  1. Evening everyone, So I recently purchased FS Global Real Weather and to be honest i don't really like the whole integration process. I like everything to be seamless and work in the background like ActiveSky. With FS global Real Weather you have to start the program then run the weather then start the sim then inject the weather, Yea not for me. So my question is, if I just use the normal default weather download from with in Xplane 11 and then I choose Noaa weather option for pilot2atc will there be a difference between the two programs? so will pilot2atc atis read out the same atis as the sim? or will there be a big difference? forgot to mention that I am also using skymaxx pro 4.6 and real weather connector. Thank You
  2. You can search airports by ICAO and get detailed Metar and animated map, choose altitude to display etc etc https://www.windyty.com/BIKF?300h,2015-12-02-12,63.986,-21.594,9
  3. Name: Outerra becomes moody Category: Outerra Videos Date Added: 07 February 2016 - 04:50 PM Submitter: HiFlyer Short Description: Outerra update Hot off the presses, this is a look ahead at some upcoming features. Changing weather (accelerated here), global rivers, river bank erosion, rain, exponential noise distribution on terrain. Unfortunately Youtube compression cannot handle the rain well ​Rivers in procedural worlds has been a goal for quite some time, and has been a tough nut to crack! If you look at other procedural worlds out there, you will see oceans with a uniform sea level but never rivers. This is a feather in Outerras hat. View Video
  4. I have looked around but curious if there is currently a working weather add on for p3d v4 It may be too soon for this type or utility but i wanted to know if anyone has one working as of yet Peter
  5. Has anyone tried AS16 yet? As a current ASN user, I'm disappointed that you have to buy separate versions for FSX and P3D. As a result, it would have to have something special to convince me to upgrade. Thoughts?
  6. Hello Pilots & Carenado Experts! I own amongst to other aircrafts, the fabulous Carenado F406 Caravan II. It is a very fine aircraft and my favorite plane. Furthermore, I bought the Flight1 GTN 750 and have it successful integrated (F1GTN750F406II.exe) into the F406. Everything is working fine, SimStarter NG, ASN, the F406 including the GTN 750 and all my fantastic sceneries and tools but ... ... the included Weather Radar of the F406 does not work! I can press every button, turn the controller, especially to the ON Position, but the display remains blank. The device is definitely without function! There is nothing that I have changed to the plane, except the GTN 750 integration. By the way, I only fly with my Oculus Rift DK2, so I use only the VC and no 2D gauges! Now to my Questions: 1. Is there really a full weather Radar integrated or is it only compatible and I have to/must buy this WR tool? 2. Is there someone else with this problem? 3. Is there a solution to get the device run? I use for example the following Addons/Specs: Windows 10 Pro 64Bit AMD FX8370 MSI GeForce GTX 970 4GD5T OC (newest driver) 16 GByte RAM FSX Steam Edition (everything on a 500GB SSD) Carenado F406 Caravan II Active Sky Next (via Steam) Flight1 GTN 750 SimStarterNG FlyInside (for my Oculus Rift DK2) ..and much more I dont use DirectX 10, only DirectX9 settings (because the Rift DK2). I have a zipped File with some INI´s and CFG´s but I dont know, how I could upload it inside this thread? I hope someone can/would help me! Best wishes from EDHK, Marco P.S.: Sorry for my bad english but school is over since a lot of years!
  7. Morning All, Saw some amazing pictures and video of the Russian developed xEnviro weather and cloud application for X-plane 10 and 11. However, every link I click on seems to lead me to a description or a review but never a link to actually download or purchase. I did find a Russian language page with a detailed description and cost (nearly $70) but again, no link or shopping cart, etc. Any guidance, links, and opinions would be greatly appreciated. This seems to be a decent improvement over SkyMaxx 3 and offers horizon to horizon weather. Thanks, Stephen Luebbert
  8. Do you like flying in good weather conditions, but you are tired of seeing the same cumulus clouds over and over again? This addon inserts a new weather theme with 256 randomly generated weather cells in Microsoft Flight: Mixed Fair Weather Enjoy a variety of cloud formations as you travel around the world in good weather conditions. Download: http://www.mediafire.com/download/h00plp5s1ocgnv5/Mixed_fair_weather_theme.zip How to Install: Install the file Mixed_fair_weather_theme.flightAddon with the latest version of the Flight Toolkit by stonelance.
  9. Besides flying myself, I occationally enjoy watching videos of other skilled simmers out there. It's interesting and sometimes I pick up something new I haven't thought about before. I have been flying FS since FS95, but still have a lot to learn. One thing I have noticed is that people load weather into FMC during the preflight, and just fly. But that will give incorrect values. I don't know if ASNext gives the wind data at that exact moment or if it try to predict (anyone here knows? I guess it only gives at the actual moment), but if you fly a longhaul, values will become very inactual. I am loading all wind data during preflight, but I am also updating it during the flight. How do you do it? How do they do it in "real life"? I made a reference flight with 772 EGLL-YSSY without updating until moments before TOD to check this out, and values did really differ.
