Wind smoothing P3D 5.x

Recommended Posts

Hi Pete/John-

As you may well be aware, the horrible wind direction bug is back, something which plagued FSX back in the day. Upper wind directions swing wildly making flight in the jetstream impossible. Would it be possible to reinstate the FSUIPC wind smoothing code until LM fix this?

Disappointingly LM haven't acknowledged this bug in their forums yet despite plenty of posts  

Good health- regards Keith

In earlier versions of 32 bit FSUIPC this was done by hacking into the weather code in the Sim. 

In later versions it was superseded by better ways in programs like Active Sky. FSUIPC has not really been involved for a while.

And, sorry, but we are not going to start hacking into P3D 64bit code.

OK thanks and understood, after I posted this I realised that if this bug is present in simconnect winds then the only workaround would be to hack the LM code. The good news is that LM have acknowledged this now so hopeful they will fix it
