A new feature is ready for your testing.
We have come up with an idea of launching hot air balloons once in a while over YoWindow landscapes.
Pay attention it is available in Release Candidate only.

The launch of a balloon is a rare event.
We are afraid of overloading landscapes with fancy objects.
A balloon is launched once an hour in average.
I'm sure you don't want to wait for so long.
So we have added a secret shortcut.
Press Ctrl-B to instantly launch a new balloon.
The balloon will be launched either from left or right, depending on wind direction.
Make sure the wind is strong enough.
Balloons are not launched if wind speed is less than 2 m/s (2.23 mph)
The balloon is flying over all landscapes - Village, Seaside and Airport as well as picture landscapes.
Just like small white jets.
However, we are still not sure about this rule.
Probably, balloons are not applicable for some landscapes.
Ballons can fly in any time of the day or night.
Sometimes a balloon has a Sun picture over it, sometimes not, this is not a bug, just to increase diversity.
Pay attention that a balloon is randomly floats farther and closer, its speed depends on the wind force.
If you to launch too many balloons with Ctrl-B you will notice that their distance order is not correct.
It's ok, this problem will not happen under regular YoWindow usage.
Ctrl-B is a secret key combination
Pay attention how balloon altitude is controlled by a well qualified pilot
As usual, we will be happy to read your thoughts.
Guys, do you like balloons?
