    You need aftermarket weather, and we can provide recommendations after you tell us your hardware...

    Sorry it took so long to get back to you.


    My hardware is an Intel i7-4770 cpu 3.4 gh
    Windows 10
    Directx4.09
    15187 memory
    geforce gt635 video
    disk space 1578 gb

    The video is excellent. No stutter.

    I use the weather that comes with it But it would be nice if I could get real weather. I haven't found anything yet, Any suggestions?

    I use ASP3D for P3d. It has a lesser version Active Sky Next, that is suited to FSX... The alternative is Real Weather from REX Simulations.
    Either will do what you ask for, having discounted the use of any free alternatives...

    A freeware offering for real weather that I know of is this:
    https://www.fsxwx.com/home.htm

    I personally stick with Active Sky. I used ASN for Steam and now use AS16. REX's weather engine disappoints me every time with its weather changes that is jarring to watch.

    All these freeware addons require changes to files and .cfg settings, Active Sky doesn't.

    Try this. Real weather, some options you can set, works great.

    I have been using FSXWX 1.6.2 now for months, Very satisfied with it. Only thing I have not noticed is how it updates the weather ?

    What is everyone's thought on REX SkyForce 3d ? Wanted Active Sky but my current rig will not run it and my new rig is months out. Is Rex the best pay wear that is not system heavy ? Thanks !
    FSX. As of now I have 3 laptops all utilizing FSX, 1 - 32" TV for Gages, 40" TV for Main View. Saitek Pro Flight Control System. Am building a new rig and flight deck. Most likely going to MFS2020.

    Rex Skyforce 3D also requires no mods to default files, unlike the Freeware. It can be used on any sim (except for FS2020), unlike Active Sky which has alternatives to render it suitable for later sims like FSX-SE and P3d so you need to consider future changes to your sim, or else things get expensive.
