would anyone else like to see more clouds in fb?think it would be great if you could vary cloud cover from 0% to 100% or 1/10 to 10/10. This would be more realistic as we all know that there are days when the blue sky is a distant memory!
It would be cool to completely loose a guy on your 6 o'clock by diving into a sea of clouds!
What does everyone think?would it be possible?

More clouds up would not be bad! Elegant cumulus clouds.

It is possible now.

Try flying in a thunderstorm, lotsd of clouds here.

I know what you mean by the different types and the veritable carpet of clouds though. Have not seen that yet and would hate to see performance when using them.

THere must be some tricks that can be used to make this happen though - like deleting the map below the clouds once you are above it

Deleting the map below would be a bad idea, then it would have to be loaded back into memory when you went below the clouds. The problem is that the clouds are rendered as 3-D objects. In fact, they don't even move. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif Huge clouds and improved weather would be great. Weather is obviously a dominant factor in the skies, but very hard to add on top of everything else. The best sims so far just make weather look good, but can or at least have not modeled it in much detail.

B-17 II The Mighty Eighth has wonderful clouds when flying up high - so it is possible. But this would probably mean major re-coding of the game and I don't think Oleg and his boys are prepared for this kind of refurbishing of the game.
