Hello

 

I'm installing all FSX and their addons in my new Windows 8 with dedicated SSD for Windows and FSX system.

 

My question is, when install AS2012 with latest SP2, what's the best settings? For IFR with NGX so..

 

Thanks

Hm, I am so thick, can't seem to find the option file where this goes... Directions?

You can find them here.

 

Vista/Windows 7:/8

C:\users\username\appdata\roaming\hifi\AS2012\Options\FSXOptions.cfg

XP:

C:\documents and settings\username\appdata\hifi\AS2012\Options\FSXOptions.cfg

 

Backup your cfg file first.

You might want to change the settings in the UI but you should be able to copy and paste this in.

It's always interesting to explore settings shared by others.

 

Thanks,

Dave:

ForceDestinationWeatherZone = False....wouldn't this cause destination weather to be innaccurate even when flying with a flight plan in ASE? The destination wxr would be blended with surrounding wxr stn data and could update on approach (as ASE would not 'lock' to the flight plan destination) causing additional issues?

 

Thanks.

Hi,

Regarding ASE

 

Force Destination Wx Zone: Selecting this option instructs ASE to force all weather stations to your present destination conditions when you are within 80nm. Using this feature, you can start to see your final weather earlier and provides for less surprise on final approach, where conditions might have normally been much different. You must have a flight plan loaded for this feature to enable.

 

In AS2012 this starts at 128 miles.

Hi Dave - I was wondering why you have your option setting for Destination set to false...what benefit does that have?

At TOD if I know I'll be descending thru a wx front or something and my dest wx is clear or CAVOK I don't want my weather on the way down to be the same.

 

Expect the unexpected. :-)

Dave, I just downloaded the latest update, I am still using your settings from up top this thread.<br /><br />Are there factors regarding the new update that makes some of these settings not recommended anymore?<br /><br />Also, I fly only online, on Vatsim, therefore I enable the Vatsim weather, but... ahchem... I am not sure what it actually does?<br /><br />Could it be that when enabled AS2012 syncs with Vatsim destination so in case Vatsim are slowing behind from rw / noaa, I will have the same wx as the controller?<br /><br />Thanks, you guys are just awesome, love AS2012, just fire-and-forget, and it always amazes me with near perfect depiction!

No not really, I started experimenting with Local Writes with DWC running networked to see if I like it better or not. It seems to smooth out the transitions a little better.

Other then that I haven't changed anything.

Thanks Dave, I had a flight from UK to Iceland this evening and I had a great combo of clouds in combination with a great sunset, I am so happy with AS now, can't see how it can be better. But I am sure you will continue to amaze us :) Have a great weekend mate
