Changes in Real Weather?

Recommended Posts

I normally fly with ASX althogh sometimes revert to FSX Real Weather. Tonight I was having some problems with ASX! I was getting a "Reinforcing Depiction" message followed by many Wave Effect Strength =1 messages. Which was ok but was causing some stuttering which wasn't there before. So I exited out of FSX and ASX, and restarted FSX and activated Real Weather. I was surprised to get a DNS change warning from my Norton Firewall. A little leary of ok'ing it, I finally did for that session only. I was rewarded by one of the most realistic low level turbulent flight I have had in FS. It reminded m of my very first flight in a Cessna 172 when I was 9 years old. That flight was pretty turbulent itself. Has anybody else noticed any new behavior from FSX Real Weather?

FSX real weather option turns out to be pretty good, I think. I usually use that in lieu of ASX. On my system running ASX concurrently slows down FSX alot.

Is there a way you can save a real world weather setting to be used in a later flight? Sometimes you get some interesting scenerios and it would be nice if you could actually save them.

It was a VERY rough ride today - the autoflight system was going nuts because the wind was changing direction and speed every 1 second interval. Which is actually great if you're after absolute realism - but the models I fly do NOT respond well to this sort of thing.However - you can't beat it for realism.
