  1. I have LNM on a second (linux) Laptop. I copied the databases and all seems to work. Also i pointed to the windows PC weather Folder. But when i look up the weather for an airport, only NOAA is shown.
  2. It's time we had a dedicated 'visibility in live weather mode' thread! I'm a IRL pilot. Live weather is excellent however ever since launch, visibility in live weather mode is always unlimited. Visibility never changes! I'm fed up of flying in almost unlimited visibility. Surely by now, visibility from the meteoblue model can be implemented in the SIM in live weather mode. Everything else (clouds, winds, temperatures) is! Please Asobo, model visibility changes in the atmosphere in live weather mode! I've created a thread in the MS forum: https://forums.flightsimulator.com/t/visibility-in-live-weather-mode/528186
  3. 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
  4. I just acquired MSFS a week ago. Weather options were working as they should. I could choose between several weather themes and also real world weather. Now I have no weather options. It seems to be stuck on the last one I was using which I think was broken clouds. Anyone know what may have happened? How can I get my weather menu back?
  5. Looks like those of us using displayport screen connection are having issues to see rain drops on the windshield (which are almost lacking). Well, someone on the forums has discovered that using a HDMI connection, the effect comes back. In case any of you have the same issue, worth a try. And in case it works, please, submit a report to zendesk. https://forums.flightsimulator.com/t/cant-get-rain-to-show-up/285049/13 https://forums.flightsimulator.com/t/rain-as-advertised/307925
  6. With release only a week away, it's time to get a thread going where we can post current weather events that might be interesting to check out in MSFS. From what we've seen in the Alpha & Beta, tropical storms expecially are big multiplayer events with lots of people gathering at nearby airports to experience the dramatic visuals and effects in their airplanes. The 2020 Atlantic Hurricane Season is forecasted to become a very strong season, with potentially lots of named storms due to very warm water temperatures in the Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico. As we discuss events here, please be mindful that whatever weather we will see in the sim in the coming weeks will also have real-world impacts on the people living in the respective regions, so let's try to keep our contributions and comments here appropriate and respectful. CURRENT WEATHER TO WATCH And with that, let's start with the current Atlantic Tropical Disturbance One, which is forecasted to become a tropical cyclone over the next five days with a 70% chance. If this system forms into a tropical storm or Hurricane, it will likely become Hurricane "Josephine".
  7. 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
  8. Hi, Would like to ask if I am doing something wrong on that: Rex Weather Force now provides a metar_report.xml file, that is updated regularly. As I wanted pilot2atc to get the weather from this file instead from NOAA, in the WX tab of the options I linked to the directory (XXX:\rex weather force bla bla\export\ ) and checked the option to use REX. But... nothing happens. Tried different locations (in sim), did this on different times (in sim and in real), disabled UAC, started as admin, blah blah... Pilot2ATC simply doesn't show me the weather. ATIS tells me it's not available and the alt setting is always 29.92. The second thing: in the options traffic tab if the checkbox is checked, traffic warnings keep coming when taking off and landing or passing low in the vicinity of an airport. But if I ask for clearance to cross a rwy I often get cleared into departing traffic. This feature doesn't work (at least in MSFS) at all... 😞 and the third thing: How do I put "new" airports and airfields into the database? MSFS has many airfields that doesn't exist in pilot2Atc. I tried to run the new "makerunways" for fs2020 and then let pilot2atc pick up the date from the files. But I ended up in like 3 x 2 hours "reading data" with 2 x empty database in the end. The third time it obviously turned out better, but still no new airports. And yes... I checked the files manually. The airports are there... Any ideas how to solve that?
  9. Hi, Impossible to get NOAA weather in pilot2atc even with Recentmetar.xml still blank whatever I try. I even tried to put metar from X-Plane and to set the mode on sim weather with right folder. Nothing : "Weather not available". Any Idea ? What should be the XML format of recentmetar.xml ? I could try to put it manually. Last question: What url is called to get data on NOAA ? I could try also manually. Thanks,
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. Finally! Surface winds in the USA are working. I can see waves on lakes, and the windsock is moving!! The weather still isn't live, it's maybe 4 hours old but it's a step in the right direction. Finally crosswind landings are possible.
  13. I have never tried flying into a storm in reallife so I cannot compare the realism but the lightning effect in FS2020 bugs me. The lightning strikes are far too many, and also the fadeout of the light flash seems way too slow to me. It's a minor complaint really but it just drives me nuts when I'm giving myself a good challenge by setting up a storm to fly in.
  14. Hi, I would like to fly with Real Time Weather BUT being able to disable surface winds. It looks as if I can't do that with standard options in MS FS2020 once real weather mode i sticked. Does anybody know if there is any add-on (payware or freeware) that can do that ? Any other suggestion very much appreciated Regards José Ignacio
  15. Two observations on windsocks: 1) their response to the wind seems absurd. They often seem to glitch about left and right, up and down in a stop-motion fashion without any real fluidity and don’t seem to provide a reliable indication of wind direction or speed. 2) I’ve noticed their placement often doesn’t match the real world. I’ve wondered why this is the case, and whether it could make for a straightforward fix. Oftentimes the windsock’s location is really obvious from satellite imagery, as it sits at the centre of a large painted circle. I’m no expert on these things, but I would assume that one way there location could be determined is by programming the AI to identify those circles from the sat imagery and position the windsocks accordingly. Any thoughts? Be nice 😋
  16. 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!
  17. 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?
  18. 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
  19. 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.
  20. Hey! What are you doing? Are you flying into some nasty weather? Not sure? Check it out with this: http://store.rexdownload.com/advanced-weather-radar-for-fsx-fsx-steam-edition-and-p3d-v25-v323/10-wx-advantage-radar.html
  21. This is the 1st sim that I can honestly say that out of the box...the nasty weather looks ominous enough that I was genuinely scared when I loaded up "thunderstorms" in the sim and this was at the departure end......I did the tightest 180 in the history of flight and high-tailed it out of there! As I got further away...you could really get a sense of how high the tops were.....this is an awesome shot!
  22. Dave, I have FSUIPC7 beta running and am connected to MSFS. What I am unsure of is how and where to get the Weather from the Sim so that P2A and MSFS mirror one another. Thanks, Scott
  23. Here's some impressions from my first flight in the Citation Longitude on August 18, 2020. I took off from Cabo San Lucas on the tip of the Baja California peninsula and headed south towards Hurricane Genevieve, that was strengthening at that time and was just forming its eye. This was the real-life satellite view at 1800Z. Climbing out of Cabo San Lucas Beautiful plane model, outside and in the cockpit details First view of the outer rain bands of the Hurricane, on the horizon as well as on NEXRAD When I was right on top of it, NEXRAD actually showed the eye that was starting to form One final look from above And we're going in Caught some icing on the way down First view of the eyewall And we're in
