Only 1kt gust factor with SP1 AS16

Recommended Posts

Hello there,


I realized there would not be any wind gusts when flying my FSX Steam Edition and using AS16. I installed SP1 and my version now shows 6239.

Unfortunately, although the conditions tab would show significant (>15) wind gusts for my current location in FSX, the sim itself would only show a wind speed varying by 1kt.

I checked the debug window and it would show the correct wind direction but the speed also varied by 1kt only. I used live weather for Feb13th, 2017 in the New York area, with my FSL A320 positioned in EWR.


Does anyone have an idea, how to receive correct gusts?


Thanks for your help,

Gust effects are tied into wind shear, and thus if your maximum wind shear setting is less than 50% you will see some gust attenuation.  Suggest maximum wind shear set to 50 or 75 for realism and full gust effects.  We've recently updated documentation/UI option notes to help make this more clear.
