Safe to say it is widely resolved?

Flew KLAX - CYVR yesterday. METAR showed heavy OC and rain at CYVR, so MSFS beautifully replicated the weather.

Was just fine on the Queensland coast last night for my flight, although I didn't check METAR just general live weather and it matched up to reality.

It’s been fully resolved. Topic was closed on the official forum. I would recommend doing the same here as this issue has been put to bed.

Clouds beginning over West Virginia on a flight from BWI to ORD would be 100 percent correct based on the latest GOES East satellite photo.

I checked the satellite maps on both NOAA and the Weather Underground when I saw them to see if they should be there. The clouds in the RW were still over Ohio at the time. Front edge was near Columbus. They probably moved into W Va behind me.

New Zealand only reports METARS on the international WMO METAR feed for the two largest airports: NZAA (Auckland) and NZCH (Christchurch). Only residents of New Zealand, who access the data from a NZ ISP can get free real-time METARS for any other airports within the country.

Any users outside of the country who need NZ METAR data have to pay the government of New Zealand for it. 

This means that if we connect to NZ VPN the metars would be ok , or MSFS will disregard it anyway?

I think there's a misunderstanding. What Jörg tried to say is, that there are less available sources for weather data in New Zealand (caused by some of New Zealands weather stations not providing their data to common weather distribution services). This has nothing to do with from which country a MSFS pilot is connected with his sim. It's just about MSFS not being able to get (reliable) weather through the usual sources here.

The METARS used in live weather don’t come directly from the country in which you reside (or connect to via VPN) - they come from MeteoBlue in Switzerland, which provides the live weather data for MSFS.

I assume that MB, like any other weather data provider, gets METARS from the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) data feed. The WMO continuously gathers and compiles hourly METARS from around the world and provides them to all interested parties. Since only the three NZ airports are available from the WMO, that would be all that MB (and thus MSFS Live Weather) has access to.
