Settings for AS and Sky Force

Recommended Posts

I finally bought Sky Force to use with Active Sky.  I installed everything correctly and turned off the weather engine in Sky Force.  I load AS first, load in my flight plan, and then SF.  I've noticed that the weather in the few flights I did was slightly off so I was wondering if there are recommended settings that I need to make sure are on or off within either application to ensure things are running correctly.  For example, flying out of IAD on Saturday called for rain, overcast skies and 3 mile visibility.  I had no rain, good visibility and broken clouds.  Flying into JFK a day earlier, I had gusty winds coming out of the opposite direction that the METAR was telling me.  I was supposed to have low visibility and rain but I didn't get this.  My guess is that there is something conflicting between the two but I can't figure out what.  Any ideas?  Thanks!

Thanks.  Do you know for the following scenario if you need to do this every flight or if you only need to change / disable it once and than forget it until you want to change it back?

REX Sky Force 3D and Active Sky
1. Start REX Sky Force 3D
2. Go to Global Settings > Engine and disable all options on that page to disable the REX Sky Force 3D weather engine
3. Set all other options to your liking
4. Install all the textures you want

Although sometims (in my case almost all the time) SF's weather engine does not become "disabled" even when you turn it on and off again.

Keep in mind there's also a new patch/hotfix in the works for sky force.

Ok.. That must be my issue.  Thanks!  Any in app settings within AS that you might suggest to make things run/look good?

As long as you have the SF3D WX engine turned off, you don't need to do that much.  Open AS, open SF.....done!

 

It sounds like you had the SF3D WX engine on as it will not at the moment give you the correct weather in the sim.

Can anything be left enables or does it all have to be disabled?

Only the weather engine stuff must be disabled if you're using ASP4 for that.

Yes, if you fly high, I,ve found I can run cloud layers at 10, min cloud draw 140  nm and max cloud draw 170 nm.

Also untick the 7/8 option.

That's in the AS settings, right?
