Should I get a weather addon?

It is not a requirement to get a weather addon like Real Environment Xtreme or Active Sky, because most pilot clients will have a basic weather engine themselves, however they are not very realistic and usually only portray the METAR of the airports you are flying close to. To add a great deal of realism, it’s wise to use a weather addon. In most cases the weather of the weather addon is similar to VATSIM weather, however some weather engines also come with an option to use VATSIM weather. More in the video above!
