Depiction Output Active stays on - Build 355

Recommended Posts

I download and installed the Beta Build 355 and noticed that the AI refresh is gone. It does not refresh the AI after the weather has loaded. I noticed the "Depiction Output Active" stays on. Usually when the weather is finished transmitting into FS that will go off. Any ideas? I am a WideFS user.

If I understood correctly, with SP1 AI refresh is now manual.

Yes, it is definitely manual. You have to go to the reports page to do an AI refresh. This bug report regards the "depiction output active" lamp stays on and never goes off. Currently, FS has been running 40 minutes and it hasn't gone off. Doing some AI spotting at FACT to see how things are working before I fly.*** Interestingly, 3 minutes after I posted this I got a new weather injection and the "depiction output active" lamp went off. That was different.Also, how often does ASA grab new weather and inject (minutes) ? Is this configurable?Kind regards,Jerel

Actually, USUALLY its updated near the top of the hour (i.e. :55) but this depends on the airports and if CORR (corrected) information or fast changing/significant weather exists. So actually updates CAN occur more frequently. Our server fetches new data continuously, with an approximate 10 minute cycle time for any given station.Best,

Please explain to me this Refresh AI thingy cause I never knew about it before. Are you saying that the sim won't sim any other aircraft unless I hit that Refresh button before I start my flight? Or do I need to do it after I start my flight and/or periodically during my flight?

Hit Refresh AI once you have the sim loaded and Wx is depicted for proper AI take-off in line with Wx and runway. You don't need it again after that, just the one time.

Hi Joe,In order to have AI and ATC to use the correct runways, FS needs to be refreshed. Do this once after AS and FS are loaded.Thanks,

Thanks guys. I'm assuming the best time to do it is when i'm on the runway just before taking off.

Do it before you ask ATC for Taxi clearance to the runway i.e. before you leave the terminal/stand etc.
