real world weather failure

Recommended Posts

I've had FSX-Se on my pc fpr a few years now, and it runs smoothly.

Except one feature. When I press 'real word weathe'r, I get an error message.

"An error  occurred while downloading real world weather. Please check your internet connection, etc".

I have no issues with my internet connection, so what's the deal?

As far as I know, and experienced, the real world weather hasn't worked for a couple of years.  Most of us are purchasing or using free weather programs from external sources.

When I had my Sim computer I just hit OK, and it would put in whatever weather was locked in at the time all updates stopped.  You will still get weather, but definitely not accurate.  You alternative is what was already suggested.

Awaiting the new Microsoft Flight Sim and the purchase of a new system.  Running a Chromebook for now! :cool:

OK thanks. I use Active Sky now.

Let's hope FS2020 will have a working real wx feature.

FSX's built-in real world weather was courtesy of an agreement between MicroSoft and Jeppesen.  When the contract was up for renewal, it is my understanding that Jeppesen refused to renew the contract.  With that, the built-in real world weather no longer worked.  The upcoming MSFS will have a built in real world weather system and the videos and screen shots look stunning.
