    Hmm, a wet track seems only explanation. Weather mod was accidentally turned on for that server, so wet track is possible. Or damp at least. That was 6 months ago, but I don't remember seeing reflections. Need to do more testing.

    Just create those folders in the core rF2 folder, ie Plugins\TrackMaps\Tracks

    You can't create Weather Underground API keys anymore, any suggestions?

    @krusti If you download the last version of the XML file (cloud community file) on the first page, I believe there is a key in place.

    Guys, what's your experience with the real weather import into the simulation?
    We have set it up for our servers, but in the last time it is raining very often although there is no rain for the station on weather underground.

    Hi everyone
    I have a dedicated server, no GUI, on which rfactor2 runs and I would like to insert this fantastic tool.
    I have done several tests, but not being able to launch .exe, I do not know how to set the plugin only via FTP.

    On my pc, in local server test, tool works great, but i able to launch weatherserver.exe

    Can anyone help me?

    I've already asked him, but at the moment he's very busy and a bit unmotivated when it comes to further developing or modifying his tool. But he didn't generally say no.

    It seems that Wunderground free API keys no longer work. Is there an alternative?

    You can use OpenWeatherMap or Darksky, but you have to use the Weather-Tool by Stefan.
