Combining the cirrus clouds, cumulus clouds, and the sky simulation.

This one will need to render overnight :)

Can you define an arbitrary mesh as bounds for the volume + apply noise to 'fade' / distort the edges? Thinking thick plumes of smoke, shaping clouds, making sponges, etc. ;)

Was thinking the same, the edges of the clouds make them look a bit like foam or something. Last render looks really cool though!

Yeah the edges on the cumulus clouds are deliberately quite sharp. I think think they may be a bit sharp considering the cloud height and size though.

Yeah! Soften those edges a bit, and I'm totally buying that! :)

Yeah, very cool! Hopefully we will be able to make things like this soon

Out of curiosity, how will this be handled with regard to the UI? Hopefully there will be a newbie friendly system. :D

Ladies and Gentlemen,
we have now reached our cruising altitude of 28000m.
To the left of the aircraft you can see the desert of average albedo, and to the right as well.
I hope you enjoy your trip aboard the spacecraft/high altitude plane 'Indigo'.
