What aircraft is this in? Is it repeatable?

I have the same on E190 and historical weather. As I was practicing an RNAV app to EPBY on Jan 10th 9.00AM,  I've made several approaches. The weather was quite bad - lot of rain spots below 5000AGL. I used WX tilt -1.5 deg during descent. Sometimes WX radar on ND showed rain, sometimes not. The quality of graphic was as in Mateusz's post

Embraer195, yes, this ugly view is, when i have "zoom" between 2,5 - 5.

 

EDIT,

After few flights, im sure, weather radar work incorrect.

Is wx radar should show rain  when i am on ground? (during rainy weather)

Only if you have the angle set up enough for it to detect the rain cloud.

Nope, on ground even if it's on, it gets switched into Forced Standby mode in order to protect people around from radar beam.

It's a bug if it does.

What altitude was the rain v. the plane's?  What angle did you have the plane's radar (ie, level, down, up and degrees)?  You confirmed that the plane's radar was active and not in a standby mode or off?

I kept 3000 feet, and it was raining at this height.

Angel of radar you can see in the picture, 0,0. I changed the angle, but it didn't help.

Yes, weather radar was active.

Im not sure, but i think i found solution (i will continue the testing). 

Starting programs in that order:

1. REX EF
2. REX SF3d
3. Active Sky
4.P3D
5. Connect to vatsim (swift)

In this case, wx radar in embraer work incorect.

1. REX EF
2. REX SF3d
3. P3D
4. Connect to vatsim (swift)
5.Active Sky

Then it works 🙂

How weather is side loaded into the sim does matter.   Many add-ons in FS's history needed to be loaded in a specific order to work correctly.

  1. What is the reason for deleting my post?
  2. What about increasing the resolution?

1) because your attitude in that post
2) it will cost too much fps. Sometime we have to decide between feature and fps. 

Let's give this topic a rest, any further comment will be deleted.
