For me weather is one of the main challenging aspects of every flight simulator. Aerofly FS 2 offers some controls to change the in-game weather - but I always forgot about them, or did not take the time to set them to real world conditions, let alone set the time correctly. But wouldn't it be cool to set the weather conditions (and time) to real-life conditions by just the press of a button? To brave the the same wind conditions, wind gusts, or dark and foggy nights like real-world pilots have to do right now?
Actually there are plenty of sources for real-world aviation weather in a machine readable format called METAR. On the other hand Aerofly FS 2 stores its weather settings in its main configuration file. So...
I build a small tool called Aerofly-Weather (short: AeroWX) which copies the METAR weather and time information to your configuration file while Aerofly FS 2 is not running. AeroWX imports METAR weather information from an internet service (like AVWX and CheckWX) or accepts direct input of METAR strings (e.g. to supply METAR data for your favourite hurricane).
Keep in mind that while your simulation is running, your weather will not be updated. You may set your weather before starting AFS2, but the tool cannot change it while AFS2 is running (as for now).
AeroWX has been tested on Windows 10 and the STEAM-version of AFS2. AeroWX is a little rough around the edges, comes with no warranty or support of any kind, is a strain on the eyes, requires you to actually read its manual, and its installation requires Node.js and at least three terminal commands. You have been warned.
So here it is: https://www.npmjs.com/package/aerofly-weather
