I hear you but Xplane Does not! NOAA changed the HTTP to HTTPS at some point so Xplane cant download real time weather cause it cant find the website. I received a email from Thomas Meeks at Laminer he states that " they have no plans to fix it at this time". Really? You can make a amazing Sim but you cant fix a URL? Sad.
I totally agree with you. Moreover, one message online with how to change this yourself would be sufficient.
I think x-plane 10 is no longer supported. Anyway, although the Metar file is straigntforward, if laminar publishes the specs of the grib flies needed for global_winds and global_turbulence it will be possble to compile an alternative.
