely overhauled weather module: The current FlightGear
2.4.0 version takes weather generation further by applying the laws
of physics to the reported conditions and by determining how the
atmosphere interacts with the terrain.
"FlightGear 2.4.0 introduces numerous graphical enhancements:
Now capable of rendering highly realistic mountain surfaces,
3-dimensional cityscapes, or shiny metallic surfaces. Water moves
realistically and sunlight is reflected from its surface. Many new
aircraft models are so realistic and detailed it is almost possible
to see oneself reflected in their hull."
