One of the things I like to do on X-plane is activate the A.I. pilot and purposely make the flightplan through bad weather. It's funny to watch microbusts drop an A330 like a kite...  Laugh out loud

On the otherhand, would it be "good" extreme weather training to purposefully fly into a violent computer generated T-storm?

Well, not to the extreme that you do. However, when I'm flying in FS2004, it is almost always in "actual" IMC, with the visability at or near approach minimums. And yes, it is fun.

As normalspeed does, i very often fly at or just above minimums. However I do not fly through conditions that would be avoided in real-world. If there is a violent t-storm ahead, I either vector myself around it, or stay above it. Remember that TS on a METAR stands for "tough s*it". Basicly, I like to train in IMC, but not to where it would be "dangerous."
