Hi, I've mentioned this in email with support about a download issue I had (from a reseller), but thought it might be worth posting in the forum for reference. I seem to be missing wind & temperatures aloft for large areas (I had thought this was a global issue, but I've since found a handful of points where there is data). I'm running REX3 Essential+ Overdrive w/ SP3 and the hotfix (ver 3.8.2014.1211), in Windows 7 (x64), installed to R:\Flight\REX..., run as admin. I'm aiming the weather at P3D v3.3.5, but not yet getting that far. I've tried with various options set (changing one at a time, restarting REX after each): Standard & WX Plus engine modes, smoothing enabled & disabled, real weather, VATSIM weather, live, archive (though I've since read in FAQ that archive reports don't retain aloft data (would temps be extrapolated to preserve roughly correct pressures at altitude?)), and most recently, random theme weather; in all circumstances I see little or no wind & temperature data above surface height. I'm wondering if perhaps I've got a database issue causing patchy weather data, since I noticed that as I generate or load flight plans, the numerical ID shown for waypoints in the Flight Planner summary doesn't reset - I'm prepared to be corrected (given that this is 99.9% hunch), but that doesn't seem like expected behaviour? I would think that it's only really useful to show a numerical ID to the user if it's to indicate sequence in the current plan; if waypoints are indexed for reasons of cached resolution, I can't see much need for me as the user to see it, but logically it doesn't seem to work that way, as the index isn't unique (i.e. if I load/generate a plan with 20 waypoints, and EGCC is the first; then load/generate another with EGCC as the first, the second time it'll be ID 21 (rather than showing 1 again)). Possible clue or red herring? I'd be eternally grateful for any advice. Regards, Rob. Example 1: 'Basic' settings - Engine: Standard, Data: Real/Live, Vis/Wind Smoothing: Disabled, flight plan generated using REX interface (i.e. with its own waypoint data). Example 2: Settings as above, flight plan generated by Pro-ATC/X from AIRAC 1608 airway route. I've lots more screenshots, but I'll spare you dear reader, for now! One other interesting example, I thought, was when I set-up a random weather theme around EGCC (in Wx Plus mode, no smoothing). I tried with REX generated and 'external' AIRAC 1608 airway plans, and the only points with weather aloft data were the same as in the examples above (respectively). -EDIT- P.S: Thinking it might be down to local data issues, I even tried looking for data at KJFK, and have seen nothing there.
