    Consider showing your customers moving examples (video) of your animated clouds. Showing still images of an animated package doesn't "promote" the animated feature of the asset very well.

    Is it possible to make the clouds move in a circular direction, as if inside a hurricane?

    I think so, yes. But that requires a new shader and probably a different sky mesh.
    Let me work on it and will update this page if i succeed.

    I had a browser bug yesterday and thought I missed the sale, but it looks like I was able to purchase it. I really liked what I saw in the video, I'll try it out tonight.

    @aubergine Hi, I've run into a problem with the shader, for distant objects the dome will render over them. Is there a way to make the clouds render behind any object in the scene?

    Hello,

    New update does it automatically which I will submit this week, but it will take long time until it is accepted.
    Meanwhile, you can overcome this issue by scaling the skydome mesh(s) to cover whole are on xz axis and scale the uvs on the material(s) accordingly.

    I'll wait.
    Already scaled the the meshes, more than that and it will go over the camera far clipping plane. The clouds object is following the player, that's why is not covering all the terrain.

    Already submitted v2.0 to the store and waiting for review now. It generally takes around 2-4 weeks.

    Here is a video showing how it Works.

    I think your issue is solved with this update. Next update will bring new features, such as clouds casting shadows.

    BTW, you didn't get my point :)

    Oh right, well actually there is some magic involved if you check the shader code :p

    Hi, I just updated the asset and might have tricked myself. Before the asset update I did see clouds. After the update things have stopped working: no more clouds :-( I'm running 5.5 and it seems the updated version only supports 5.6. Anything I can do to make it work in 5.5.?

    Actually, there is 1 or 2 5.6 specific things in the new update.
    So you must revert back to previous version if you still have it somewhere, if not i can pack it up and send to you.

    However, i suggest to use the new version (if you can).

    Ok. Thanks for the reply. I have backups of the previous versions, but I might wait using the clouds until the update of my project to 5.6 is done. The main reason for the update of the clouds was to see if I can get better results for my 4096m x 4096m terrain regarding stretching at the clouds dome edges. Right now I have to use a rather huge dome to spawn the mountains at the terrain borders. This to prevent ugly cloud dome mountain intersections.

    I just tried the 2.0 version on the 5.6 project and I can say that the clouds look really nice. Also the depth sorting issues are fixed. The clouds nicely stay behind the mountains, no more cloud mountain clipping. Thanks.

    Yeah, with the new version, clouds are always rendered between the skybox and any other geometry with a tiny hack.
    Keep in mind that its a unity bug, if they fix it in future releases, the shader is bound to change as well.
