Weather / wind and shear settings in MFS...

Recommended Posts

Well,

as much as I would like to be more positive about the way ASOBO allowed for setting wind layers, at present while the interface seems ok to me, the effects leave a lot to be desired 😕

When I try to define a layer for wind and gust intensity, no matter how wide I set the frequency, there being some gust always appears to turn MFS into what would call  "X-Plane turbulence mode".

GA aircraft become totally jerky in their behaviour, trembling wildly, mostly ( I'd say 99% ) in yaw. It's clearly overdone and, incorrect compared to real world effects.

Setting the aircraft MOI parameters to unrealistic values can "help" with this symptoms, but it's far from being an acceptable solution.

I would also like to see a bit more of effects on roll ( one wing wanting to go up or down ) than just that irritating yaw / pitch oscillation.

Uninstalling flightsims is a temptation I can never resist...
