PMDG 737 NGX RADAR METEOROLOGICO + SP1

Recommended Posts

Hello, good evening everyone, I want to next update sp1''to''put upPMDG weather radar, I am not aware that simulates 100% due to the fs, but it helps about 30% if possible to place a weather radar,not only me but as 90% of Brazilians would love, in order, sorry forbroken English because my native language is Portuguese, goodflight!CAVOK!Petition PMDG + weather radar!

How about nope and has been discussed plenty of times... Maybe one day MS will help us have a better weather engine. Then and only then will PMDG work their magic. Have a great night and RSR is lurking about ;)


Take Care,

Hi there !! The NGX will not have weather radar because of the limitations with FSX.I'm sure PMDG could have given us something that resembled a weather radar but they had the good sense not too.It would not have been realistic and would have taken from the overall realism of this truely great plane.
Thats about as believable as not modeling a 2D throttle quadrent because it's too animated. Some of us don't drink the coolaid.

"limitations with FSX" is developer speak for "we dont have enough time/money/know-how within performance limits to do it".and not to be specific to this subject but imo its getting thrown around too much.

Something worth remembering !! "" You can't make a silk purse out of a pigs ear "" That explains why PMDG did not give us a toy weather radar !!!

This is a simplistic answer, but here goes. Real weather radar sees precipitation, not clouds. The pilot correlates the intensity of precip (red=heavy) and contours (the distance from no rain to heavy rain) to anticipate hazardous conditions. You do this from a distance so you can make tactical and strategic deviation decisions. Radar doesn't see clouds. if it did, and you were in the clouds, you couldn't see out and the radar would be useless, right? The value is in seeing and interpreting the intensity and contours far enought away so you can choose an appropriate route. MSFS (any version) doesn't do rain like the real world. When you're "in" precip, FS just puts a column of rain or snow around your airplane. It doesn't exist away from the aircraft. Bottom line: You can't accurately simulate radar in MSFS because there's no precip anywhere but right at your aircraft when it's supposed to be about. All the products that "simulate" weather radar are simply useless eye candy. It has nothing to do with what PMDG can or cannot do. Or does or doesn't want to do. Hope this helps.

They should release a tutorial on using the search function for this forum with SP1. Then again the same people won't read that either.

Well, I think that should work in PMDG weather radar, at least to seewhere there's rain, several companies such as Wilco, PSS and others already use, in order, at the discretion of the PMDG, I hopeone day we can have a weather radar that is pretty cool. Embracegood flight!CAVOK!

The only place rain ever exists in fsx is a tiny corcle around our plane. The other radars out there do not display precipitation because fsx doesn't even have that information. Drawing a square on a piece of paper and filling it in with random red blobs is exactly as accurate as any weather radar in fsx.

Well, you have to have steady hands or a ruler to make the sides of the screen straight. It also helps to use the big 180ct set of crayons for shading in shadows from the simulated sun & glareshield. Aside from that yeah, every bit as accurate.Ps: sorry if my other post seemed a bit rude to anyone. I was in a hurry when I typed it in & didn't pay much attention to how I worded it.
