 +
 +There is also the option to set the intensity of turbulence in this layer as well as the visibility.
 +
 +By default the temperature is automatically calculated based on the ISA atmosphere, but values can be adjusted here as needed either by specifying the deviation from the ISA atmosphere or a temperature directly.

 +
 +==== Calculate Wind ====
 +
 +{{https://​www.fs-flightcontrol.com/​img/​manual/​features/​conditions/​custom-weather-calculate-wind.png?​nolink|}}
 +
 +This dialog allows you to visually change the wind direction and speed.
 +
 +Just click in the compass rose from where the wind should come from. The length of the arrow defines the wind speed.
 +

 +
 +Then it will calculate the cross wind component accordingly.
 +
 +==== Change Clouds ====
 +
 +{{https://​www.fs-flightcontrol.com/​img/​manual/​features/​conditions/​custom-weather-change-clouds.png?​nolink|}}

 +
 +:i: Note: The available options will vary based on the simulator and weather engine type.
 +
 +=== Coverage ===
 +
 +{{https://​www.fs-flightcontrol.com/​img/​manual/​features/​conditions/​custom-weather-change-clouds-coverage.png?​nolink|}}
 +
 +First you can select the coverage of the cloud layer.

 +
 +=== Height ===
 +
 +{{https://​www.fs-flightcontrol.com/​img/​manual/​features/​conditions/​custom-weather-change-clouds-height.png?​nolink|}}
 +
 +Finally you can define the height of the cloud above the ground (independent of the current layer altitude) and set the upper limit of the cloud.
 +
 +:i: Note: The upper cloud limit can only be set when Active Sky weather engine is used.
