Is wxRE just having a bad day?

Recommended Posts

Guest gfk777

Maybe it's just a NOAA problem today but the newest release candidate seems to be the worst yet.I'm really getting to detest that damn "boop" sound with a wxRE dialog box pissing and moaning about something or another. Offline mode in particular seems worse than ever. Is anyone else having better luck?

It's the NOAA servers - both servers for online and offline data have been down for hours. It's nothing to do with RC6, I believe, and nothing Damian can change right now. Things will be better with a private server with V2.0, I hope.Then again, I just swapped in offline files of a couple of days back and am flying with those. Just gotta set the correct time in FS and let wxRe use FS time for processing (RC6 works fine). The weather was better anyways than it is now... :-lolPeter

Servers have been crap all day, switched to FSMeteo and got real-time d/l's with no probs.

He'd better get reliable servers with v1.8 or no one is going to believe/buy into v2!I'm sorry....but it always seems like the "next" version is going to be the one to provide satisfaction.This past week I've had to return to FSMeteo. There's something to be said for consistency.gwillmot

I think it might be useful for ActiveSky to package a few sets of complete wx data for download and use while the server issue is being resolved. It would be nice to include some real aviation charts (i.e. winds aloft, surface depictions, prog charts, and radar summaries) for the same time frame as well.Even after the servers are sorted out, having some typical (or atypical) wx packages on the shelf might be a nice thing still. A canned wx package captured from a real Nor'Easter, a hurricane, or from a major fog event etc would interest me and probably others. The wx "scenarios" could be zipped up and uploaded to avsim and/or flightsim.com for distribution there.CheersBob ScottATP IMEL Gulfstream II-III-IV-V
