    Default Clouds..! I need some advice from you all...

    I downloaded all the new cloud textures, the ones that come in two groups of five, then you select a group and put them into the proper textures folder. Problem is this, does anyone know how to get more then one type into the sim? And what settings do you use to show them off? broken, overcast? And what density works the best? I know, a lot of questions, any help would be appreciated. Also, do you have to download all 16 of those Alaska mesh files? Or is there a place to get them all at once? I don't care what the file size is.

    Here are some of those new clouds, set to overcast..

    Jeff,
    man, you must be a night owl like me!
    Those clouds look great, but I have the same questions as you do about using the combinations. I'll keep on eye out on what you learn about it.
    As far as the mesh, what I know from my FS2k experiences is that you must download each file. Each file covers a given sector of a state or region. Good luck!

    Hi Jeff...
    As long as your original cloud textures are backed up go ahead and experiment with mix and match from different sets...i've been having some success. Alaska is huge....and worth every file...works in CFS2 extra sweet as well, I might add.

    Cheers,

    Cool shot, I was going to try those realedge cloud replacements, do they really make a difference? And, cool Kiowa sig.

    Warbird,
    I'm still on the fence on the clouds, if I could make them (all 10) show up more frequently I would like them more.
