PMDG 747-400X

Recommended Posts

Hi PMDG,I just wanted to know, that in the 747-400X, why isn't the weather radar working when you select it. The other problem that I saw was that the verticle stabilizer is not working properly; i.e. when trimming the aircraft it does not show any movement on the elevator or the stabilizer.It's agreat aircraft to fly, as I fly them. Can't wait to fly the PMDG's MD-11.CheersShadaab

Lemme beat the rest to the punch and say that FSX doesn't model weather radar.

FSX (or FS9 for that matter) does not simulate precipitation. Precipitation is what is lit by a weather radar. What others are doing is pretending clouds equals precipitation and model a weather radar based on clouds which are simulated (poorly) in FSx or FS9.Thus PMDG does not model weather radar as the input is not there. Or at least that is how I understand it from the multitude of threads where this has been up to discussion.Cheers,
