HIFI TECH – ACTIVE SKY X-Plane V11 uitgekomen

0

Eindelijk is er nu een zogenoemde ”Active Sky weather engine ” voor X-Plane 11.26 of hoger uitgekomen. Ik heb het over HIFI TECH hun ”ACTIVE SKY” bekend al van de FSX en P3D versies. De file is 233 MB groot en is te koop op simmarket voor 43.55 EUR. Wat ik wel belangrijk vind om te vermelden is dat de zogenoemde ”cloud textures” bij deze versie nog niet meegeleverd worden en de standaard wolken van X-Plane 11+ dus gebruikt worden. Wel geven ze bij HIFI TECH aan dat ze aan vervangende textures werken en deze volgend jaar uit zullen komen. Of dit dan een gratis patch is of een nieuwe versie waarvoor betaald dient te worden is nog niet bekend gemaakt. Maar ook zonder deze nieuwe textures is deze addon zeker de moeite waard. Klik hier voor meer info en /of  aanschaf. Of lees verder.

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 EffectsReplaces 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 DepictionUses 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 EngineAn 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 DeliveryActive 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 AttenuationOptional, for better ground handling in crosswind conditions while preserving headwind/tailwind component for performance accuracy

 

  • Mobile Companion AppUse 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
