Social networks were filled yesterday with images that seemed to be taken from Denis Villeneuve’s Blade Runner 2049. Hand in hand with a thick orange sky, the fog and the fires that are ravaging the forests of California, cities like San Francisco woke up with a look as beautiful to the eye as it is worrying on an environmental level.
The columns of smoke caused by the fires have reached such an altitude that even the players of Microsoft Flight Simulator that were flying over the area have been able to appreciate them thanks to the game’s meteorology system.
It is not the first time that Microsoft Flight Simulator collects the fires of California thanks to its representation of the clouds in real time. The following video (minute 7:54) also shows some of the fires at the end of August and how the smoke from them was reflected in the game.
