I find that downloading real weather is quite good. i could name a few times in my own area with mostly not finishing the flight because of severe thunder & lightning storms, were i had ta shutdown computer.
but one time i tried to land at the nearest airport i couldnot, the winds and downdrafts were so bad, with hail at the lowere altitudes ect.
that i diverted about 200 miles away to rochester were it was quite calm.
when i watched the local news that night, the news said that the airport had to close and flights were diverted to rochester, just like i did in fs.
but, i thought the lesser of microsoft flight sim.; only because they had cleared me to land, when if it simulated anything real, it should have informed me that the airport was closed and redirected me?!.
