It would be normal if you didn't have a vertical path resolved, and I wouldn't expect to see it while on the ground. 

Full names in the PMDG forums please.

Hi,

If you haven't already, I would advise that you fly the tutorial provided with the QOTS II.

Hi! Thank´s! I perform a flight yesterday following tutorial #1 but can not find anything about weather prediction programming to the FMC. I want to learn how to programming weather prediction into the FMC, download weather to FMC e.t.c.

This isn't a thing - either in the real plane, or what we've simulated (because of the real plane).

You can download wind data (explained in the Intro Manual - please read it), but that's about it.

Thank´s! I going to sit down and read the Intro manual carefully. I believe I wasted about 350 people yesterday because I crash my 747-400 due to thunderstorm and not programmed my FMC for bad weather.

Kyle is trying to tell you that you don't "program your FMC for bad weather." You have a weather radar, and that's what you use in flight to detect precipitation. Basically, when you start seeing shades of yellow and red on your weather radar, you should really deviate around it. The problem in this instance is that the weather radar will only work if you have Active Sky.

By the way, when you say you wasted 350 people, I feel like I'm playing Grand Theft Auto. I think killed 350 people might be a better term. Or annihilated. Or fatally injured. Or obliterated.

Which is the best choice? Active Sky Next (ASN) or Active Sky 2016 weather engine by HiFi Simulations?

AS2016 is the successor to ASN. You shouldn't be asking these questions here, they don't relate to PMDG. Have a look in the P3D or FSX general forums.

I don't see the problem with it. There's no denying there's a lot of ASN/AS2016 that interacts with our stuff.

yes   you  can use the  combination between Active  sky  and  rex   texture, but not  with   rex  weather architect   since  this  is  a  addon  where  you  can make  your  own  type  of  weather  in the  sim its  not  live  weather  as  compared  to using  active  sky

Hi, Thank`s! Do I have to uninstall REX Weather Architect to avoid issue? I guess I have no use for this REX add on. Right?

no  you  dont  have  to at all,   you  cant  use  active  sky  or  weather  architect  at  the  same  time  its  one  or  the other.

Hi, Kyle! Is there any beginner education for the B747 that takes place in Europe or Asia?
