Announcement: InfoMETAR version 1.403

Recommended Posts

Guest DSandberg

InfoMETAR 1.403 is nearing the end of beta testing, and is expected to be released shortly!Major new features of the forthcoming version include:1) A new "Thicken" weather processing functionality that improves on the accuracy of the older "Thin" functionality, by importing duplicate copies of each selected weather report in order to increase its interpolation weighting.2) Automatic download and decoding of NOAA's forthcoming AFJ weather data reporting format, which provides combined METAR and winds/temperatures aloft data formatted specifically for use by simulation programs. Soon to be available from the NOAA FTP server, AFJ reports will contain both the current and forecast weather for each station along with encoded algorithmic curves for the predicted rate of change for each element, allowing programs to gradually modify WX conditions over time for realistic, precise and dynamically evolving weather simulation.3) Several new optional methods of displaying weather data on the InfoMETAR map window, including the current station model system, color-coded weather areas as in Fly!, regional aggregate weather symbology, or (for casual simmers) a friendly nature character shown in various descriptive and entertaining vignettes (such as huddled beneath an umbrella for rainy conditions, or chasing his hat for high winds).4) Compatibility with Fly! 1.0, Fly2K, Fly II, MS Flight Simulator 2002, MS Combat Flight Simulator 3, Flight Unlimited 3, X-Plane 6.51, Pro Pilot 99, Elite 7.0, Crimson Skies, Freelancer and Diablo II. (Note that not all InfoMETAR features are supported by all of the above programs.)More information about InfoMETAR 1.403 will be coming soon![table cellspacing=0 cellpadding=0][tr][td width=320]http://www.usinternet.com/users/mystic/infomsig.gif[/td][td width=170 align=center]IT'S APRIL 1ST, SILLY![/td][/tr][/table]

Hi, David. Great news. When metar files fail to downloaded due to server difficulty, you may have an option to generate random weather automatically for that specific flight plan. You may have an option to try to download a number of times before the random option is excercised.tony
