They had an Xplane version for their road-map quite a while.

Nice to finally see that their is an actualy progress!

 

I hope that they'll also get in-contact with SkyMaxxPro developers , so both will be perfectly comptabile with each other , this combination may finally be what we have always wanted in Xplane.

This is great to see, especially if it is compatible with SkyMaxxPro. Maybe this will also force HiFi to give us an update on ASN for X-Plane.

Potentially exciting news. But worried about the cloud part on that window. I see only 3 layers. Was hoping they can get around that limitation.

Stephen Pennell Have you managed to get round XP's default 3 layers of clouds limitation? Will we finally see taller cloud formations? Will it be able to communicate with other apps like Skymaxx Pro?

FS Global Real Weather This is a beginning. For X-Plane having custom weather as well as for FSGRW supporting X-Plane. We are in contact with Austin and are working on improvements. They may come slowly, but they will come.

It looks great, but no Mac OS version by the looks of it  :( . A large portion of X-Plane's users are using Macs for various reasons, so I hope they are developing both in parallel.

Ooooohhh yes! I really love this weather enigne! if it's remotely as good as the MSFS version, it will add quite something to the XPX experience!

Great stuff.

 

Now I just have to figure out how to have that much cloud cover and not have my framerates drop by half....

Interesting but when I read "slowly" by a dev I fear this means "years" in the Xplane world

X-Plane years are not Earth-based, but are more akin to those of Pluto's solar rotation (248 Earth years).

For example, it is believed that the ancient Greeks first started development of the IXEG 733.

Been using http://www.fsrealwx.net/ for awhile now and enjoy it

Same choice at my end. So far, I like it a lot but would welcome FSGRW of course, not only because I own the FS9/FSX/FSXSE/P3D version.

I'm guessing it will probably work with something like Skymaxx Pro which is lighter on the framerates
