The Clouds object renders realistic clouds that drift slowly across the sky. Both cloud cover and density can be adjusted, as well as cloud color to achieve atmospheres like stormy skies, moody sunsets, alien worlds, etc.

Setup

Dynamic clouds are managed through the Clouds object. This object can be placed anywhere for organization or replication, but clouds will only render if the object is parented under WorkspaceTerrain.

Cloud Properties

Cover

Clouds/Cover|Cover defines the cloud cover within the overall skyscape layer. Valid range is from 0 to 1 (sparse cloud cover to full cloud cover).

Density

Clouds/Density|Density controls the particulate density of clouds (the proportion of airborne water vapor particles at full cloud cover).

Color

Clouds/Color|Color controls the material color of cloud particles. However, cloud color is influenced by several Lighting and Atmosphere properties, so Clouds/Color|Color is not intended as a dedicated property to simulate colored sunsets, sunrises, etc.

Example Skies

The following combinations of Clouds, Lighting, Sky, Atmosphere, and other properties/objects may be useful in creating a base setting for your experience.
