I know it's not going to be appearing in this sim,but reading the forum there are people who are saying that weather is POSSIBLE to define by zones,and therefore,can take us away from the rather flat and static clouds of FB.With the unblivabl effort of design crews and programers and with better computers and memory Ram are we going to be seeing something more dynamic on this front in this or a future upcoming sim? Weather and it's patterns are undeniably a fundamental part of flying and combat flying in particular and please if anyone can shed some light on this i would be very grateful indeed.....

Thank you.

One of the challenges many folks are anticipating...is carrier landing, putting a heavy, fast moving a/c on a small deck with only an arresting hook to keep you onboard.

How much more interesting would it be if there was a measurable wind and turbulence?

Now the carrier has to round up into the wind, and the entire escort has to react to stay on station. The pilot has to deal with the wind, a pitching deck and, perhaps, poor visibility.

Dry mouth and sweaty palms! Sounds like fun to me.
