Turbulence

Recommended Posts

Guest bobsk8

I have been using Active Sky for a couple of months now, and wouldn't fly without it. I have a question about the turbulence,. It seems that when I first got the program, I would see a great deal of turbulence affecting my PMDG 737 as I flew around. Lately, even in some very bad weather, I don't seem to get any turbelence to speak of. I do not have it disabled in FS9. What are some things that I could look at to make sure everything is set correctly for turbulence effects?

Hi all,We need an entirely new turbulence simulation engine, and it is in the works for the next version...Also goes along with new Vertical air simulation including up/downdrafts (terrain-based), thermals and ridge lift.

Yes, in fact I noticed that too.Right until last night when I took my PMDG for a flight from Berlin to cracow and passed near some nasty looking (great rendition BTW) CB monsters and I was in for a rough ride.So, it is there, just limited to severe turbulence associated with thunderstorms.BestDom

Is there an upgrade available at some charge, or does one have to pay the full price for the next version?

Hi,It all depends, we don't normally decide these things until we are closer to completion. A ways off still. There has yet to be any official announcement of the next version, but these details will be available soon... We are still concentrating on finishing AS2004.5 and making an official update release. Now that FSUIPC 3.40 is available, this should happen in days.I can say that YES there is an upgrade offer planned for AS2004/AS2004.5 users with substantial savings over the "full version for new users" product.

Seems you are correct.

I'm too been experianceing almost no turbulence in or around storms. I ended up checkind the ramdom turb setting in FSUIPC to get some sort of activity. But useing the 142 build, what do we need to turn on or off to get back turb.Bill MKeep up the great work
