Predictive Windshear Warning Preview (SP1 Beta)

Recommended Posts

Hi, 

 

the red bars represent the area where the windshear is active, while the "feathers" just point to it, helping to identify it when the range is large enough for the red bars to be drawn.

So you record at work? Or just the preparation?

 

Just the research/prep/PowerPoint.  The latter I didn't have on my home machines until recently, anyway (if you look closely, you can see some of my videos show "PowerPoint Viewer" and not the actual program)...haha.

Hi,

And the size of the red bars? ie...the circumference of the arc? does that have any particular meaning?

Thanks, Kostas!

 

But why do the feathers change their directions dynamically and why have I witnessed even three feathers at the same time? (There must be more to it. :ph34r:)

Hi,

 

The "red bars" are the area where unstable precipitation velocity is detected by the doppler radar. It has a min angle, max angle (relative to the aircraft heading) and a specific radius. It's similar to how the the echo returns from precipitation are drawn. The min/max angle (and the "feathers" that follow them) change as the aircaft approaches the windshear area  and you can see the red bars "engulfing" the aircraft. At least this is how we implemented it in the ASN map.

it is amazing how we were asking for a new improved sim, but these great group of people are able to overcome all of these limitations that we once though were inside FSX and we can not work around them 

 

Because they aren't limitations of FSX...

 

Best regards,

Robin.
