Jim/Damian: Saved weather with Flight?

Recommended Posts

If I were to load up AS2k4, start FS9, normal procedure to get weather loaded. While on the ground, save the flight. Open the saved .flt file in notepad and change the WeatherType= from =2 to =0. Then zip that file up along with the .wx file of the same name and share it with a friend. First, how far from the start location would AS2k4 weather exist if a non-AS2k4 user were to load the flight? To ask another way, is there a radius around the aircraft where local stations are loaded initially (my recollection is that this changed around MR1)? Would you guys have any issues with distributing flights of this sort (freeware of course) if they were billed as "as2k4 previews" or at least AS2k4 was credited with generating the weather? In my limited testing with flights of less than or about 140nm, seems to work like a charm. Plenty of cloud layers, winds, etc. Very nice.Also, feel free to email me directly if you want more info regarding what I've got in the works here. (email is in my sig if you don't have it)Best,sg
