A Safe Weather Theme

Recommended Posts

Is there such a thing as a safe Wx Theme?  The reason we ask is because it seems that no matter which Wx engine you use, there can be crashes with RealTime Wx.  These crashes are most likely due to calculations that result in numeric overflows.  If you guessed that these could be due to out-of-bounds conditions and cause an FSX crash then you could be correct.

 

For that reason and if you cannot get your last situation restarted then set your Weather Theme to the 'Fair Weather' theme in the FSX start GUI.

As you can see the 'Fair Weather' FSX theme gives a nice Wx rendition and at very low performance cost since we were averaging 100fps.

 

If your realtime Wx engine is causing crashes then the 'Fair Wx' theme is the way to go.
