Can anyone reccomend a good weather generator?

Recommended Posts

Hi i'm currnently using REX. However i was just casually flying along in my level d 767 at FL390 at steady mach 0.783 when BANG! Over speed warning comes on and i'm doing mach 0.879 in the blink of an eye. This always bloody happens with rex and i'm getting fed up of it because i loose lot's of points on fspax for overspeeding the a/c. Can anyone reccomend a good weather generator which smoothens weather change?

 

Cheers

Tom

Are you using FSUIPC registered version and it's smoothing option?

 

I like FSrealWX for weather generation and that can help also.

I have Active Sky 2012..and that does an EXCELLENT job of handling the weather for me. I have never experienced an overspeed issue since i started using AS 2012. It just does the job very well. Plus it also has many other options and some excellent graphics for your sim enviroment (multiple cloud textures, water textures, airport markings, concrete)

AS2012 is only for FSX , but Active Sky Evolution is still functional with FS9.

 

But N918JC is right, the first thing to try is using registered version of FSUIPC and set the smoothing wind option.

 

Happy Flyings

I had the same issues with REX, I still use it for low slow GA flying because I do like it. But Active Sky is perfect for my high level flights. If I didn't have Active Sky, I would probably just use the default engine for high flying.

I use ASE which I'm 99% happy with. I get the occasional cloud 'popping' but, on the whole, I find this program to be my overall favourite. I have REX too, but for the textures only.
