Das Wetterprogramm FS Global Real Weather erhielt am 1.9. ein neues Update auf die Version 1.7. Es wurden mehrere Bugs beseitigt sowie neue Funktionen eingebaut, um eine noch bessere Wettersimulation zu erhalten.
Wer sich nicht sicher ist, ob sich der Erwerb von FSGRW lohnt, sei auf das Review von Holger Kistermann verwiesen.
INFORMATION ABOUT THE CURRENT RELEASE
Version 1.7 Build #012 was released on September 1st 2013 and contains the following changes:
.) Completely rewritten Network Bridge for better performance and multiple simulator support.
.) A bug, that could cause unnatural wind shifts to occur after completely refreshing the weather, was fixed.
.) A bug, that caused initial weather sets during flight when flying with a simulation rate other than 1, was fixed.
.) A bug, that caused upper air temperatures to be too high in many circumstances, was fixed.
.) A bug, that caused natural wind movements to appear in high altitudes although the setting was turned off, was fixed.
.) A bug, that caused exceptions and lost connections when using Prepar3D, was fixed.
.) Added a feature that allows one FS Global Real Weather Client to connect to up to 7 Network Bridges and distribute weather information to them.
.) The user interface of FS Global Real Weather now supports all DPI settings (not only 96).
.) Natural Wind Movements now only occur up to a certain altitude (around FL100, depending on the actual atmospheric conditions) which is closer to reality than the previous implementation.
.) FS Global Real Weather will now display METAR strings for each weather station review. However, these will not be exactly the same as the ones from NOAA (or other official sources), because FS Global Real Weather creates them based upon the actual weather data that is collected from more than just METAR data sources.
.) Data export will now automatically be done after a successful weather download to improve support for third-party add-ons using ourdata exchange file (previous builds only exported when starting weather transfer).
.) Updated documentation which now includes a step-by-step guide on how to create a shortcut with autostart parameters.
.) Fixed a lot of spelling errors and text areas that were to small to display the complete text in the UI.
ROAD MAP FOR FUTURE UPDATES
We are currently working on or planning the next mayor updates which may contain:
.) X-Plane support
.) More local weather effects. Please email your requests!
.) Further performance improvements for weather transfer
