I just wondered what the beta testers are doing in regard to FSUIPC wind smoothing settings. Have you chaps been able to switch off all FSUIPC settings and just rely on the improved wind smoothing in Essentials?

Or is FSUIPC still required to smooth winds.

Don't think it's that complex to be honest Joel.You may be over thinking a bit there.

Currently I use wind smoothing, and suppress turbulence. As the lads said above, thats no longer required, Essentials seems to be doing a fine job all by itself.

I won't be setting anything in FSUIPC except "non weather" related stuff, like extended battery life etc.

It's really great news that Essentials is handling the sudden wind shift issue so well.

I agree with MartinW, Joel. But there's a big difference between external weather engines and FSUIPC. REXE creates a so called "metarstring" for simconnect to communicate "into" FSX. This string is based on the metar data used (real world, stored, customized) and the various weather settings in REXE (wind smoothing, hyper smoothing, vis layers, wind layers etc.). It has to comply with the simconnect rules to be valid. FSUIPC reads the program calls from Simconnect to FSX before they are executed. All user settings in FSUIPC are performed there. So where REXE has to feed Simconnect, FSUIPC alters the actual input for FSX.
Basically FSUIPC can be used at all levels when using REXE, but you have to be aware that data that is already "customized" with REXE user settings, doesn't require FSUIPC alteration if things are alright. But REXE still gives you the possibility to use "raw" metar data without customisation by the user. So my "yes" was based upon numerous tests with the REXE user settings, which do actually give you the possibility to get things alright. REXE and FSUIPC do play together without problems because of the mentioned difference in approach.

Hopes this helps.

I don't think there are any "best" settings. It's subjective, best to you might not be best to me.

Eberhard has already said he isn't using any weather related FSUIPC settings.

Try Essentials without FSUIPC weather related settings and if you are 100% happy, you are good to go.

On the other hand, if you think you need a little more smoothing, FSUIPC is there to assist.

Personal preference.

Joel, when Essential is released, I will make a REXE/FSUIPC white paper.
