I just posted my FS-X version of "Soft Horizons" in the file library. I think you'll find it enhances the appearance of clouds and low vis conditions. You might want to try that out until you settle on one of the more sophisticated packages. "Soft Horizons" should also work with any enhanced cloud bmps for FS-X, although it's not compatible with alternative environment or sky enhancements since most such packages share the same textures. I've tried to make the uninstall of SH painless if you choose to return to the default textures--I include a cmd file which backs up the defaults, which you can restore whenever you wish.Regards,John
