FSX Turbulence and Thermal Effects

Recommended Posts

On page 11 of the AS2012 manual is states: Disable turbulence and thermal effects on aircraft: Check this option to disable all turbulence and thermal effects from FSX itself (may help with high-fidelity add-on aircraft autopilot s-turn issues). Is this implying that AS2012 now handles all turbulance and thermal effects so it no longer needs to be enabled in FSX or have I misread it and unticking the checkbox will disable these effects completely?

No. You'll lose some turbulence effects on the aircraft except those caused by wind shear.

 

Disabling turbulence is only needed for products like the NGX and a few others with "advanced autopilot". I like to leave mine enabled for nice looking turbulence with EZDOK. Another option is to leave Turbulence enabled and adjust the "TurbulenceScale" line to ".5" or so. At least that's what I do.

Thanks Zach. I raised the issue as on approach to some airports, the NGX often dives while on the ILS. According a post on the Flightbeam forum regarding KPHX, this behaviour is the result of FSX thermals placed before some of the runwways in FSX, 25L at KPHX being one. The solution was to disable turbulence and thermal effects within FSX and allow the AS2012 or REX to provide the turbulence effects.
