Thread: FSX Weather-the best add on

  1. Default FSX Weather-the best add on

    I currently have REX 2 installed but I am wondering whether or not there is any better weather addon that not only displays better cloud quality but also more accurate real time weather.

    I realsise that this is obviously a personal area but I would really welcome your comments and thoughts.

    I use Open Clouds. It is free to use if you fly over the UK but requires a subscription ($15 USD/yr) for other parts of the world. http://www.fsopen.co.uk/software/openclouds/

    Thanks for your reply.

    Yes,I too have open clouds when flying around UK although I do not use it worlwide having not paid any subscription.For freeware for UK it is very good.

    No,I am just wondering whether or not there is anything out there that is of real quality with up to date accurate weather which is better than what I already have.

    I've got to say REX + Overdrive is pretty impressive.
    On top of that they are coming out with a new version soon (not an upgrade) that promises to be even more impressive. Their website says owners of the current version will get the new version for free.

    I've been a long-time fan of the weather products from HiFi Technologies (formerly HiFi Sim). Their latest product is ActiveSky 2012 which includes flight planning and graphics.
    I've dumped REX (never a big fan anyway) as, IMO, AS2012 has superior graphics and far better weather depiction.

    FSrealWX is really great, it's the best freeware weather program!

    I use it with FEX Clouds.

    For the latest version:
