How does Matthew look like in XP10.51 ?

Recommended Posts

With default weather or any other add-ons ?  I'm curious....

 

Not near to my XP machine external disk right now.... otherwise I would test it myself, of course :-)


Don't know, but to me MFS looks a lot like the "Barbie" of desktop flight simulation...

Doesn't matter - I like to play with Barbies...

If you tell the un-knowing among us (e.g. me) what "Mathew" is, we may be able to answer :D

Just tried at MYIG with NOAA, SMP, RWC, Ventura, FSrealWX and compared to Prepar3D with AS16. Can't of course say how it would feel in real life (and better not try) but the Prepar3D/AS16 solution looked and felt better. Aircraft behavior on the ground was too smooth IMO in XP and GS readings when in the air seemed to be off as well. And, no rain in XP.

Did you use FSrealWX together WITH NOAA and VS? (Should not be possible.)

No, alternating, with FSrealWX/RWC the winds seemed to be closer to the real thing. The METAR that NOAA read showed less wind than any current weather report, so the plugin did what it is supposed to do but the weather was more like an average overcast day as opposed to a place where a hurricane had just passed through.

Hans,

 

compare to SkyVector data. Just tried MYIG - I am using just default weather and NOAA. The present METAR doesn't show any severe winds, quite on the contrary:

 

MYGF 051600Z 07008KT BKN015CB BKN070 30/26 A2985 RMK CB NE/OVHD/S VCSH NE/E

 

OTOH while I gained altitude, winds did significantly and consistently increase.

 

You should try now at KSGJ instead : KSGJ 051731Z 02018G21KT 3SM RA BR BKN006 BKN019 OVC047 25/24 A2995 RMK AO2 LTG DSNT ALQDS TSE08B13E28 P0006

 

With it does show precipitation in XP.

Thanks jcomm, indeed a different weather there. Seems that something is wrong with my Ventura installation, need to check that.

Jose,

 

It would be interesting to see how it looks in HIFI/P3D weather system....pics please!.

Looks diferent, but I do not have P3D,just FSX:SE.

 

Presently can't take shots of the combination, but I've seen a few at the HiFiTechInc forums...

 

I still prefer the way NOAA plugin deals with variable windsand turbulence  in XP, and the effects it has on aircraft, to those of either FSX / P3D.

Well here it is a real webcam from Jacksonville, FL, and X-Plane default weather in KJAX (I have no scenery installed). The general light and colors seem remarkably close.
