Using ASP3D with REX SF how do I set these two setting in order to use AS for Wx eng but SF for clouds? P3Dv5.2 set up EA on and vol clouds off  

ASP3D "Prevent ASP3D EA Volumetric Cloud Control in P3Dv5" 

ASP3D "Enable detailed EA clouds in P3Dv5"

OK got it figured out and working great.

In the first place the manual says the above two settings don't apply to v5.2. But just in case, I set both ON.  In FSUIPC6 I start REX SF first then ASP3D. I went through all the SF settings to disable all the Wx engine related settings and those that require the SF Wx engine. 

My cloud and wx depiction with P3D EA on and vol clouds off is really great!

The manual is not very clear on these settings. Now one setting it says applies to 5,1 and up but the other says 5,1... Anyway "Prevent ASP3D EA Volumetric Cloud Control in P3Dv5" require P3D vol clouds ON so doesn't apply to my situation. Having them both checked works fine for me.
