Cloud cover

Welshflyer Guest

Sorry to be back , but i need your expertise again i'm afraid. Could anyone please tell me how to get that carpet of cloud that extends as far as the eye can see in FS9 like you could in 2002. I've tried 8/8 clouds and lots of different variations in user defined weather,even when i choose grey and rainy or major thunderstorm as soon as i leave the airport environment the cloud cover clears.Your help would once again be greatly appreciated.

Apparently FS9 does not simulate overcast skies... isn't that great? Even with Active Sky 6 you can't get the "blanket" effect Rolling Eyes

Don't know what your talking about, I get totally overcast all the time, when it is actually overcast. Its totally overcast at my house right now and when I fly over in FS it'll be exactly the same.

Climb and cross the cloud cover, fly on top. Can you see the ground? Yes you can. You should be seeing only clouds.

Might wanna check the overcast enhancement feature. Never had a problem.

Here was flying over my house an hour ago.

Thanks for your reply Bindolaf.Once again you good people at flyaway have come up with an answer.Bit strange for a flightsim not to have overcast weather though! Perhaps all the designers live in Sunny climates.

Thanks Solotwo, posted my reply before i saw yours,i'll check it out.

Solotwo, sorry to be a pain in the ****,but could you tell me where the overcast enhancement is i can't seem to find it .I've checked advanced weather, clouds,visibility etc and tried that.I took off with low visibility, clouds set to 8/8 and climbed to 8,500ft using instruments due to no visibility and thought this is looking good.I broke through the clouds, had a look around and guess what? Yup, broken cloud and a nice view of the Seattle area.Are you using realtime weather option with snapshots off the internet, if so i can't do that because my internet connection is not on when i use FS9.

I meant that post to Bindolaf regarding an option you can use with Active Sky 6, are you using that or the default ms setup?

Welshflyer Guest

I'm using the default setup, i don't have active sky but thanks for getting back to me. Sorry for the delayed reply, i just did a quick flight from EGFF to LEAL.

Solotwo, i just read the posts for FSX and you said when can we get rid of the guest feature.I hope you did'nt mean it and you were just letting off some steam because without you and so many others help, a lot of us out here would be lost.Flyaway is without a doubt the most knowledgeable,friendly and informed Flightsim site there is.I know some of us guests appear to be as dull as dog**** but not all of us are.By the way that's a compliment.
