I think there should be actual weather effects and I mean something other than just some rain and random lightning.
Maybe waves on the ocean(Severity depends on the storm, and I do mean the big rolling waves).I'd also like to be able to set the editor to December and possibly see snow and different textures for everything.(Provided the coordinates are allow snow to appear at all, and I do know that you can set coordinates in the CPP)
Come to think of it, weather(specifically wind) should affect aircraft, boats/ships(See the above wave idea), and weapons(Like bullets and missiles).

I know the end of the campaign:
You stand on a hill and hold your weapon in the air because you won. Than suddenly a lighting comes and you are toasted http://www.flashpoint1985.com/ikonboard301/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif
Or you are a special operative, land with a boat at a beach and suddenly the flood comes and you drown... http://www.flashpoint1985.com/ikonboard301/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif
Or you are on another mountain and its a vulcano http://www.flashpoint1985.com/ikonboard301/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif that would be really bad if it brakes out http://www.flashpoint1985.com/ikonboard301/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/crazy.gif

Yes, very important- particularily for the Vietnam scenarios. Monsoon weather could reduce the visibility so no air operations will be possible forcing us to use PBR or APCs for insertion/extraction/resupply, etc.

How about some fatigue instead of just heavy breathing? this would be great during those really hot days in 'Nam.

More and better weather efects sounds nice, and i would really like to see sea waves, it would add great life to the endless dead ocean of death http://www.flashpoint1985.com/ikonboard301/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/crazy.gif , i dont see why weather should change with time season, i know it would be realistic but it has far better to have the option of choosing weather condition when mission editing, is it not http://www.flashpoint1985.com/ikonboard301/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif .
Gasping when you are up to your chin in water nice. http://www.flashpoint1985.com/ikonboard301/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif

It would be good if the weather affected soldiers performance. Standing on stag in wet cold weather would make the sentry less aware and so easier to approach. Similarly the soldiers aim should be affected by heavy breathing due to the heat or chattering teeth in the cold!
What i would also like to see are skies more like what Kegety did, the normal ski like its now really sucks http://forums.bistudio.com/oldsmileys/wink.gif
