ActiveSky wxRE ROCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Recommended Posts

Get it, don't wait, get it now!!!!! It's great! I was a dissapointed FS Meteo user after installing it on more than one computer, not knowing Marc would cut me off for doing that. Now I have wxRE and it's 10 times better!!!! Clouds are awesome!Get it, don't walk, Run over your neighbor to get it NOW!!!!!! ;-)

Well, as I said in the "Geofa" thread, Wake Turbulance, better clouds, better documentation, easier installation, etc... Cheaper, Better support!!!!,,,,etc....;-) You get my point. The only thing I miss is the weather window that you can put in the cockpit, but have a feeling Damien will incorporate that soon. ;-)

Then I'm confused by what you mean by "better clouds."Thses weather programs in all likelihood get their METARS from the same source, most likely NOAA. So shouldn't the weather in any of them be similar?

In all fairness, I dont think the clouds look any better. Then again, screenshots dont always capture the beuty of the picture either.

I still would like to hear a more indepth review of the two from someone that has used both. Preferably from someone that likes both and will lend a more fair comparison. I, like many, downloaded Damian's first release and quite honestly I was very impressed. I'd like to know more about how the program handles all perimeters of weather. Like upper winds for instance. I know now that when I load up FSMeteo and compare that to what I'm seeing outside, its very similar. Michael

well I like both, can't give you an in depth review as I haven't used wxRE enought, but first impressions tell me I LOVE IT!That's all I can say. As I said before, i'm not trying to pursuade you to get it, if you are happy wiht FS Meteo, stick with it!

Yes indeed, I think an impartial/unbiased review might be in order.I always have a few concerns when someone recommends a product immediately after a statement like..."Get it, don't wait, get it now!!!!! It's great! I was a dissapointed FS Meteo user after installing it on more than one computer, not knowing Marc would cut me off for doing that."I would have a few doubts on the level of impartiality displayed...Cheers,Chris Porter:-outtaPerthWestern Australiahttp://members.iinet.net.au/~portercb/flyp...ta_tester_3.jpg

yes they most likey get them from similar souces but the way that the program tells MSFS to display them is dis similar.As for clouds. You can use the MS default set but to get maximum effect you should set the cloud density silder to %100 or you can use Chris Willis exerlent FS Sky World SE. Im my case i use a mixture of both the defualt set for low level clouds and the high- mid level set from Chris. And i also use his thunder cloud set.

Yes great, and now it starts automatically with fs startup, thanks to Pete Dowson's wonderful utilities (at shiratti's site). I noticed the difference immediately by the accuracy of the visibility in fs and actual vis. It was minimums all the way!
