Default Quick Question _Weather Button

I probably already know this but is there a "Weather" button somewhere that can give a current snapshot of the local weather, like the one in SH III?

Yes. I believe it's on the deck station. Click the binoculars then there should be a button with a cloud on it.

Usually the letter X on your keyboard brings up the weather.

There's no reference to it in the manual or the quick reference card, but it does exist. Mods make it available. TMO uses CTRL-W, and I think it's added to the orders bar, as well.


Are you using any mods, or stock SH4?
If you're using stock, it should be possible to add the key combination by editing <some file that I can't remember right now> to add the command.





Edit:
The files is <SH4 directory>/Data/Cfg/Commands.cfg
Adding the following should enable the CTRL-W weather response. You may need to change the "261" to another appropriate number.



[Cmd261]
Name=Report_weather
Ctxt=1
MnID=0x3F250006
Key0=0x57,c,"Ctrl+W"

for stock 1.4:

Fuel range at current speed:
So, in: \Data\Cfg\Commands.cfg
Commands.cfg (open with a text editor like Notepad
)

[Cmd257] <------------------ Step #1: Find "[Cmd257]

If you also want the 'Weather Report' "Ctrl+W" make this [Cmd261] edit:

Key0=0x57,c,"Ctrl+W" <--------- Step #3:

----------------------------------------------------------------------
To remember "Shift+G" and "Ctrl+W" add them to your in-Game F1 Help file:
In: Data\Menu\Help\Help.cfg
Help.cfg (open with a text editor like
Notepad
, and find the 'OTHER CONTROLS' section:

[Chapter1.Phrase6]
Phrase=<b>OTHER CONTROLS</b>| NumPad - Decrease Time Compression| NumPad + Increase Time Compression| Backspace Pause|

-------------------------------
Step #4
: and add Ctrl+W & Shift+G:

[Chapter1.Phrase6]
Phrase=<b>OTHER CONTROLS</b>| Ctrl+W Weather Report| Shift+G
Maximum
range at current speed| NumPad - Decrease Time Compression| NumPad + Increase Time Compression| Backspace Pause|

----------------------------------------------------------------------
As always back up any files you edit in case you make a mistake
