273: FSX Clouds – Same Thresholds Apply

As the predecessor or more accurate the parent of P3D,  MS FSX of course possesses the same characteristics via changes from the Eight (8) Thresholds in Heights and Thicknesses as mentioned in the last two posts regarding cloud effects in P3D.


Base Height 0 feet Thickness 1 feet
Base Height 6,562 feet Thickness 3,000 feet
Base Height 19,686 feet Thickness 6,000 feet
Thickness 10,001 feet
Thickness 15,001 feet

Since the Thickness Thresholds are not always ending at zero, adding an extra 1 feet to the Thickness values would ensure the transformation of the cloud properly.
