winds aloft real world download?

Recommended Posts

hi,i know this is off topic. but i feel so home in this forum... ;)when i download real world weather i will have surface winds, but no winds aloft. FS gives me a direction but the velocity is always zero. about a month ago i installed my new pc. i am not sure but i think i did have winds aloft at first back then, but like i said i am not sure. i don't clearly remember having winds aloft at all.do you guys get winds aloft with real world d/l weather these days? has anybody ever experienced that phenomena??regards

I bought Activesky version whatever (I can't keep track) a few months ago. This is pretty good for weather by my book and certainly a considerably enhancement on the default MS weather - and has good winds aloft data.You might also have forgotten to tick the 'download winds aloft' box under the 'weather' options in FS.James

> oh James, i totally did not remember there was such an option. i checked it and boom, i got the winds. thank you, that was it!!! :)> Ryan: hey neighbor!is activesky fps friendly? because really, when i am on approach to simflyers KPHX in my PMDG 737/747 i can not lose yet away another frame. although i have a pretty good setup with my amd 64 3500+, 7800GT and 2gb dual channel ram... for real, i am pushing the envelope. well, and 1600x1200 resolution.thank you guys.regards

I love the predictability setting for the winds aloft in ASV. For those that don't know, Winds Aloft data comes from forcasts made 3 times a day (which means it can be up to almost 8 hours old by the time the next one comes out) so I have my predictability set to around 80% to give it an 80% chance of being what the forcast says.----------------------------------------------------------------John MorganReal World: KGEG, UND Aerospace Spokane Satillite, Private ASEL 141.2 hrs, 314 landings, 46 inst. apprs.Virtual: MSFS 2004"There is a feeling about an airport that no other piece of ground can have.

As mentioned before, get Active Sky (and FSBuild also- to accurately plan routes and fuel alottments).hankaaron.
