Hello fellow pilots!
A lot of you are usually flying in good weather or pre-defined BMS weather settings.
So how can you create your own weather scenario and make sure you have a proper challenge?
Well simple enough, the falcon BMS community has some tools for you since Falcon BMS 4.33. Let’s review them quickly to see how to get the best of those tools!
This is the first tool available with the release of Falcon 4.33 and quite simple in its use: you can change Weather conditions / Winds / Atmospheric Pressure for each map square zone (most probably 1° x 1° squares).
The process is quite long but the tools can let you customize the weather in Falcon BMS to your needs.
You can find the tool here: http://www.weapondeliveryplanner.nl/about/wc.html
WeatherGen from 1st Fighter Wing
Really good effort tool from the community in converting a heavy client to a web interface Weather generator Web Tool.
Obviously this web tool contains all Weather commander tools with a bunch of settings to make things easier (or more complex)…
You can define precise weather evolution in hour ranges, get an interactive map, review base weather forecast, random generator and define region wind limits…

F4Wx – Real Weather Converter
Sometimes you have to make real 🙂 …
This is where Real weather Converter comes! Although it is still beta (at the date of this article), you can download it and search real weather recording (NOAA GFS) and generate it for Falcon BMS…
You can use then the weather as a base and use one of the previous tools to tweak it.
