I am interested to what way you like to use to approach the most realistic weather simulation.Do you use the FS dl weater or do you use a weather program?I have just registerd a FSUIPC version and there are many weather option for external weather software so I am curious, what do you like best for real weather simuliton.

I use Active Sky 6.5. I downloaded current or archived weather that I have saved to disk. I do not fly on-line so real-time weather is not a concern for me. I have my Internet connection closed so I do not need tio load my CPU down with communication services and protection applications.I find Active Sky does an excellent job using the facilities of FSUIPC in generating its own dynamic weather to drive FS and provides weather induced turbulence and thermals as well. It comes with a graphics set to generate applicable clouds as well.There forum is here on AVSIM.

i use the payware version of FSUIPC to solve some of FS9's weather transition challenges. most times i use FS's default 'real world weather' updated every 15min.i have used, and like, the freeware FSMetar (http://personal.telefonica.terra.es/web/fsmetar/).i have also used freeware GetWeather (http://www.bearsoft.de/indexUS.html). nice as one can download realworld weather and 'revisit' that enviroment later.--
