View Full Version : The New Clouds

07-08-2005, 11:19 PM
I have a merged Il2FB+AEP+PF install patched to 4.01m. I wanted to turn on the new clouds, so I went to my IL2 folder, opened up a file named conf and look for the TypeClouds= line in the text editor so I could turn on the new clouds. I had no such luck, the line itself appeared, to not appear.

Any help?

Under the [game] entry in the conf.ini, you have to add the line TypeClouds=1
Online, the host needs to have the feature enabled in order to see the effect.

So the line doesn't already exist, I have to add it manually?

Do I need to add it in any specific place, like in alphabetical order or something. Or can I just pop it in at the beginning or end of the list of [game] configurations?

Yes, you have to add it manually.
No, there's no specific place. I added it at the end.

If memory serves, the new clouds are enabled by default.

The line you refer to needs to be added to the conf.ini only as a means of switching them off if required.

0 = off.
1 = on.

New clouds

The new patch introduces brand new clouds. In order to use them you must manually edit the conf.ini file located in your main game folder before launching the game. Open the file with a text editor, locate the [game] section and in the TypeClouds= line write in either 0 or 1, then save the file.

TypeClouds=0 - old clouds
TypeClouds=1 - new clouds

When playing online the player will see the cloud type set by the server, and not as individually set in their conf.ini. This is done to ensure all players see the same tactical situation in the air regardless of their settings.
