Hi,same here, SP1 installed Build 355 running FS9, ASA via WideFS. Most notable case on my last flight when I was descending into VHHX, Kai Tak. There was supposed to be a broken layer of clouds, but the closer I got to Hong Kong, the less clouds there were in the sky. Then poof! and all clouds were gone and when I was over the CH VOR, poof! again and I finally got my broken layer of clouds in accordance to METAR - quite spectacular, I might add. :(Regards,Jure

Hi John,To be honest, since the release of ASA and then the patch I have not had too much time to fly anything. If I have had time, it has been with FS04 as it loads much faster on my machine and I have more planes for FS04. I may not have time until 2 weeks from now, when I am on Winter Break.Thanks,

Hi Jim,Have you had time to look into this issue? When DWC enabled every 10 minutes immediate cloud changes occur. Very noticable when flying around 10,000.

Hello all,This is documented (in the ASA docs) and a known issue with DWC. It is a result of the inability of FSX to allow any changes to cloud coverage without making a hard rewrite of weather, which causes a cloud shift. Please see the documentation for further information.We have been working hard on creative solutions to this to minimize this effect and while we cannot promise anything yet, we appear to have made some breakthroughs.Best,
