I thought that was actually one of the biggest development areas for this: packing all the textures into one atlas so they could be batched.

I am currently reading up on billboard clouds, and was wondering whether this technique is in use in any currently released games? Especially the variation able to linearly interpolate between actual mesh and billboard cloud representation.
