Weather -- How to Make a Solid Cloud Floor?

Pro Member Trainee

I'm trying to create a weather theme with clear on top/ solid white cloud floor below and having no luck. I can never seem to completely obscure my view of the ground while maintaining clear conditions on top. I only get my ground view down to "murky", with ground not disappearing until I drop down into my low viz zone...

Any suggestions for settings that would achieve what I'm looking for?

I've always wanted to do that aswell.

I use ActiveSky but still, On that if i set it to have solid cloud floor at around 5000ft as soon as i get above the cloud's this cloud floor diserpearce?

I gave up doing it, after i never able to make a solid cloud floor, i just couldnt be bothered to carry on trying anything else.

In FSX this is quite simple, as you can create your own wheather and cloud altitudes and precipitation/densities, Its been a long while since I've used FS9 so I cant remember if that can be done. I'm also using activesky, this does help a bit.
