Sim update 11 and STILL the sim is unable to depict an overcast layer as it could do perfectly well
before SU7. We have all this gimmicky stuff such as the Wright Flyer (who on earth is ever going to use it more than once or twice?!), but something fundamental like weather - nope…
Asobo, do you actually understand that overcast means eight eighths sky coverage - which means no blue sky???
The issue after su7 is that they shows real METARs insead of METAR that reports the weather condition we have in the sim.
Well, too late for that thing now. Should have been included at release 2020.
I bet it’s better to set real METAR as a static preset around airports to make it 100% accurate. I actually don’t care anymore. Thats what users want. We are maybe few that want a dynamic weather system that behaves realistic.
Ok, it is still logged as a bug so you mighty be lucky or it’s one of thise situation where for some reason it can produce overcast. As for me, I live in Northern Ireland, plenty of overcast skies for days on end, but rarely in MFS!
It will produce overcast sometimes these days, but usually if that is the ONLY cloud layer in the metar. The problem is that when there are 2 or more cloud layers, they all merge together to produce the towering CBs.
Well i think this bug cannot be until the whole METAR issue is corrected too, since you need the propper clouds to have some overcast skies. Right now we just get puffs of clouds how are they gonna make out of them an overcast? If you get it then you will get the vulcanic explosion…the whole weather system it’s broken in my opinion…not to mention that storm systems are gone too…again usually overcast are composed of multiple layers of clouds, how many do we get now? 1 or 2 out of 60??
