Hi Kees. Unfortunately I don't know very much about the way weather can be injected into FSX. However I do notice REX2 periodically updating the weather as I fly about the virtual world, so I would have thought one of the things it injects into FSX is the spot winds for a location nearby. These winds currently do not appear to be very accurate - I'd suspect this is more an issue with the resolution of the data on the REX server as opposed to the constraints of FSX. I would have thought that the use of the free GFS model would enable REX to accurately inject spot winds every X nautical miles, not necessarily to the accuracy I was referring, but at least such that the winds aloft are in roughly the correct direction across a few levels. Otherwise IMHO there is little point in advertising 'realistic winds aloft'. I am aware that a finite number of weather layers would limit the ability to replicate cloud cover, but surely there is a way to make realistic winds aloft possible. Maybe REX could inject a few layers of the winds aloft, and when it notices a climb or descent some different layers can be injected.

I've been involved in a few FS software projects in the past and I know it's likely that I'm still asking for something which is not possible within the constraints of the program. Therefore all I'm asking for is consideration of whether this approach is possible in a future update.
