Hi,Just a little question: seeing the fire disaster happened in Greece just few days ago, I've though if there is the possibility with METAR to specify the kind of "cloudiness" (in this case due by smoke) and to transpose it in the game. As I flew from Athens to see if there was smoke in the air, I saw only clouds (and I guess it wasn't exactly what I saw in TV); I hope you'll understand what I mean!Thanks to all! :-)Vittorio

Thanks Jim!I forgot to tell you that I fly with FS9 but I guess the answer would be the same... So do you mean that only way that FS9/FSX has to show smoke is lowering the visibility...Thanks a lot! :)Vittorio

What would be a neat addition to the program is a downloading of the fire tfr's and then a simulation of fires within them. I just flew from Washington State to Michigan, and the Idaho panhandle and Western Montana was filled with them (fires and tfr's).Could be a cool future edition (even displaying them on the xgauge) ? A shot of the tfr on a garmin 496 and what it looked like off the wing...http://mywebpages.comcast.net/geofa/pages/rxp-pilot.jpgForum Moderatorhttp://geofageofa.spaces.live.com/http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/177389.jpghttp://forums.avsim.net/user_files/177390.jpg
