Yep, that's what I said :)

Well I just read over Stuart's code, with a view to doing exactly  
that. It's a part of the code I am completely unfamiliar with,  
however, so I need to do a lot more reading before I can make any  
intelligent comments about it, let alone try and fix it.

I don't suppose anyone has the link to the 'original' cloud code,  
before it was ported to PLIB, or the technical description? Or perhaps  
there's a doc link the cloud code itself, I'll keep digging.

Incidentally, on the shadows, I always assumed that's something we  
would get 'for free' with OSG, presumably there is some technical  
obstacle to just enabling one of the OSG shadowing techniques? I can  
believe that some of them are impractical for FG, but equally we only  
have on light source (that matters for shadowing) most of the time -  
floodlit airfield and carrier operations excepted. Could someone  
enlightened (Tim, I guess) explain the outstanding issues in that area?
