Panel whiteout back in FSX


Recommended Posts

Peter, our old nasty friend from FS2000, the 2D panel whiteout in low visibility is back in FSX, in the form of a black out of the 2D panel and a white out of the corresponding view. This occurs mainly in clouds or low visibility. I'm hoping you can revive your old magic and cure this problem again in FSX. Thanks for all your great work!

No, it is completely different. Have you by any chance enabled the Miscellaneous option in FSUIPC4 to allow FS's own weather to be modified? That can do it.

There are bugs in the SimConnect facilities to control weather in FSX and this is one of the nastiest. I reported it duing the Beta. It produces some very weird effects on screen.

If you know how to reproduce it, just before doing so enable the Weather logging in FSUIPC4. Check the METARs being logged afterwards. The ones that are returned are influencing the ones that are sent back, esepcially if you use that Miscellaneous option. And not only are the reported ones wrong, the ones sent back aren't actually obeyed correctly. This is why I recommend not using it for the time being.

Regards

Pete
