No turburlance on approuch!


New member
ok so im flying into NZWN, which is known for being pretty windy, anyway ive got the weather mode set to hirstoric to imitate the weather from around a month ago, I flew in there IRL cuz its my hometown and it was really really windy, so i thought that id fly in there on xp11 aswell.
when im coming down through the clouds its pretty bumpy which I was excited about and then when I get to around 2000ft (when i can see the runway) the turburlance just disappears out of nowhere, and it stays smooth the whole way in. this is really annoying because im want the challange of turburlance.
Please help!

It is likely XPRealistic that is interfering, remove it from your plugins and try again. I just flew from NZCH to NZWN and had plenty of turbulence. Once you have removed XPR and with ASXP not running go to your C:\Users\User Name\AppData\Roaming\HiFi\AS_XPL\Weather folder and delete the LastDownloaded.Wx file, a new one will be created when ASXP is started.

Here is a vid of the approach.

No problem, I see however that XPRealistic should be compatible with ASXP since build 7467 as per the XPR product page. You will have to turn off wind and turbulence effects in XPRealistic if you would like to continue using it.
