MSFS 2020 Mod: Floyds Epic Clouds V1.7C

Here are options for a set of 20 or 70 cloudscapes with a spread of properties to provide beautiful and realistic environments for your flights.

You might then be wondering what to expect, as sinful_regal did:
“This mod is amazing. I highly suggest you download it. You will never go back to Microsoft crap defaults again. Floyd’s clouds are integral to simming guys and girls. I didn’t know what to think, but after using it for the first time, it is well worth all the great reviews.”

Epic Clouds & Live Weather?
I would like to provide dynamic clouds, but Microsoft hasn’t provided an official means to be able to do that. I do research this possibility from time to time but I don’t want to make something that could potentially fall apart after a sim update. See also: Frequently Asked Questions

Epic Clouds & FPS?
Each cloud preset has an FPS cost as does everything else in the sim. Translucent clouds use more than opaque ones. You can maximize your PC configuration for flight simulation here: Note: MSFS 2024 will access all your CPU cores and give you an increased capability to provide stutter-free flights.
