REX WeatherForce incompatibel with SU9?

No but REX is consitently better? How does that work? Makes no sense...

What doesn't make sense?  You asked a question and I confirmed REX doesn't do what you want.  Therefore, my statements that REX often portrays the sky better is outside the scope of a local/global weather model.

Well, then I ask here again because still no one did answer me this: is REX capable of displaying a cold front correctly when using live weather? Means: half of the sky nearly overcast, a visble front line and the rest of the sky almost free of clouds? If REX is capable of doing this, I will head over and buy it...

Which other weather engines, default or add-on,  in which simulators over time,  have done this to your satisfaction? And did you grab screen captures that you can share today?

Just installed the updated version. Seems to work fine. I'm kind of hard pressed to say that live weather is better or worse than WF, but the differences are less than they used to be. 

With regard to the question above concerning the depiction of cold fronts, I kind of doubt that any METAR based system can do that with any kind of accuracy. During the early days when Live Weather was driven by the Meteoblue model, maybe that was possible, but once MSFS was driven by METARS I haven't seen it. I know people say that ActiveSky was capable of doing this reliably, but have to confess that I never saw that either. That doesn't mean it doesn't happen, but just that the instances that they are accurately depicted probably aren't that common.

Live Weather has improved so much over the last six months or so that I use it almost all the time.

I prefer Live Weather when it's working well/properly, but when it's not, I believe Rex WF is a good backup FWIW.  I can attest also that they've greatly improved the transition smoothing as well.

Tim,

Just purchased Weather Force (OrbxDirect)  just to try it out and it crashes my sim every time during the injection phase, sim works fine with real-weather.

Check if there is an update because that CTD during injection was the non SU9 version.  Maybe you purchased it just before the new version reached Orbx?

Thanks, I just realized Orbx still has the previous version. I guess I have to wait for Orbx to update their content to the latest version. Purchase was done 30min ago.

They must not be updated to the latest version yet.

I just tried the  REX F update and my altimeter reads 2600 when I'm at 5020 feet. Not sure what's

happening here. Check again tomorrow...

 

UPDATE: OK, I see what's happening. While sitting at the runway at startup I get the wrong 

runway elevation on the altimeter. But once i start moving down the runway the altitude

quickly recovers to the correct setting. Never had that happen before !

The default one? No screenshots to share, but I will take one the next time I see such a cold front (or warm front). AS for P3D also managed to have clear cut cloud lines splitting the sky de facto in half and allowing to fly from a fully overcast to almost entirely clear skies without any transition.

Other than that I hate such kindergarten approaches to a discussion like the one done here: "if other tools cant do it, my tool is perfectly fine if it can not do it neither". Even if none of the tools available so far could depict it correctly, it would still be a shortcoming of REX that prevents me from buying it...

"Often" and "consistently" are essentially not the same. Your statement was that REX is "consistently" showing better weather depiction, which does not make sense if the tool is unable to portrait one of the predominant weather situations at least here in central Europe. If you are happy with an uniform sky from horizon to horizon, fine for you, I then rather prefer the shortcomings of the default weather engine but at least without uniform skies from horizon to horizon.

End of the story.

Thanks!

There must be something random in the MSFS weather system. In SU9 it worked once (until 300nm out of the airport of origin as per first post in this thread). But now, each time I fire up MSFS, no matter where in the world, I get clear skies. Weather injection in my case seems to be a random thing. But what causes that?

Well, anyway, as soon as ORBX has updated the WF version, I am off again!
