    Terra Emergence Project for FSX/P3D

    Great package, merci beaucoup!
  2. Isn't it SP1 beta? I have got visibility problems in Prepar3d 3.4 on higher flightlevels. Visibility is unlimited, no haze at the horizon most of the time unrealistic. Visibility sliders don't change anything. Under visibility options, the "auto adjust upper visibility" option disappeared. I went back to build 6118. Reg. Hans W.
  3. I think it is caused by your visibilty settings. Go back to the default setting of 75 maximum surface and 100 max. upper vis. I am pretty sure it will be perfect. Hans W.

    Best Weather Engine?

    Hi fppilot, I will try FSGRW again. What I did not find that realistic with FSGRW were the thin stratus layers which were generated much too often, even in heavy rain. Towering cumulonimbis in the METAR are in FSGRW always producing flashing lights and thunder. In the real world this is not always the case. FSGRW has some sliders for the weather radius, visibility etc. You will find it under Tools (menubar). Regards, Hans

    Best Weather Engine?

    Hi, I just read your post and as not being a troll I can try to explain my point. I am a simmer since FS4. And since the first commercial weather addons were published, I bought them all. FSMeteo, all the HiFi produkts from the beginning, FSGRW, OpusFSX, ASN and OpusFSI. The weather part in flight simulation is important to me. And I know that some people will not agree with me but when I am looking out of my window not far from Bern Airport (LSZB) I would like to see the same cloud scape and weather front from the west in FSX as in real life. OpusFSI is most of the time spot on. The others are not. Also compared with weathercams, which are available from all over the world, is allways in favour of OpusFSI. And the real world weather does not change that dramaticaly within one hour METAR difference that it decides about overcast or CAVOK. I like weather addons which are programmed in such a way that the influence of wind and turbulence are as it would be in the real world. I don't want to have sliders which let's me decide if I want up an down winds between 0 or 5000 ft/mn. That's nice for a weather games!. The developers of OPUS are real world pilots, they spent every spare minute in the air. Therefore, to me, they have a high credibility what weather simulation concerns. Then the dll: I have made the experience that the dll of ASN has a negative impact on the fidility of the other weather addons, they are not functioning properly. Stephen (one of the OPUS developers) explained on Simforums.com why. You may search for it if you like. But in the meantime I don't think it is all too fair towards the other competitors. And I thought that it should be well known that this dll consumes a sometimes critical mass of VAS, it has been discussed on the Internet several times. I know that ASN has a lot of fans and that's fine fore them and for Damian. I felt the urge of lobbying a bit for OPUS as a lot of people seem to think ASN is the holy weather grail, not aware of, or ignoring some negative characteristics of ASN. Kind regards, Hans

    If you are interested in a WEATHER engine which depicts the real weather situation at a certain moment and place, it is OpusFSI. ASN gives you nice cloudscapes and other features which are nothing more than belonging to a kind of weather game. The bigger problem: it puts a dreadfull dll in your flightsim directory which eats a lot of VAS but offers a nice (fake)radar echo on the ND in your PMDG products. In the meantime you will hardly be able to complete a long PMDG flight because of the VAS consumption. Then, if you have ASN installed, but would like to try out another payware weather programm, you will be unable to try the virtues of the competitors because this dll blocks their fidility. It would be fair if the ASN guys would have named this dll : BoycottCompetitors.dll . I have bought an tried all the HiFi simulation products but my conclusion, as a meteorology freak, was always: it's a pity, Damian never gets it right.......sorry!
