METAR changing gradually?

Postby SVW » Thu May 18, 2017 3:23 pm

Hi all,
when picking up a new METAR on the fly weather changes promptly instead gradually. Is that a matter of settings or "normal"?

There's no weather engine in which the weather changes not gradually.

Please explain more specifically what weather engine you run, what you expect to see and what you see instead.

Reading the wiki seems to be helpful sometimes...I was not aware that advanced weather settings are not saved when quitting the sim. I can compare FG weather only with Prepar3d which I flew two times in a big cockpit simulator. I guess it was their basic/default weather, and FG looks miles better than that. Downside: with all shaders/eyecandy etc. on my framerate goes down to 10-12 fps. But that's an "outdated-equipment-issue".
