When using a weather engine ( in my case FSGRW ) the grid is a little less apparent as the whole image is not one same cloud view like with a weather preset from P3D itself.

As Sharpness now looks good today I will look into the grid. 

Help from you guys is appreciated as there are multiple entries that seperately have to be tested with higher and lower values...

I posted a picture here with the addon FSGRW addon at EHAM this morning (dynamic weather. Yes it is less, but noticeable and more present compared to %.0HF2, or do you think it is equal?

Hi Marcus,

You are correct : it is a little less because of FSGRW but it still exists.

I did not use EA with HF2 so I do not know how an OC would have looked from high above the clouds.

That really looks MUCH better. Also much less repeatable clouds! Great result already now.

If you would like to share your settings, as it is, I will test this evening too. Also at the weekend I can take your parameters and play around with them......

Thanks, Marcus

Have clouds in flight simulation always had that "repeating pattern" problem? :huh: Gerard's second screenshot is a significant improvement over the first, but I can still see some repeating pattern underneath.

I would say yes, the repeating pattern was preset in simulating the clouds in every sim version that i can remember off. 

Gerard's "after" picture looks stunning

The repeating patterns is something that we will always see, it is about performance..

Remember LM and P3D will always put default values and settings to push performance at maximum posible.

Gerald send me these settings to my email I will suggest LM to put them as default for the upcoming hotfix.

Good job!  I wanted to find this sweet spot but they released 5.1 before I could do it.. Everything happened too fast this week..

Regards,

S.

It still is not how I want it. At one place it looks great. Then I change to another location and I see a grid again or weird looking clouds..

First I doubled the Sharpness value for Stratus and Cirrus. Then I used 1.9 for Cumulus and Cumulonimbus.

The better looking clouds were with Worley Noise at 1.9 for both Cumulus and Cumulonimbus.

We need a Cloud Smoothing where the grid appears..

Slightly different settings that looks better . Can someone test them ?

Cumulus + Cumulonimbus:

worley noise : 0.9

worley scale : 4.0

edge sharpness : 2.7


Cirrus :

churn : 0.2
