Product information "HiFi Technologies - Active Sky for P3D V4 - UPGRADE"

Eligible upgrade products are Active Sky Evolution (ASE), Active Sky 2012 (AS2012), Active Sky Next (ASN, excludes Steam Version), and AS16 for FSX (Cross Platform Upgrade). If you have purchased a license for any of the eligible products, you qualify to purchase the upgrade version at a discount.  

WARNING: Only eligible previous-version Active Sky licensees will be able to use this special software download, as it verifies both your new Active Sky for P3DV4 and old Active Sky license on first run.

DO NOT PURCHASE THIS UPGRADE SOFTWARE UNLESS YOU OWN one of the eligible previous-version Active Sky licenses. Refunds cannot be given.

IMPORTANT: You must have a valid eligible previous-version Active Sky license key to validate your upgrade software on first run. If you have Active Sky installed, the key will be automatically located. If Active Sky is not installed, you will need to manually enter it. The previous-version Active Sky key is entered AFTER entering your Active Sky for P3DV4 key.

Active Sky for Prepar3D V4 (ASP4) represents 17 years of weather simulation engine development!  Building on the Active Sky weather engine experience, ASP4 brings a new 64-bit ASConnect simulator interface, 64-bit XGauge, new Air Effect enhancements, new Visibility Depiction enhancements and more, all specifically designed for Prepar3D V4!

In-Cloud Motion Effects, Weather Scenarios System, Airborne Weather Radar, P3D Visibility Smoothing and Volumetric Fog Integration, Navigraph Data Integration, Map-based Custom Weather Editing System, Universal Web Companion App, Mapping System and a High-Latitude Cloud Squeeze Fix are just a few of the advanced features included in the core Active Sky platform.

ASP4 also incorporates full integration with Active Sky Cloud Art (ASCA), our graphics add-on for both FSX (AS16) and P3D (ASP4).  ASCA includes cloud textures, sky textures, and 3D cloud models to transform your skies, while also incorporated Real-Time Dynamic Cloud and Sky Textures!  This enables realistic weather-influenced texture variation that reloads throughout your flight without needing to shut down and restart your simulator.  You can use any graphics add-on(s) with ASP45, but dynamic texture reloads require the ASP4+ASCA combination.

FEATURE HIGHLIGHTS
New ASP4 Features:

  • Redesigned 64-bit ASConnect simulator interface with tight P3Dv4 integration
  • Updated XGauge radar and weather display gauge, now in 64-bit
  • New Air Effect Enhancements including Low-Interval Smoothing for a more organic and realistic feel to updrafts, downdrafts, thermals, gusts, sheer, turbulence and microbursts
  • New Visibility Depiction Enhancements including new low and high altitude visibility horizon distance adjustment options
  • New Active Runway Data, showing the active runway in use based on current wind conditions via Map pop-ups, Conditions Screen METAR text and Briefing text
  • General improvements in performance and stability throughout
  • Incorporates all of Active Sky weather engine previous product technologies including highly-realistic global weather data integration, advanced radar and precipitation simulation, cloud position awareness and synchronized cloud-based effects, advanced air effects, microburst simulation, wake turbulence simulation, and much, much more.

Core Features introduced in AS16:

  • In-Cloud Motion Effects 
  • Feel the speed of motion while flying through clouds
  • XGauge WX + Radar
  • Enhanced weather gauge with included realistic airborne radar mode
  • Weather Scenarios System 
  • Challenge yourself with several scenarios including a Microburst Encounter, Gusting Winds, Wake Turbulence, and more
  • High-Latitude Cloud Squeeze Fix
  • Fly high-latitude areas without stretched clouds
  • Map-Based Custom Weather Editing System
  • We’ve re-designed custom weather editing and provided a new easy map-based custom weather area manager and weather setting wizard
  • ASCA Integration for Real-Time Texture Dynamics
  • ASP4 works with any texture/graphics add-ons (including default graphics), but when combined with ASCA, real-time texture dynamics and automatic wx-influenced selections are enabled
  • Web Companion App
  • Remotely view and control weather using any device on your local network with new webserver/browser technology
  • Map System 
  • Vector Background Options and Background Overlays
  • NAVIGRAPH Data Integration
  • Airports, Navaids and Fixes now provided by Navigraph!  A complimentary expired database is included with ASP4, and regular AIRAC cycle updates are available with a Navigraph subscription

ADDITIONAL FEATURES:

  • Award-Winning Active Sky Weather Simulation Engine – Enhanced Further!
  • We’ve been enhancing and growing Active Sky since 2000, and this new version expands our weather engine even further than ever before
  • Enhanced Thunderstorm Effects
    Thunderstorms are now very dangerous, as they are in the real world, and require avoidance, in most cases, to ensure safe and successful completion of your flights – Flying into heavy cells can result in loss of aircraft control and even airframe stress overload
  • Performance-Focused Design
    We’ve taken the previous codebase for Active Sky and re-factored it, tuned it, and re-designed many core areas for increased performance and usability
  • User Interface Improvements
    We’ve incorporated user feedback and made dozens and dozens of improvements throughout the entire UI
  • Hybrid Weather Depiction Technology
    AS16 uses multiple integration and depiction methods to provide realistic, smooth and correct weather and ambient conditions at all times, while also providing full cloud position awareness to enable advanced cloud-synchronized radar, precipitation and air effects
  • High-Fidelity Data Resolution and Coverage
    Active Sky 16 includes enhanced global gridded weather data, global sigmets and airmets, global surface data and global aloft data for much improved realism and coverage for all kinds of conditions in all areas without relying strictly on METAR reports
  • High-Fidelity Air Effects
    Wake Turbulence, Microbursts, Downdrafts, Updrafts, Terrain-influenced Drafts, Thermals and more!
  • Smooth Transitions
    Cloud formations, wind, temperature, visibility and every other aspect of your weather is smoothed, transitioned and interpolated for the ultimate in realism
  • Private Server Network
    AS16 utilizes the high-performance and high-availability HiFi DataNet weather network with multiple servers in multiple regions around the world, providing high-resolution weather data and historical data archives for the past 2 years
  • Online Historical Data with Playback
    Fly in weather at any date/time up to 2 years in the past and have weather update realistically throughout your flight according to hourly-archived conditions
  • Active Sky API
    AS16 utilizes an extended version of the Active Sky API, allowing 3rd party developers to integrate and take advantage of advanced radar, icing, wind shear, weather data and weather controlling extensibility
  • Much More!
    AS16’s full feature list is too numerous to list here, but we invite you to TRY ASP4 for yourself and experience all it has to offer!
