    13. Rain mod: 100% (?)
    You can increase / decrease the rain rate by this percentage. E.g. 200% -> twice as much rain rate as it would be for 100%.

    14. Rain Limit: 30% (To limit the amount of rain).
    Exactly, but this is the amount like shown ingame (e.g. 6%). So you can avoid monsuns. Actually the rain rates by most weather engines are so low that I would leave it open on 100%

    15. Toff: 0% (?)
    Temperature offset. Its not %, its degree. Nowaday temps can be down to < 10°C, or even minus. That way you can bring it up to 10-20°C range approx. by adding a value.

    Hello @Stefan_L_01 , I try to use your plugin/program and I have no information displayed in the client :
    upload_2019-11-21_0-55-22.png

    How the plugin and the program communicate, because I'm not on the default port of rF2.
    The plugin is in <rFactor 2>\Bin64\Plugins
    The program is in a tool folder of the same PC
    The CustomPluginVariables.JSON have this configuration :
    "WeatherControlPlugin.dll":{
    " Enabled":1,
    "UID":0
    },
    The rF2GeoData.xml is in User AppData\Roaming\rF2WeatherPlugin\

    I don't know what I do wrong.

    In the championships (ISR) that we use the plugin I usually modify the temperature of the track manually based on the data provided by this link ;)

    No, for the moment I just try to have "Connected" displayed, so I let the manual side selected pending the connection, after I will test the DarkSky.

    I installed the pipe program and it says :
    rf2WeatherPlugin 1 1
    upload_2019-11-21_20-20-52.png

    I installed the vs14 redist 64 & 32bits, and no change, same status as the screen posted above.

    Hmm I cant say for the moment. Is any security blocking named pipe access?
    Is there another client running hidden with same Uid owning the access ?
