download real weather - Problem...

Recommended Posts

Dear Simmers,It was raining hard over Switzerland yesterday and I decided to fly from Geneva (LSGG) to Malpensa (LIMC) in Italy. I downloaded the real weather (through the weather option in FS 2002) and what a surprise, it was sunny over LSGG (no clouds at all....).Did anyone experienced this before ?Thanks for your inputSro

For me the weather is accurate most of the time; however around the areas of France and Switzerland, it's always clear weather and altimeter 2992 for some reason. Probably some bug.Kitty MercuryCathay Pacific Virtual Pilot (CX252)

I Always get weather at LSGG (?).... However, fly 10nm North and it goes... There are pockets of no weather around the Geneva area but most of it is covered. My biggest problem is heading towards paris the whole are has no weather at all..... however, If you do a "goto" LFPG there is weather for about 5 seconds then it disapears again...I've no idea why this happens.. its the same with fsuipc and without... I would love to be able to fix this.:-)Pete

Thanks for your inputs.Just a question Mark. What is concretely FS Meteo ? In other words, does FS Meteo allow you to download real METAR files, and maybe the most important thing, are you able to fly with real meteo conditions around LSGG area ?I am a newbie with FS 2002 (Former Fly 2! simmer)Regards from SwitzerlandSro

FSMETEO is a payware but, still worth the price. I have it and was a bit hesitant to purchase it at first. Said what the heck, and got it. Well worth the price. If for no other reason to get the destination airport winds for which runway to line up for. The only hitch is..I have not heard any thunder claps while flying through a thunderstorm. But still, worth the price and experience to get.

That's interesting that you don't get thunder claps. I see lighting and thunder all the time with FSMeteo. I do a lot of flying in my home location (Central Florida) and we get thunderstorms every day during the summer.Has this only occurred with the most recent version (5.2)? I haven't spent enough time with that version to see any thunderstorms, but I know the previous versions had no problems.
