Active Sky 6.5 Turbulence Question

Post by flybywire22 » 07 Jan 2010, 23:14

I was noticing the other day that the air was rather calm, on every single one of my flights :( I know most of the time you have a few bumps during climbout and descent, as well as in cruise so, I was wondering, how exactly do you turn on the turbulence for AS? Also, does it download winds aloft to cause the turbulence? Thanks!

Unfortunately I use ASA, so I'm not sure how to get turbulence working in AS6. :( Wish I could help.

If push comes to shove, you could check at the HiFi Sim forums.

Firstly, make sure you have it set in the options. Depending on what version of FSUIPC you have (free version or full), it can smooth turbulence for you, which you don't want. Make sure this option is unchecked. I may be wrong here, but I think the wind smooth option in the options (AS options) can also smooth out turbulence. Your best bet would be to try at the ActiveSky forums.
