Here's another way to vary the clouds:

Backup your /tex folder first!

unzip and put the cloudbuster.bat and two folders into your /tex folder

Populate the folders with your various cloud files, giving each a unique name or number

When you run the .bat, it will choose file at random from each folder, copy to /tex and rename clouds 256.tga and cloudsnoise.tga

Change your map.inis to reference these cloud file names


I have the bat set to run from a shortcut which runs the .bat then starts IL2

Istvan, I really liked your previous version, one thing stood out a bit (I tried to make a cloud mod myself but it looked BAD :) ):
Can you make a seamless texture, in the beautiful version I used as base for MTO, there is one point in the sky where the texture starts again ..that was the case with all coloured clouds I checked. :-\\
Thanks cheers

That looks like a nice easy solution. So four, or five missions on the same map could each have different high clouds. I'll try it soon.

Stole and frankened one version to a Sidi Ifni sky. :D

Only changed the colours, lol, BTW these coloured cloud tex influence the colour of the sun and also seem to have an effect on the landscape colours. In this case 17.00 looked really cool.
