    That's about when I noticed mine stopped working. Thanks. Hope that's all it is I really miss having the weather just work.

    Is there a way to change OWM informations? Their weather forecast is really really too "pessimistic"... I usually get heavy rain conditions even if in the real world it doesn't rain (for example, today at Spa I get rain but on the circuit webcam it is only cloudy)

    (OT: Is PC2 using informations like Wind, Pressure and Humidity?)

    I guess sorry to bring this up but does this work offline? Ive noticed it works on servers I host no problem. But when I try a custom race offline with real weather it doesnt set it?
    --Edit--
    Nvm I was stupid and had random weather on for qualifying. Seems to be working perfect now.
    My second question is it seems it will grab weather every 3 hours.
    Is there a way to make this hourly either editing the source code and building it yourself? I dont mind if that means I have more api requests as you get a million a month.

    Nice it is still working. I think it’s not possible because that would need to change the game code more than the proxy code.

    Lately I’m using the rotation feature of the LUA dedicated server to have random weather.

    For each comunity event, I define 10-20 rotations with same track/car/parameters. The only difference is the weather, so I make 15 dry scenarios, 2 light rain, other 2 rain, and 1 heavy rain, much more realistic than in-game random). Even the weather aceleration could be different in the rotation, so the moment that the weather could change is different.

    The only problem is that the rotations are secuential, so you have to make many rotations and insert the rainy rotations randonly in the secuence. One feature I suggested to the Reiza guys (AMS2 uses identical server) is a parameter for the DS to select the rotation randomly instead of secuentialy, to avoid someone tries to get the secuence (logging to the server many times). They look quite sensible to such things, so hope they can solve the random weather of PCARS2.

    Thanks, that'll help verify the rain responses. It's hard to know which bits of the payload are actually needed, and whether it's parsed as an XML document or is just scraped - assuming it's the latter, I still need to sort out verbose end tags and element / attribute ordering. Simple stuff but fiddly

    I have a question; Just did a Quick Race, Spa 24hr at 15x time over 90 minutes, so 22.5 hours in game time. The java reported wet weather to start off, then 3 hours later go to cloudy and remain cloudy from then on. In the race it did start off rainy but then remained rainy. So, does using Real Weather in a quick race just get the current weather and then it does not change?

    Suposedly it should change but I don't know if it would happen after 4 hours or after 15 minutes. Sadly we don't know how that funcionality was designed in game and if it works the same in quick race.

    wow, I'd completely forgotten about this, amazed to see it still works

    If anything needs altering or fixing give me a yell and I'll see if I can remember how to code

    [edit] to answer the question about accelerating time, IIRC the weather data given to the game only really works when you don't accelerate time - if the weather data says "rain for 2 hours then dry" that's 2 actual hours, not 2 in-game hours (so you'd have to be playing for 2 hours regardless of the time acceleration setting before it stopped raining). It's a but rubbish really but it's the game, not the app or the weather data that's doing this

    Ah, that's a shame. I guess that as the app gives the weather in three hour blocks that I would need to do a race of three hours or more to see a weather change. Still I like that fact that it gets the right temperatures etc. Seems like SMS missed a trick there though. Thanks for the app, and the repies.
