ASX problem with FEX

Recommended Posts

Guest chalbers

I wonder if anyone else has the same problem. I'm using ASX for weather engine and FEX for clouds.Today we had a totally overcast day over Oakland and tested out ASX on it. And yes, KOAK weather gave a scattered on 3500 and total overcast on 6500 and above.So I start up FSX and it reads the ASX settings correctly into the custom weather settings. The problem is, when I look around, it totally doesn't reflect those settings as you can see in the following screengrab.http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/182959.jpgSo I decide to save that flight to keep the weather settings. I then stop running ASX and restart FSX. Then I load the same flight with the same weather settings, and behold !http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/182960.jpgNow it looks correctly.Anyone else having this problem ?Frank

How in the heck are you able to grab the exact same location for the second shot as for the first? And I do mean exact down to the every detail and alignment cept for the sky variation. And the refelction of the sun on the water in the same location except there is no sun in the second shot.

What happens if you start that flight with ASX running, 10 times in a row? Will you see the same wx depiction all 10 times? I bet you won't.RhettAMD 3700+ (@2585 mhz), eVGA 7800GT 256 (Guru3D 93.71), ASUS A8N-E, PC Power 510 SLI, 2gb Corsair XMS 3-3-3-8 (1T), WD 150 gig 10000rpm Raptor, WD 250gig 7200rpm SATA2, Seagate 120gb 5400 rpm external HD, CoolerMaster Praetorian

Hello,Sorry for the delay in replying. Had to leave to Europe for an emergency.So, does anyone know why this happens ? I get really thin sky coverage when using ASX and FEX, although all settings are set to dense. Saving the flight, keeping the weather settings the way ASX sets them, shutting down FSX and ASX, and then finally starting up FSX again with that loaded flight will show a much denser sky !I don't get it !Frank

FWIW, in my playing around with FEX I noticed the same thing. The clouds were beautiful but the coverage didn't match the metar.
