Congratulations on P3D V5, so far the performance increase from my side is really great, and I love the new clouds renderings with Simul TrueSky.
I read somewhere (I think the interview on FSElite) that a weather radar should be made possible with default P3D tools (I guess either Simconnect or PDK?). I have been looking in the V5 SDK, and I cannot really see anything that may help developing such a weather radar.
My understanding of TrueSky (from their website and SDK I could read there) is that clouds are generated by their framework, so that would mean a more direct knowledge of where clouds/precipitations are, and also to generate specific weather at any location.
This brings me to make a few requests on the weather engine side:
- Please if that is somehow possible open up a performant programmatic way of scanning for clouds/precipitations at any given LAT/LON/ALT
- Please open up a way to set weather with local accuracy at a LAT/LON/ALT (for instance, place a TS cell at a precise location)
