Active Sky 2012 + FSUIPC

Recommended Posts

Well, reference to the manual may only further the confusion. The part of the AS2012 manual regarding wind shifts and fsuipc and pmdg is the same for AS2012 as it was for ASE and prior versions. So I think what is being asked is running with DWC in Active Sky 2012 specifically, skipping even the workarounds mentioned in its own manual, sufficient to prevent S-turns and other problems in PMDG aircraft.

 

This question has recently been given new life in the discussion about Accufeel turbulence..keep in mind that the current Active Sky 2012 manual still recommends disabling turbulence in FSX itself. Whether this is *actually* necessary or not with the current Active Sky is the burning question....some say it is, some say it isn't, and as for myself, I'm not completely sure since I normally have FSX turbulence enabled, but the FSUIPC boxes for gust/variance/turb checked ON.

 

I don't disable any turbulence within FSX, or reduce the scale in the CFG and don't use any of the suppression/smoothing in FSUIPC and don't get any S-turning with any PMDG product.

 

EDIT: I have the turbulence enabled in AS2012 as well obviously :smile:

Looks like I found the anwers to all the wind shift problems. First of all, it was FSinn that was the main culprit. I thought I had the FSinn weather disabled, but apparently I didn't, so it was interfering with the AS2012 weather.

This is why I didn't have wind shifts while flying off line. So I took care of that, and then I reinstalled the SP2 beta4 for AS2012. There are no more high altitude temperature spikes which caused my PMDG 747 to lose 40+ knots instantly, above FL240.

I'm currently using AS2012 DWC, and have all the weather in FSUIPC disabled, including wind smoothing. The FSX turbulence mode is also disabled.

I've made a couple of 3+ hour flights while logged on to VATSIM, and all has gone well, so far.

Hope it stays that way.

Interesting, I have fsinn weather disabled but last night I did a flight online, finished the flight, turned off fsinn first for some reason, and as soon as fsinn shut down, my weather changed!!

Can you advise how you turned off the weather in fsinn? I thought it was off but now I am wondering if there is another place to look at.
