Hey guys, First off, thank you for the beta build it has solved almost all my problems and is greatly appreciated but I have a couple of lingering issues to address. This is FS9 BTW...1. Local Range Suppression not being enforced2. Force Destination weather not being enforced3. Excessively long start up and write times (10 minutes) Even with High Priority ProcessingI have my entire log from the 7 hour 45 minute flight but I didn't think you want me to copy and paste the whole thing so I will limit it to an excerpt below LOL... My issue is that on a flight from KEWR-LSZH the reported wx at LSZH was no visibility and light snow. I am using Local Range Suppression set to 200 miles. I am also using Force Destination Wx which to my understanding should force the same wx as LSZH for 80 miles around the airport. What I got was partly cloudy on the descent, then popping to clear12 miles from the airport and then 4 miles from the runway all of a sudden visibility went to zero but no snow, ASA continued downloading and writing my entire approach causing stuttering on final and then I got snow once I landed, then it stopped by the time I departed the runway and then started again 60 seconds later... You can see by the log that ASA was just going through its normal 30 minute online update process but I touched down at ~6:05 and shut down FS at ~ 6:14 so the update was never suppressed and the destination wx was never forced... Other than that all the time issues and oceanic issues seem to be resolved :)Any ideas on these last few issues?Thanks in advance!-Paul5:30 PM - Up/downdraft generated: 241fpm, Downdraft = False, Winddir = 333, Windspeed = 45, Strengthfactor = 1.55:30 PM -

Would like to add I am seeing the force destination wx failure repeatedly on every flight. I don't think ASA has gotten the destination wx correct yet and I still get changing wx on approach almost every time.Additionally, the wx depicted in FS is not what I am seeing in the ASA map. For example, I had bad Thunderstorms over part of the Atlantic yesterday but the map showed completely clear... Furthermore, I would expect to see a lot more clouds than clear skies when crossing the pond yet almost every flight is clear skies over the pond. excpet for some t-storms at FL 370.Just an update, would love to hear an update on how things are progressing and when we can expect the next Beta.Thanks in advance,-Paul

Hello HiFi team,I was just wondering if there is any additional information or assistance I can provide?I can replicate on every flight:No map imagery provided over AtlanticForce Destination Wx is not forcing 80 mile radius. (this is the big one that ruins the entire flight)Again, landing at EGLL after 6 1/2 hours tonight, 30 miles from airport, clear skies, 20 miles overcast with snow (as should be) 15 miles, temporary clearing 9 miles depiction mode output active again and as soon as the wheels hit the runway the snow starts again...The ASA map showed overcast with precipitation for alot further than 20 miles from EGLL so it should have been Overcast with precipitation for my entire descent/approach anyway but shouldn't force destination wx mean I get the destination wx for 80 miles around destination?Any updates would be greatly appreciated as right now my only course of action is to return to ASV again permanently until this is resolved.Is it just me?Thanks in advance,-Paul

Hi Paul,We still have the force destination issue marked. I have no word on progress in general.Thanks,
