Cannot Save User Defined Weather With a Flight - Why?

Recommended Posts

Each time I set FS 2004 User Defined weather for a specific group of stations in a selection box I create and save it as a flight, it appears as set (few clouds, heavy rain, 2 miles vis, winds 270/light). However, when I leave FS9 then start FS9 later and select that flight, it replaces the weather with clear, winds 014/0.I have tried setting the user defined wx before selecting the stations and setting it after selecting stations. Nothing seems to save the User definte wx from one FS9 experience to the next.What could cause this? How do I make FS9 save user defined weather?----------------------------HP Laptop, XP Home SP2, AMD Turion 64 ML-37 1.99GHz, 1.37GB RAM, ATI Radean Xpress 200M

Hi abiz,I have noticed this quirk since I started making my own weather themes (over three years ago). Often the winds and temps will save but not clouds or visibility or precip. So I've started making two saves. One called something like WX_Q407_TX-FL I make as soon as I finish defining the weather. Then I fly and, when finished, I save the flight with a name such as CurKingair. Then before I start the sim for my next session, I delete CurKingair.wx, make a copy of WX_Q407_TX-FL.wx, and rename the copy to CurKingair.wx.For some reason, this works every time. Just remember to do one save before you fly and keep that in a safe place. I hope that this is helpful to you.R-

Thanks, Ron. I'll use your solution.Oddly enough, if you save a flight with user defined wx during the flight while airborne, the wx is retained and recalls properly. Just seems to be a quirk when saving from the ground. S_______________________________________HP Laptop, XP Home SP2, AMD Turion 64 ML-37 1.99GHz, 1.37GB RAM, ATI Radean Xpress 200M
