hello,

 I have a question with the weather addons. Can i create my own weather with those addons? (for example very foggy and rainy) or do i have to select a theme in the fsx weather section in fsx?

Hi,

Typically - I would think most people just allow it to use the "Real Weather" for a given location... I believe there is a search tool to find specific weather that may be happening around the world - as well as a "Historic Weather"... Honestly - I don't know if you can set specific weather and I've used Active Sky products for many years... For me that would kind of defeat the purpose...

Regards,
Scott

so as16 and asca arent actually a weather generator (only for live weather and better textures)

Hello,

You can use AS for Live Real World, Historical Real World, or Fully custom weather modes depending on your needs. Additoanlly with ASCA based on the conditions in AS16 the most appropriate texture set will be generated in ASCA and injected into the simulator. 

Please let me know if you have any additional questions. 

Thanks!

hi, thats my question, how do I 'create' my own weather. for example very rainy and a lot of clouds or even very sunny and no clouds. (like with the default fox weather engine you can chose between different weather themes) is this even possible with asca and at do I have to do to generate myas16? so how do I generate my own costum weather. thats my question

 

thanks a lot!

Make sure you have "show hidden files and folders" checked in your folders options.

On the top menu select WX Control

3 Large Blue Buttons are Available on the left - select the bottom one  Switch to Custom

Then go back to the top menu select Map

Once you are in the map - you can go anywhere in the world and RIGHT CLICK your mouse the option to create your custom weather is there.

Have fun!

Just wondering, if I have REX Texture Direct 4 with Soft Clouds and pick up AS16, can I use thoe two together just as I would with ASCA, and hence can I avoid getting ASCA and just buy AS16 with the upgrage discount? I apologize in advance for my ignorance, but after several searches I think I'm thoroughly confused!

Cheers, Pete

AS16 is the weather engine and REX is the texture package, and soft clouds is a cloud texture enhancement for REX. I am certainly no expert as some of the other folks on the forum are, but since AS Next isnt compatible with P3D v3, then I need a new weather engine. The REX package is compatible with all platforms, but I suppose if I didnt have REX Texture Direct already, I would probably just get the ASCA (the cloud art package) as a compliment to AS16. So..I think ASCA and REX Texture Direct both essentially do similar things (textures), where AS16 is the weather engine. It is quite confusing sometimes, but I think I have a handle on it now. 

 

Cheers, Pete

So if i get this correct, as16 is a only real life weather engine. Is there a weather add on we're I can chose my weather themes? Like the default weather engine in FSX? (But then better textures) or do I need to install a texture theme from asca and then chose a weather theme in FSX weather engine? (Wil the textures of as a replace the default weather textures then?)

 

or is asca only compatible with as16?

I think REX weather architect may do that if I'm not mistaken.

ASNext is perfectly compatible with P3Dv3. A lot of folks including myself use it all the time in V3

Could I clarify is Texture Direct +SC a replacement for Rex E+OD (which I currently use with ASN)?

Same thing really, To be honest Texture direct has far less texture sets to choose from than Rex E+OD, soft clouds is ok but I prefer the default clouds if i want that particular look

Oh! I had the impression that there were more textures and better.

Thanks, Bill

ASCA is compatible with all WX engines (REX, AS, default, etc) but the Dynamic Themes only work with AS16 due to the integration needed.

AS can generate custom weather using METAR or by selecting conditions from a menu in the client.

Just bought AS16 and ASCA since they are on spring sale so it's both products for the price of one and I must say that I'm blown away with the both together ( ASCA in full dynamic mode ), the cloud textures change along with the type off weather you encounter enroute, something you can't get with other weather textures add ons like FEX or REX textures, I did some long flights and never did see the weather jump from one type to another, transitions in the weather are so smooth that you don't even notice them and yes, you can create your own weather with creating your own METARS for the parts off the world you like and you can edit the clouds to, just like you would in FSX.

Only down point for me is that ASCA doesn't come with water textures and animations like FEX does, but hey what isn't yet might still come.

I don't regret my purchase for a moment yet,

Herman

Just figured out that the WX radar from AS16 can easily be implemented in all the default airplanes to, it gets better by the minute.
