increase the number of samples in your atmosphere settings (under quality), you may even need to go as high as 512.

This has been asked so many times we may as well put a stickied FAQ thread.

Hi Mike

There are a few threads about this on the forum. You can try ramping up the samples on the Atmosphere Quality, but beware your render times will increase. 128 samples or more may be needed. Do a search for clouds to find out more, this is a common issue for a lot of people. Check the tutorials section.

I have done this test render with your tgd and ramped the Atmosphere sample up to 64 to show you the improvement at that setting.

regards, Simon.
I just need to tweak that texture a bit more...
