Cloud/sky texture problems

Recommended Posts

Evening guys,


I was hoping i could get some help with my clouds and sky textures, i think maybe i've installed too much, and i kind off need to klnow what of the following i need to uninstall to get a good PTA result.

This is what i currently have installed:

- REX Soft Clouds
- PTA 2.0 (With Pedrag's preset, wich is how i would like for it to look)
- Freeware cloud textures
- Active Sky


This is everything i have that can affect clouds and sky.
What do i need to uninstall here to get a better result?


As you can see in the screenshots below, my clouds just seems flat, and scattered, compared to the shot by Pedrag.
And the ground shadows looks very edgy and ugly compared to the last shot.

Thanks for the help!

Probably what you stated, too much going on.


I use REX for my clouds, and they look pretty good (at least for me)




Here's another example:




Again, I'd take off everything, and start again. Install one by one until you find the problem, or are happy with what you see.

start with AS16 and REX and see how it looks. If you have conflicting mods using PTA and Envtex you'll be able to tell quickly. I'd also suspect freeware cloud textures - unless you are careful the REX clouds will overwrte them or vice versa.


Also, the cloud shapes will depend on the metar. Use AS16 to locate some stormy weather and see how that looks.

Go to weather, and click on the custom weather dot, then on custom weather tab, then click on the next custom weather tab, click on the + to add a layer and make a layer of cumulus from about 3000'-8000', then a layer from about 12000'-17000', then a layer from about 35000'-40000'.


Set them to about 1/2 or 5/8 coverage.


Then instead of the flat, multi popcorn clouds you will hVE THICK BEAUTIFUL CLOUDS.
