Microbursts in IF


What weather settings should I have on to simulate a microburst in IF? Is it even possible to make a microburst in IF?


max everything on the weather settings, that is what I would do!!

More complex than turning the weather settings all the way up.

As far as I’m aware winds are simulated only on a horizontal plane with multiple layers for accurate winds at different altitudes. Even if winds were going downwards, IF’s weather partner would simulate that horizontally at the speed it’s traveling horizontally. (and of course the heading would be simulated too)

Therefore, you shouldn’t be able to simulate a microburst.

Not 100% sure so don’t quote me on that. Why I said “shouldn’t” instead of “can’t”.
