Woo-hooo! thank you, hoongadoonga! We modders really appreciate feedback, especially the positive kind! I'm glad that you are enjoying the mod.
I assume you are also using JJJ65's Mission Editor? Some of the features in the cloud mod only appear if you also use the Mission Editor.
Speaking of the mission editor, and I hope I am not speaking out of turn, but I believe that JJJ is currently working on an update to the ME that will include several new features, including a small weather map overlay, complete with icons representing cloud and weather conditions over the front! I also plan to release another small update to the cloud mod that will hopefully coincide with the release of JJJ's updated mission editor.
Yes, I use the ME. I consider it to be essential now.
I do have a question about the cloud mod. There's a required "BB & PR clouds" folder and an optional "revised WOFF UE clouds" folder. I think of your mod as being a substitute for or a replacement of stock WOFF clouds. If I activate both of these folders at the same time am I doubling up on the clouds that I otherwise would have? I haven't done much testing but so far I like it better with the optional WOFF clouds folder disabled.
One more demo vid of the BB cloud and fog low: (be sure to set vid to 720 HD for best viewing)

Activating the optional "revised WOFF UE Clouds" folder replaces some of the original WOFF clouds with my own revised versions, but only those with identical file names. Most of the original WOFF clouds are still used, even if the option is enabled. The optional clouds are meant to be used in combination with the required BB and PR clouds, if the user so chooses.

I'm curious, what don't you care for in the revised WOFF UE optional clouds? Most of my revisions are small changes, such as wind speed or horizon fog color. Overall, some of the revised clouds may also be slightly "thicker" than some of the stock clouds, but not a whole lot different.

Well, so far I've actually flown only a couple of flights with it disabled so it's probably just the particular circumstances for those two flights. My assertion that "I haven't done much testing" was clearly a major understatement. I am really enjoying your mod.
Thank you, gentlemen. Your comments and encouragement help keep me going. Lou, I have to say I am extremely impressed by your work on the forts. Keep up the good work!
I think I may have one more update left in me. The new update, in addition to continuing to take advantage of some of the latest features of Jara's Mission Editor, will also add a few "lighter" heavy clouds, for more variety, to the "Heavy" and "SPrecip" weather types. I also plan to revisit the issue of cloud banding, at least in some of the worst offending clouds in the mod.
