clouds never cover the whole sky

clouds only emerge around the plane, the horizon is always clear......
is it the way it is? i tried to increase "draw distance" value a little higher, but the performance dropped significantly, i think they could use 2d bitmap clouds in the distance with little effect on the performance...

There is a cloud draw distance setting - try the 3D cloud slider too.

What spec PC do you have?

i did that, then the FPS got choppy.
My PC specs: 3.0 P4, 1.5 GB SDDR, radeon 9800 pro video, intel MB.
i pretty much have to use ultra high setting which only sets draw distance for 40 miles as i remember, anything higher would make the frame rate stutter.
but at 40000 feet high, 40 mile radius is only a small area...

Thats a reasonably high spec PC and I wouldn't expect it to happen. I had a 9800Pro but upgraded to PCI-Express and it was super smooth, perhaps that is a little bit of a bottle neck?

It IS a pain when you have this problem because you have to sacrifice detail for frame rates. Try turning the terrain detail to 20% (I got that tip from MegaScenery) and turn the auto-gen stuff down.

FS Sky World adds some clouds on the horizon.
