Real Weather .... Is that working for anyone?

Recommended Posts

I’m getting real weather up on Cairns, but not real wind. 3 kts from the west, should be 22G30 from the southeast.

Now ATC are reporting wind as 138 @ 41, which sounds reasonable, but actual is still 3 kts. It seems the data is getting into the sim sometimes, but it’s just not setting the wind correctly.

After resuming a saved flight, Live weather no longer available , is there a work around to edit a saved flight so to enable live weather again?

I'd love to see #225at3Gate trending on Twitter, so that they'd have to react and can't ignore the issue any longer... #NotHappening 😄

Of course they are aware of it, but they should acknowledge it and tell us until when we can expect a fix--I don't mind waiting for another month or two, but the lack of communication is what's concerning people the most IMO.

I have it on good authority that the broken live weather was there right from the start of the Alpha's and that this has never been acknowledged by MS/Asobo. The only thing they did was advertising their great live weather in the partnership series; so I think it's fair to expect a bit more than silence if one of the core functionalities of a flight "simulator" is far off from working as advertised.

If they’re not going to fix it, at least unlock the weather system so others like HiFi can develop things further.

Do "they" have a Twitter account that we can tweet at directly?

The wind has NEVER worked for me...USA flying.

About 25% of the time the clouds appear to be accurate.

Altimeter settings are also way off from the METAR.

Because their weather uses a prediction system. METAR is only like once every hour, so they use meteoblue to try to predict what the weather is between METAR reports.

The Pre-release Q&A they said they might implement a METAR weather system along with the live stuff.

I'm getting high than 03 wind over The Dominican Republic right now

I wonder if its their weather servers being overloaded? Because I had accurate wind in Nova Scotia yesterday morning, but none for the rest of the day.

And right now I have wind above 03 in the Dominican Republic (though I have no idea if it is accurate)

Regarding altimeter well even you can't select in sim options to use hPA, anyway anyone have problems with live weather in Europe ? I have correct weather info in sim menu but when sim will load up then for example clouds are ok but wind is completely different than data which was in sim menu ?
