Lightning Detector

AFAIK Pete uses the data provided by SimConnect for the weather interface in FSX. So it's rather unlikely that FSUIPC4 will provide access to lightning.
Hi Folks

You should be able to model a gauge,
as FSX lightning is not random. :)

Lightning always strikes/displays
at the same locations,
and in a sequence, (albeit quite long),
relative to the user a/c.

The strike intensity texture displayed might be random.

Either obtaining code from MS,
or decompiling a file,
otherwise it'll take a lot of observation.

The difficult part might be initialisation,
in matching up the sequence.

Not sure about multiplayer here,
whether everyone sees the same sequence, or not.
