Martin,We'll make a point of taking a closer look at FSW. Most of my screenshots were taken with FSW cloud textures, and I think they look wonderful! http://www.simulationwidgets.com/Screenshots.htmFrom Weather Center's point of view, FSW is a texture replacement program, and Weather Center's job is to make sure it chooses the proper cloud type for the observed surface conditions. If there is more to it, then we may have to make ourself more current with what FSW offers!Weather Center does take advantage of the various cloud types that Flight Simulator uses. For instance, if TCU or CU is at the end of a cloud description field in a METAR (e.g. BKN050TCU), then cumulus clouds are used. For clouds that are around areas of convection, such as thunderstorms, we use the Nimbus type. Clouds above FL400 are assigned the cirrus type. Fog can be configured to use cirrus or stratus. I believe FSUIPC can inject the high level cirrus clouds and jet-trail textures itself, so we left that feature out of Weather Center.Thank you for the suggestion.Keith
