Aloft wind directions are incorrect and/or shift instantly

Wind shifts and incorrect aloft wind directions are a common documented issue with FSX.

In order to get correct winds aloft, Active Sky Evolution includes a special depiction mode called "Direct Weather Control" or DWC.  With DWC enabled, ASE controls the wind parameters at all times and includes a basic level of smoothing of winds, temperature, pressure and visibility (when enabled).

Other depiction modes including Standard and Smooth Cloud Transitions offer other benefits, but aloft winds will be unpredictable and incorrect at times.  Therefore, DWC is recommended for the highest level of realism in winds aloft.
