How to detect lightning strikes ?

Recommended Posts

I just finished my first traffic detection gauge (based on the ATD300, and now available from the AVSIM library) and now I want to start work on a new gauge based on the L3/Goodrich SKY497. This gauge is basically a traffic awareness system with a TCAS 1 flavour. one of the options of this product however is that the CRT can also be used as a stormscope (optional).But how to detect lightning strikes ? As far as I know this info is not available from FSUIPC (or is it by now ?), but I seem to remember there is some payware FS add-on that shows just that: lightning strikes !Anyone have any idea how this is detected ?Thx,Bj

There's not any way to "detect" lightning in FS9, AFAIK. I suspect that all those that proport to display "strikes" are doing some randomly, based on some internal algorithim...

Well maybe if I could detect CB's then I could "guess" there are going to be lightning strikes, but how to know where those's CB's are ?Bj
