SkyForce 3D and The PMDG B747-400

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hi! I need some knowledge from you. Does my weather rader in my B747 works together with REX SkyForce weather engine? For now I use AS+ASCA. Is it possible to automatically download wx+ data into my PMDG B747-400 FMC? Does PMDG B747-400 weather radar show present weather in the navigation display in the PMDG B747-400 cockpit when I use REX Sky Force 3D? Can I see the weather in my navigation display?

The only developer of weather engines that has coordinated with PMDG is HiFi and their Active Sky products.  There is quite a lot of Active Sky vs REX SkyForce stuff right here in avsim such as:

I've not read anything that indicates the REX weather engine is any better than Active Sky so what is that you are trying to accomplish?

Yes, I run my weather in that configuration. Sky Force do not works together with B744. I have now tested. Still I can download RTE data from Sky Force into my FMC but no visual in the ND.

Oscar,

I expect that we will be putting some developer time toward interfacing with REX over the next few months.

When running SkyForce are you disabling the built-in weather engine and only using the AS one?
