What's new?

You can also have a peek at the progress we are doing with the upcoming Old Town landscape.
To see the landscape in YoWindow you need to run it in Debug mode.
Run yowindow_debugMode.bat

What's new in Old Town landscape?

- Windows light simulation for living rooms, shops and cafes.
- Smoke from the chimneys.
- Autumn season added, now there are 2 seasons: Summer and Autumn.
- Beautiful autumn leaves effect.

:Yahoo!: Thx! Looks great. Only the screen format is still the almost 4:3 format.

Hi Pasha,

The Town landscape is fantastic, thank you for your work. :good: Maybe the lights of living rooms, shops and cafes are turned on too late in the morning. For example, between 6 am and 7 am there are no lights in these buildings.

There are three other suggestions, if you have some time some day. :)
1. The problem with the system tray popup window is still there: NaN appears instead of some parameters. In YoWindow 3 RC152, it is good, maybe this can help you.
2. For the Russian locations, still there are some problems with OWM data. Can you let the choice between METAR and OWM in the location properties window, the OWM could be the default.
3. Can you add the option between absolute (QFE) and relative (QNH) pressure for Settings menu?

Thanks for your answer in advance.

Adrian

Thanks, Adrian!

Yes, I know about these three problems, they are on the list, and we will be fixing them, I hope soon.
Yes, we need to add the pressure choice as well.
I wonder which Russian locations have you noticed to show wrong weather?

Yes, we will adjust the lights in the cafes/shops in the morning a little bit later.

Hi Pasha,

I see, thanks. :)

Currently, I follow the weather of Yakutsk (METAR: UEEE) and Sochi (METAR: URSS). On the whole, data are much better than earlier. For Yakutsk, the only problem sometimes is the precipitation type and intensity. For Sochi, the temperature is lower than URSS and handling the precipitation is not good here too.
However, it is not a big problem, it came into my mind because there is the option in the location properties window. If you can add different default value for Russian locations than others, and if you have some time some day. :wink:

OWM provides the current weather for places with no METAR stations.
We forced its usage for Russia with no option to change to fix the weather problems quickly.

Unfortunately OWM system turned out to be too young and unreliable at least today.
I hope to take time to solve this problem and give an option to switch the weather source.
I have this task on our list.

Thanks for paying attention to this problem.
Today Russian users is the majority of YoWindow audience.
