Hello all,

 

I am kind of new to X-Plane (recently converted from FSX), so please forgive me if the question is silly. Well, I love the option to Randomly-Generated Weather in X-Plane 10.25, but I have two problems using it:

 

- the visibility generated is always maximal, even if it is cloudy and rainy

- the clouds are always very very very high (it never generates clouds below ~18.000 ft or so)

 

Am I using it incorrectly? Is there a way to avoid these two issues?

 

Any answers or comments would be very appreciated!

 

Thanks a lot,

Gilberto

Hi Gilberto,

 

I'm not certain why you don't get clouds below 18k feet. Did you try getting real weather where you know what the cloud base is so you can compare?

There are a couple of alternatives, to default weather generation which s METAR-based.

 

The latest I've heard about comes with the EFASS flight planner. Apparently it now includes a RW weather generator for XP10.

Gilberto, I've tried using the randomly generated weather also, but if never seems to work too well. The exact same problem is that it never seems to adds clouds below 18,000ft, and I always end up going into the weather settings and changing it myself. i.e. I generate random weather, and then alter the cloud layers or visibility.
