Active Sky 2016 - Is it worth the upgrade?

Recommended Posts

No. 

I didn't realise that AS16 is not put out by REX - maybe I should have Googled it, eh?. The link you sent took me to the dev's website and their reseller(s) like JF want $60 for the P3D version. As I already have REX Essentials + O/D, I felt this was a bit too steep just to have decent RW Wx at altitude. Remember, I was going in to this to use it with the PMDG 777 which I still have not purchased.

You're right - the REX part of the equation is a smokin' deal.

Simmarket seems to be showing the sale price for P3D version right now $37.70 US, there was a disclaimer on the HiFi site saying some retailers might not follow their pricing. :)

Hi Bob, I use it for both, have a look through the screenshots page a lot of us on here have posted GA shots using Active sky, I think it works well with both types of flight....

Thank you Wain, I have read that Active Sky 2016 slows down the opening of FSX, I can understand this as I have quite a lot of addon scenery and my FSX is now slow to open. Have you experienced this problem.

If it does I haven't noticed, I fire up P3D /XP11 set flight parameters and go and make a brew or something usually so don't really notice.....
