    Let me know if you find an answer, I've been waiting to try this plane out since the new version was released!

    How to get an solid overcast for IFR?

    Thank you very much! I look forward to seeing the results in the next release! I did experiment with stratus cloud thickness per your suggestions and if I get a layer with hexagons, I just change the "thickness" and it's fixed! I wish x-plane weather would only let you build stratus layers that are actually realistic. Thanks again for your prompt and professional response! I love SMP! --Dirt

    Ok, I’ll try it and let you know. Based on the other post regarding weird geometric clouds, it seems like there a “goldilocks” zone for solid stratus — too thin and you can see through the layer and “unnaturally thick” and you get hexagons in your clouds. Does that seem accurate? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    @michael.mcgregory here the super-simple script (it's my first one incidentally -- it only dims the airport lights, no other surrounding lights. That made them dark enough for me, but you can dim them anywhere down to 0.000001 if you want in the script. Enjoy. Dirt airport_lights_jgc.lua

    How to get an solid overcast for IFR?

    I ran into another interesting issue today with Skymaxx. I set a stratus layer manually over New York, and selected "solid stratiform" but I could see through the layer when I was above it. When I descended into it, it was legit IFR, though, and everything looked good underneath the layer as well. Why/how can you see through stratus clouds and is there any way to fix it? Thanks, Dirt

    Re-downloaded RWC and Skymaxx pro with no NOAA plugin....still happened today at KORD I think. Real-world weather selected. This was on the "broken stratiform" setting. It went away when I selected "HD Puffs". Any idea what else I can try? Thanks, Dirt

    Referring to my problem above, maybe the issue is with Gizmo? The log has some errors -- attached: "debug: 4969.528: Firmware v17.08.08.0320 debug: 4969.532: X-Plugins OBJ8 Loader v15.01.11 debug: 4969.711: * gxt.refresh().. debug: 4969.713: gxt: AutoLoading.. debug: 4969.716: gxt.load: Console debug: 4969.716: gxt.load: ToolTray debug: 4969.717: gxt.load: HotFix debug: 4969.717: gxt.load: Mute debug: 4969.718: gxt.load: Preferences debug: 4969.718: gxt.load: RebootButton debug: 4969.718: gxt.load: GateKeeper debug: 4969.719: X-Aviation Licensing: Load license.. debug: 4969.721: X-Aviation Licensing: License is valid. debug: 4970.132: gxt.load: MAXX_RWC debug: 4970.133: gxt.load: Shell debug: 4970.137: gxt: Completed AutoLoad. debug: 4970.137: X-Aviation Licensing: End User. debug: 4970.137: Not a Verified X-A Developer.

    How to get an solid overcast for IFR?

    After experimenting with SMP settings and default weather with limited success, I thought it might be more effective to dim the runway lights so they’re harder to see. I think they’re mostly too bright anyway, but i made a very very short lua script that edits the dataref responsible for runway light brightness at all airports. I can post it later if anybody cares. Also i like it because at night the airports don’t stand out quite so much from the other city lights (makes you look at your instruments!) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I’ve been seeing the same thing. I had the NOAA plugin but i’ve since deleted it — did re-installing RWC fix this, boeing? I like using stratoform settings to practice instruments so i don’t want to write them off as unusable. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I think I did run the installer that was available in the downloads section. It ran an X-aviation script and asked for my x-plane directory. It downloaded the plane, but gave me the error message at the end. I’ve tried it multiple times... Thanks! —dirt Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Hey, I'd really like to try this plane, but I get the following error message from the installer: "unable to download: component file version does not match" Was I supposed to download the xplane 9 version and upgrade it? This seems like a good x-aviation installer, I don't understand. Running 11.11r2 on Mac OS. thanks! -- Dirt
