Product information "HiFi Technologies - Active Sky XP"

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

Features:

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