Decent Weather Engines

Getting back into FSX after a two year break and a new CPU operating system. I've never been particularly thrilled with the default engine in FSX, especially when flying online. I know the FSInn weather feature is faulty as well.

 

I researched weather engines in the VATSIM forum quite extensively, but the last post I can find on the topic is from 2004. Any recommendations on weather engines that are compatible with FSInn when I fly online? REX looks good but from what I heard it doesn't update very much, which kind of defeats the purpose.

There are several good weather engines out there, some payware (e.g. Active Sky Next) and at least one freeware that I can think of (FSRealWX). I know dozens of pilots that fly with Active Sky Next, and they all recommend it.

I don't think the server that FSX always downloaded weather from is no longer in service.

Correct, Microsoft's subscription expired and they stopped renewing after they terminated support for FSX.
