XPrealWX / FSrealWX

Recommended Posts

When talking about weather injectors for X-Plane, people regularly mention EFASS. However, EFASS is somehow bloated if you just need the weather, but not the many (not always finished) other functions, and it has a currently unclear development status (where the devs do not respond since July to any forum threads).

 

So far I did not see anybody really discussing XPrealWX, the X-Plane version of FSrealWX (whose older freeware version FSrealWX lite was discussed here: http://forum.avsim.net/topic/362792-fsrealwx-lite-it-keeps-its-promises/). I found just one opinion about XPrealWX (http://forum.avsim.net/topic/449738-xp-noaa-weather/#entry3063511).

 

Currently, XPrealWX is free, because it has release candidate status (RC2). It shows a "20 days trial" message in the window title bar, but it continues to run after the 20 days. It well get payware sometime, though. After a registration, you can download it from http://www.fsrealwx.net/ You need the main progam and the X-Plane plugin.

 

Personally, I use FSrealWX in combination with SkyMaxx Pro, and I like the results (but I do not care if the weather does not look 100% like the sky outside my house). I don't feel the weather updates are too abrupt (which was criticized in the post mentioned above). XPrealWX' options allow to finetune how often weather is updated, which at least for me gives a smooth update rate.

Hey are you using FSrealwx the lite version or the 2.0 ?  

 

As the lite version does not work with XPRealwx.

 

Yeah EFASS maybe good but its too bloated.

Unless I'm missing something, which wouldnt surprise me, it takes me to a page with no download and information saying Beta testing has ended but no link to a download.

 

"A new version is available for download. 

 

The beta phase has ended."

 

FYI...Had to create an account and be logged in to get to the download. thank you

I like it, pretty nice interface, they've really improved it from the past. Need more time with it though, crashed the first time I ran it.

 

LOL not a good first impression then, I guess ;)

 

Usually it is pretty stable. In rare cases, it crashes indeed, but I expect this to be improved.

Worked fine for me, thanks for the pointer, certainly one to keep an eye on. I like it too.

Does it allow weather fronts (particularly cloud fronts) to be flown away from and into rather than simply making them suddenly disappear or appear around the plane?
