Active Sky Next SP1 Released for FSX and P3D!

Recommended Posts



Active Sky Next has just been upgraded officially to SP1 and brings dozens of new features, improvements and adjustments to raise the bar even further in high fidelity weather simulation for both Flight Simulator X and Prepar3D v2.4:
Higher Performance
  • New cloud depiction techniques, new storm depiction variations, and improved smooth theme reloading brings new levels of performance with reduced cloud-drawing overhead
Increase Data Resolution and Coverage
  • Enhanced global gridded weather data synthesis provides new kinds of data and over 10 times the previous resolution, offering much improved realism and coverage for all kinds of conditions in all areas, regardless of availability of METAR reports
Improved Oceanic and Sparse-Coverage Weather Accuracy and Variation
  • Utilizing the new data resolution and coverage, oceanic and sparse-coverage flights now include realistic weather conditions and cloud coverage that does not rely solely on interpolation
New Overcast Pattern Fix
  • Overcast stratus cloud layers in FSX are no longer subject to ugly and obvious rectangular patterns during dawn and dusk lighting scenarios when using the new Overcast Pattern Fix, part of the new Visual Fix options
Improved cloud-based effects
  • A new local cloud detection process greatly improves the synchronization of cloud-based effects including visibility reduction and turbulence
New in-sim Weather Request Menu
  • Receive weather updates for local area, flight-plan stations, and winds aloft via an integrated SimConnect text menu that can be used directly within the simulator
New Prepar3D-based Enhancements
  • ASN for P3D is now compatible with P3D v2.4 and includes additional performance tuning specific to P3D
New Dynamic Positional Variation for Sigmets and Airmets
  • Airmets and Sigmets are now fully dynamic and provide variable conditions simulation for turbulence and icing in addition to convective activity 
Improved Stability
  • New installation and configuration routines provide a smoother user experience
