Here's a screenshot of the new cloud system posted on ED's fb page. Looks promising.

Looks much better than what we currently have that’s for sure. They’ve posted screenshots of WIP clouds in years past, hopefully they can reach the finish line this time.

We should have different cloud types, 2-3 layers....
Offtopic : can I disable somehow the Cirrus clouds layer ? ( 30.000 - 40.000 ft high, look awful )

New weather / clouds is high on my wish-list for DCS. This would be a great Christmas present from ED.

NOTE if you try to get the smoke out of your airplanes you will notice that the smoke is dragged by the currents and moves towards the wind.
the clouds in DCS are still, they, like the smoke of your plane, should move in the direction of the wind.

It will happen: "multiple cloud layers" as well as "different cloud types".

I hope the new clouds will be able to merge with the horizon, when they are far away. At the moment the problem is that the curvature of the earth is not simulated and thus there is a gap between clouds and the horizon.
