Does this happen to you?

Recommended Posts

Has this happened to you ? This morning I am very excited to check out the new Portland airport scenery so I load up a PMDG 737, Active Sky and a FP from KSFO to KPDX only to get there and find the visibility has dropped to 0.3 of a mile. I have to do an Autoland and I can't see nuttin'!!!! Jokes on me!

Oh ya. Very frustrating. But all part of the deal, isn't it?

Regularly!
Recently after installing the new EPKK scenery, I have hit a real weather season of fog, low visibility and precipitation.
So in my flights I haven't seen a piece of my new airport or the nearby city scenery. Until I finally decided not to launch ActiveSky, select default fair weather, Cessna and went for a sightseeing ride. 😀

what annoys me (& many others) is the lack of daytime low visibility airfield & approach lighting at most of FB's airports .... given other developers do & recently some are using SODE to include such with conditional visibility options.

 


for now, cheers

That happens with AS! More often than i would like during winter months here in NC. Half the time i have to turn around and high-tail it back to better weather! I should have read the AS weather briefing more closely for the destination airport!

Funny enough, I did a flight from KLAX to KPDX this morning and had 1/4 mile visibility and low ceiling so didn't get a chance to check out the nice approach scenery😄  That being said, the airport lights were visible from a couple miles out even though visibility was very low.  I'm not sure if that is a scenery issue or something else???  I don't recall ever seeing that in P3D...

Interesting, given FB advise there is no daytime lighting of runway / taxiway / approach lights (yet).

If you arrived at / around dawn there could be said lighting for a short while.

 


for now, cheers

I sometimes think we often put too much emphasis on real weather. I know it's cool, but when you weigh things up, it isn't really a deal breaker to create your own weather and fly in the conditions you prefer 😊 Just sayin!

I do like the challenge of real weather, and as you know AS will change slightly while enroute. Makes it a little more real.

I agree 100% Lee, I wouldn't fly anything else, but I guess I'm just throwing ideas around.

Valid point, I just can’t seem to be into it if I don’t use real weather, In fact I can’t remember last time I used the sim without real weather, I’m talking years and years and years ago.

I agree....I do love real weather as much as the next simmer....but sometimes I just want to enjoy the scenery and take an uncomplicated flight, and there are actually clear days when you get beautiful dusk departures like this outta' Salt Lake....

Headed up to Yellowstone and I have to say the flight, scenery and sky were stunning. 🙂
