How to add clouds to the sky

  • Hello gentlemen,I want to know how to add clouds to the sky,I installed volumetric cloud,But when it's sunny, it doesn't appear,do I need to set TC or weather files?Hope someone will reply me,thank

  • @ppzzz
    Play around with weather,xml.

    Look for tags with the word cloud. Can't help more than that because I play with the game graphics as they were intended by the Rockstar artists, in other words as the game was intended to look.

    Hopefully @a63nt-5m1th can help you.

  • @ppzzz
    Would need to know more about exactly what clouds you're talking about:

    • Are they vanilla clouds or are they created by a volumetric clouds mod?
    • What volumetric clouds mod is it? (link to it if you can).
    • Any other details you have etc

    As far as game files go, you can swap the clouds a weather uses with the '<CloudSettingsName>' line in weather.xml:



    ...\Grand Theft Auto V\mods\update\update.rpf\common\data\levels\gta5\weather.xml

    but if the clouds are created by a volumetric clouds mod, that may or may not work.
    Would need more info etc

  • @ppzzz Do you mean Quant's volum clouds? They are controlled by some weird settings in each timecycle like light_ped_rim_mult or bokeh settings.

  • @MissySnowie
    '<blur_vignetting_intensity>' (= 0.1 instead of 0.0) perhaps? (just comparing before & after files etc).

  • @JohnFromGWN thank you sir

  • @MissySnowie Yes, I am using quantv, I am going to try what you said, thank you

  • @a63nt-5m1th Sir, I am using quantv, I tried what you said, changed the cloud of w_cloud.xml weather to w_extrasunny.xml, but it is not cloudy like w_cloud.xml weather, then thank you for reply

  • @ppzzz
    Yeah, '<CloudSettingsName>' would only work if clouds were controlled vanilla. For QV volumetric clouds follow @MissySnowie's values :thumbsup:

  • @a63nt-5m1th I keep a small bottle of white paint from the Dollar Store on my desk. This way I can just paint clouds whenever i need them. Since it's water based, I also keep a soapy rag to wipe the screen when needed. Works really well.

  • @a63nt-5m1th Sir, I researched for a few days and found that quantv volume cloud is also affected by the data of hh_startRange hh_farRange hh_minIntensity hh_maxIntensity hh_displacementU hh_displacementV in tc,this is so weird

  • @a63nt-5m1th Sir, I also want to ask,Which data controls the shadows of the environment and the color of the dust on the sand,there is also the number of raindrops, I used the mod of real rain. The rain is like pouring water from the sky with a bucket, I tried to elongate the shape of the rain, but the amount of rain is still a lot
