Description

FS Clouds 2000 is an add-on for Microsoft Flight Simulator 2000 . Its purpose is to add more realistic and varied clouds into the simulator, it works by substituting its cloud files for the flight simulators default cloud files on startup.

The flight simulator comes with three kinds of cloud. There's the 3D variety, these are the cirrus, stratus etc that can be accessed and changed and positioned via the flight simulator's advanced weather function. Then there's the 2D variety which become visible when the player is a set distance above/below the 3D clouds, and finally there's an overcast sky. The add on has three new 3D and 2D cloud sets in its library and one new overcast cloud set. Jet trails are also available as an option.

The install process puts an icon on the desktop for FS Clouds 2000. When launched this brings up a menu screen that allows the player to select the kind of clouds they want and either use them with an existing flight simulator scenario, or with a 'quick flight'.

FS Clouds 2000 comes with five scenarios, Foggy Approach, FS Clouds Introduction, Highways in the Sky, Nice Sunset, and Overcast Descent, that showcase the enhanced clouds. There's also an option to access existing flights, which can be either flights that have been saved by the player or supplied with 3rd party software, and use these with FS Clouds 2000. The Quick Flight option allows the player to select any airport in the flight simulator's library and start their flight on the ground or in the air, using any aircraft in conjunction with FS Clouds 2000
