Guys we can’t get for now better Cloud graphics becasue its limited by the Unreal 5 Engine i think. Becasue the clouds from the unreal 5 Engine looks same as the clouds in the msfs 2020. Which you can see in this video

So i think it cant give better graphics for the clouds becasue of how i sayd there are limite dby the enginen and we have to wait to the unreal engine 6 or higher to get better clouds i think. or m i fasle because i think unreal 5 use cloud presets which you can use and you can they coustomize a bit.
Volumetric clouds is a particular algorithm… you can’t change much about it, but it does have certain quality levels to make it less “wooly” on the edges. The variation added in MSFS (not in Unreal) is in the lighting and transparency of clouds… and their placement and altitude, of course… MSFS has layered clouds, I don’t think Unreal allows that now, in their API. But to be honest, my experience with the Unreal platform is DX-11 and about 3 years ago… maybe in the mean time, Unreal has upgraded their volumetric clouds, to be layered and multilevel, because of the cooperation with Microsoft and Asobo ? Good development helps both sides… but as customers, we can only speculate.
I am on the „the clouds are great“ side too. Almost.
And they are not to bright imho. Maybe just a little because the most of our displays can not reproduce pitch black so the whole world is always a bit washed out. Also, without hdr, their dynamic range is limited.
In fact, the real sky can be eyehurting bright too. What we lack are simple sunglasses.
Depends on where you’re flying in that cloud actually… Right under a cloud, you get less light. But I agree it is too much, and too much the same everywhere, on the aircraft livery. In reality, you see moving shadows of the clouds on the aircraft. They can’t manage that without stutters, I guess… These effects are very expensive in FpS.
