I'm going to do some work on my newer setup (after this render I have going is over) and try to accomplish some things with the logical disrtibutions and climate zones. After that, I'll send you the tgc if you would like to use it. And yes, I would be quite interested in the files. Thanks.

This cloud layer had a good outline but not much detail within it. The most significant difference in this image has been dropping the edge sharpness down as well as the density a little. I think that with a bit more tweaking of these two settings you may find that your cloud fractals are a lot better than you think and I suspect that some of your new cloud layers may become redundant .... or you may find even better uses for them.Did you get the animated version of TG2? It's very handy for running a series of renders with incremental settings to fine tune things.

In my current setup, clouds will usually (not always) look decent from as low as 200 and sometimes even 100 km high (which seems to be the strong point right now).
