fs9 clouds/weather

Recommended Posts

this question was brought up earlier but there didnt seem to be a response that seemed to work. I have FSUIPC (newest version) and use updated weather from Jeppessen and the internet. I also use the low FPS clouds. Today with both of my flights I noticed this and it really got under my skin. On the ground at DTW the sky was overcast and there was fairly low visibility, I'd say around 2500. After takeoff I approached the overcast sky. Here is the problem, as I approach, the overcast becomes not as overcast and the clouds break. The clouds dont seem thick either. Once I get over the clouds, it becomes clear or scattered clouds. The same thing happens as I get lower. It went from clear to a little cloudy around 5000, then when I get to 2500, the sky becomes overcast and lower visibility. I did another flight right after from ORD-ATL and the same thing happened. I want a realistic weather environment where I can fly in clouds for a while or not have a completly different weather scene just pop up at me out of nowhere. Would a program like active sky help? What should my fsuipc settings and FS weather settings be? ThanksBrad Zimmer

DITTO!!!!!!!!!!!! How in the heck to you get around this goofy overcast/visibility glitch in FS9? I don't fly FS2004 very much at all because of both this and the screwed up violent wind shifts inherent with real-world FS2004 online weather. I thought the payware version of FSUIPC could resolve this issue in FS2004 but apparently it has very limited functionality with FS2004 in comparision to FS2002.
