weather add-ons and joystick newbie question

Recommended Posts

Hello, quick 2 questions from a newbie who is exploring X-Plane demo version (only hours into it).

1. is there a weather add-on that will allow to set up custom weather like this: good weather at my origination and progressively worsening (overcast, cloud layers, etc) weather at my destination. If "progressive" is too much to ask for - just bad weather within certain radius from destination airport.

2. I did not see any place where I could map my joystick buttons - for example I would like to have elevator trim mapped to what is now cockpit panning.

X Plane is limited by not having much in the way of cloud textures however several addon/plugins have done an estimable job of improving on this.  Get on X plane.org and you'll find several.  Almost forgot - X plane has a comprehensive control assignment menu for sticks, throttles and rudder pedals and a similar menu for your keyboard entries.
