Please Asobo, fix this mess asap. Thank you.

I’m well aware that in real life, cloud bases in METARs are strictly AGL. Rather, it would seem after a few tests, that in the sim they are all being rendered as MSL altitudes.
For example, at Reno this morning the METAR read OVC050. However, the clouds were at the surface, which just happens to be at 5000’ MSL. Th…