  10. Hello, I love P2A2, butI cannot get it to connect to any weather at all. Using P3Dv4 or FSXSE, I select NOAA weather with the radio button selected in the Config. or Active Sky while Active Sky is on with the path selected in the Config., the ATIS voice always says "Weather is not available at K___". How do I get P2A to connect with the weather? I appreciate your help. Thank you, Bob
  11. Updating this thread with misc. real weather situations as depicted by SkyMaxx 3.2.1 connected to X-Plane 10.50 real weather with Real Weather Connector. Standard X-Plane 10.50b7+ scenery. HD Mesh V3 by Andras Fabian. Clouds and atmosphere rendering by SkyMaxx 3.2.1 (incl. RWC) and Maxx FX 1.0 (custom settings). No RTH. Click on images for unedited 900p X-Plane output. Georgia on my mind. Fair weather above KLGA. In the ######. Ceiling. Layers.
  12. OK...so I got all the ReShade and PTA, URP and P3D issues worked out with the help of the wonderful AVSIM forums. Been playing around with peoples presets, and I like all of them...to varying degrees...but having trouble settling in on one. So, take a look at the pics, and lmk what you like best! The presets are from either AviationLads (http://www.aviationlads.com/my-settings/), Pilot Pete (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=10nPl-ydnBc), or the FlightBeam Visual Pack (http://flightbeam.net/forums/viewtopic.php?f=25&t=2647). In all of the presets I have my settings the same in P3D and am getting a solid 30-50fps on the ground with PMDG aircraft at FSDT JFK, and 40-60fps in the air. I have fps locked to 65 in the nVidia inspector tool. I can share my settings if you want. FlightBeam Preset Aviation Lads Cold Season preset Pilot Pete: My thoughts are that Aviation Lads and FlightBeam are the top contenders. Pilot Pete is good but a bit bland for me, although it looks much better in his pics I think thats cause he has tons of addon scenery like ORBX, etc, and does a lot of VFR low flying. LMK what you think! Also, if any of you know the settings to reduce the brightness on the sun hitting the aircraft without turning down overall sim brightness...lmk too :) Have a great rest of the weekend!
  13. Hi! I need some knowledge from you. Does my weather rader in my B747 works together with REX SkyForce weather engine? For now I use AS+ASCA. Is it possible to automatically download wx+ data into my PMDG B747-400 FMC? Does PMDG B747-400 weather radar show present weather in the navigation display in the PMDG B747-400 cockpit when I use REX Sky Force 3D? Can I see the weather in my navigation display?
  14. Hi everyone, I'd like to create this thread in order to regroup all the ideas this community has to improve FSW so DTG devlopment team can see all our expectations on one page. Having a team listening to the Flight Sim Community for creating the perfect sim is rare so I hope this thread will be useful for all of us. In order to keep this readable, your posts can contain 2 categories: - small improvments that could be implemented rapidly - big and long-term improvments (real world weather etc...) Please dont comment or discuss too much, keep it simple and readable, give your ideas that's all. Let DTG Team judge what is worth it and what can be done or not. I'll start: Short ones : _rain sound could be louder to feel and fear the elements :) (or be adjustable, the environment slider is currently not that efficient) _make a " visual smoke effect" if you look at the wings from the cockpit when flying through clouds to simulate the plane is REALLY in it. _make ATC speak faster like in real life _ Head anticipation in turns when taxi and flying (like in XP Realistic addon) Big ones : _ a "FSPassengers like" feature whith passengers screaming in turbulence (make us avoid the clouds) _Windows Voice Recognition for ATC would be awesome like in Tower3DPro _ ATC speaking with accents depending on which continent or country we fly
  15. I was trying to work my way through Airline2Sim's Q400 training course, replicating it as closely as possible, so I set up the Q400 at EGNX and saved the flight. On a later date, I reloaded that save, then realized they were flying in a particular set of weather conditions, so used custom weather to replicate it as closely as possible (mainly winds at 282/8). Overwrote the save (unfortunately), then tried to tune ATIS. Within a few seconds, I got a CTD. Reloaded FSX and the save...another CTD within maybe five seconds (while it still had the "default failures loaded" banner up, and I hadn't touched a single control). Tried it again with the same result. I then reloaded the save and immediately selected weather, and set it to the default "clear skies" setting. Returned to the sim, and no CTD. Don't know if it was the specific set of weather conditions/aircraft/airport, but I was getting a consistent CTD until I changed them to a "default" set.
