Weather Radar and Realistic Map
Currently, in infinite flight, radar/map screens are quite basic only giving us information on planes, airports, and our next waypoint. But I think that the map should be more useful than that.
What does a real map screen look like?
As you can see here, on this 737 the radar screen displays whether that could be encountered up ahead, allowing pilots to make a decision on whether to steer away from their original course or to just plow right through. The map provides a real-time readout of their position on the planet and provides pilots with information that could save the lives of their passengers.
What would this look like in Infinite Flight?
As you can see, pilots would be able to see weather coming up ahead, instead of relying on wind patterns displayed by the HUD or in the bottom toolbar. This would allow pilots to realistically avoid the weather if they choose. Also, the map would always be orientated according to the plane, in other words, the plane wouldn’t move, the map would move. This would be representative of how a real radar system works on IRL aircraft. Additionally, pilots would have the option to turn off the weather or plane oriented maps and go back to the one we have now.
I think that this would be a great step to making IF more realistic. The map would provide pilots a way to look at and avoid weather in real time, without having to use a third party source such as Windy.com This would provide convenience and realism to the already amazing IF experience.
I realize that a similar topic has been made before by @LSZH34 and @Chris_S however those were about different map related requests. If deemed that 1 of the 2 photos is not needed, i am willing to remove them.
