A way to continue races after the blue screen error, maybe a backup to continue it offline.
It's impossible to compete if on a 20 race competition you have at least three blue screen errors.

Thanks

It would be great if you could pull in weather data from somewhere like windy.com or perhaps their source. They cover the entire planet with weather data:
  • Thermals vs time
    Temperatures vs altitude and time
    winds vs altitudes and time
Example southern California and Arizona thermals for today
https://www.windy.com/-Thermals-ccl?ccl ... ,m:eA1acUb

or Switzerland tomorrow:

What do you do if the real weather in your chosen area isn't soarable,but you want to fly Condor? You just select the conditions you want in Condor of course.

So I do not see the point of using real weather.

The release time (release from winch or towplane) in the IGC file would be nice. For to calculate OLC tasks you need this time. With this time you can calculate the place and the height of the release too.

There are methods calculating the release time from the track data, but they are not really exact. To read the log file is only possible if the flight is online on a server, especially on OLC tasks it's possible to fly offline, the only log file than is the IGC file.

I want to second this, if it hasn't been suggested already. Live or historical weather data would be amazing, especially when flying cross country. Condor 2's wind realism is pretty weak in this regard.

Perhaps it's been suggested already, but AI air traffic has been a feature of MSFS since about oh, 1990. It's an excellent habit to have to be on the lookout for other air traffic. We even have online tools like https://live.glidernet.org/ and https://flightaware.com to draw from these days.

Obviously I haven't made our position clear.

+1 for historical weather data.
[IMVHO this would make C3 more sim / less arcade game.]

It could be very useful a wind sock in Spectate mode to better understand what the people are doing.

Well, what about all the E-Sport competitions coming up? What about the Virtual Sailplane Grand Prix? These competitions would certainly like to have this feature. They try to do it with current abilities, but their attempts to accurately mimic the current weather are quite lacking, limited by the current software abilities. But there certainly is a desire for this feature, whether you see it or not.

We have already said that the weather will be expanded with more controls. eSport competitions will not be a problem.

For me Condor 2 is as good as I want it to be.But if I would like one thing changed it would be the video option.
Now you can record your flight as how it appeared on screen while playing.If it would be possible to change views and zoom while in replay mode(a bit like X-plane) this would open doors for some great video editing. 8)
And,pleace,stay independent.Don't get sucked into steam... :idea:

64 bit would be nice...

Just had Condor 2 crash on me half way through a task with an "Out of memory" error - I have 64GB of system memory and 24GB of video memory, I refuse to believe that I don't have enough!!
