xEnviro 2020 by DarkSpace is a cutting-edge weather engine designed to enhance weather representation in Microsoft Flight Simulator. Building upon a decade of experience developing xEnviro for X-Plane, xEnviro 2020 boasts a shared core code derived from two decades of atmospheric studies and an intricate mathematical model. The aim of xEnviro is to provide professional-grade weather simulations accessible to all aviation enthusiasts. With over ten years of experience reproducing real weather on X-Plane, prioritizing realistic training scenarios, DarkSpace and Threshold have ported the core of xEnviro to Microsoft Flight Simulator to deliver the most precise weather experience in-game - now available on Flightsim.to.
One of the standout features of xEnviro is its real-time meteorological data, with refresh intervals ranging from 5 to 60 minutes. Additionally, users can access historical weather data at 30-minute intervals, starting from October 16th, 2022. The weather conditions in xEnviro are based on a dynamic air parcel prediction model used in real aviation research and training, ensuring accurate representation. Advanced atmosphere topology methods enable precise cloud thickness and density prediction. The atmosphere quality incorporates factors like humidity, pollution, and fine particle amount, enhancing the realism of the weather environment.
xEnviro provides actual wind direction and speed for all levels, as well as temperature, turbulence, and wind shear information. It even simulates in-cloud turbulence, adding another layer of immersion to your flights. For users without rudder pedals, xEnviro offers the ability to reduce surface crosswind components during ground roll. Furthermore, xEnviro processes seasonal data throughout the year, resulting in real-time snow coverage. This dynamic feature allows you to experience different weather conditions based on the time of year.
xEnviro includes convenient features such as the ability to look up the current METAR and TAF reports in the Weather Briefing window, providing real-time weather information for your flight planning. Additionally, it offers the option to display METAR reports for the stations around your aircraft, giving you a comprehensive view of the weather conditions in your immediate vicinity. xEnviro sets a new standard in weather simulation and is now available in our store.
