Hi team,Today I purchased ASA after having used AS for many years.I frist read all the features /issues so I knew a bit what to expect.Then I was wondering if it isn't possible to add a few buttons that will consist of custom set features per button ( done by the user )Eg : the moment I fly the MDF-11 or Level D I might want to have DWC and DVC enabled, while perhaps when flying a Cessna I want them unabled.Each button can have a ( self given ) name, like Jet-flying , small aircraft etc.So per button one could set Cloud , wind and visibility options.Just an idea that came up.Keep up the good work. One question : if I can set the wind turbulence min/max in ASA , why should I modify settings in FSX/FSUIPC ?

Why not just use the save options (create new) function then you can have as many profiles as you want, OK its not available via a key press but clicking on a drop down menu with the mouse and selecting the options profile you want isn't time consuming.optionsscreen.jpg

Thanks Andy,This is what I meant !Btw , the question remains :If I can set the wind turbulence min/max in ASA , why should I modify settings in FSX/FSUIPC ?

Hi,You shouldn't change anything in FSX. The FSUIPC settings are to slow wind shifts not the minimum or maximum winds.Thanks!

Thanks for responding.But the question remains :Isn't it enough to set the maximum for , Wake Wind and Clopud turbulence slider in ASA to a lower value ? I presume I can control all turbulence with that.And than station-based mode could be used instead of global mode.One thing that I remarked : when there is a little fog from the ground up to lets say 5000 ft , and the aircraft is getting higher than 5200 ft , within half a second the fog dissappears and I can look at the ground again.It would have been nice if the fog remained ( like it should ) .Is this a FSX issue ?

Hi,Yes, at a certain altitude FSX removes the visibility layer. Nothing we can do about that!Yes, you can turn the sliders down, but then you won't have any of those effects. If you wanted, you could put them all at zero and that would be like turning them off, if that is what you want to do!Thanks,

hi,well as u mentioned jim, FSX would turn off the visibility layer at a certain altitude, fine with that. but it is possible to generate a fog layer at that particular visibility layer, so that even when u climb up ur visibility layer would disappear but at least the fog layer would remain. sounds unrealistic, but at least the depiction would be believable. and then as u descend through the fog layer, the visibility layer should show up again.could u ask ur team to try and implement this??? i have seen fog layer being depicted properly during certain conditions, but then it also disappears above a certain altitude. regards,

Hi,It would be nice, but the FS engine will just not allow for this. The same way in FS2004 except to generate a cloud layer 10K thick that would reduce framerates to zero.Thanks,

well, the FS engine would not allow for a visibility layer to be seen from the top right? but then the fog layer would just be a texture generation. and i dont think textures would disappear if seen from above, if that be the case then you wouldn't be seeing even clouds from above. so may be an overcast stratus cloud or something could be used to simulate fog and there wouldn't be chances of it disappearing.regards,
