Live weather down

What did I literally say in my statement: to maintain it and coordinate with the vendor providing it when issues arise. 

Anyway, this my last reply on this thread since they're apparently not being read in full anyway. 

You’re wasting your time. Ever talked to a wall?

Speaking of petulant 👀👀

 

Perhaps you should look up the words hypocrisy and irony. 
 

I see avsim is the forum that keeps on giving. Someone reports weather is down and it turns in to a massive argument and derogatory comments. 

I suggest that you look at the context of my comments and what I was reacting to before clambering on to your moral high horse.

In the interests of less hypocrisy and drama I'll comment no further.

These constant (yes they are constant) Live Weather Outages don't bode well for the future, if it is to do with METAR reporting then they need a fall option to solely use meteoblue (like what we had pre-SU7 when it was better...).

Some people here seem to be happy to have these constant live weather outages and downloading more than 300 GB at 2.5MB\s

If II recall correctly, Asobo used to  use Meteoblue for weather, and users whined  that it wasn't accurate enough for them, so Asobo switched to METARs, Now they have a problem with Metars.. Can't win.

I don’t know what it is with a few people repeatedly using cars as analogies for flight simulators. They really aren’t a good comparison.

Live Weather down is frustrating. Personally, I can’t / don’t fly without it, so I’m parked for a while. However, it isn’t a frequent problem, and venting on Avsim is clearly NOT going to the ‘cardealer to get it fixed’. 
 

Frankly, crybaby emojis are pretty reasonable,

"VATSim users whined" and they very clearly harvested the votes to push it on Jorg & Asobo, 2 years later and we're still suffering from the same bugs since that inclusion (albeit SU14 Beta may improve upon this, hopefully). The best outcome would've nbeen an Option to use either or both, but Jorg literally laughed  at that idea in a Q&A and look where we are...I only hope they have a better understanding and at the very least a fallback option (for when Live Weather issues occur) for MSFS2024 or it'll be more of the same.

I work in IT with a ton of 3rd party vendors. We "maintain" the connection on our end from our servers to their servers. When the issue is on the end of the 3rd party the usual escalations, service response times etc. go into place with often some sort of command center bridge as the teams work on resolving the issue. That said, usually from our end there is a lot of "hurry up and wait."

In this case, if it's a call into a government agency, who knows on NOAA how they resolve it.

Rather than panic and start frothing at the mouth, I just went to this site,and got the weather for my arrival at KNTU.     https://metar-taf.com/?c=251003.-1041943.4
