I've definitely had clouds. Not separate fluffy cumulus clouds like WWII Fighters, but large banks that have caused me to lose sight of bandits.

Try to increase cloud detail. Maybe they are not shown if this is put at lowest.
I actually think that "overcast" is never encountered during campaign missions. Anyone?
But they may be selected in single missions as I recall.

One thing that is nice about them is, in multiplayer, that not only do the overcast obstruct your vision, it also breaks your lock if the enemy flies through the layer (diving low for instance). This can be very fun in multiplayer, but also very confusing. If flying above the clouds all you see is white and blue, and it is then very easy to get disoriented.

Trying to remember ze settings on my computer! - which is an near-impossible task fr zhis old brain!

I flew a career mission yesterday where there were two layers of cloud!, A low "mist" about 500m above GL, and another at 7000m- Awesome feeling to fight in an totally white "arena!"

I think I had a problem with the "perfect" weather on my computer when I used "glide" (Voodoo 3 3000 ), but it has dissapeared with direct 3D setting- I now have foul weather most of the time!

I had a mist shrouding the ground at my 262 'drome, yesterday! Pretty cool, like a Sherlock Holmes tale.

Uhmm?? I have the oldest 3D card (Voodoo 2 - 8Mb) and I have clouds in Glide and in D3D... I love to fly in the middle of them.

I've encountered overcast many times in BoB. I love to sneak around inside the clouds with my staffel, and then bounce unsuspecting hurries returning from combat against the extrasquads.

Snef: I've had overcast before in campaign missions. One of my last Spitfire campaign missions, in fact. It was in early '44 on fighter sweep to Wissant. Intermittent clouds beginning at around 8,000 feet and becoming solid at 11,000 feet. When I punched through the overcast layer I was at 12,000 feet and what a sight! Under the overcast layer I was in a drab grey world. Just on top of it I felt like I was skimming along a shimmering sea of white snow glistening in the sun! It was really beautiful!
