I have been doing testing to try and make thermals more realistic. Thermals don't just sit in one spot so I tried to replicate a thermal moving by having multiple thermal generators that would go dormant as the next one goes active. However I am finding that the dormant times and active times don't do anything. To test this I set the active time to the minimum and the dormant time to the maximum and still have lift. I am also having trouble understanding the difference between simple and dynamic thermals, the in game description doesn't make sense to me.
