Clouds require addition calculations by the sim so they can have a high impact on frame rate, especially if your rendering settings were already high for your system.

Yes, clouds can cause a severe drop in frame rate, especially if you don't have a high-end GPU. And I think scattered is even worse than overcast. Try reducing cloud complexity. They'll look uglier, but the frame rate improves.

There's no slider for changing clouds complexity like in xplane 10.
