Hi guys, now bear with me for I am not a smart man but I have an idea. Is there any way to change the broken clouds in ase to overcast clouds? What i mean is, would it be possible to copy the overcast textures or files and paste them into the broken clouds folder so whenever ase downloads real weather it thinks it's putting in broken clouds but your seeing overcast clouds?

Hi,

my first recommendation: change some values in your FS9/FSX.cfg file; like that:

for FS9

go to: Username --> AppData --> Roaming --> Microsoft --> FS9 and open the FS9.cfg file;

find this value: CLOUD_COVERAGE_DENSITY and change it to higher number, CLOUD_COVERAGE_DENSITY=12.

 

for FSX

go to: Username --> AppData --> Roaming --> Microsoft --> FSX and open the FSX.cfg file;

find this value: CLOUD_COVERAGE_DENSITY and change it to higher number, CLOUD_COVERAGE_DENSITY=12.

 

I think 12 is the biggest value. Higher numbers (≤ 12) will improve the clouds density so you are able to see (finally) a real overcast (if reported in METAR or when set). But I'm afraid you thought to change the textures, to see the BKN clouds as a total OVC, correct? (In that case, I don't know how to change that, sorry.) So if there was reported BKN in the METAR, you would like to see a total OVC?

 

So please let me/us know to go on,

Adam

"if there was reported BKN in the METAR, you would like to see a total OVC?" Hi Adam, yes that is what i am asking. I have a feeling it can't be done, but thanks for the info :) I will see if this new REX program coming out in a few days will do anything.
