Thermals controlled by REX


Recommended Posts

If I understand correctly, REX gathers aerodata, then processes it to some digital format and uses this output data to control X-Plane weather environment, by setting several values, like wind, clouds, temperature and the like.

I wonder, if it would be reasonably possible for REX to control how thermals are modelled, with regards to current weather?

Thermals have two values: vertical speed, which could be a function of time of day, temperature and dew point, and the second value is thermals top, which could be taken from slightly modified cloud base on the lowest cloud layer. Additional variable could increase or inhibit both values, depending on predominant cloud type and coverage.
