Well, well. I come back from work and find this. Well done Gentlemen! You could give OBD run for the money at the rate you release updates. winkngrin
Thank you for all your hard work to both of you and you know what BuckeyeBob? I hope you have very long sleeves!

Thank you, guys, for kudos but I am just humble selfstudent of programming. Without your support, suggestions and ideas the Mission Editor would never be as is now.

Jara, are you maintaining the "ReadMe" file for the mission editor or do I need to update it for the last couple of your releases?

I am sorry to say but updating/writing Manuals, Help and Readmes is my true nightmare, so, no update since your latest issue nope.
I would be very grateful if you do it (again) .

A nice addition to the ME is the inclusion of information about wind direction in the weather manager box. Previously, wind direction was limited to around 12 different directions determined by WOFF. Now, with the cloud mod and the ME, wind direction can come from any direction around the compass, so having that information can be critical to determining your flight plan.

Of course, the ME still retains the ability for the user to manually select his wind direction if he so chooses. You also can either let the ME determine wind speed or manually enter wind speed values yourself. Lots of flexibility!

Finally, and I hope I am not giving away too much information prematurely, but soon the ME will also allow the user to manually insert new planes such as the French Longhorn or the Morane Bullet into the campaign, either as an AI or player flyable aircraft!

It seems that all things are possible (almost) with the ME. BTW, has anyone invited JJJ65 to join the BOC? I can't think of anyone more deserving--and barmy--then he. At the very least, he is certainly in need of a good paddling!

And I want to say that BuckeyeBob's latest weather mods are just fantastic. I've been enjoying them all along, but in the last two versions of Jara's ME, all the work BuckeyeBob has been doing with the weather has just come together so well, and looks just fantastic!

Thank you, BuckeyeBob salute

Oh, I have even better things in store! I don't want to jinx it, but I think I have discovered a way to make the fog (and some other clouds) look even better. Without going into details, it involves a couple of overlooked variables in each cloud file.

So, it looks like there will be a version 2.6 of the cloud mod. And just when I thought I might be able to rest awhile!

Hi BuckeyeBob, I had a chance to fly a few more missions end enjoy your mod immensely but I've noticed something odd. There are a lot of clouds that repeat. Is there a way to reduce the repeating clouds? Perhaps a 'lite' version? See the picture below.

I can certainly look into it, but it's a bit like searching for a needle in a haystack. Do you know the name of the cloud file in question? Do you recall if the weather was described as Light, Variable, or Scattered? If you haven't run another mission since then and you use Jara's ME, you can open his mission editor log file and near the end of it, it will list the cloud file used for that flight. All of that might help me narrow it down. Also, the problem may be due to the drawing of the texture itself, which I lack the ability to change.

As always, thanks for the comments and thanks for using the mod.

BuckeyBob, thanks for investigating. Unfortunately I've flown a few missions since, but it is a common occurrence, so I'll take a look at the logs next time I see it. I don't think it's a problem with the texture though. I would think it's got more to do with WOFF placing the texture, any cloud texture too many times. But my knowledge of the subject is a little bit cloudy.

Personally, I think it's just a genetic anomaly due to frequent in breeding by the cloud mating, much like the Spanish royal lineage centuries ago. All we need is some new blood in the lines so to Speak! biggrin

Are you cirrus? I always thought when more of the vaporous entities were needed they simply made withdrawals from the cloud banks. Now don't I feel like the perfect cumulonimrod.

Lou, looks like you've mist the latest study on cloud reproduction. Don't feel bad it's not an exact science and could be rather hazy at times.

Fullofit, thanks for directing my attention to the study. You’ll have to excuse my density as concerns it, I believe it's dew to the fact that I have reached my saturation point on all of this.

I am more inclined towards a dry sense of humor.
