Weather issue with X-Plane

Recommended Posts

I am using XPlane 11.41r1 and I fear there is an issue with the weather/metar integration between Swift and X-Plane. 

I am observing an issue where swift only transfers three layers of wind into X-Plane - either that, or nothing above 10000ft. 

When flying a b738 sim at FL350, the wind indications for that level are not appearing in xplane, only the first 3 levels that appear on the sim weather tab, consequently my wind at FL350 is the same as that around 9500ft. 

When investigating this, I attempting to view the weather inside the xplane settings, which caused it to reset and load the real-world weather in via the local METAR.

I'm not 100% clear on whether (sic) this is an issue with Swift or with X-Plane. Will have to trawl the code to work out how the integration happens and whether there is an issue with how xplane recognises weather submissions from the swift client.
