Which program is used to create the wx-files in VFR Guides Greek Islands ? I'm asking because I'm in doubt what wheater creation program I should purchase (AS6, Weather-Maker Pro, etc). And I find that the weather in the adventures seems to be so realistic, sometimes changing along the route as you fly! I would like a program that could manage that.

Kind Regards
Lars

Lars, you can of course create user defined weather in the FS9 weather panel, or even use the FS "real weather" option to download live weather data.

Just a thought...

Hi Lars,
I used Wetter 2004 V1.0 to create the VFR Guides wx files (and 'adapted' the weather conditions a little bit here and there to better match the story). I also use ActiveSky for daily flying. Wetter 2004 is a static weather generator that works very well. ActiveSky is a real weather program. You need to download weather files from the internet to use it, but it works very well also.
I never fly without (one of) these :lol: .

Thanks Jaap,

I've been looking at Wetter 2004. Basicly I understand that the program creates weather randomly. Is it possible to modify weather once it is created in this program? If so - how?
Do you make the AI-traffic with TrafficTools? Another program?

Lars

PS: Looking forward to your French VFR edition... :)

Well, the only way to change the weather once it's generated that I know of is: World -> Weather in the Flightsim menu.
And I use TrafficTools for the AI traffic. That's the only tool I know of.
