Yesterday i flew from Berlin-Tegel (EDDT) to Stuttgart (EDDS). During the flight the wind changed very often. It changed within half a second from ~300° to ~120", while the wind was at 50knots! This caused more then two times a overspeed warning.
The wind was published with ~320°/40kt. I turned of the direct wind control, what made the situation slightly better. But it was set to 4° and 2kt per second not to something like 180°.
Another problem was the extrem weahter change when the weather was updating by the programm. I flew over a very cloudy area, the weather was updated and all the clounds disapeared completly.

Hi,

is there any update for this issue? It is quite problematically to fly every time waiting for the next wind shifting. :sick:

It seems there is a solution:

At least: If you fly in VATSIM / IVAO, XSquawkBox weather updater must be disabled.

additionally pls try to set min Distance and Time in FSrealWX options -> Xplane Weather update after

I'm running into the same thing using FSX and vPilot.

These shifts in weather are regular every 3-4 minutes and COMPLETELY opposite, so I don't think it's a matter of different winds at different reporting stations. That might OCCASIONALLY result in a huge wind shift but not constantly for an entire flight. Also, many of the shifts are occurring when FSrealWX is NOT sending an update to FSX -- meaning, the shift is coming from some other source. You can tell this by looking at the FSrealWX window when a major shift occurs -- or by having the option set to send the updated METAR info to the Chat Dialog interface. You will see that the shifts do NOT coincide with an update nor with a data refresh.

vPilot does not have a weather module so I know the data is not coming through there.

I believe FSX is overwriting the data from FSrealWX every few minutes. I have selected "clear skies" as a weather scenario from the startup screen -- I wonder if FSX re-inits the clear skies scenario every time the plane approaches a new weather station? I am going to try it again selecting "user-defined weather" and see if that helps.

Just did another flight, made sure the initial flight creation screen had "user-defined weather" selected, and did not have the major wind shifts I had before. So my hypothesis is that even selecting something OTHER than "real world weather (updates)" is not good enough, because FSX will still try to impose its weather scenario on you everywhere you go. Making sure to select "user-defined" weather from that front screen seems to have cleared this up. I'll have to fly a few more flights and make sure, but if I find it's still happening, I'll report back.

Hello,

unfortunetaly I have to re-open this problem with FSrealWX. I have set (in FS) User-defined weather, trying to set FSrealWX however, with minimum update interval (minutes), even update with minimum position in NM (as written in the previous articles).
Feeding data from NOAA, using DE server location.

Even with every setting I have still windshifts about 180 degrees, with many knots, which causes nearly unable to land.

Thanks for replies.
