weather question


Recommended Posts

hi

starting to explore 'all the checkboxes' and especially the weather in FSuipc

'clear weather slows dynamics', I have a guesstimate what it does, but not sure of its purpose?

your requested feedback:

tried a couple of versions back 'allow wind change' and 'smooth wind' and got the 'partial fix' in the log, and didnt work that well, so end of that.

was flying Feelthere's PIC737X (great AC!) and has a rather 'sensitive' AP and was all over the place in high altitude gusts, and when Accelleration Rate 4x shows a real rolercoaster (wirh the crazy gusts).

Now with the latest version 4.253 and adding TurbulenceRate=1.0,5.0 and TurbulenceDivisor=20,20,40,40, also chked 'gradient visability' and 'random turbulence in clouds'

just flew Amsterdam to London

all works .. smooooooooooooooooooooooooth

windvane in HSI steady, 4x not so crazy.

log says 'Wind smoothing fix is fully installed'

well done

There's a slider in FSX's weather settings to control the rate of change in the weather -- the "dynamics". Changes cannot be turned completely off, only slowed. Since you may be clearing the weather because you want it to stay clear, or because you want to set up some specific weather and not have it change on you, the option is offered to move that slider to its minimum.

Unfortunately it isn't possible to stop all changes.

Now with the latest version 4.253 and adding TurbulenceRate=1.0,5.0 and TurbulenceDivisor=20,20,40,40

You didn't need to add those yourself, those are the default values it sets in any case.

Good. Thanks!
