FSX Style Clouds on FS2004?

Recommended Posts

Hello,Been using FSX for a while but I just can't get a decent framerate on FSX using 3 monitors with 3 different views on my 3.0ghz Core2duo. I'm trying FS2004 now and I'm getting much better results and looks like the high settings on FS2004 looks better than the medium settings I have on FSX. My question is what cloud pay/free-ware do you guys recommend to get closer to FSX's REX2.0 Clouds?Thanks!

Just tried out those new grass textures in this package. It looks awesome, but its well over 2 MB when the original was only 40 or so KBs. Wondering if anyone can resize the new file to maybe 512x512 and make it a DTX3? Is that possible?

I also gave this freeware stuff a try. I must say I'm impressed.It looks very good and shows that sometimes freeware may surprise us more than some paid addons.I seem to have a strange problem though. I wonder if anyone noticed that or it's some kind of error on my side.Sometimes there is a sparse layer of clouds below me that move together with my aircraft. So I always see them regularly following me over the ground. Am I seeing things...?

I get that same problem with my hde clouds. It doesn't matter what plane or were I fly from or to. Today I flew from klas to kord fsdt klas and fsdt kord. I was using my level D 767 fs9.1 and windows xp sp3. It seemed a little hazy at take off. Then around 8000 it turned clear and I could see the top of this haze. I went up to fl370 and when I looked out the window there was this very thin cloud that moved with the plane all the way to kord. It was there whether in 2d, 3d, or spot view it was there like a circle around the plane about 10 to 20 miles diameter. I didn't see this until I installed hde.

Hi,That is the FS haze layer that will follow you around. You may have had a texture that disabled this layer and now the original type texture is back.

From my experience if the cloud texture is too large it adversely impacts performance reducing FS9 to FSX style framerates on moderate machines. Hopefully REX for FS9 can keep cloud texture size down to a minimum...
