I've been trying to register in the official forum too but I've just gotta find my order number etc. I am a newcomer to ase and a very happy one, at that. You guys are sure onto something here. I do have a question though.

 

With all of the weather knowledge and information at your fingertips, I wholly recommend a side-project to the next release of ASE. A believable weather radar gauge to be released with it.

 

Simmers have been waiting for something like this. I look at the moving map and I think. Hang on, most of it is already there.

I think what he wants is a weather radar display that looks like and works like the weather radar in real aircraft. I know there are one or two payware addon gauges available, but I have no experience with them.

And a real weather radar is not possible due to limitations in FSX.

I use Reality XP WX Radar. I matches really well the rain depicted with Active Sky. I use it alot while testing.

I also use the Reality XP WX Radar

It does show what is around you in the FSX world and not just fancy pictures moving on a screen.

See on the screen the colour of the cloud mass around you, turn and go to that area showing the heavy rain bearing cloud and presto you will find you have rain falling on your aircraft.

No limitations in FSX as I see it.

It does the same thing that X Gauge does, but uses different graphics to represent the precipitation.

I'm aware of X Guage and it's a great feature and yes, I'm aware of Reality XP Wx Radar. I'll probably end-up buying RXP down the track but not before I buy ASE for FS9 (I purchased the FSX version). God bless its little cotton socks, I'm still using ASv 6.5 in FS9 and it's more than acceptable but ASE is right where it's at, for me. A must have.

 

I have quite a few payware aircraft and cannot remember the last time I used anything else but I'm assuming that the complexity of these offerings precludes X Gauge's installation in some of them. No matter. It's not a deal breaker but my pipe-dream is to fire-up my 747-400 and be able to use an added eicas button to choose the weather radar so I can use the pfd to switch between wx radar and the route. Excuse an old man his musings but that's what I'd like. It doesn't mean I'm going to get it.

 

I just had a good look at X gauge. It works in everything but the PMDG 747 400 and the Maddog MD82.
