My previous post regarding this issue has disappeared so I'm posting again.

I have the GTX570 video card.

An issue I have identified (not present in FSX....seeing clouds all the way to the horizon in thick fog!! Even when visibility is just 0.1 km with volumetric fog selected or deselected, you can clearly see clouds. I'm not using any addon weather software. Another effect of this is you can clearly see the outline of trees and buildings against the clouds! This is not present in the volumetric fog video posted by LM before V2 release. Will Lockhead Martin acknowledge that this is a problem and will be resolved in the future.

Many thanks,
