SIGMET feature

Recommended Posts

Hi,Is there any chance of implementing SIGMETs in AS? In real-life, as you know since you are pilot, we read relevant SIGMETs for each flight. E.g. SIGMET says to expect mod to sev turb below FL70 in are north of N063 and east of E014 and the turb is WKN (weakening), etc.Same goes for TS, icing, and so on.Could it be possible to implement some routine in AS that would read public SIGMETs and "merge" SIGMETs with current available METAR reports. In practice, if ENVA would report mod turb blw FL140 it would make FS2004 increase turbulence and so on.I hope you understand what I mean. I posted similar post maybe a year ago, but I hope that now AS has progressed so far that this could be possible.I am happy new customer of AS :)All the best!Aleksandar

Hi!I've worked on that concept in the past... but limitations in world-wide data have held me back. U.S. has always been easy, and a few other countries, but there was no standardization. But all that has changed in the past 6-12 months.. we now have international sigmet data available via NOAA and some other sources...Recently I began some server enhancements which will collect this new sigmet data and insert it into our weather snapshots. The routines involved in representing the data are a bit of a ways out but they are coming... All this can be expected in a future AS version, details unavailable at the moment but "we are working on it!"... thanks for the feedback.. please keep it coming!
