Setup problem I think?

Recommended Posts

Guest

I'm using 1.8 in offline mode. I set the destination in the box and select get and force and it gives me my destination weather. Force distance is 60nm. I then fly and weather appears to change OK enroute except that the winds remain set to the aloft figure e.g. yesterday at 10 nm from egjb and at 3000ft. The surface wind isn't kicking in but remaing at the aloft figure. I was getting a reported 247/17 from the wxre dialogue box but the actual weather showing on the instruments was 277/54. This also was reported by ATIS. The only way to get the surface wind sensible is to minimise FS and reforce the destination. This is a real pain in the a.. to do this on approach because the surface wind hasn't kicked in.Can anyone offer me any guidance please?Paul Gardner

Hi Paul,Please try turning off wind smoothing in FSUIPC to see if it has to do with the delay of transition. If so, you can either extend your force range (to say 100nm) or increase the rate of transitions in FSUIPC.Let me know if that helps.. thanks!-Damian[table border=0" cellspacing="30" cellpadding="0][tr][td align = "left"]Damian ClarkHiFi Simulation SoftwareDeveloper of ActiveSkyThe next-generation weather environment simulation for FS2002!http://hifi.avsim.net/activesky[/td][td]http://hifi.avsim.net/activesky/images/wxrebeta.jpg][/td][/tr][/table://http://hifi.avsim.net/activesky/ima...[/tr][/table

Your suggestion made me play around with FSUIPC (v2.975) and it appears, although I need more testing, that having taxi winds set to automatic or on stops the surface wind from kicking in.Also I now use live weather and it works a treat.:-)
