Question Wind simulation??



Has wind or atmospheric turbulence been added to the Earth or the XR-2??

Whenever I take off it's super squirrelly on the ascent. Also the flight vector indicator on the HUD seldom matches the direction of my fuselage. It varies back and forth as you can see by my contrail. I have to make little corrections with the rudder to maintain a heading. If it's wind I think that's awesome!! I just can't tell if it's a bug or advanced simulation :haha:

Yes, it's wind, but the implementation needs a lot more work, as was discussed in some other thread (sorry guys, I haven't gotten around to do anything on that yet).

What's that curious Moiré pattern in your image? Is that photographed straight from the monitor, or is it some fancy new visual effect? I guess people who like lens flare would be thrilled by this

It can be turned off under the Parameters tab of the Launchpad if you don't wanna be "super squirrelly"

wow!! cool! No way I'm turning it off! I'm totally excited about it!!!

My launching was so routine I didn't even notice for the past month. I guess I'm usually just looking at the surface MFD and temperature readout

The only reason I noticed was that I was trying to maintain a really strict heading to fly over the Richat structure and see how detailed it was with the new texturing (looks great btw).

I was just having flashbacks to when my flight stick started failing and the center calibration would drift for some reason. I've also had weird problems in the past with cargos and things mucking up the center of mass on my vessel making it handle in odd ways.

@Martins- It's a special photoshop plug-in that simulates taking screenshots with a cellphone! nah jk I took a screen shot the old fashioned way... or... maybe PrtScn is the old fashioned way...

For a moment there I thought it would only take screenshots in black/green monochrome...

Well, black/amber is good enough for somebody of my generation.

I usually use Snipping Tool but that highlighting and obfuscating looks pretty handy
