The weather in fsx has not been updated with the current metar, even choosing to upgrade from 15 to 15 minutes. Does anyone know how to change the link in fsx to catch the metar elsewhere?

Fabio, If you want to use real weather you should look at a 3rd party solution such as open clouds http://www.fsopen.co.uk/software/openclouds/

At FSXEU we have noticed this problem as well, despite restarting the server to an FSX default weather theme for a day and then restart it back to real world weather, the weather ingame has remained pretty much the same for a good 3 weeks now. I don't suppose there is a server-wide version of OpenClouds?

If you run Open Clouds on the server clients will pick up the weather nearby but they won't get any subsequent updates until they join the server again.

There is no mechanism in fsx to produce a server version.

The best thing to do here guys is to use another party. For example, FSOpens' Open Clouds, OPUS or what I use, Active Sky and REX. These link direct from METARs and inject straight into session. The "Hardcore" members who want true realism, will use add on programs and not rely on the out of date FSX.

Remember, if you are experiencing problems with the weather, you should consider using an outside programme. Dave offers Open Clouds for free within a certain radius (I think it's just the UK or within a set distance from your starting airport. You'd have to check his page for the details) or spend a bit of cash on an addon

We are trialling this at FSXEU, a client side freeware weather addon that loads for 300nm, very simplistic. Does the job.

FSXEU now use the weather engine mentioned by Richard above and is installed for our users automatically when they use our FSX Service Pack Updater: http://fsxeu.com/spupdater

FYI: The weather that was being supplied in FSX... was dropped more than a year ago... due to Microsoft no longer paying for the service.
