AS 6.5 Historical Weather

Recommended Posts

I'm trying load the weather for 8/29/05 (Hurricane Katrina) into FS9 via AS 6.5. After ensuring that the online updates are disabled, AS downloads this weather and the station report display shows the winds at KMSY (New Orleans)as being out of 0600 at 8 knots. Is AS not actually getting the historical weather for that date?

Hi,ASv6.5 does not support special hurricane simulation and only depicts what stations are reporting. Unfortunately, during hurricanes the stations close down well in advance of landfall and old data is received until the storm passes and the station reports again.ASX on the other hand specifically simulates hurricanes, changes metar reports to depict hurricanes properly, and adds new virtual stations for better coverage and depicted "shape".And to answer an obvious follow-up question to that ahead of time, Yes, we are looking at bringing hurricane simulation to FS9. :)Best,
