WeatherLoader for X-Plane Released
6:00 AM | Tuncer Deniz | Comment on this story

David Janik-Jones has released a cross-platform program called WeatherLoader, allowing users of the general aviation simulation X-Plane to load current weather conditions from around the world.

The program is designed to download a "METAR.rwx" file that contains current weather conditions. The program works by placing the WeatherLoader application in the same directory as X-Plane and clicking once to download the current weather file.

WeatherLoader runs under Mac OS X, Mac 8.5-9.2, and Windows 95-XP. WeatherLoader is released as donateware for $1.00.
