Wind strength and behavior
A test device monitored wind behavior for 150 days in mainland, Heterocera, Achemon sim. Results are as follows:
- Maximum wind strength: 58.344120 meters per second (=210 km/s)
- Minimum wind strength: 0.000229 meters per second (=0.8 meters per hour)
- Average wind strength: ~4 meters per second (=14 meters per hour)
- Average wind strength is not the same in each day (this is why the round value 4 is given).
- Average wind direction:
- none (if it is measured for days)
- a dominant direction (not continuous, it might turn back for limited time) - if measured for a few hours
- a continuous direction (if measured for minutes).
Also, it is interesting that wind might be completely different on ground compared with a skybox. Close to a sim border, results are slightly different compared with a place in sim center.
