loading of real world weather

#1
An annoying feature of FSX when loading up a saved flight using real world weather is that this is not downloaded before the flight starts. I have to manually do this each time. Should be automatic if RWW is the 'saved' parameter.

Not noticed this in 2004 though!

But, if the sim did that, a person would not be able to save any weather they found interesting with a flight. (??)

What I am saying is, if you go to Orlando, Florida, with a hurricane just offshore, and you have nasty wx there, and you create a flight there at MCO, once you save that flight with that nasty wx, the next time you loaded the flight, the sim would re-download the weather, giving you clear skies. Bam, your whole hurricane wx saved flight is gone.

weather options

Mace,
I agree your point should you wish to retain an interesting weather pattern. if you have 'RWW updated' installed it will download new weather anyway (eventually) so the beginning scenario will be lost regardless.

I suppose the best option when restoring a saved flight with RWW is to ask at the outset (before continuing the flight) if you want to retain the saved or renew the weather. The system could then switch to RWW static or updated as appropriate. Obviously the former option would not refresh the weather information.

I believe this solution would work to both our satisfaction.

You could also key the weather into the advanced option of the Custom weather dialogue. I have done this on several occasions to annoy my son.:D

Happy New Year
