Gents,First thing. I understand Historical mode when in the offline mode. My questions relate to on-line only.I am curious about the difference between running with On-line Dynamic Data in Historical mode or just checking the box for "Force to Sim Time"? Neither "Force to Real Time" or "Force to Sim Time" is checked when in historical mode is why I am asking.On the flip side of this.I am still curious how ASA handles flights set to the future. Does it use current weather METAR or the TAF? Does "Force to Sim Time" or "Force to Real time" affect whether the METAR or TAF is used?Thanks in advance for your support.

Hi,#1. In Online Historical that weather will be used no matter the time or date in FS.#2. Whichever is newest will be used if Sim Time is used. If Real Time is used then it doesn't matter what the time is in FS and the METAR will be used. If it is snowing in ASA and you set FS to next summer, it will be snowing then in FS.Thanks,

Thanks, I think I understand for future flights. If I want the METAR, then set to real time. If I want the TAF, then set to sim time.Brad
