  1. I am using X Plane 10 own real weather and i download at start of each flight But during any flight, any region or any time i have never seen any harsh wind conditions or turbulance. All the planes fly like a train wihtout any movement or turbulance effect. I am reading the real weather conditions during the flights the turbulance is always at zero Am i missing something ?
  2. 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

    ASN vs Rex Weather Direct

    Hello everyone. As everyone know , Rex is working on new weather engine Rex Weather Direct. I bought Rex 4 texture yesterday and looking for weather engine. ASN has %20 discount on their products. I can buy ASN without upgrade(doesnt have money for upgrade) or should I wait for Rex weather engine?. I think Rex weather engine will has better compatibility with Rex 4 texture. I would like to see your suggestions.

    Pmdg Ngx Sp1c LNAV Problem

    Hi Everyone, First,Im sory for my bad english.. I'm using Sp1c Pmdg NGX and I have a problem with LNAV. After takeoff, I am activating VNAV,LNAV and A/P.Airplane is following LNAV path normal and smoothly.But after 5-10 minutes later,LNAV is deactivating and airplane leaving from the LNAV path.After this, I am trying to use heading for correction, but airplane is not responding to my commands :S Can someone help me about this situation? For information : Im using FSX default weather engine (updating every 15 min) its maybe about weather update ?? Best Regars.
  5. 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
  6. You can search airports by ICAO and get detailed Metar and animated map, choose altitude to display etc etc,2015-12-02-12,63.986,-21.594,9

  8. New fsx and p3d2 weather addon FSX Weather 3.5 Program FSX Weather is designed to control meteorological data in the game Microsoft Flight Simulator X. Iincludes technology xHead . The program allows to analyze real-time weather information, simulation of air flow and additional weather atmosphere. The program has the opportunity to obtain filtered meteorological data in decrypted form. FSX Weather allows you to download weather with servers providing METAR, analyzes it for text errors and complements it with additional weather extensions that are present in Microsoft Flight Simulator X. Not compatible with some aircraft PMDG. Requires FSX SP2 FSX xHead FSX xHead designed to control the internal chamber in Microsoft Flight Simulator X . The program allows to simulate the inertia of the virtual view as the user moves the camera through the three axes ( X , Y , Z ), store up to five different camera positions. The program simulates the visual and sound effects, arising from the landing gear, flaps, spoilers and spoilers. Management of the program to some extent duplicate control cameras, taken in FSX default. Screens:
  9. 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!
  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

    Active Sky 16?

    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?
  13. 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
  14. Hello, After loading OPUS weather, the weather loads (cloud, visibility etc), but after a couple of seconds, the weather disappears and return to CAVOK (back to what I started with). I am using FSInn (VATSIM), I have 'Disabled weather by default', I have tried running in CAVOK condition with FSInn, and running the program without touching the weather config settings. I have to my knowledge disabled the FSInn weather. It seems to me something is stopping OPUS weather from staying 'loaded'?? Also, I am seeing the OPUS software updating the weather, but again, something seems to knock it out after a couple of seconds. Any help, much appreciated!
  15. Hi all, I'm a big fan of PMDG, you've done a great job on every aircraft! Since the beginning a major scenery problem appeared while using the MD11 in cloudy weather. I use REX Essentials + Overdrive as well. This problem recently 'expanded' to the 737NGX and the 747-400. I'm not sure wether this problem is from PMDG or REX and I have no idea how to fix this. I hope you guys can help me out with this... Huge thanks in advance!! Jimmy (I don't know how to upload images, if someone could tell me how, I can add some pictures of this problem!)

    Weather Alternative

    Hi! I recently made the switch to FSX and was horrified by its real-world weather. It wasn't even accurate! I started to poke around with Active Sky, trying to figure out which one to purchase. I want to keep as low budget as possible. All I really need from a weather program is real-world weather. If anyone knows any good ones, please let me know!
  17. Hi. I love ASN so much...i dont mean to request this stuff but 1. if there is a SP2 would you guys be willing to add less visibility so that you hardly see the end of the wing in any type of cloud like in real life( not that you guys really haven't done that(love that feature)) 2. more accurate weather display (taken from updated satellite radar)(whenever im in PHX (i live there) it says clear skys in ASN and it is clear skys in real life but it doesnt display that in the simulator theres always a couple clouds or Cirrus clouds way high up there where there shouldnt be) a horrible person for being so picky on a great program(thumbs up on that one)
  18. 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
  19. 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.
  20. 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.

  21. Hi everyone, I'm new on this forum. I have been searching for a simple program to manually set weather into fsx. I'm working on a small home cockpit used as a trainer for pilots students. I've created, starting from an Arduino microcontroller, an instrument panel with all the switches of a Mooney Bravo ect... connected all via FSUIPC to FSX. The instructor station PC should have a program to set failures and weather while the student is flying. I've tryed setting weather via FSUIPC but no success... Does anyone know a simple method/software to inject custom weather into fsx without the use of the fsx menu? Elia p.s. freeware if possible ( sorry for my bad english... )
  22. 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.
  23. As the title says, How can I learn the weather over intersections without using the fsx default map? But I want to know wind data for certain altitudes. I have REX overdrive. Help me!
  24. I've been learning something new each day about this impressive aircraft. I however, cannot get the weather radar to work. Is there a switch, button, or knob that needs to be adjusted?
  25. 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
