Wx not updating

Hi there,
Just noticed the smaller airport wx info hasn't refreshed for 6 days. The big 3 have but the rest show "Report Time: (6 days, 12 hours, and 24 minutes ago)".
Cheers,
Nick

Re: VATNZ Skyline display outdated - Airways video screensho

Even though I'm not a ATC I've been thinking about doing it for a while and have been looking at modifying Euroscope. I'm using those videos for reference and have something similar setup. I'm working on modifying the font to be monospaced which is required for everything to be lined up correctly. I...

Re: VATNZ events are too unsuccessful/repetitive

I think it probably has to do with scenery and add-ons too.

Palmerston North doesn't have a good rendition in flight sim and FSX is missing an ATR72

Inland coast lines never made it into the sector file.

What you are seeing in the SOP is a user modified sector file.
Thanks Duncan

What happened to the lakes on the scope?

Hi there,
As per the title, what happened to the inland coastlines from the sector files?

Looking at the AA TMA SOP the lakes and rivers appear on the scope but not in the latest sector files (not sure when they disappeared).

Watching some Airways videos they still appear on the scopes.

Re: VATNZ ATIS Maker V1 Release

Hey Zain, how would you get 2000 foot winds?
If only the airport surface winds are reported and all people could be using different weather engines? Even if they're using the same weather engine the winds might be different.

Not trying to be rude, just wondering.

Re: VATNZ first time pilot guide

Hi, did this get finished?? Great guide for beginners, be nice to have that in the Pilot tab on the main website for those at entry level. Thanks Mark, that's the idea.

Re: VATSIM alternative weather feed

And as if by magic, it's working again. I have no idea why or how, but both my private webserver and the VATSIM weather are both showing current reports. Take Haast as an example: NZHT 281000Z 15007KT 30KM SKC 06/03 Q1028 RMK ALT VATSIM USE ONLY That's real Haast wather, not derived weather from a ...

Euroscope SkyLine mod

Hi guys, Having moved into Wellington and bought a scanner I'm quite interested at trying my hand at controlling some point in the future. I've been mucking around with Euroscope for a while and taking a look at the plugin system. I'm learning c and c++ at uni at the moment so thought I'd knock up a...

Re: Weather for AA, WN, and CH not using Airways source

Thanks Duncan I have read that in the past. Queenstown is fine, that is getting the airways weather its just AA, WN and CH which seem to be getting overwritten by the NOAA source. Hopefully I explained it ok. The system for getting the weather works but then the major stations get a less accurate we...
