  1. We are pleased to release a brand new version to our popular Landing Challenge Pro. Version 1.10 introduces 6 all-new landing challenges to test your piloting ability and skills. Take on LaGuardia’s difficult Expressway Visual approach or soar over Mount Vesuvius in Naples. You will also be able to discover Tioman Island at dusk, and also take a fully-loaded 747 into Sao Paulo across the busy city. Each of the new 6 new challenges poses its own difficulty level and takes on another worldwide trip visiting all-new airports. Current customers of Landing Challenge Pro can download version 1.1.0 now for free from your original store of purchase*. If you purchased directly from OrbxDirect, you can get the new version from Orbx Central. If you don’t already own Landing Challenge Pro, you can buy directly from OrbxDirect for $9.95 AUD (approx. US$7.69 | €6,36 | £5.47) (plus applicable taxes), or from our partner stores. Six New Challenges LaGuardia Expressway Visual The Big Apple has some of the busiest air space in the world and the high-rise buildings often make approaching the city a challenge. LaGuardia Airport, in particular, has a challenging approach right over Flushing Bay. See Mount Vesuvius Whilst Mount Vesuvius has been dormant for many years, it still offers a stunning approach to the Italian city. This popular route for many European airlines is the latest approach for you to take on. Discover Tioman Tioman Island lies off the east coast of Peninsular Malaysia and is known for its dive sites, nature reserves and shipwrecks. Test your piloting ability with this beach-side airport. Airport in the Brazilian City This airport is situated in the heart of Sao Paulo, but being surrounded by numerous high-rise buildings and having a short runway provides pilots with a huge challenge. Do your best to avoid the major city below you as you land in this Brazilian city. Great Barrier Reef Approach One of the most popular tourist destinations in the world is the Great Barrier Reef in Australia. Its popularity has meant the airport continues to grow and bring passengers to the area. Your approach today will take you right over some incredibly scenic views. Another Dangerous Alps Landing The alps have many challenging approaches and Megeve Airport is yet another one ready to test your skills. Pilot yourself around the treacherous terrain as you land on this sloping runway high up in the mountains.

  4. Hi Carlos, Thanks for the feedback. This isn't like at the moment due to limitations on the SDK and available tools required to create such effects. As for the support, as Jon said, you can reach out to us directly at https://sofly.io/support We try to answer questions in this forum, but we prefer the more direct approach to give help specific needs. Thanks for using Weather Preset Pro!

If you purchased through OrbxDirect, you can download the new update for free through Orbx Central.

The new presets are primarily focused typical UK weather to coincide with the release of the new World Update.

UK: Autumn Day Cooler air with a slight drizzle means you have some cloud dodging to do with this Autumn profile. UK: Indian Summer As summer ends, there’s still warmth left in the atmosphere, along with a subtle orange glow. UK: Summer Storms It may be hot, but these storms can be dangerous if not avoided. UK: Light Snow Coverage A small snow coverage with some snowfall in this wintery scene. UK: Frosty Winter Morning A cold start to do the day with plenty of ice and frost still on the ground. UK: Storm Christoph Whilst Storm Christoph battered the UK, now is your chance to experience flying in these challenging conditions.
  6. Thank you for the question. Simply put, the weather presets are left in that file to make sure it's readable by the simulator as that is where they default to. We experimented with creating a community folder, but it caused some issues and meant that people weren't able to then customise the weather presets. Hope that helps.

  8. Hi Steve, Just working through our bug reports and realised that you've called it the "Medium Clouds" preset, which isn't one of ours. Could you mean "MId-Level Clouds". We're trying to recreate the issue, but no luck with that particular preset. In other news, a new update is due to release next week (version 1.20), which we believe will fix a few other minor bugs with this. Many thanks
  9. Hi Steve5755, Thanks for the feedback. I haven't seen this during testing, but we'll be sure to check. We are issuing a new update for Weather Preset Pro later this month and if we can see the issue, we'll resolve it. In the mean time, you are able to open up the weather tab from the menu in the sim and adjust many of the values yourself to ensure your plane doesn't get battered by the winds. Thanks again and we'll be sure to keep you updated when there's an update. Thanks
  10. The setting isn't airport specific. The ceilings would typically be the same regardless of airport and the elevation. There may be some slight variation as MSFS depicts clouds at slight variations (we found anyway) even with the min/max cloud ceiling.
  11. Hi there, The themes are based on AGL settings. The weather will simply show as clouds/mist/sun/fog/rain depending on the theme you use at that altitude. You can always adjust them in the menu setting if you have a specific condition in mind. The temperature is different depending on the theme. E.g. Cold themes have cold temps / warm weather have warm temps and so forth. Hope that helps. Jon - thanks for the tag.
  12. We are pleased to confirm that Weather Preset Pro has been updated to version 1.10. The new version adds 10 brand new presets, fixes a range of bugs and improves the installation process for customers. This is a free update for all customers. The new presets include additional jetstream presets, additional visibility conditions, new storm formations and also wild fire conditions. Whilst we’re excited by the new presets, we’re also pleased to have found better ways to implement some of our ideas in the previous build and used new techniques to make them more visually appealing and realistic to fly through. We have toned down some of the harsh winds from some of the conditions and improved how your aircraft controls during those stormy approaches. If you haven’t already purchased a copy, buy yours today. Just $8.99 AUD (approx US$6.54 | €5,52 | £4.97) Key Features 50 presets covering a range of exciting weather types Custom made presets that go beyond the built-in system Create exciting scenes directly in the simulator without the need for an additional UI Simple installation using a dynamic installer A 20-page manual covering all variations and an introduction to METARs How To Install / Update to Version 1.10 If you purchased Weather Preset Pro from Orbx, you first must run Orbx Central. If you have automatic updates turned on, the application will detect an update is required and download and install the required files. You can check by clicking on the “cog” icon and then “auto updates”.
  13. Thank you all for the positive words. With the release of the new Microsoft Flight Simulator update and the subsequent patch, we waited to update to ensure it all still worked with that version. We're awaiting on a new installer being built and then will send to the stores to enable customers to download the free update. Hopefully won't be long now!
  14. Thanks for the comment. I understand there's some frustrating elements with a few of the presets and your feedback has helped us to identify some issues we have since fixed. I disagree on the silence as we have responded to your comments, and others who have had feedback, as well as replying to any support tickets that have come through. Our support portal is our primary tool for feedback, but of course monitor forums and other communities too to help out and answer questions. We have also announced that 1.10 is coming soon (a forum thread in the Orbx forums and also on our blog pages) which again communicates our intention to release a patch soon. We have the files ready but Microsoft released a new update which we then had to test to ensure it worked. It would've been more annoying for customers had we released the patch, and for the new update to then break it so we had to issue yet another patch. We are looking to conclude that testing soon and then have the installer built over the weekend, so we are planning an update early next week. But then we also have to coordinate with Orbx, and other suppliers, to ensure they can get the update out to customers in a timely fashion. I know it's a cliche, but the patch will be in your hands as soon as it's ready. As others have also mentioned, you can make a few simple edits yourself in the interim to ensure that it works with your specific needs. Many thanks and hopefully that clarifies and answers your concerns.
