FS2K4 clouds..love em, but...

Recommended Posts

There's an odd bug in there somewhere. We've been having afternoon thunderstorms here lately, and they are getting the weather done right. Big puffy CBs all over, wonderful to wind thru in the late afternoon sun.But it appears there's a perspective problem somewhere. Many darker, smaller and apparently more distant low clouds show through the closer bigger clouds. So you get the effect of the more distant, slower passing clouds are looking closer, showing in front of the faster moving closer clouds. Also noticed this enroute at night, the low puffies showing in front of the closer, faster passing thin cirrus layer.Anyone else noticed this? I also wish that in spot view the plane would "fog out" as you pass thru clouds...After the dteailed clouds, it's really difficult to turn them off...nothing else like them!Dave

I'll tell you right now the imposter clouds in this game are very odd. They are jagged and generally ugly, and they have that strange distance effect that you mentioned. Even if you have a lower-spec PC, I highly suggest putting the 3D cloud slider at 100%.-Derek
