I did a bit of experimenting with weather settings. I have them moderately high, with user defibed settings that give me some control of wind, gusts, shear, etc.. With the weather I created, I did not see any impact of FPS. Note, this is on a low end machine and the only purpose in displaying them is to give an idea of what can be done with less than wonderful resources.

Did you try this weather tool for FSX.
I have it but haven't tried it yet.

I tried to get it last night, but the link was bad. I just checked. It still is bad.

Nice to see you are getting some fairly detailed clouds and not slaughtering the FPS, like sometimes happens in FS9.

Seems a bit more life like as well; theres three different types of cloud in the first shot, which you don't normally see in FS9.

Thanks Thumbs Up!

That is why I opted for user defined weather. It also means I can dispense with the Censored haze layers which look terrible on this computer.
