for me neither the weather nor the time setting work correctly
The time can only be set in the menu of the globe, later when you are sitting in the plane you can no longer correct the time
The same with weather, in the menu of the globe you can still select everything but later when you sit in the plane nothing works, neither the preset weather scenarios nor the live weather, unreal weather or Rex Wetter Force functions, nothing, no weather loads
If neither live weather nor presets are working, please check, if you have “unreal weather live metar” in your addon folder. It’s not compatible with SU7 and must be deactivated!
I had this issue and after removing the addon and restarting, live weather was working.
Just did an approach into EKRN, METAR data and winds were spot on . Had 53 kts in 2000 ft. and doubted it, but it is exactly as depicted on Windy.com, and 24 kts on the ground were exactly as reported by METAR. But clouds were off as there was scattered clouds down to 1000 ft. where there should have been few with an overcast layer in 1800 ft. Looks like the weathermodel data outside the METAR area are screwed.
I am sitting at MMMX since I am testing a new scenery and blue sky. Suppose to be OVC at 2000 but now I see the sky getting cloudy and clouds filling the sky? So far 3/4 of the sky is clear the other 1/4 trying to be overcast? lol. Clouds move so fast that it is clear sky again…
I think that the issue causing these discrepancies, is how Asobo is displaying the clouds in relation to the METAR. It would appear that Asobo is rendering the clouds from METARs in heights above sea level (MSL), rather than height above ground level (AGL).
If you look at my post right above yours, it appears they are using MSL heights to display the cloud layers, rather than AGL. Therefore, with an airport elevation of 2600’ MSL, you would be in the heart of a thick overcast layer being reported at 1500’ MSL. It’s not how it should be, but that is how Asobo appears to have done it. Please vote on the topic Iinked above to get this fixed, as it appears to be the issue.
Yes it absolutely does. Now you mention it when I flew from Bristol yesterday which has an elevation of around 700ft and it was meant to be overcast at 300ft but I was literally in the thick of the cloud, I thought something seemed off and wondered this myself as well. Good spot.
I haven’t seen anything official, no. Seems to me they were thinking it may be a server issue at first, but rather, it just appears to be a disconnect in altitude type read off of the metars. I did submit a support ticket. But, I still have support tickets from a year ago that say ‘solved’ but that aren’t actually solved.
The Lugano example I highlighted in my post, would explain why people would think it is a server issue. To the casual observer, it appeared to be clear skies. When METAR says overcast, everyone would simply think the servers aren’t injecting weather. It was injecting it alright, just below ground
