How to Uninstall Older Version of Unreal Weather - Live METAR

You will only need this procedure if you have previously installed this mod by directly modifying the game. You will need to remove it prior to installing the Community package version, which is available starting with version 1.3.


To ununstall that version (1.0 through 1.2), you will need to perform the following steps:

1) Remove the custom weather preset file:

C:\Users\<YourUserName>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft Flight Simulator\Weather\Presets\UnrealWeatherLiveMetar.WPR

2) Restore the 2 original code files in this subfolder in your game folder:

Microsoft Flight Simulator\Packages\fs-base-ui\html_ui\Templates\WeatherEditionMenu\

You should delete following 2 files from the above folder, and then put the original files back into this folder (or rename them back, if you kept them in this folder alongside with the modded copies):

WeatherEditionMenu.html
WeatherEditionMenu.js

Now start the game and verify that a) the custom preset "Unreal Weather - Live METAR" is no longer available in the weather presets list and b) your Weather Settings menu fully works while in-flight.

If everything is OK, you should now be able to install the Community package version of the mod as described in the main post.
