78 degrees and Snow

Recommended Posts

I've been flying around Washington D.C. area with FSX. Because of the default season in FSX at this time of the year, there is snow on the ground.  Active Sky Next weather generator, however, provides actual weather conditions in the area with temperatures of upper 60's to 70's the past week (yes! in Feb 2017 in the DC & Virginia areas).  Question: Is there an app that will modify ground textures based on the weather generated by a weather generator like Active Sky Next?

I would love to see this! Given that active snow in FSX will change tiles to their "winter" version, maybe there's some clever way to make the reverse happen?

The easiest way to do what you want is to set your FSX date to sometime in the spring and the snow will be gone.
