It's not possible to get clouds lined up.
But what you can do is make very wide thermals, or a lot of thermals, by altering the flightplan in Notepad (kladblok).
This is a flight I did once with BRA and SOI, in std class 18m. If you don't fly too fast you don't need to circle.
But you can experiment with the weather yourself, open a flightplan in Notepad, and change the parameters.
If you make the thermals too strong, your wings will brake when entering. ;)

Try a flight in a mountain landscape..New Zealand as an example.(airport: Omarama or Glentanner) If you set moderate conditions with high thermal activity and cloud base around 2000m and maybe some weak wind(5km/h) from NW you will get some nice rows of cumuluses along the ridges. Even with no wind. Often they form so thight that they works like cloudstreets! You can try the attached free flight. The conditions are good for more than 1000km. :wink:
Happy flight!
