Dovetail Detail Flight Sim World’s Upcoming Dynamic Weather Update


In a post on their website, Dovetail has outlined what dynamic weather will look like in FSW.

First off, let’s get the release date out of the way. The update bringing dynamic weather to the skies of Flight Sim World will be released on February 1st, 2018.

In FSW currently, you have a choice of static weather themes to choose from, with your flight being conducted in that theme for the entirety of your session. Everything remains the same, winds, cloud types cloud heights, visibility, etc. With dynamic weather, however, this is not the case. When dynamic weather is enabled, the engine reads data from thousands of weather stations all around the world and determines the conditions from the METAR strings that Dovetail have created.

In an effort to ensure the conditions are not always the same, Dovetail have created multiple environments through the inclusion of seasonal strings. Over time, this will be expanded to provide “an incredibly rich and varied flight environment”. With dynamic weather enabled, the sim will read in weather strings from nearby weather stations, thus determining the conditions rendered. This ensures the conditions at your arrival airport will not be the same as the conditions from your departure airport, as it is in real life.
