X-Plane 12: Micro...

Recommended Posts

First, you saw it coming, but flew through it anyway. Second, you were high enough, so what's the problem?😜

Was there a shear ?

Have to test it too 🙂

I'm giving "Fate Is The Hunter" a re-read and completed the chapter with the DC-2 in the thunderstorm a few days ago. I think XP12's weather engine actually has the potential to make the sky as dangerous of a place as described by Gann.

In reality (unfortunately) there aren't colourful lines in the air to indicate microbursts 😁 - it would have saved some (real) lives. However, even without these lines in my video I knew exactly when the microburst will occur. Why? You can set it (like almost all other failures) at an exact speed or exact altitude, after an exact or (randomly) mean time, on keystroke or never.
If I had set the altitude of occurrence lower, I would have crashed.

No, only microburst. BTW - out of interest I just started the demo version of XP 9, even there microbursts are modeled.

Indee, microbursts were specifically modeled in XP9, with an option in the weather settings "menu", and I believe that it was absent in XP10 and only came back now with XP12.

But IRL one of the consequences of traversing a microburst is actually the marked shear, as you  go past the "central" downward flow the wind direction will suddenly rotate 180º... Should be noticeable in XP12 ?

think that will depend on which bit you hit, at altitude like in the video its all down, near the ground it spreads out in all directions from the center.
