Winds aloft update and outside air temperature

Recommended Posts

Guest sitzkrieg

I noticed this previously with 1.91 but also with the latest 1.92 update.When the winds aloft are updated (usually at about 4000 feet), the outside air temperature indicator in the cockpit jumps up anywhere from 10 to 30 degrees F.I'm using FS2004 and I believe I have ActiveSky setup correctly (FS2004 writes, stuff not needed for FS2004 disabled, etc.). I'm using Offline mode (lowly 56ker here) but it also happens in Online mode.Anyone else notice this?

Hi,I think this is the normal FS temp issue (bug?)... When you have ANY airspeed, your temp will increase dramatically. You can notice up to 100% increase in temp at Mach .9, for example. This is on the GAUGES only. The effect of airspeed friction on SAT is a realistic thing, but they are overdoing it in FS (for as long as I can remember).The actual temp can always be verified in the FS weather dialogues, or by hitting "Y" (slew) and noting the temp with 0 airspeed. Can you confirm?Damian ClarkHiFi Simulation SoftwareDeveloper of ActiveSkyhttp://www.hifisim.comhttp://www.hifisim.com/images/as2betateam.jpg

Figured it was something I just didn't know about. Makes sense.Seemed odd to see such a jump in temperature. I takeoff and it's 30F, hit 4000 MSL and it's 44F.Can't confirm right now but I will check it out later tonight.
