Description

Includes SP1, released March 18, 2019

Introducing HiFi’s first weather engine for the X-Plane platform……

Active Sky XP (ASXP) brings the popular award-winning Active Sky weather engine to the X-Plane platform for the first time. Using a hybrid weather depiction interface through X-Plane 11’s weather API, a realistic, high-performance and high-fidelity weather experience is realized.

 

Features Spotlight


    • Active Air Effects

      Replaces internal X-Plane turbulence and air effects, providing enhanced turbulence, drafts, thermals, terrain-based wind effects, surface friction, gusts, variability, wake turbulence, microbursts and more

 

    • High-Performance Weather Depiction

      Uses internal X-Plane 11.2x/11.3x cloud depiction for maximum performance and smoothness, with multiple weather depiction modes including theme cell “real weather” mode and global static mode – VR compatible and optimized!

 

    • Active Sky Weather Engine

      An evolved version of the Active Sky platform brings the core features that made Active Sky the leading weather engine for other platforms: Advanced weather synthesis and interpolation, high-resolution global winds aloft, realistic air and atmosphere effects, a comprehensive weather data network, integrated visual mapping and planning, and much, much more

 

    • Voice Weather Delivery

      Active Sky ATIS and Flightwatch are available at any time by listening on 122.00, 122.02 or 122.03 for closest station, actual/current interpolated conditions and destination weather reports, respectively

 

    • Surface Crosswind Attenuation

      Optional, for better ground handling in crosswind conditions while preserving headwind/tailwind component for performance accuracy

 

    • Mobile Companion App

      Use any device/browser to connect with Active Sky over your network and view and control the weather

Limitations


Not a complete visual cloud rendering replacement

  • We have put our previous X-Plane visual cloud rendering replacement efforts on hold (until next year) due to performance considerations and changing API environment/tools that are not yet finalized
  • We expect our visual cloud rendering replacement technology to debut in Q4 2019, subject to change based on many factors
  • ASXP features high-performance cloud depiction with a focus on conditions accuracy, utilizing the X-Plane internal cloud rendering via a hybrid API approach, with two different modes available
  • ASXP also features an optional high-performance photo-realistic cloud texture replacement with a simple texture installation wizard

Windows 64-Bit (v7 or later) Only

  • Mac, Linux and 32-bit X-Plane/Windows versions are not supported
  • In a networked environment, the ASXP application/client may run on Windows 32-bit (7 or later), but X-Plane must be 64-bit on Windows 64-bit (7 or later)
  • We hope to bring additional OS/platform support in the future
  • X-Plane version 11.26 or later (64-bit for Windows) is required

Requirements


  • X-Plane v11.26 or later, 64-bit Windows Version (Mac and 32-bit Windows versions are not compatible)
  • Windows 7 or later, 64-bit Version
  • Active and stable internet connection (broadband recommended)*
  • 500mb available hard drive space
  • 1 GHZ+ CPU
  • 2 GB+ RAM
  • OpenGL 3.3 graphics device (nVidia GTX500 or or equivalent, or better)
  • 1024×768 minimum available screen resolution to display all user interface features
