Well, they're all interconnected to each other. And if you set 10 knots on the ground, you'll have like 50+ knots at 500m regardless your 2000m setting. The system is weird to say the least.

After extensive crosswind training last weekend I think I can finally kick the rudders properly every time. With moderate crosswind there's probably no need for the kick. I noticed the surface effect on the wind is quite pronounced in DCS and I could see the VVI creeping toward the center as I passed the threshold... almost half the initial crab.
I think the biggest gain for me other then learning or re-learning crosswind landings was realization that some of my control axes were improperly setup, especially rudders.

It feels like a different jet now. NWS and especially NSW HI are a breeze now

What I'm not digging is how clouds at night when there is no moon or very little moon are white and bright as if it is day time. Completely unrealistic and cannot believe it hasn't been fixed yet. DCS is in dire need of an updated weather modelling system.

They are working on it.
They confirmed they are working on a new and improved weather system but it's taking a lot of time and it's most likely going to be quite a while until we get it released
